First, our waitress: she was great. I'm almost certain she's been working there for YEARS. She had a great sense of humor, was completely service-oriented (she strikes me as a person in the 'gets it' club), and even managed the lack of decision-making at our table with grace and excellent non-verbals to the ones at our table who were also trying to non-verbally say "we're sorry we're so high maintenance").

Sitting in the outdoor room (just beyond the umbrella-covered tables on the patio) was ideal. The windows give you a great view for people watching (and who doesn't LOVE doing live commentary on the passers by?), and when they're all opened up, the breeze is lovely.

I had a pretty decent pork bratwurst here. I didn't care for the veil, but that may have just been me. I expected it to come on a bun (again, probably just because I've only ever had bratwurst on a bun), so that was disappointing but I quickly got over it.

Let's be honest, friends. This is a touristy restaurant in a touristy town. You shouldn't expect STELLAR showing here by the chef. But it's good, it's hot, it's convenient...what more should you be looking for in this scenario?

We had a great meal! We ate outdoors and had a great time. My wife had the Weiner Schnitzel and I had the Caribou Cutlet. Both were great and hers was huge. I highly recommend it.

The Jager Schnitzel (veal in a wild mushroom sauce with spatzle and red cabbage) is fantastic--easily one of the best meals i have had in a while. The apple strudel for dessert is excellent. Service from a long-time German waitress was wonderful. A trip to Vail is not complete without dinner at Pepi's.

After overhearing a Vail regular, we decided to stop in for a drink at "the place where everyone has to get at least one drink". What a great spot! The live music and the view of the city center created a great atmosphere for a cocktail and appetizer before dinner.
We had some great wine and a little taste of their Goulash - mmm!
Service was great. Live music was fun.

Very good german food in a great location. Few things beat enjoying a german beer in the sun on Pepi's terrace.
