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.

Hungarian Goulash is there specialty! Description on menus says beef stew on noodles with red cabbage! Not goulash - yes beef stew red cabbage. 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

Omg. You guys have to get their pulled pork sandwich. ***** Best one I've ever tasted. Took a few mins to take our order but food came in a reasonable amount of time. Very nice and friendly staff. Hubby's bacon & blue cheese burger was 5 stars also, accdg to him. So so good, I was already craving it again... More

My wife & I had two dinners at this restaurant. I rarely get to say this, but the food was better than our previous visits. It was adequately staffed with friendly servers.

We found out quickly there are not many restaurants to choose from in the area we were staying in (Alta Crystal Resort). We chose the Alpine Inn restaurant because it was close enough and wanted to get a view of the gondola for a future expedition. It was virtually a ghost town. It seems (at least when we were there)... More
