We had dinner a Friday night at Alpen Restaurant. It was not crowded at all. The food and the service was great. Will return.

The prime rib, trout, salmon, and burgers are always my never-fail go to's. They have a wide selection to suit anyone you may be having dinner with (2 menus) and the wildlife is abundant to enjoy during your meals or drinks.

Friends recommended dinner at the Alpen Restaurant during a recent visit to Beech Mountain. I will say that the trout I had was very nice and substantial. Overall a good meal and one of the better options in the area.

We've visited a number of times for lunch. The food is always very excellent, as is the service. Enjoy the deer visiting on the lawn.

Many restaurants were closed at this time, but we were happy to find Alpen open. All of the staff pitched in when the place got busier than expected, and made the experience great! Our food was good; steak, pasta, even desserts. Also enjoyed watching deer...More
