Good beer. Good food. Good service.

That says it all! All the staples on the menu plus some surprises. Good range of beers on tap. Modern spacious surroundings. Family friendly with designated adult only pub area.

On biz in town and decided to try this place for lunch. Had the wok stir fry and was blown away. I highly recommend this place. Great atmosphere as well.

On Fridays I like to stop in after work to have a drink to unwind!!! With a great atmosphere and fun waitresses it's always enjoyable! The last couple Fridays I have stopped in they have a new happy hour which is pretty awesome appetizers for five bucks and beers for under five pretty good if you ask me!

This was a great place to stop for lunch at a local restaurant when passing through town. Decent beer selection at reasonable prices. HUGE appies and deliciously down to earth mains on the lunch menu. Had the trio of dips to start and then ordered one of the Panini's. All really well done! Also had great service in a friendly...

My friend and I went to the Alpenhorn for dinner Friday March 27. It's got a great atmosphere and I've always been pleased with the food. It was super busy when we got there but got quieter within the hour. We were in no rush so it was no problem. We shared an appetizer which was great and tasty -... More

We have been to the Alpenhorn a number of times as it WAS one of our favorite places to grab a good lunch at a reasonable price, considering the limited choices in Smithers. The last two times we went, however we found the quality of the food quite disappointing. Both times we needed to send the “hot” plates back to... More

The food is exceptionally good but the TV's go full blast all the time. Not particularly the right atmosphere for visiting. In the summer there is outside seating which is considerably quieter & much more conducive to visiting not to mention hearing.

Ate here 3 times when I was in Smithers on a business trip. Food is above average pub style, they have a decent beer selection and the service was good. This is a nice big pub/bistro. There is a good variety of food available and it was not too noisy even while the hockey game was on. The pub is... More

We came here after a day of skiing, it took forever for the waitress to serve us. When she finally did it took forever for the beer to come. We eventually were able to order appetizers, but since it was now so close to dinner we didn't order as much. They were ok. The beer was good. Service could use... More
