The Alpen Rose is dependably good with a wonderful quiet atmosphere. It is lovely to be able to have a conversation with your dining partners without having to shout to be heard. The gorgeous carved wood interiors are also a standout feature. There are several items on the menu that I find I return to as they are always excellent... More

My wife and I had a relaxing dinner the food was wonderful. The service staff did a fine job of being proving service but not hovering. We had time talk and enjoy the time together

Went for hosted business meeting/dinner. About 30 people there. Had roast beef with whipped potatoes & broccoli. The beef was outstanding. Sometimes I go in just to look longingly at the array of deserts in the front cafe area.

Nicest restaurant in town for that special dinner. Elegant, quiet, excellent food. Lunch on outdoor patio or to go. Take out cakes and desserts are highest quality.

There were a lot of things to chose... More

Really cool atmosphere. Friendly staff, but they were having some issues in the kitchen that night. The appetizer was good, which was the artichoke dip, delicious... The fish and chips had good flavor, but the fish breading was soggy. I think they had a bad day, and I will give them another shot someday. I still think this place is... More
