I went there for dinner with a couple girfriends. Being from Germany, I was a little disappointed about the Wiener Schnitzel and the Spaetzles. We were sitting in the bar area and the atmosphere was great. Live entertainment with sing-along German Songs. I loved the decor - made we feel like home. Service was friendly and attentive. Will definitely come... More

Obnoxious service and very small, overpriced portions are the norm here. Vail is special for sure but there's no need for tiny portions (we has a schnitzel that was 1/2 the size it should be). My wife ordered a Sacher Torte (we've been to the Sacher Hotel in Vienna and had the Tore there) and this was not even close,... More

The German food was the best we have had outside of Germany. It was truly spectacular. Our waitress was also superb. The prices were high, but the restaurant is in the center of Vail so that was expected. Our biggest critique would be that the restaurant lacked ambience -- I was seated directly across from the coat rack so that... More

We love to visit Alpenrose and sit at the cozy bar. The ambiance is super cute - it's a super small comfortable restaurant with outdoor seating also. Will always go back!

Good selection of Beer. The steak tartare appetizer is fantastic. I also had the Beef Goulash as a main dish. It was somewhat disappointing. Very runny and to much sauce. Not enough substance.... ie beef and spätzle Good service!! My son had the viener schnitzel. It came out partially burned. The waiter offered another piece of schnitzel that was not... More

If you've not been to the Alpenrose, you'll have nothing to compare with. but, having gone there for years, we notice a downward trend in quality of food, service and value. We miss the brat and beer lunch special. If it's your first visit, you won't know the difference and will probably like it. We lived in Germany for 32... More

We had an incredibly delicious lunch, sitting on a beautiful patio on a sunny day at the Alpenrose. My wife is a native German and pronounce this restaurant to be authentic. We both love wheat beer and enjoyed having a tall glass, with a full head of foam. My wife chose the wienerschnitzel plate, while I ordered a bratwurst plate.... More

Nostalgic about the old school ski town restaurant with cozy mountain feeling and amazing food? Look no further than Alpenrose in Vail. Truly a Local's favorite! When the sun is shining the patio is great. When the snow is falling the quaint interior is inviting and makes you want to stay for another. Now to the food. This place is... More

Had dinner at Alpenrose. Tried the fondue. It was wonderful. Also had the French Onion soup. It was also delicious. While this restaurant is somewhat pricey I would go back again.
