Must for great steak

We had a group of 16 (10 kids). We were able to get reservations one day in advance. The steak was phenomenal! Save room for desert - they had some great choices. Our waitress was one of the best I've ever had. I know why people along the way said it was a must!

I love the lunches here although the steak dinners are good too. They also have a dinner vegetarian meal that's good. You can pick any dessert and it's a win! Service is always great and the wait for a table is well worth it!

Food is great. Wide variety, from lite to heavier dishes... This is definitely worth your time...and if you sit on the porch you avoid the wait for a table. Had a salad wedge, I know it doesn't sound like that much but it was GREAT. Everyone in our party of five liked this restaurant a lot. Food is an excellent... More

Ate lunch here and found a nice variety of German food plus traditional options. Evening meal has either steak with baked potato and a lettuce wedge or a German dinner option. Limited menu which allows them to handle the crowd and serv very affordable meal. Food is excellent making it easy to choose where to eat in hill city.

Alpine inn is open for lunch and then closes and reopens at 5:00pm for dinner. It gets very crowded and we stopped in around 5:30. We were able to get in. They have only one thing on their evening menu. Bacon wrapped Filet Mignon. It is so good. You can get 6 or 9 ounce. Save room for dessert. They... More

We ate lunch twice at the Alpine Inn during our recent trip. The service was exceptional both times. Despite it being very busy, the servers were always friendly, attentive, and efficient. The food was tasty and the desserts were sublime! I still salivate thinking about the Roasted Apple Napoleon!! If you're in the Black Hills area, you definitely need to... More

There are only 2 menu options each night and only 2 choices for children's menu items as well. The night we went the choices were Steak or German Spaetzle on the adult menu and Speatzle or... More

Several friends went to dinner Saturday evening. The restaurant was packed to overflowing. Two entrees were offered, a bacon wrapped petite fillet and a German vegetarian creamy dumpling vegetable dish with garlic toast and salad wedge. Our table was pretty evenly divided with the two offerings. We all were extremely pleased with our meals. They offer a variety of delectable... More
