Nothing beats the views or the slippers. My family and I felt like it was "coming home" after a 2 year absence. The customer service on entering the restaurant and the bar tender were most welcoming. The hot cider is highly recommended. We were not rushed through and when we were seated James our server was professional throughout. The menu... More

We visited for the experience but ended up loving the food too! The two gondola's provided a very nice ride, even in the dark, and they gave us blankets to keep warm. Upon arriving they took our coats and gave us slippers and we sat at the bar until our table was ready. The place is small and very cozy... More

The trip up on the gondolas was fun, with beautiful views. The food, however, did not impress me at all. On average it's about $75 a person. You are paying for the view and the atmosphere though. The food was more the quality of an Applebee's or worse. They attempt to be ritzy and 5 star but they just aren't.... More

Recently went to this restaurant after a several year absence. The two gondola ride and the location at the top of Keystone Mountain turned out to be the highlight of the evening. One of the worst meals I have experienced. Service was average but the quality of the food and its' preparation was far below expectation. Appetizers were strange and... More

The gondola ride at night is worth the dining experience. The staff, both at the gondolas (two rides) and at the restaurant, were amazing, their attention to detail made you feel special. Food-wise, we were slightly disappointed as only one dish (a pancetta lobster appetizer) impressed us and was the only "you gotta try this!". I would do this again.

I decided to make a reservation for this restaurant knowing that the bill was going to be high. I did it mainly because you can't beat having a meal on top of the highest restaurants (in altitude) in the US. We took two gondolas to get to it. The ride itself was nice. We made reservations for 6:45, which was... More

we rode the gondola up early to get some great sunset pictures. the maître d arranged a window seat for a moonrise view. the elk appetizer was tasty with pickled carrots and vegetables. the butternut squash bisque could have been desert. next the mustard/sesame crust on 2 huge lamb chops really got the taste buds going. finally the custard/berry desert...

From the gondola ride in Keystone through dessert, this is an outstanding experience. Come early, enjoy the view and Mike at the intimate bar. Our server Jeff was outstanding, as was everyone we encountered. The food was still the high light.

Friends recommended the restaurant and since they are massive foodies and love good wine, we decided to check the place out. Every single minute of the whole dinner experience was just nothing but wonderful memories. The Gondola ride was romantic, fun and a wonderful experience; how many restaurants require you to take 2 gondola rides to get to it and... More

We have been coming to Alpen glow Stube for years now - for ski lunches, winter brunches and summer family dinners and the experience always exceeds our expectations. From the moment we walk in we feel welcome and comfortable, the staff living up to the "stube" in the restaurant's name. The service is perfect, the staff knowledgeable, the wine list... More
