Unique experience, where the food is simple, exceptionally priced, and good. Take something good & offer it at a fair price and people will beat a path to your door. This is what happens every night at Alpine Inn. Bacon wrapped filet, wedge salad, baked...More

The doors open at five; get there early because you will find it worth your wait to get in first. They offer two entrees and an excellent dessert menu. The price is super-reasonable. You will not be disappointed.
