Superb cuisine, wonderful service and what a great meal overall. They were able to accommodate a late-made reservation and we were not disappointed. Chef came out after our meal to see if the food was to our liking and to make sure we had enjoyed...More

Beautiful setting, fireplace, wonderful waiters. Food was delicious. Live music was toned down for the crowd perfectly. We had the best evening with our twin 16 year old boys, so you know this place is for real

I like the Alpine Tavern. It's a great neighborhood restaurant and bar. Especially in the East Vail area, it offers something without having to go into Town proper. The upstairs Alpine Tavern is especially fun with a good bar menu, live music and relaxed atmosphere.

NOT 70's tired, high ceilings and the view is to be envied, especially when the Aspens turn. Two menus, great bar, lets not tear down & rebuild. Lobster roll is wonderful and a meal with numerous choice for sides. Pasta with scallops was all I...More

Biased on TA reports expected more. The trout was good, sides overcooked and just barely warm. This restaurant is located in East Vail, so prices are more reasonable than Vail village. Nice tables but the building is 70's tired. Excellent service though.

We didn't have much experience with Vail eateries so we relied on TripAdvisor to find us a good restaurant - and once again they did. The Alpine Tavern is located at the Vail Racquet Club - quite a ways from Vail Village so we chose...More
