We go to the area in our motorhome to see Mt. Rushmore. Someone told us about The Alpine Inn Dinner. They give you an awesome steak cooked to your liking a baked potato, and the best salad dressing I have ever eaten. The entire meal is about half what you would pay at any other restaurant. When you are in the area you have to try this. Well worth the short drive. They don't take reservations, and they don't take credit cards, cash only.

We were happy with our meal here but were disappointed in how long we had to wait and the quality of the service we received. This place is one of a handful of restaurants in town and is always incredibly packed. You need to arrive early (or wait until much later) and be prepared to be patient!

We approached the bar for a cocktail while we waited, but they only serve wine and beer. The menu is very limited, but the food was good.

We finally made it to the Alpine Inn! We have friends that have recommended it for years. They drive up just for dessert!
We were having a wonderful weekend away in the Black Hills of SD as a late 25th Anniversary gift.So of course this was our opportunity to finally dine at the Alpine Inn. My husband tried the traditional German fare and I had. French dip and the soup of the day -Corn Potato Chowder. Yum! To top it off we had to indulge in dessert! I hade a scrumptious Pumpkin Cheesecake and my husband tried the apple caramel cheesecake. Delish! Nice atmosphere too.

Eat here for authentic German cuisine for lunch or enjoy $9.95 filet mignon for dinner. Their hours vary from summer to fall, so before you drive there call and make sure they're open! NOTE: They are NOT open on Sundays and ONLY accept cash or checks (there is an ATM on site). I had my wedding rehearsal dinner here and even with a large group, they were able to produce great food and AWESOME desserts. We eat here as often as we can!
