Absolutely a must-go for supper— and dessert! My wife said the salad with the homemade ranch dressing was phenomenal, and the steak we had while there was excellent as well. And then there’s the desserts!! We had the chocolate tower and the New York cheesecake...More

The best service we had in South Dakota! Our wait staff was fantastic. The food was great even our picky eater was satisfied. The deserts are all homemade, save room!

We've eaten and reviewed a few other places in Hill City. This is the best place. Lots of great selection of salads and sandwiches. You will not be disappointed. The only thing you'll need to be aware of is they do not accept credit cards.

If you want to get in get their early as it is always a wait and can get long lines. The food is all worth the wait the steaks are so good and will melt in your mouth.

The Alpine Inn's lunch is always awesome. I usually get the Monte Cristo. It comes with a side of German Potato Salad and a side of raspberry dipping sauce. The desserts are awesome. I recommend the Napoleon for dessert.

Simple review of our experience: excellent food (filet mignon), house made desserts (save room) and exceptional service. Well worth the wait!

One of my favorites in Hill City. Only two options on the menu, steak or vegetarian. Both were very good. Great steaks, cooked to order. Prices were super reasonable and the service was great.

I had a wiener schnitzel, which should be right up their alley and it was inedible. On a rather small oval shaped plate they piled on some five side dishes, potatoes, sour crout, a piece of bread, some red cabbage and more and on top...More

Went with my family to Mt Rushmore and asked the locals what restaurant they recommended! This was the restaurant locals loved. Excellent steak at a very good price! Atmosphere was great! Hill city was also a really neat town! I would highly recommend this restaurant...More

I visited last week after my husband has raved about it for years because he usually visits during Bike Week in August. The filets are great and the lettuce wedge is awesome. Try the raspberry custard dessert cup! Service was great.
