“Disappointed”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2013

After visiting this restaurant for many years, was so disappointed to discover that new owners had drastically changed the menu. But more than disappointed for the dry, burned spatzle and the cold shredded cabbage vegetable, I has so embarrassed to have invited guests from out of province who might have had better fare at a local fast food place. Pleasant server from former days who was the only part of our meal that I can recommend.

“THE VERY BEST BREAKFAST EVER!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2013

Every time we come to Wakefield to ski &/or have a great night out at the Blacksheep Inn, we always stay at The Motel Alpengruss. These folks do THE VERY BEST BREAKFAST EVER!! We have only ever had a evening meal there once and it was also absolutely outstanding. The chef knows what he's doing...without a doubt!

“delicious food, nice service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

We stayed at the motel and ate at this restaurant a few years ago and then we returned on Good Friday. I had the grilled cheese sandwich- it was Swiss cheese and served with German potato salad-it was delicious! My husband had the burger- very good and we shared a cheesecake- great!
The service was very good, friendly and prompt- when we arrived we were the only customers and when we left it was almost full- a really nice restaurant with a homey feel- we will return.

“If it ain't broke.....”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2013

Havebeen coming here off and on for about 20 years and I always enjoyed the German food and the Gemütlichkeit. The new owners have changed all of that but were too lazy to change their web page or even the menu outside the door. Drove up from Ottawa with great expectations but when we were seated we were given a one sheet menu. One of my favourites was the goulash soup but it is now gone. When we saw the limited menu we left and ate at the Mill instead.

“Love the weekend brunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2013

Complete and tasty brunches, they are open early if you want to get a hearty meal in before heading off the P17 in the Gatineaus for a cross country ski in the winter time. Head through Wakefield and check it out, so cozy. We love doing this on a Saturday or Sunday morning (with my hubby).
