Atmosphere galore! Food can rang from traditional European to trendy choices of today. Old world meets new. Beautiful buffet not only brunch on Sunday but during the week as well. Great service.

Food was decent, but the service and overall friendliness was very poor. If you walk in and feel like you're in someone's home, walk out. Disorganized from the start! Anyway, our waitress was slow and after the fact we realized they never asked if we...More

We stopped in here for breakfast and were pleasantly surprised to see that the whole restaurant is decorated like a typical german/austrian gasthaus. The breakfast was really good, large portions and very tastey. Service was good as well. A definite must visit if you are...More

Alpenrose chooses to be different...in a very good way. Be sure to check out the menu, categorized by 'country'.....we went Austrian with shnitzel and a fish which were both very good. The atmosphere is uniquely Europe; the place is huge but divided into many separate...More

This is a great place for a quite dinner with a loved one. The food and service are top notch as you would expect from a top dining location. Reasonable prices ... don't miss the Sunday Brunch.

We had a lovely outdoor meal at Alpenrose; both of us opted for choices off of the "Austrian" side of the menu. The Ludwig was very good, with tasty bacon and cheese providing full flavor to the spaetzle. The Schnitzel was lightly breaded and in...More

good selection of both breakfast & lunch items. Mac and cheese is good. French toast a standout. eggs benedict could benefit from Canadian bacon rather than ham, but still tasty.

There’s a difference between dinner and dining. Imitation and authenticity. Following trends and creating traditions. Inspired by the European Culture surrounding the Alps and the warmth of her people, we seek to craft evenings you’ll remember. Alpenrose is a celebration of flavor and life. Our patrons return time and time again to taste far more than their food. They come to taste the moment. They come to taste the alps. They come to celebrate 25 years of dining excellence.
