Summit Club open to public for reservations

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- People in Michiana are getting a rare treat.

The Summit Club in Downtown South Bend is open to the public, but you have to make a reservation.

Here's a picture from the restaurant that sits atop of the Chase Tower.

Usually, you need to have a membership to go, but the club is celebrating its 40th anniversary.

The restaurant will be open to the public through April 30.

That view comes with a price. We checked the menu online, and ala carte entrees range from $26 to $52 for dinner.

I've eaten at the Summit Club a number of times and the most impressive part of the experience was the view. Following the view was the wait service, although in the intervening years I've also seen that waiter at other local establishments. The food was average for the price. Given the cost of the membership and minimum billings you'll experience, and my experience of the food, I just didn't see the point of joining. As my last time there is now close to six years ago, perhaps they've upgraded the kitchen staff and so forth and the quality has improved.

I just can't see spending that kind of money, and not knowing the service/quality, when LaSalle Grill is down the Street.
I'd rather go to LaSalle where I know how fabulous the food/service is and feel comfortable spending the money.

I've enjoyed several meals in the past but I haven't been in years. I suspect the quality has gone down as their revenue has in this economy. I used to hear people talk about going but haven't heard anyone mention the club for a long time. I'm on the fence about taking advantage of this offer. Besides, I'm not sure I trust the of the building with the underhanded dealings of Oliver Davis and the Chase Tower. :lol:

I'm sure Mark Tarner would be willing to "escort" you there for lunch sometime. I'm sure he's a member. :twisted:

Can we depend on the elevator? Also, what about building security: might we run into some of DTSB's itinerant residents?

I agree, been there, done that. Not too impressed when compared to other options.

Looks like we are, for this area, an unrepresentative group of sophisticated diners. :D
