“Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

This was within walking distance of our hotel, so that was great. It was a beautiful fall afternoon and we ate on the patio. Had two delicious burgers and beer. Our waiter was great, I believe he was half owner, and he gave excellent service and was very friendly.

“Great pub and wonderful food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

We had dinner at the pub. There were 10 of us and we all enjoyed our meals. They had a very good wine selection and we all enjoyed the atmosphere. Lots of room between diners.

“Slow service and small portions”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

I have eaten at the Alpenhorn several times over the last few months. The food itself is good but I find the portions too small and very pricey. Also the service is slow and not very attentive. TV screens are small and the quality is poor, especially for hockey.

“Love the patio in the summer!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

Ate here for dinner out on the patio during a warm September evening. Really liked the variety of options on the menu. My man enjoyed the extra salmon menu they had on. The service was really great, it got busy after we were seated, but our waitress did a great job. Usually when we eat out I can never finish my meal. We were looking at the appies but decided not to get any as we were travelling and didn't want leftovers. We didn't realize that the portions were smaller than most places we eat at and would have got appies had we known that. I still think the price was reasonable because the food was fantastic! so fresh and full of flavour. We just weren't stuffed when we left. but overall it was a great experience and next time we stop I will remember and try an appy first!!
