Typical pub atmosphere. A bit noisy but the food is reliably good and the service is excellent. We had a large group of people and everyone got their meal at the same time.

We visited Smithers for a few days. We were able to find one restaurant with both good food and service. Unfortunately this was not that restaurant. We had 6 different dishes at our table and not one of them met the mark. Combined with slow service and errors on our order, we give this restaurant a thumbs down.

The Alpenhorn used to be a great spot.....I ordered the "Smoked Beef Brisket" and I can tell you the meat was neither "smoked" nor "brisket". It was cold and flavorless. I have been away from Smithers for awhile, and this was a hug disappointment as this used to be a great spot. After eating here on my first day back,... More

Restaurant was centrally located. Easily accessible from our hotel. Decorated and inkeeping with the local area. We sat on the patio in the back which was very comfortable. The food was very well prepared and very tasty.

The food is excellent, the prices reasonable, a wide variety of beers and hard liquors to choose from. If I had a negative comment, it would be this; the music is often too loud.

Been here a few times in the last couple of months... food is OK, nothing really special. Reasonably priced for what it is.

Relaxed, pub atmosphere with space available for people with kids too. Good place for lunch. Outside patio space is great.

Had supper there with some work friends. The food was good, the service was good. The place has a nice 'homey' atmosphere. My negatives for this were very minor. The tables were a bit cramped 3 of us had to juggle for space.and the chairs were uncomfortable. All the same, I'll go there again next time I am in Smithers.

Too long service times, 45 minutes to wait for steak and chips which also came almost cold. No good !
