Suddenly Alice's restaurant up!

Very good hamburger when some stray hungry Swedes come to Alice's. After having gone over a breathtaking route from Carmel

I've heard about Alice's over the years from various car magazines, but stumbled on it will visiting the area and traveling the Skyline Drive. the food was average, but the real fun is sitting back and watching the cars/bikes roll in and out.

This is the best place to take a break when driving along skyline and watch the different motorcycles and exotic cars pass-by and more likely stop as the owners come in for a bite. The front patio seating on the picnic tables is essential, especially if you have never been there before so you can have a great view. There... More

Me and a couple of my motorcycle friends took the bikes from Mountain View up the fantastic roads towards Alice´s. It is truly a great ride. It is also a very beautiful view. We arrived after the great ride and went in to Alices which is not a luxorious place at all but I suppose it has its charm somehow.... More

You arrive at Alice's by driving through miles of beautiful, dense redwood forest. The place itself is pretty divey, but that's how the locals seem to like it. Interesting mix of young families, oldsters and bikers. Not where I'd take out-of-towners.

Alice's restaurant is in a stunning location on the Skyline and hidden in the trees however it is surrounded by old and new cars and motorbikes at a weekend. This is not a posh place but is such a fun place. The staff are friendly and the portions generous. It is very reasonably priced too. Good and homely cooking at... More

Great weekend hangout with solid breakfast dishes paired nicely with their spicy bloody mary - the last bit is passenger fair only. Motorcycle and performance cars abound and all this activity among the fragrance of pine trees makes Alice's a stop that is not to be missed.

Alice's is a local funky hangout in the middle of the redwoods, on the top of the San Francisco Peninsula, and it seems to be the standard motorcycle destination on the weekends. Breakfast and lunch are standard fair and nothing to look forward to, as is the standard dinner menu. But the dinner /specials/ are quite good, with a good... More

I had a really great fresh grilled mahi mahi "burger" on a whole wheat bun and sweet potato fries and was in heaven as I was starving after a day of hiking and visit to Ano Nueva State Preserve to see the Elephant Seals. The chipotle sauce for the fries and sandwich was the same and had a disgusting "skin"... More
