Quality pub fare

Atmosphere's not much to get excited about but the food quality and value is excellent. Recommend the locally made and sourced bratwurst dinner. Portion sizes adequate for average appetites but not overly generous.

I have eaten here a couple times and the only really good thing I have had is the burger. The rest just tastes blah. For what they charge it totally isn't worth it. The service is SLOW. In fact every time I go, the waitress has forgotten to bring me my drink, which would be ok if they busy but... More

In Smithers everything is closed on Monday nights except Alpenhorn. We still liked this place with good food and very good service. It was crowded with lots of local patrons which is a good indicator.

We have stopped at the Alpenhorn several times now on our way through Smithers. The food is always very good and the service spectacular during the dinner hour. If you go later the service can be a bit slow and sketchy. Love the atmosphere of this place and the airplane propellor fans over the bar.

Good place to be near the hotel. Good variety in the menue, even for veggies. Nice atmosphere, good service bij freindly staff. Although it quite a big place it's not too noisy.

When you walk into this (mostly) quiet Pub / Bistro, you will not fail to be impressed and inspired by the beautiful decor. High ceilings, dark polished wood railings, cast iron fixtures, and a low light level make for a comfortable setting. The menu is varied, the beer list extensive, and the serving staff is always friendly. Seating by a... More

We stopped by this beautifully decorated pub. The food was above average pub food. I had the Moose tracks which were awesome with the Beef Dipper which was ok, needed a bit more flavor in the au jus. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Lots of big screens for the sport fanatics. Warm and comfortable, C'mon in and check... More

Stay away from the wok meal. It's more like a soup than a stir-fry. Way too much sauce. Not your usual good pub food.

We stopped in for wings night after driving for a few hours and were very happy. We had 4 different kind of wings and they were very good. The service was fast and friendly and you can watch the game while sitting. It is fairly loud would be the only drawback.
