Great selection of menu items & very good

This restaurant is located on the first floor of the Beech Alpen Inn. We ate here during our stay at the inn. We were very impressed with our meal. We ordered the Sesame pork chops with the carrots. Our choices were excellent. The spinach salad was big too. Sitting in the front dining area... read more

We were starving after a day of skiing and we stopped at the first restaurant on our way back from Beech Mountain ski resort! We definitely should have wait and drive a few more miles to spend our money in a better place. We had to wait at least 10 minutes before a waiter talks to us. They have a... More

We went here for dinner on Valentine's evening. The waitress was very friendly and the service was a little too quick for an evening out. With the exception of the soup, the food did not meet our expectations at all. We both ordered steak - one filet mignon and one ny sirlion. They came out looking very similar. Both had... More

We didn't stay at the Lodge but the rooms looked quite nice from what we could see. We went for Christmas Eve dinner and had a wonderful meal along with great service. The Chicken Piccata, Lemon Trout and Beef Piccata were all very good.

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.
