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

We ate here with another couple and we absolutely loved it. It was blustery and snowy and they gave us warm slippers to wear when we came in. The food and service was top notch and will definitely eat there again the next trip. Beautiful gondola ride on the way up!

I had come to Keystone to visit old skiing friends, but not to ski and the challenge was to get to the top by gondola without paying fortune. A friend, and former ski instructor, found that if you go for lunch at the Alpenglow Stube they'll throw in the gondola ride, which provided the idea opportunity. They have fixed price... More

I was gladly surprised that it being high-end and on a ski resort (up at the mountain, accessible by gondola) the prices, while certainly not cheap, were competitive and acceptable for what you get. The service was ok, nice, albeit nothing to write home about. Nice wine list and several game meat dishes, well cooked. Cozy and romantic. Worth it.

After a great gondola ride up the mountain our expectations were high! You will switch to a second gondola to complete the ride once you reach the top of Dercum mountain. Easy check in at the River Run ticket counter. Be sure to ask for blankets at the gondola station if it's cold out. The atmosphere, service, quality and portions... More
