“Good food, authentic European stiff server”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

Walking through Vail Village during the off season and this restaurant was one of the 1/3 of the restaurants in the area that were open for business. Hostess was very nice, had a lovely German accent and offered us a seat outside or in the covered patio area. Weather was lovely, so we chose outside.
Waiter was pretty much like we ran into in Europe. Very stiff and unfriendly.
Wasn't offered a drink menu so asked if they had any hard cider. "NO". "No?" (disbelief) "NO!"
"I'll give you a few more minutes"
After he leaves, I get up and ask hostess for a drink menu.
On the drink menu there are bar appetizers. One of these is a cheese plate. When the waiter comes back, we ask him if we can order the cheese plate and he says, no, not until 3 PM. Ok.

We choose bloody marys, spicy. They were pretty good.
10 minutes later, a table across from us with a different waiter has the cheese plate delivered. Sad face. :(

Husband has Kase Spaetzle and says it's good.
I have the pork bratwurst. Also, good.
Everyone around us is pretty happy with their food choices and everything looks pretty authentic.
Overall, happy with the food and drink. Would have loved to have a hard cider though and a cheese plate. ;)

“We look forward to our annual dinner at Pepi's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

Have been going to Pepi's for 20 years for the fun ambience and tasty food. The Caesar salad is one of the best. My children have grown up sampling the game and Austrian dishes. Recently travelled to Bachrach Germany and laughed at how much Pepi's (and Vail in general) looked just like the Rhine valley! For a good time try Pepi's!! There are 2 seatings in the antler room so call early if you want the early seating. The late seating is always full of interesting people who like to have a good time!!

“Great European/Austrian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

We have eaten here many times and keep coming back for the authentic, well-prepared Austrian food. The service is always excellent and the prices reasonable.

We stopped for lunch. My wiener schnitzel was average, but my husband's jaeger schnitzel was very good.

“European Charm and great quality food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

This place is like stepping into a country restaurant in Bavaria or the Swiss Alps. We were quickly greeted and seated. Our server was very friendly, and knowledgeable about the menu. The menu had a broad selection of dishes to chose from, mostly from Germany, Austria and Hungary. The Hungarian Goulash was great and authentic, I almost wanted another order but decided to save room for dessert which was completely worth it. How could you go wrong with European style pastries.
