We went to the Alpenrose especially for the cheese fondue, and once again it didn’t disappoint. Other dishes we had were the pheasant, which was delicious, but the Veal schnitzel was a little tough.
The ambiance is lovely so would definitely go back again. They could update the uniforms for the gals, a bit much.

From the aging wooden chairs, the dated lighting, and the chain restaurant feel, nothing about this restaurant stood out. The food was sub par, the wine selection decent, and service simply average. Just a ho-hum place at best.

For those of us who typically don’t spend 40 bucks a plate on a snack it’s a nice special occasion location. The chef was great made a special plate of fruit for my 1 year old and gave us a bread plate. Service there was great and the environment was lovely with hot fireplace and decor. My only complaint is the bathroom being the size of a closet with a sink, toilet and urinal being shoved into the small room. Other than that nice location and good food. We both ordered the pfeffersteak and my daughter the macaroni which is very rich. I do recommend this restaurant due to the hospitality

The food at Alpenrose was excellent! Several game items on the menu. I got a venison chop and my wife got a buffalo tenderloin. Both were cooked perfection. Ambiance was that of an old-workd Swiss chalet, quiet and unobtrusive. If you're in Jackson Hole and like game meats, dont miss this place.

Jerry took great care of us! The salad was fresh and delicious and the French Onion soup was just right. Our meals were flavorful and spot-on - wonderful reflections of an inspired chef. We decided that the pastry chef was no ordinary pastry chef - to create the strudel that was so light and rich and able to contain the scrumptious and abundant apple filling takes a Jedi Master pastry chef.

We were a family group of 11 including 5 children. The staff was very accommodating allowing us to order from two menus so that we could get both fondue and other Swiss specialties. All of the food was excellent! It was a most enjoyable evening!

It’s wonderful to find a quiet, authentic restaurant. Alpenrose transports you to Bavaria with delicious fondue, schnitzel, pheasant and other German/Swiss dishes.

The food was tasty. We will be back. Have been there many times over the years...this was our first trip back to Jackson Hole I. 14 years. Only disappointment was our waiter seemed very eager to turn the table and rushed us to make decisions when the restaurant was not full by any stretch - and we weren’t just lounging around being lazy. Was weird. And then couldn’t seem to fill water glasses or pour wine. Maybe he was having a very bad day. The host was very pleasant and the fondue was delish.

The place could be so much more. Nothing is really bad. We choose the cheese and meat fondue. The cheese fondue was ok nothing special and the heater keep turning of and the bread was stale . The meat was sadly presented but good. The sauce nice but nothing to go with. It feels like the end of a restaurant.

Big disappointment. For an Austrian fondue place they did a terrible job with what should be very easy to make. First the lights were on so brightly we all had to ask they dim them which they did. The waiter gave us menus that had no fondue on them and then when we asked if they had fondue he said yes but that they rarely serve it. Weird. The food was not good, service grumpy. We had a great group and were pretty excited for a big great meal - didn't happen.

Good, and authentic swiss german food.
Apple strudel for desert is excellent.
Old fashioned settings, out dated uniforms for the servers, old fashion table linen, and chairs.
Classic hotel music, many senior customers

Who wouldn’t want a fondue restaurant in a ski resort to be awesome? And it’s such a simple thing to get right. They fail miserably. Atmosphere is terrific. Fondue actually tastes good. Otherwise it’s awful. Avoid unless you are truly desperate for fondue.

Enjoyed our 30th anniversary at the Alpenrose.

We had a window table overlooking the front of Teton Village.

Service was outstanding and so were the starters, entrees and deserts.

We had the pumpkin soup, kale salad, bison ribeye, veal cutlet, and apple strudel. Each bite tasted like heaven.

We did not know what to expect being in Jackson Hole for our first time. The restaurant's atmosphere is warm , cozy and romantic. The service was impeccable but the food was to die for. This type of Culinary work You would expect in New York City. You are in Wyoming but transported to Europe with a phenomenal menu with something for everyone:)

A winter ski trip and fondue go hand in hand for our group. Although we've always had some misgivings about the ambiance at the Alpenrose, it is the best option for fondue in Jackson, and the food has always been good. In fact, we've never had bad fondue anywhere. Until our recent visit to the Alpenrose, when something was off. The recipe, the preparation, new Chef? I'm not sure, but our experience was ruined. The "fondue" was a big glob of cheese floating in lukewarm Kirsch. The consistency was all wrong. The manager was quite nice, but attempts to fix the dish failed (came back as a flour heavy thick mixture). Although we were offered other dishes, we had our heart set on fondue. Hopefully the issue can be corrected, or it was just a fluke.

We came to the Alpenrose specifically because they had Fondue Chinoise and Raclette listed on their main menu on every website we found. They do not tell you that these higher-end menu items are not available in the main restaurant, but only available upstairs in the bar/bistro, even though both are served by the same kitchen. I have never encountered this at any restaurant before. I could understand these items only being available in the main restaurant and not the bar, but not the reverse. They were also not at all accommodating to my wife's celiac disorder (ie gluten allergy) and served bread mixed in with other items on the same plate despite a specific request to not do so. The simple venison stew I ordered was plated very sloppily with some stew spilled over the sides of what was a fancier presentation plate (and the taste was very bland and salty on top of this). It all gave me the impression that they really did not want our business. For the price paid for dinner, we received a lower level of service and accommodation than we typically get at a standard chain restaurant. Extremely disappointing experience, and not worth the price!

Made a reservation for fondue on Christmas Eve, however upon getting there found out they only take reservations for the downstairs that doesn't serve fondue (no way to know that from website or booking) but the bar wasn't crowded so they sat us informing us that they were out of oil and chocolate fondue. Bar area probably would be great for apres ski drinks but I'd not the best for romantic dinners. While we were eating (fondue was okay, make it better at home) at least 3 other groups came in with the same mixup as us. They'd booked dinner wanting fondue and were told they had to eat upstairs if they want fondue and that most of the fondue was gone. They also stopped serving at 8 even though a lot of people made reservations at 8:30. It's was quite good dinner entertainment but they are so disorganized they have no idea what's going on upstairs or down. Would not recommend for anything but drinks. Then I found out they later told OpenTable we didn't show up for our reservation. Yep, really know what they're doing.

Food was good, service was not good. It took over an hour for entrees to be served. We were not sure if they forgot about us or if their kitchen could not keep up. We did not stay for dessert. We got there early at 6:10, we did not leave until about 8:10, so we were there before the dinner rush.

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...

Quiet. Cozy. Good food. Service/staff was nice, but not especially friendly. Also, time of meal was slightly long. Appeared to have one waiter for all the tables.
