As always the alpenhorn was a great stop for dinner! They have a great pub atmosphere and the food is really good. The service was pretty good and the prices were reasonable. We'll be heading back again next time we're in town

I have been coming to Smithers for decades and although this restaurant may have changed hands, it has always remained a good quality bar and restaurant. This time I had to catch a flight, so I found a corner table to do some work, and enjoy their French onion soup. They have decent pub fare and prices are what you... More

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.

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.
