Fun atmosphere. Great food. Great beers. Just what you expect! What more is there to say...100 characters is more than I thought.

My favourite restaurant in Collingwood area for great après fun. Tons of craft beers, best schnitzel ever and very accommodating for family fun. Well done!

The atmosphere in this restaurant is aged swiss. The soup and schnitzel were both quite good. The prices are very reasonable. Appears to be very popular with the locals as well as the ski crowd. A reservation is recommended.

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.

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.
