We had Tri-tip Sandwich and Caesar Salad. Both were excellent. Good service too.
We did not expect that much as there was nothing around the area except for the empty lots. We'll sure be back again for the food and the view.

I have been to Summerly Grill two times and the second time was worst that the first. The second time was for Mother's Day. They had a buffet style brunch the food was bad, especially for the price. It was way over priced. I couldn't believe that ithat this restaurant was so full of people. Ususally when a restaurant is full of people it is a good sign that the good is good, but not so in Lake Elsinore. That is just a testiment of the "bad taste in food" that Lake Elsinorians have. They have a very unsophisticated pallete. The only thing Summerly Restaurant has going for it is the view of the Lake. One of the best restaurants in Lake Elsinore is Rusticanana Bar & Grill, but the restuarant sits mostly empty which is a shame, but that is only another example of their uncultured taste. I am surprised that any good restaurant would set its sites on the city of Lake Elsinore and they mostly don't. About the only good restaurants in Lake Elsinore are Rusticana Bar & Grill, Raviolis, and Vencezo's Olive Gargen. They are all Italian and they are excellent. I am surprised they stay in business in Lake Elsinore. The other best restaurant that is not a chain is Elvira's Mexican Restaurant. It is just a whole in the wall, but it is good authenic Mexican food, and they even have Karaoke. Again, this restaurant gets few customers compared to Don Jose's which is a chain restaurant and the food is substandard.

If you're looking for a nice, relaxing, scenic place to eat lunch with an outdoor patio in or around Lake Elsinore then Summerly Grill is the best place we know of as of August 2008. We've eaten lunch now there about three times over several months and the experience has been very consistent.

As far as we're concerned, the two best menu items are the Caesar salad and the smoked meat. Nancy and I love Caesar salad and the lunch chef at the Summerly Grill seems to whip his (or her) Caesar dressing up from scratch.

As well, they have a small smoker on site that they use to smoke pork or beef. I love anything smoked so it tastes pretty good to me. Nancy on the other hand only likes smoked pork & beef if the smoke's not too heavy. She likes the meat at Summerly Grill.

The service is very friendly and it's never been very crowded the three times we've had lunch there so it's a very relaxing place to eat.

The last two times we've eaten there they've had special parties set up for some sort of corporate dining event. While they have a small indoor dining area the outside space is expansive which lends the Summerly grill as an ideal location for any size dining party that wants to be outdoors.

As you can see from the menu, the prices are very reasonable.
Bottom line? For a casual but scenic outdoor relaxing lunch experience, this is as good as it gets in the Elsinore valley.
