First time at The Summit Restaurant. March 2015 Arrived with reservations at 5:00 on Friday. Quiet only a few tables seated. Was greeted promptly, seated and handed a wine list. Enjoyed a glass of wine, stuffed mushroom appetizer, my husband had NY Strip and I had the crab cakes. The appetizer was absolutely wonderful. Wonderful taste. Steak was listed as... More

This is a gourmet dining experience surprisingly found in a small town in southwest Virginia. The atmosphere is great, as it is a converted Victorian house sitting on a hill overlooking downtown. In warm months there are outdoor seating options. The interior is tastefully restored Victorian, with multiple dining rooms having been created from the various rooms in the house.... More

Always eat here on special occasions. The selections are based on what is best available based on the chef's decisions. Never have had just an average meal. The dining atmosphere is in an Victorian house with many parlor-like rooms. It is pricey but you get what you pay for. For two people with dinner and wine expect about $80- 120.

This was our first visit to the Summit Restaurant. We were with a party of five. None of us were overly impressed. We each tried a different menu item (crabcakes, chicken, scallops, shrimp, New York Strip). Each one of us had the same complaint.........the food was too salty. Every item on the menu came with some type of sauce: cream... More

I used to go to this place a couple of times a year. They have a seasonal menu, so I would hit it in the Spring and Fall/Winter time frames. Though it has been awhile since I was there, I still hear good things about it.

We are just in Christiansburg for one night. We found Summit Restaurant on Trip Advisor with a 41/2 rating. We are so glad we went there. The ambience is great! Cassie was our server & she couldn't have been more delightful & attentive. Neither of us like pumpkin or sweet potato but the pumpkin sweet potato bisque was our standing.... More

Tried this Victorian style local fine dining restaurant for a weekday business dinner sitting at one of the outside tables. We were greeted promptly and quickly provided menus. The menu selection seemed rather limited with entrees ranging from $18 to about $35. I chose the lower end chicken and ordered a simple $5 house salad. It took sometime for drinks... More

Elegant but not stuffy....delicious food and wonderful service....a little pricey but truthfully, it's worth it. We definitely would return.

I had a business dinner at Summit about a week ago. This was my first visit to this restaurant and for several reasons it will be my last. The parking is terrible. If you have anything larger than a small sedan it is difficult to maneuver through the lot especially at peak dinner time. The decor of the restaurant is... More

Located n the sleepy little town of Christiansburg, The Summit is a great place for a wonderful meal but the dining areas are in desperate need of a makeover. The rooms are tired looking and very dark with heavy draperies and I felt every spring in the seat of my chair.Paint the walls a light neutral color and and get... More
