Alpenrose at the Alpenhof Lodge Ratings and Reviews
I have enjoyed the casual Alpenhof bar many times, and think the food is great. The Alpenrose was lovely as well -- quiet, which is rare these days, and our group loved it as we could actually TALK to each other. However, two of us did think our food much too salty (that could be easily corrected). The others loved their walleye...
It was a memorable dinner. Our daughter loved the fondue and the huckleberry cheesecake. Portions were just right. We just did not like the taste of the " grain of salt" on the side dish. Server was not able to catch up for providing water. Guess, establishment needs extra hand.
We had a delicious dinner with authentic European cuisine. A great chance to expose our kids (ages 10 to 17) to something other than hamburgers and chicken tenders while we were staying at Teton Village. The fondue (both the cheese during dinner and the chocolate fondue for dessert) were the biggest hit, although they also liked the goulash and elk steak. The service was good and timely. The kids all so interested in the experience, no one was on a screen. A win.
Mediocre food, nothing to brag about.
We had the veal schnitzel with paprika sauce (this is hungarian style not swiss style and not at all what I would call a schnizel ) and the duck. Other than the fondue there is nothing swiss about their cuisine.
But the worst part was that my husband found 2 hairs in his meal and the manager response was, it often happens to other restaurants.
We should have lower our expectations from the moment we stepped inside, the restaurant was almost empty.
We had seen the recent negative reviews about the service and almost cancelled our reservation but we decided to go ahead and try it. The service was a little slow to start, but was very good during the meal. The cheese fondue was fabulous service with crusty bread and apples. The other meals were a little less tasty, with the goulash not so good. The servings were a little small and the menu was limited. Wind list nice. Overall, not great but not bad. I would probably eat in the bistro next time which is a little more relaxed and has more fondue options than the restaurant.
Visited for Christmas Dinner. There was an issue with the chef being out and injured. Because of this the service was incredibly slow. It took over 90 minutes to get our food, and after dinner and dessert, we were there for 2 1/2 hours. The hostess was quick to offer us a second appetizer to hold us over until the meal did arrive. The food was great, but the portions were disappointingly small. The bar manager did have quite a few creative drinks and the ones we tried were good. I'm sure they're not usually as slow as they were when I visited, so don't let that fact alone scare you away.
We have enjoyed fondue at the Alpenrose for a number of years. Our dinner last night was far from enjoyable but certainly memorable. Fondue was no longer on the menu but was available in the upstairs bar. Cheese fondue served with bread and apples but the restaurant was out of apples. They were out of our selected wine. We had to laugh to get through the evening. Our poor server had been at work all day and did her best but unfortunately the bar and back of the house did little to help her. Thank you Ana for smiling and being helpful.
Our Christmas eve tradition. Always a great meal and wonderful service. Wanda was our server this year and she was fantastic. The room was a bit noisy with a family that did not seem to care that it was a nice restaurant. The hostess closed the partition and made the room we were in much quieter. Overall a great dinner.
Very disappointed! We made an Open Table reservation & drove out to the restaurant in great anticipation of sampling their food, most especially the raclette & fondues. We arrived, entered the building very excited with the decor & anticipating our meal, as this was a restaurant our daughter in law had been wanting to try on other vacations in Jackson & never had the chance.
We were met at the desk by a nice woman who confirmed our reservation & then casually told us the restaurant had closed the day before! She knew we had a reservation, she confirmed it as we walked in, but never bothered to contact us to say the restaurant had closed. It was getting late & we were far from downtown Jackson, so we took her suggestion to stay in the village & eat at another restaurant close by.
She referred us to a restaurant at another hotel where we had a terrible, tasteless meal & a rude waiter. All in all not a good night.
When I make an Open Table reservation I'm expected to keep it or cancel it as a courtesy to the restaurant. I think that restaurants should extend the same courtesy to those of us that dine with them.
It could be so much better.
The price for a cheese fondue is just crazy. A little cheese, apple slices and stale bread.
The breaded crust on my veal fell right off and tasted like old grease.
My wife's chicken thighs (the meal that is) looked and tested as they had been frozen one or twice.
I mean, it's a nice place but I guess because they know they have a "trapped" tourist crowd
that they can serve whatever they want to at stupid prices.
Maybe we just hit them at an "off" night?
Our last night at Teton Village. Alpenrose served up our last night out before heading home. It was a quiet relaxing evening of good eats and everyone was very friendly.
Getting to the restaurant on the second floor was a little difficult as I'm handicapped and there is no elevator from the main floor to the restaurant. But this restaurant is in a hotel at a very difficult ski resort. You might become crippled at Jackson Hole skiing but not many cripples ski there ... I'm pretty sure of that. So i guess the elevator can be optional.
Food was not good and overpriced. Try Steigler's instead of going here. Food was over cooked and desserts seemed thawed from grocery store. Not happy with this place. Talked to several locals. All had same opinion. New owners are not on site and have no idea of how bad things are.
We have been going to Alpenrose for the last 10 years as a family treat & special dinner to celebrate the holidays. This year was a complete DISASTER! No warning of no fondue, salad missing ingredients & bad dressing, cold spaetzle, and we skipped dessert. Are you purposely trying to shut the place down? That's the track this place is on. Will NOT be back. Sadly.
Disappointing. Ate here two years ago and it was wonderful. This time expected fondue but told they no longer served it, you had to go to the bistro and we weren't the only ones surprised by that as 3 tables who were seared after us asked for the fondue too. Salads not dressed and missing one key ingredient. 2 wait staff for the entire restaurant and as hard as our sever tried to be attentive, it was impossible. We felt sorry for that person as it is clearly managements choice to under staff. Sadly with all the amazing dining choices in Teton village, we won't be back.
