Group Lunch at the Summit House

We are happy to accommodate large groups with advance reservations Monday thru Friday.  Groups of 15+ who wish to dine at the Summit House must contact a group coordinator for reservations.  A credit card and 50% deposit is required at the time of booking with the remainder charged to a master account.  Summit House reservations do not include gondola transportation.

Summit House Group Menu

Group lunches are served family-style and are meant to be shared and passed around the table on platters.  It’s a very efficient and friendly way of group dining.  Beverages and desserts are served individually.  In effort to conserve water, water will be served upon request only.
