Enjoyed great dinner on the outdoor deck. The evening was warm and beautiful, and the service was on the money. My wife and I both had prime rib, which was perfectly prepared. We probably spent almost 2 hours there enjoying a great meal, along with a good bottle of wine. The appearance of 4 beautiful deer on the lawn only... More

We have been only to the bar, however, we have received good service The bar tender is entertaining and very knowledgable about the area. We noticed that the guests at the tables seem to enjoy the restaurant.

It is supposed to be a fine dining restaurant, and the prices reflect that. The waiter was very nice and did a wonderful job serving us. We sat in the fine dining area, and so our choices were confined to the fine dining menu only, which was the plan anyway. The rolls were heated up frozen dinner rolls (I know... More

I have eaten here many times. The view at The Alpen Inn & Restaurant always has something to offer during every season, whether it's the greenery of the mountains, the deer grazing in the evening, or the leaves changing. The bar here is a local favorite. They offer a variety of dinner selections from two different menus, one is causal... More

Love this place- great food and good prices. Nice bar with friendly people. Located right on the Beech Mountain Parkway, so easy access with lots of parking.

From the exterior, thought the menu would be 'bar food' - no burgers on the dinner menu. Food was great but a bit pricey. Didn't get to enjoy the view due to the weather.

We ate here once and the food was excellent and so was the service. We were outside and some elk were in the yard grazing, so we had a dinner and a show.

Good selection of adult beverages...outdoor dining is best...wonderful views and deer that wander about the grounds. Food is a little over-priced and inconsistent...but that said...it should not dissuade someone from stopping in and enjoying time out on the outdoor patio and deck. Relaxing and peaceful ...with a n9ice glass of wine and the killer views.

Loved that there was a bar within the restaurant and that it was under the same roof as the hotel. There is also a patio with great views.

This place was an interesting find. While some of the place could use a facelift, I really felt this place was unique. There was a local flavor of personalities at the bar that felt really appropriate. I ordered food to go and they were happy to accommodate me. Mostly though, my trout was very nice but my steak, a large... More
