If you are wanting a quiet place without loud music and a bar and get a great tasting meal this is the place to go in Holland. Most of the other restaurants in the area are very loud especially in the evenings with the bar scene. This place, however, has not sold out to the craft beer crowd and is... More

Our server was great, she went over and above the needed service. The food she recommended was great. We will be back when in the area.

A little pricey, but great food, unusual menu, comfortable, attractive setting with several different dining rooms adding to a sense of intimacy. Their Thanksgiving buffet is absolutely fabulous.......cannot do it justice without listing pages of appetizers e.g., all the shrimp, smoked fish, etc. you could possibly eat, salads, main courses (turkey, prime rib, salmon and on and on) and desserts....

Where else in Holland can you get duck? It was exquisitely prepared and delicious. Even if you don't like duck the fact that they have it on the menu should tell you something about this restaurant. All the food is fantastic. I have never had a bad meal at Alpenrose. You pay for it, but if you appreciate the best... More

We hadn't visited in quite a while. Our loss. Charming restaurant with good solid (plentiful) meals. Love their goulash. Has an undertaste that reminds me of my mother's German cooking. Yum. Chicken shortcake is excellent. Save room for desserts and check out the bakery before you leave.

Went with family for a thanksgiving buffet. I had way too much, but it was delicious and the assortment was great. The staff was really hustling to keep items stocked. Thanks for a very nice holiday meal!!

We were here during the Tulip Festival. Seated quickly for late breakfast, Took a long time to be waited on, took long time for food. Restaurant was not busy. Had to look for straws ourselves. Our waiter just seemed to "drifting" around. If we weren't so hungry, we would've walked out. Food was good, once it was served.

Very good advertising which does no reflect reality. Lack of organization was excessive. We got inside from the front, nobody gave us attention and there were no indication of right place to check in. Despite we saw several tables with nobody, we need to wait 20 minutes. Once we had a sit, the waiter gave us a lot of attention... More
