“The Northwest’s Highest Restaurant”


Hours of Operation

Lunch hours: 11:30 am – 4 pm; Drinks until 4:30 pm

Breakfast hours (July-August only): 9:15 am – 11 am

The Summit Grill at the Tramway upper terminal offers food and beverage options. The Summit Grill service is on the Alpine Patio and is located at the tramway’s upper terminal which sits at the 8,150 foot level of Mt. Howard.

The alpine patio offers guests table service dining overlooking the beautiful Wallowa Lake and the majestic peaks of the Wallowa Mountains. This European alpine setting, in one of Travel Oregon’s designated 7 Wonders, is a spectacular environment in which to enjoy a leisurely lunch, snack, or a favorite beverage.

The table service menu offers a wide variety of casual food. The Bistro style menu serves the freshest Northwest cuisine at a very affordable price. The sandwiches are especially good when accompanied with one of our several home-style soups or chili. Our ultimate burger is truly a meat-lover’s favorite.

We serve a number of well-known beers and micro brews including from our popular locally brewed Terminal Gravity. If you prefer, we offer a variety of wines.

Hiking at Summit Cafe


Before or after eating at the Summit Grill & Alpine Patio, we invite you to go for a hike and enjoy over 2 miles of trails with spectacular viewpoints and an abundance of great scenery.

The quiet peacefulness at the summit area and dynamic scenery is why the Wallowa Mountains were designated and were considered the “Best View in Oregon” and is truly a place to remember.
