The fondue was amazing as well as the ambiance of the restaurant. We will definitely come back.

It was during the off-season and was not crowded at all. This may be the main reason it was quiet. But great German food such as one rarely encounters.

This place has the best location at the mountain and it's a real shame that the owner just doesn't care. Other than the "faux Switzerland" feel of the place and the nice selection of beer on tap served in big steins, there is nothing to recommend this place. The food is barely passible, the service is terrible and the filthy decor looks like it came from K-Mart.

PLEASE SELL TO SOMEONE WHO WILL MAKE PROPER USE OF THIS GREAT LOCATION

So we ordered a bottle of wine, and she left the bottle with no opener so we couldn’t open it ourselves and had to go in with the bottle to the bartender to open it. The restaurant had maybe 3 tables filled. We ordered a chicken fondue with broth and while the chicken came out raw for the fondue, the broth should have been hot to at least start cooking it and of course, there was no light was on the burner. I have no idea what the issue was but we will not be going back.

The food was excellent. Delicious reasonably authentic German cuisine. Unfortunately, There was not sufficient wait staff. There appeared to be one waitress, a bartender, and another woman doing odd chores. There was a table of 15, and two other tables of two each, 1of which was us. Obviously the 15 took lots of the waitress’s time and I don’t fault her for that but there should have been more staff. Perhaps that is why they weren’t busier.

We arrived early on a Friday night, with a reservation. The restaurant was nearly empty but remained that way for the next two plus hours. Service was OK but at best they ere doing their job. First visited the Alpenhof some thirty years ago and spend many a good dinner evening with family and friends.

Quite possibly the summer menu and the summer facilities (different than winter) and staff are the 'second team' but on a comparison basis, ther are many, many restaurants in the greater Jackson area that are far superior.

We have stayed at Alpenhof for years and always looked forward to dining in their bistro. The Swiss themed menu offers some really delicious and authentic dishes. Sadly, their chef seems to have changed and so has the quality of the food. The schnitzel was tough, the goulash was one note with cubes of beef and a few potatoes in a sauce heavy on tomato and light on paprika. Seemed more like bland diner food. The one bright note is the service. Their young, international staff of servers are cheerful and eager to please.

After waiting for more than 15 minutes, nobody even cared about us and we had to leave. Horrible service.

Highly suggest you avoid this place. Lousy food and venue, even for a casual place in a resort town. This a poorly run/managed restaurant...you can do better.

We were the only ones in the restaurant. This is the second time this has happened. Food was good, but the ambiance was awful—totally silent and empty.

We enjoyed our family apres ski meal! The schnitzels were each very enjoyable. The kids meals were basic and happily gobbled all up. Finished with chocolate fondue which was great!!

Tried a little of everything and loved it all. Cheese and milk chocolate fondue great, traditional German food fantastic. Would not recommend white chocolate fondue dessert.

The Wiener Schnitzel and German Riesling were exactly what I was expecting and hoping for...outstanding. Coupled with the European-style service I'm accustomed to - professional, attentive and inconspicuous, the evening capped off perfectly. I drove in from Jackson on a snowy night...I could have easily dined in Jackson, but trekked to Teton Village especially for what I knew would be a traditional German-style experience...and it was in every delightful sense.

Casual dining. Food was very good - Had Alpen fondue - two cheeses melted in a pot with bread and apples for dipping. Wiener schnitzel was excellent as was the apple strudel with huckleberry ice cream. When we arrived at seven there was a large family with several young children - it was a bit loud. Once they left it had a cozy atmosphere. Would go back

Had cheese fondue two nights running. Compared well to a cheese fondue we had in Zurich just a few weeks earlier. Also the apfelstrudel was reminiscent of those we used to have in Vienna. Our young girls loved the chocolate fondue dessert, of course.
