The food was excellent...I had the bratwurst which was excellent. I normally am not a fan of Sauerkraut but I really enjoyed it (so did the lady at the next table who bought some to take home). My wife had the Rueben sandwich and she said it was the best one she ever had. Excellent German/Austrian Beer selection also. My... More

I had a great lunch here. I had Goulash soup and a Schnitzel sandwich. Very tasty and the service was good and very friendly staff. This was a visit in April after the slopes had closed so there were very few people in town. Great time to site see.

You'd expect a restaurant that presents itself as Austrian would do a good schnitzel, but sadly not. Plenty of meat but it had cooled by the time it reached the table and the spätzle were overcooked. Pity, as otherwise it is a comfortable restaurant woth good service.

I am always impressed with not only the quality of food and service at Alpenrose, but also how good I feel when I leave. Everything seems to just fall into place. Most of my guests seem to share the fun, although the vegies in my life are a little harder to please but usually find something on the menu to... More

A few years ago there was a branch of this fine establishment in Eagle Ranch. At that time my daughter and I (she was not in school yet) would drop my son off at kindergarten and then after reading a few books in the library, head to the Alpenrose West for Cherry Strudel. Well, no we live in Vail and... More

Had lunch here for my husband's birthday. Was happy that they let us sit on the patio with our two dogs & the waiter even brought them some water. The waiter said they are the only dog friendly restaurant left in Vail. We had the farmers plate, French onion soup & a monte cristo sandwich. The French onion soup was... More
