WE spent a few days in the fantastic Mt. Rainier national Park, exploring and hikeng. We had a wonderful lunch on the deck outside on a perfect day at the Alpine Inn Restaurant. The service was excellent, the scenery outstanding and the food great.

Lovely lunch al fresco on the patio overlooking the garden. The french dip sandwich with au jus was superb. My wife ordered the goulash with puff pastry, which was really tasty. The kitchen here takes the time to make each plate look as pleasing as it tastes. Our server was very informative and attentive. Authentic alpine atmosphere indoors and out.

Solid dinner choice at Crystal Mountain. Good variety on the menu and all the food was tasty and prepared well. Happy with the meal here. Lamb shank was great. Goulash was slightly salty but tasted delicious otherwise. Ran out of the fennel sausage dish I wanted to try.

After a long hike, we went to Alpine inn for a romantic dinner. The gracious hostess gave us a window facing table, the bar produced amazing cocktails and the food was totally awesome! Everyone was friendly and warm and gave us space and time. Will certainly go there again. btw, my husband love the goulash while i enjoyed the trout.

We ate here one evening on a summer trip to Crystal Mountain. The table had a burger, the lamb shank, the Hungarian goulash and a rare steak. We also had a Caesar salad and veg soup to start. The best dishes were the steak and the lamb - these were really excellent. The rest was good but not exceptional; the... More

Stayed at crystal mountain and this is only eating place in evening. Nice surroundings , pleasant setting, good service. Menu was good but prices very high which I guess was to be expected. Ordered burgers -they were your standard fare that you seem to get everywhere but just more expensive. However we were satisfied with the experience as it was... More

This is a beautiful restaurant indoors--absolutely picture perfect. But on a warm July day, you'll want to eat out on the patio and enjoy the fresh air, blue sky, and fresh flowers. It's a great alternative to the crowded restaurants the base of the Crystal Mountain Gondola and the even bigger crowds at the top. Take time to enjoy this... More

Had a great buffet breakfast. The atmosphere fit what was expected. Very nice room in a very laid back ski resort.

Think there was some on top but it was so dry and stringy could not tell Lamb shank sounded great on the menu. Problem is it was not prepared as it said on the menu!!!😫. Don't... More

We ate the buffet breakfast on the weekend which was very reasonably priced at $12 per adult and $6 per child. Basic eggs, sausage, pastries, oatmeal, yummy crepes, the usual. When my kids did not eat all that much, our server even packaged up the rest for him (which I know you shouldn't do at a buffet but was so... More
