I love going here with friends that are visiting Collingwood or after skiing. It's the best place to go. It's loud, fun, and the food is delicious. You have to get the schnitzel. The beer menu is also awesome.

This is a busy place so be prepared to sample some of the great local beers while you wait for a table. Trust me it is worth it. The schnitzel is superb and the bonus is you get to take the rest home for a snack tomorrow Service is prompt and friendly, and the decor is like no other Enjoy!!

We are from Mississauga and staying at a B & B west of Meaford. We made the 35 km drive to the Alphorn, only to find a sign on the door saying that they are closed for a Fall Break. TripAdvisor and their website showed nothing about being closed because we did our research before making the drive. Shame on... More

Every time we come here we are even more pleased with our meals than the time before. Decor and ambiance is rustic and cozy, makes you feel at home. Food is always cooked to perfection. The cook/slash owner in the back is easy on the eyes as well, which doesn't hurt.

Décor hasn't changed in 25 years (That's ok ) but neither has menu. frozen vegetables, no presentation, schnitzel and racalette (spelling?) good but so far behind times - its like dinner at Grandmas - ok just don't expect wow. Time for a chef to up the game - be creative - make the plates look good. Change the menu (if... More

We ate here many years ago and were unsure about returning after reading a few reviews. However, we were not disappointed. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Although the place was quite busy on a Thursday evening and there were only 2 wait staff we did not wait long for our food. We thoroughly enjoyed our very large portion... More

I've gone twice in the last few months and enjoyed each visit. One was with friends and then with family. Suitable for both.

Friends of ours from US who are German descent and know their Schnitzel. It was ok, but not really Canada's best. It was good mind you, but missing something. We had a steak that was good and pork medallions that were very good too. Salad was plentiful and tasty. We had dessert, one was a crepe but the crepe was... More

We were a party of two, and just happened by this restaurant. We were heading from the Thornbury area to Wasaga. It looks a little unassuming from the road, but was just fine inside. A little over the top as far as the décor, but the food was great. We had the schnitzel special, which consisted of a LARGE piece... More
