We've been eating at Alpine Inn since it was a little lunch spot on the corner. Don't let the one-item-in-two sizes and modest prices lead you astray---this is a top flight place to eat as any local will tell you. The filet mignon is excellent and the extensive menu of home-made desserts incredible---unequalled anywehre in the world in our experience! You may have to wait an hour or more in peak season---it's worth the wait! Get your beverage in the bar (the pink lemonade is my choice) and sit on the veranda until your name is called. You'll be back!

Our food & drinks from the bar were impeccable. This is a large well run German restaurant with just 3 choices for dinner. I had the filet dinner for $9.95 with salad, bread & potato. If I lived here, I would eat here weekly. Large portions & excellent service. They know what they are doing & execute perfectly!

We had heard a lot about the restaurant- the dinner is either the 6 oz bacon wrapped filet for 9.95 or the 9 oz for 11.95; baked potato, toast and salad wedge included. We got there just a little before they opened at 5 PM and were lucky enough to get in right away. If you get there after 5, they say the wait is often and hour... We enjoyed our meal- it was very good, not the best, but clearly a great price. Enjoyed the decoration of the historic building. We had a bread pudding for dessert which was great and another dessert that was mediocre. NOTE: they ONLY TAKE CASH! We were not aware, but were able to cover it- could have been a problem! You can make reservations if you have 8 or more.

We stayed in Hill City for a few days and worked our way through the top rated restaurants. Alpine Inn was good, but there are better dinners in town. If you are in the mood for the single entree they offer, you might be in luck.

The bacon wrapped filet was better than average, and the baked potato was very good. The desserts were amazing! I had the peanut butter and chocolate pie.

The kids enjoyed their pasta and desserts.

My husband and I ate dinner at the Alpine Inn in Hill City, South Dakota. We had the 6 ounce filet mignon with a baked potato, salad and Texas toast. The fillet mignon was perfectly cooked to order. We also had dessert, a strawberry sundae and creme Brulé. Our whole meal was excellent, and the fillet mignon dinner is only $9.95. Our server, Gabby, was also wonderful. We would highly recommend the Alpine Inn if you are in the Hill City, South Dakota area.