We visited the Alpenhof in search of fondue. When we were seated we were told that we would not be able to order fondue downstairs in the restaurant, that it was now only offered upstairs. And then we watched them serve fondue to another (large) table seated nearby (yes downstairs). During our meal we noticed several other parties arrive and then promptly leave when they found out the same. We should have left. The atmosphere was depressing, the food pretty poor, and there was only one waiter and one busboy for the whole restaurant. Kudos to the waiter who did an amazing job trying to keep everyone happy. Sadly the effort fell a bit short. We will not be returning, but we are sad about that. This had great potential. They need to offer the signature dish in both levels of the restaurant, and especially during the holiday week.
My husband and I were looking forward to Christmas dinner here as we had a fantastic meal here years ago. What a bomb. My steak was the only good thing on my plate, asparagus was just that, nothing on it. A potaoe couquette was ice cold, just out of fridge cold and tasteless to boot. My husband got one of their dishes listed as a specialty as was mine. A very small portion of overcooked, tasteless walleye. Your specialties need to be knock your socks off good. I can't imagine going.
We looked up this place on line and came for some schnitzel. The first thing we noticed is the menu did not match what was listed on line. The Jager schnitzel was not offered at all as listed on line, only the weiner schnitzel. Also, both were listed on line as having a sauce and when the weiner schnitzel arrived, it was just a plain breaded patty with lemon. The spaetzel had way too much pepper and was in very small quantity. My husband substituted the spaetzel with mashed potatoes and that's all they were. Just mashed potatoes with no milk, butter, seasoning, or flavor. The red cabbage was very good. Overall, the food was just okay and we would not be going back.
The wood work has a nice European feel. The service was very pleasant
Our room was comfortable but dated. The beer club mugs provided for use in the inn was a fun touch for me. 4 dollars for a liter of beer in a resort type stay was great! Breakfast was well done.
We had expected more food selection that we equated to our time in Germany and ski trips in Europe but that is our fault for not studding the menus- we had the wieners snitzle and it was very good.
We wanted to go to the 4 Seasons but it was fully booked so we chose the Alpenrose as a second choice. It was somewhat disappointing to be told that the regular (downstairs) dining room was closed and we would have to eat upstairs in the Alpenhof Bistro area. The food was good, the server was prompt. HOWEVER if you are mobility-challenged, this is not the restaurant for you. If I was still in my wheelchair, it would be impossible. I have difficulty with stairs, so I asked for the elevator. That was a bit down the hall, and when I got off it on the 2nd floor, I still had to negotiate stairs to get into the restaurant. So no ADA requirements because this building was built before that?
have previously eaten in Alpen Rose dining room and it was very good. since my last visit they apparently have combined the dining room and the bistro. Our initial impression was that they were very disorganized. we were seated promptly and probably didn't need a reservation at all. We ordered the fondue (a very expensive appetizer) as our entree. The server made no less than 3 (and probably 4) visits to the table to light the sterno flame. We were served a generous portion of apples and bread but a relatively meager (for the price) serving of cheese. all in all i probably won't return as there are too many good restaurants in Jackson to justify the short drive to Teton Village.
We stayed at the hotel one night in June. It is right next to the aerial Jackson Hole tram and we rode the tram up the mountain before dinner.
Our dinner was excellent. We'd been in Bavaria in September, and the hotel itself and the food in the restaurant were just like being in Europe again. Actually, the food was even better than in Europe.
Most of the tables of diners were staying at the Alpenhof Lodge. It is in Teton Village and rather remote as it's not actually in Jackson. It is beautiful there.
The included breakfast was heavenly with all of the European treats you'd expect. It was the best waffle we'd ever had -- shaped like hearts, and cooked perfectly -- topped with whipped cream and strawberries. Yum!
Alpenhose promises to deliver but it doesn't. Our meal took over two hours and the waiter was not attentive to details. Over the two hours our water glasses were only refilled once - we would ask for basic things - salt, additional water - even things that we ordered - and none of these requests would be fulfilled. I would say if the restaurant was busy it may have made sense but we were one of four tables! This restaurant was an expensive joke that wasn't funny. One of the two worst dining experiences I've ever had in my life.
We have been here before and wanted to treat our girls to the triple cheese, beef, and chocolate fondues. It's fun as we all are interacting in the meal. Delicious! Service usually attentive was off that night. Our second glass of wine never came in time for the meal so we cancelled it.
watery sweet liquid on meat. meat had no evidence of marinade except it was mushie but it had no taste raclette was an embaressment 27 cents worth of cheese and a few tiny vegetables for $12.00 service was good glass of wine was bitter not like any light red wine I ever tasted before I should have sent it all back but I was in a state of shock---I then noticed the restaurant was practily empty .service was attentive get rid of the chef quick
What a pleasure to find a dining room with good service, a calm atmosphere and delicious food. Portions are such that you can enjoy a three course meal (starter, entree and dessert) and not feel stuffed. I noticed that other reviewers complained of small portions. I couldn't disagree more; the portions are very much in line with recommended servings and not the 'feed 2-3 people' ones so often found at restaurants now.
The trout crepe, jäger schnitzel for me and my husband's beet salad and pfeffersteak were all excellent. We loved our meal there!
This just wasn't for us. The fondue was disappointing. You essentially cook raw meet in hot water. No seasoning whatsoever. Three sauces came with the entree but our server couldn't tell us what they were. I think one was ground mustard from a jar. The salad was wilted and the dressing was warm. The decor is charming but a dog was barking (in one of the hotel rooms) the entire time we were dining.
