Fodor's Review

On top of Crystal Mountain at 6,872 feet is Washington's highest-elevation restaurant with stunning views of Mt. Rainier, the Summit House is a popular stop for skiers, hikers, and summer tourists, too. The menu features Northwest cuisine, including halibut fish-and-chips, grilled salmon, elk and bison chili, and huckleberry ice cream Sit inside to stay warm by the fireplace, or sit outside on the patio and watch chipmunks run along the nearby rocks. The restaurant is reached by riding the scenic Mt. Rainier Gondola from the base of Crystal Mountain; note that gondola tickets ($22/adults) must be purchased separately. Known for: the views; a leisurely dining experience (no reservations so there can be a wait).
