It's the best!

We love eating at the Alpine Inn at Hill City SD. The Filet Mignon and all of the homemade desserts are fantastic. The German menu at lunch time is amazing also. And, the service is about the best you will find anywhere. We eat there several times each month. The wait times in the summer get... read more

If you can handle just two choices for dinner along with just two seating's for dinner this is the place for you. I was not going to wait for the second seating since they opened and started seating people before the listed hours for dinner. I arrived at the time listed and the place was already filled. No bothering to... More

Now you have a choice at dinner--filet mignon and a vegetarian dish. Lunch is good, but I am not a fan of German potato salad.

Locals go to the Alpine for lunch. Yeah, the filet mignon dinner is good and the price is right, but it's not worth the hype. You'll wait in line, feel rushed, and besides the dessert menu, have no choice besides large steak or small. The lunch menu is very nice and you get to choose from a nice variety including... More

Tried this restaurant because of all of the positive reviews and it was recommended by several local people. We went for lunch because they serve German food only at lunch time. My husband and I both had the same thing, smoked pork chop with German potato salad, spaetzle, kraut and red cabbage. It was just OK for me. Nothing really... More

What an awesome experience! We stumbled upon this restaurant and had an amazing time! Make sure you get there right at 5:00 or a little earlier so you can get the first seating! Otherwise, there will be a wait! The menu is limited to 2 items. We all got the filet mignon, which they had for 6 or 9 oz.... More

I have not had the opportunity to stay at this cute and historic inn but my husband and I traveled to South Dakota in December 2014 and we decided to give the food a try. We were impressed the first night and kept coming back for an evening meal or for lunch. No matter what time of day, it was... More

This place is awesome. Their only selection on Saturday night is two different sizes of bacon wrapped filet. I had the 6 oz which came with a cabbage wedge salad, baked potato & toast for $9.95, are you kidding me? And their desserts are to die for!

Ate here for dinner and ordered the 6 oz filet. Atmosphere is pleasing and intimate. The food was fuss-free and delicious. They only have 1 menu and that consist of choosing either a 6oz or 9oz filet. If you go, you must get dessert. The Napoleon is wonderful and they are known for their bread pudding. Both desserts are sure... More

Stopped here for lunch after Mt Rushmore, everyone enjoyed their food and the prices were the best we've seen in the area. We called ahead for our group of 11 so we could get on the list; we had a bit of a wait and the woman in the bar was really friendly and helpful; we enjoyed our drinks while... More
