Steak is the center of Summer House cuisine. Options include filet mignons, New York strips, sirloins, ribeyes, and 40-ounce porterhouse for two. Steaks are cooked on the 1200-degree Montague Grill and seasoned to perfection. The restaurant prides itself on serving the finest hand-selected cuts from natural and self-sustained sources, such as Niman Ranch, Revier Cattle Company, and Snake River Farms, considered among the most prestigious ranches in the country.

Seafood is another menu staple. Oysters, crab cakes, salmon, and lobster tails are all among their specialties. Also consider half-roasted chicken, Niman Ranch pork chops, and spiced lamb meatballs, While meat is certainly at the forefront of Summer House’s menu, vegetarian and vegan sides are available and are mouth-wateringly delicious. Gluten-free options are also marked on the menu. Fresh fruit juices and cocktails, hand-crafted and boasting Siesta Key’s finest ingredients, are sure to delight. And a key lime tart is the perfect way to end the meal.

Additionally, Summer House offers an extensive list of fine wines from across the globe. Many hours of wine tasting in the Napa Valley and consulting with wine sommeliers from Napa Valley, Oregon, and Italy have produced a wine list designed to enhance the dining experience. Guado Al Tasso Bruciato from Tuscany, Italy, and Dona Paula Estate from Argentina are only two of dozens of wines with origins in California, Europe, and South America.


Professional, top-notch serving staff will make your dinner an even more pleasurable experience. They are helpful, attentive, and dedicated to providing the best service possible.
