We had dinner here tonight (9-29-2014) after a 30 minute wait, also had to wait about 10 minutes in a congested passageway just to get our names on the list. Service was mediocre, poor seating schedule, no reservations for groups less than 8. They only accept cash, and if you are looking for a menu with only one item (two... More

We went to the Alpine Inn as a result of the excellent reviews on TripAdvisor. It was pretty much as described in previous reviews. The building is on a corner and I had to drop my mother off at the handicapped ramp, as she was using a walker. We would liked to have eaten on the outside porch to save... More

Had lunch at the Alpine Inn. They serve German food for their lunch menu. Two of us had the Rueben and the third had a salad. We all agreed the food was very tasty. I substituted red cabbage for the sauerkraut which was excellent. Service as usual here was wonderful. They have a wonderful desert menu. Bread Pudding is my... More

This came highly recommended and we looked forward to a good meal. We had to wait 40 minutes OUTSIDE and then, when we were seated, it took about 20 more minutes to get water and to order (they only serve filet mignon and a vegetarian option. That gave me time to notice that the molding on the wall next to... More

There were only two items on the menu, and I wasn't sure from the description what one of them was. The one I recognized was the steak. It was of good quality, but unevenly done. My wife and I both ordered medium-rare, and mine was and hers was still trying to stampede off the plate. Both had an unusual "herby"... More

There were only 2 choices for the entree - filet mignon (6 oz or 9 oz) or spaetzle. My husband and I both had the steaks and they were good, done just as we asked. They came with a baked potato and salad. We each had a glass of wine and we split dessert (Napoleon). We couldn't believe the total... More

We were told this was the best place to eat and, in fact, most nights we were there we couldn't even get in. We did finally get lucky late one evening after Labor Day. They only have 2 choices for entrees ( 1 meat, 1 vegetarian). I guess they are known for the steak. Veggie dish was ok. The price... More

We enjoyed dining at the Alpine Inn despite the fact that there were exactly two choices for dinner. Well three, if you count the two sizes of filet mignon as different options. It was either filet or spaetzle (their vegetarian choice). We chose filet (the larger cut) and it was fabulous. Dinner is served with a wedge salad, Texas toast,... More

Went on a Friday evening after a long motorcycle ride. It was pretty busy which is usually a good sign. Based on the time we got there I had about an hour wait which was no big deal since we wanted to walk around Hill City anyway. Had a glass of local wine in the bar area while waiting. For... More

I had the schnitzle....it was good, the potato salad, rotkohl, saurkraut, bread that came with it was spot on. Ok beer selection, would love them to have a German beer on tap. It was a bit of a wait but worth every minute. They only take cash but have an atm on the property.
