Beautifully decorated restaurant. For lunch they have a great menu of German food and nights they serve filet mignon. Excellent meal at any time! Always wonderful friendly service. As stated by other reviewers, they are always pretty busy But it is well worth the wait. Keep in mind they do not take credit cards, however there is an ATM in... More

After four years of hearing raves about this restaurant we finally went and loved it! If you want variety then DON'T go here! But if you want an affordable steak dinner in an elegant bed & breakfast type setting then this is the place. Dinner is limited to 2 sizes of filet mignon or a vegetarian pasta dish, but the...

Over the years that I have eaten at this restaurant I have found it to be the top place for Fillet Mignon in the Black Hills. The service is always outstanding and this coupled with the German desserts make for a memorable dining experience. I recommend this establishment in Hill City to all who are coming to the Black Hills... More

One piece of advice... Get here early! This place is crazy busy on Friday and Saturday nights. They open at 5:00pm, if you want to eat before 7:00 I would say get here at 4:30 and have a drink at the bar (they DO NOT take reservations). The menu is very limited for entrées: 6 oz. filet mignon, 9 oz.... More

The Alpine Inn is a must place to eat when visiting Hill City. If you go for lunch, they have a delicious German menu. For supper, they serve a bacon wrapped fillet in 6 or 9 oz. Make sure to save room for dessert. You can't go wrong with any dessert they serve.

We arrived shortly before 5pm and were included in the first seating for the evening. As the line wound through the bar area to the hostess, there was live guitar music. This made the small delay more enjoyable. We four had the 9 oz filet steak, with all but one of us having our steaks arrive cooked perfectly. The one... More

The homey atmosphere here added to the excellent steak dinner my wife and I enjoyed with another couple. They had eaten here before and wanted us to experience the Alpine Inn. The ladies ordered the 6oz steak and we men ordered the larger option. Our steaks arrived cooked exactly as we had specified and the portions were large. It was... More

It's a bargain. Eat here. You have a choice of this steak or that steak. The food and service is great. The main course choices are few but the dessert menu is PLENTIFUL!
