    The Brussels, flatbread and salads were delicious. They were out of the Walleye and sirloin, and catch of the day. Our first choices. That was disappointing. Our server did a fair job, we had said it was special anniversary, requested a cozy window table and were seated in the middle of all the large tables with little view and lots of noise. The noise level made it difficult to have a nice conversation. The wine pour was carefully measured to 1/3 glass. Thank goodness the food was delicious.

    Here for the Sunday Brunch menu the restaurant was moderately busy. The weather was beautiful and the views out over the lake were a nice touch to our leisurely lunch. Started with mimosas which were very refreshing. Found there to be a nice selection of egg dishes / French toast / pancakes along with salad options. Attentive server modifying omelettes to order and checking back for coffee refills. We will return for their regular weekly menu soon.

    I really like how summer place is casual fine dining. Good variety on the menu, with items that are special to the restaurant. My son had the short rib, which looked like something out of the Flintsones, blue crab dip was awesome, salmon was on point, and the pepper elote wasn’t what I expected, but very good. Atmosphere is light and spacious, with great view of the lake and downtown. Tasty cocktails from the bar. I will say that our server, Laura was far from attentive and cordial, like she didn’t want to be there. Not what I would say, service with a smile. Maybe it was a bad day, but sometimes you need to suck it up and try to put on your best face. We will probably try it again down the road

    Absolutely horrible experience the food was disgusting. Waited over an hour for our food, had to send back the salmon because it was raw, then the server brought it back burnt after the kitchen re-cooked it. The chicken dish was so over cooked it was inedible. They would not remake the dish. The hostess was beyond rude to everyone our server was clueless. We had to leave and went next door to Pier W to buy another dinner so we could have a meal you can actually eat. Never would I recommend this place. Mistakes happen all the time but how it was handled was poor at best.

    The halibut dinner was very good. Unfortunately, very difficult to engage in any conversation due to noise level of restaurant. We were in the lower area. If we go again, we would definitely request the upper dining area.
