Tremendous staff. Great food, but Century Bar & Grill Alpine beats Reata with their amazing chef. Be sure & make reservations. Lots of disappointed customers turned away while we dined. Absolutely we would eat here again but if only one night in Alpine we'd pick Century Bar & Grill. You can't lose either way.

We ate at the Reata while visiting Alpine and we were pleased with the meal. The menu is mostly traditional Texas dishes such as fried chicken (sorry but chicken fried chicken as it is on the menu is too cute), chicken fried steak, enchiladas and chili rellenos but with a twist. For some plates this works well like the Jalapeño... More

What should have been a wonderful evening with friends turned out to be not so terrific, at least where the food was concerned. Three couples were visiting the area from Ft Worth; we've all been to the Reata in Ft Worth and found it to be excellent. Unfortunately that's not the case with the "original." Since it was NYE the... More

We spent several days in this area and the great thing about Alpine is that it's only 30 minutes from Marfa and 90 minutes from Big Bend, so it's a great stop-off point. We had a great dinner here at the bar, the restaurant was fully booked. My husband, with the naturally low heart-rate and cholesterol count, went for the... More

This was fantastic! We drove from Marfa for a day trip and worth it! A little wait but then sat at the bar and had great martinis and great service with Erica at the bar. Mariah the general manager greeted us and chatted with us, she was great! We had the nachos for an app, wedge salad, tortilla soup and... More

Alpine is great and something of a hidden gem compared to the more-famous Marfa. Reata offers a varied menu and excellent food and has Big Bend Brewery selections on draft as well as wine by the glass and bottle. The kitchen closes for lunch after 2 p.m. and it can get crowded before then. Try the carne asada with enchilada... More

Great place to get fine dining in the area. The seating is limited but not too bad of a wait if you walk up though don't try getting a seat a couple hours before close. The location is walking distance from most of the hotels in the area and is close to many of the town attractions. I had the... More

This is a cute and cozy restaurant in Alpine. For being the #1 rated place to eat on Trip Advisor, I expected more. We didn't realize the restaurant was so small. We went on the Monday night after Christmas. The hostess politely informed us that they were full by reservation and put us on a wait list to be called... More

We have been told by many friends that we needed to stop by this place for dinner. We decided to come in for lunch and we still needed a reservation. Gratefully they got us in right away and we were served the most amazing Carne Asada with an enchilada on top. What a creation that was and its one of... More

Although there are many fast food restaurants in Alpine, TX, there aren't many good dining choices there. After an active day at Big Bend National Park the long drive back to Alpine gives travelers plenty of time to get hungry and we just didn't want to go to McDonalds. As I drove, my husband Yelped whenever he got a signal... More
