Located in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood, Summer House is the place for sunshine all year round. Warm, laid-back West Coast vibes fill the restaurant making it a top Instagrammable destination, complete with beach house décor, a beautiful retractable glass ceiling, and an all-seasons courtyard patio.

The California-inspired menu from Chef Ben Goodnick highlights seasonal specialties made from scratch with locally sourced produce and fresh ingredients, along with market-driven pasta, artisan pizzas, and antipasti.

Or opt for our tableside option, and have all the ingredients delivered to your table for the whole family to get in on the fun! Kids will wash their hands, use the flour to form the dough, spread their choice of red or white sauce, and build their zae with cheese and toppings of their choice.

    We brought friends from out of town. They love salads and pizza. Summerhouse was a perfect fit. Service was excellent. Our server offered some terrific suggestions on the salads as well as the apps. Mood was fun and we never felt rushed even though we lingered after lunch for conversation. Thanks for a fun time!

    We had a terrific table and the food was terrific. Of particular note that evening was the service. I really appreciated the warm greeting at the host stand and our server who took care of us so graciously throughout the evening. Love that there is "open to the outdoors dining."

    Waitress was good. All other service providers clearly hated their jobs. Not a single one smiled or said a word to us. This is a leadership issue. Falls entirely on them because they set the tone for the staff. Makes this place no better than any other mediocre restaurant experience. Very disappointed given how much we pay.

    Great service, lovely space. Couldn't get out door seating but felt like we were outdoors. Our waiter was friendly, knowledgeable and deserves a raise! It was buys and he handled it all with grace.

    Our first trip to Summer House won’t be our last. What a great spot for Sunday brunch (and the dinner menu looks fantastic as well). Beautiful decor, delicious GF friendly food (thank you LEYE),, and exceptional service. Highly recommended.

    Sunday's brunch at Summer House was truly ordinary. Our order was wrong. Kept trying to catch server's eye for assistance. No utensils. My guest wouldn't eat her meal until I got mine. Her meal got cold. Overall, a bummer of an experience.
