If your up skiing all day you have to make you last stop here at the Snorting Elk. Great beer, food, company and the fireplace!

The best place on the mountain to eat by far. Great service, love this place. We went for xmas eve dinner. The food was very good and they easily accommodated special requests. We were so grateful for good service after the awful experience we had at Village Inn.

The restaurant hosts the Village Inn hotel's continental breakfast as well as providing full service meals for visitors and guests. Dinner is served from 5-9:30. We had dinner at the restaurant twice. We were seated promptly at a table with a view of the woods. We both ordered dinner salads ($6) and one of us ordered the Weiner Schnitzel the... More

WE spent a few days in the fantastic Mt. Rainier national Park, exploring and hikeng. We had a wonderful lunch on the deck outside on a perfect day at the Alpine Inn Restaurant. The service was excellent, the scenery outstanding and the food great.

Lovely lunch al fresco on the patio overlooking the garden. The french dip sandwich with au jus was superb. My wife ordered the goulash with puff pastry, which was really tasty. The kitchen here takes the time to make each plate look as pleasing as it tastes. Our server was very informative and attentive. Authentic alpine atmosphere indoors and out.

Solid dinner choice at Crystal Mountain. Good variety on the menu and all the food was tasty and prepared well. Happy with the meal here. Lamb shank was great. Goulash was slightly salty but tasted delicious otherwise. Ran out of the fennel sausage dish I wanted to try.

After a long hike, we went to Alpine inn for a romantic dinner. The gracious hostess gave us a window facing table, the bar produced amazing cocktails and the food was totally awesome! Everyone was friendly and warm and gave us space and time. Will certainly go there again. btw, my husband love the goulash while i enjoyed the trout.

We ate here one evening on a summer trip to Crystal Mountain. The table had a burger, the lamb shank, the Hungarian goulash and a rare steak. We also had a Caesar salad and veg soup to start. The best dishes were the steak and the lamb - these were really excellent. The rest was good but not exceptional; the... More

Stayed at crystal mountain and this is only eating place in evening. Nice surroundings , pleasant setting, good service. Menu was good but prices very high which I guess was to be expected. Ordered burgers -they were your standard fare that you seem to get everywhere but just more expensive. However we were satisfied with the experience as it was... More

This is a beautiful restaurant indoors--absolutely picture perfect. But on a warm July day, you'll want to eat out on the patio and enjoy the fresh air, blue sky, and fresh flowers. It's a great alternative to the crowded restaurants the base of the Crystal Mountain Gondola and the even bigger crowds at the top. Take time to enjoy this... More
