Don't go. Insultingly overpriced. Most steaks $50.00. ($89.oo for 8 0z lobster + 8 oz steak). Could not believe how ordinary the food was considering what they were charging. Food is ok, not great, would not go back just for the food let's put it that way. Atmosphere is very 1980's, dark wood paneling Seems outdated. If you are looking for a fine dining experience, go downtown to the Chophouse or Shanahans, what this place wants to be, but not even close. 3 star food with 5 star prices.

This is a local fixture for a good reason - the steaks are of the highest quality. This is an old-school, dinosaur of a steakhouse - bearnaise sauce, dark wood paneling, and high prices. I have enjoyed eating here. I also purchased steaks here to cook at home for a big celebration - in Colorado we really should serve the best, and the Summit came across. In a word - Reliable.

We purchased 2 groupon discounts for this restaurant and were excited to visit. Both visits were more than disappointing, we found ourselves a bit miffed. First off, we purchased $40 worth of dining for half price. We drank water and ordered VERY modestly and still went well over the first voucher because of the high prices (just two people). To make things worse, the food was average at best.
We changed our approach on visit two, forget how much more we spend, get what we really want. We did that (still water though) and spent more than double the voucher. As was before, the food was not very good. It would be one thing to spend hard earned money on sub-par food but to sell it at fine dining pricing is outrageous. I think the raving reviews are for a day long gone. I say that not just due to the age of other reviews but because the establishment looks a bit past it's prime. Each time we came for dinner they asked if we had a reservation; in neither case was there but a person or two in the whole place. I think the following they once knew is gone and it's just us idiots. I seriously cannot think of a reason or circumstance where you should give ts place a try, coupon or not.
I'm confused when reading the previous reviews. My experience at this restaurant has ALWAYS been one worth sharing in a positive light. When you go to a steakhouse and purchase steak and lobster, you expect that it's going to be expensive. I've never had a problem with the food or service and the ambiance is wonderful. If you want a less inexpensive choice you can dine in the CABIN part of their restaurant. It has a livelier crowd and a piano guy that plays on the weekends as well as live bands, which are always great to listen to! I've never heard cheesy entertainment at this establishment. I give it 5 stars. Always pleasant and fun!

Went to have a special dinner here to celebrate. Was disappointed overall.
The Beef Carpaccio was great! The temperature of the prime rib was perfect, but wasn't impressed with the flavor (very bland). Onion rings & Fried shrimp were from frozen. Service seemed pretty good, until she got in the weeds. Just seems pricey for a mediocre meal.
I have had better meals at Red Lobster and Black Angus. For about 4th the price. The Summit needs to live up to their prices!
Won't go back!

I took my husband to Summit for his birthday and was sorely disappointed. We knew that it was quite pricey, but were shocked by the $85 price for a filet and lobster tail...and even more shocked when the food came out. Summit is your typical steakhouse - has done little in the past 20 years to update their decor or their menu. No presentation, no interesting dishes, wood paneling on the walls...
My husband had a ribeye, which you could taste the grease from the flat top. My fried shrimp could have come from Red Lobster. Even little things, like the mushrooms for the steak and the cocktail sauce - the mushrooms were drowning in oil and the cocktail sauce was basically ketchup. To top it off, our server barely paid us any attention and we waited for our dishes to be cleared for a good 20 minutes and then ended up having to request the bill.
Summit needs to step up their menu, their service and their atmosphere to have as steep of prices as they do. I do not recommend this restaurant.

I knew from the online menu that this was going to be expensive, but I am shocked and completely regret going to this restaurant. My girlfriend ordered the 8 oz Filet and Lobster tail, the 8oz filet was a third the length of my 12 oz and about the same thickness, then the lobster was the same size as her steak......$85, My 12oz Ribeye was cooked very well but no flavor, only seasoning was cracked pepper on top, I was expecting something special for the price $31, all told we had one drink each (martini and rum and coke) two dinners, the summit sampler for appetizer and no sides and my tab was $177 with just a %15 tip. Ive had a better Ribeye everytime I go to Texas Roadhouse. The ambiance was nice and quiet with a candle for a bit more romantic atmosphere and the service was impeccable. But if you are looking for something special this is not it, plain steaks, regular boiled lobster with butter equals extremly overpriced and regrettable experience.
