The Alpine Inn is the place to eat in this area, but be aware that there is only ONE dinner menu and it is always steak of some kind; you have no other choices. So, save your steak night for the Alpine and enjoy one...More

This was a good restaurant and very crowded. It was a little surprising to us that they only have one item on the menu. I am not sure if it is the same item every night. The night we went it was filet with baked...More
