Decided to try this out since it seemed to have good reviews. We got the filet mignons with toast baked potato and a wedge of lettuce. I didnt eat my lettuce and figured for a supposedly fancy restaurant that we would at least get a good salad, sadly not the case. The steak was fine, just only two items on... More

The food at this place was delightful. It is mostly German food. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful explaining what the different foods were.

There is nothing negative about this restaurant, it is good food, not great but good. We found a great steak place nearby that we liked better.

We visited this restaurant based on a recommendation from someone who lived in the area years ago. I don't regret it for a minute. The food was amazing. This will be a restaurant I want to visit again and again... if only we lived less than 1300 miles away.

The food is outstanding. Lunch is served, but had the dinner instead. Only two items on the dinner, but the steak was great, and deserts to die for. Prices are very reasonable.

We loved our visit here while in Hill City. Very quaint restaurant. They only serve two types of meals for dinner. There is no menu. Great food and we had the best time.

My family and I really enjoyed our lunch experience at the Alpine Inn. There was so much to love about this place I really wanted to give it 5 stars, but there was just too many "almosts" and near misses. I ordered the Schnitzel with spaetzel and Jaeger sauce. It also came with german potato salad, sauerkraut, and purple cabbage.... More

This is an excellent restaurant. We were here with a large group, but the service was great, food was tasty and fresh. Dinner is three items; Large, Small, and pasta. :). L and S are steak sizes, which are done to order. Save room for a dessert, which is always tops! I've been here for lunch and highly recommend for... More
