Amazing Deserts

A very limited menu. They offer a steak or a swiss cheese and vegetable spaetzle dish for supper but a huge dessert menu and the desserts are amazing. The steak was very well cooked but the spaetzle was a little on the dry side and heavy. The atmosphere is also on the dark side, so individuals with... read more

Love Love Love this place, try to eat there whenever I am close! Steaks are cooked to perfection. Everything about this place hits the mark, service, food and of course the uniqueness of the restaurant itself. If you are in the Black Hills, take time to eat here, they don't take reservations so get there early!

I guess there is a full menu at lunch, never made it there for lunch because I was a seasonal worker in the area for quite a few years. The filet at dinner is really good and it is really hard to go wrong with any of the desserts and you MUST have dessert ! it is worth it. Been... More

Everyone is seated at one specified time. No drinks offered in lounge prior despite having a full bar. Just sitting/standing in a crowded room waiting for the door to open. Salad was just a wedge of iceberg - no real creativity shown except for dessert. Crowded atmosphere - not conducive to conversation.

I have lived in Hill City for over 18 years now, and they have consistently good food. It is one of a few places in town that actually prepares fresh food! Made by people that work there! It is one of the few places I go to in the Hills !

This restaurant is one of the premier places to eat in the Black Hills. The original owner is a second generation German who themed the exterior and meals around her European origins and the meals reflect that heritage. Be aware that there are two different menus; one for lunch which is mainly a variety of sandwiches and the evening meal... More

Good simple fare at reasonable prices. As a visitor to the US from the UK we are used to the high service standards of this country. However, Alpine Inn surpasses anything we have experienced so far.

There are only 2 menu choices. Everyone says so, so don't be surprised. [Well actually, I guess you could say there are 3 since you can decide between 1) a large filet, 2) a small filet, and 3) vegetarian (gnocci and grilled vegetables).] The atmosphere is quaint, service friendly, prices good, food mediocre. We opted for steaks (mine small, his... More

Oh my god I love this place. Every time we are in the area we stop and have lunch and dinner here. I wish there was one near my home. The desserts are out of this world.
