Amazing german cuisine experience in Hill City! Take note, however; the german menu is only served during lunch hours. Also, be prepared for a possible waiting line. This little restaurant is very popular! But the food is absolutely amazing! The building itself is an experience as well with its decor.

This little inn never disappoints. While the wait can sometimes be out the door, it is always worth it. The bar in front while you are waiting is always fun and often has a live singer. The food is always perfection, salad, steaks and all, not to mention the hospitality is superb. The dessert menu is very fun and is... More

I am from the east coast and visit the area looking to relocate in the Dakota's In my opinion this inn has the best German food anywhere. I stayed in the Rapid area with my wife for a month and believe it or not we ate here 9 times. I might add that the deserts are to die for and... More

We were introduced to this restaurant by a local, and we were so glad! We went on a Friday night and had to wait for about 30 minutes, but it was worth it. A very limited menu with 2 filet sizes and some other German dish. Everyone in our group and at all surrounding tables had a filet, so I... More

We had a wonderful lunch at this charming establishment on the balmy Saturday after Thanksgiving. Very interesting place with different rooms for dining. The decorations for Christmas were fun! The service was good and our food was excellent.

Alpine Inn is always welcoming and cozy. Great steak cuts, wedge salad, and German cuisine. My husband and I love our,date nights in Hill City and all the beautiful lights with a small town atmosphere. This place makes a magical date night for couples ♡

This was a great dinner stop, with a fun, old fashioned atmosphere. Steak was delicious, as were the wide range of desserts. My only complaint was that it was so dark in the restaurant I could barely see my food!

Had a great lunch at the Alpine. Menu had some options that you would not normally see. Enjoyed the German style food. Restaurant is really and old home so eating place are scattered through out the building. This restaurant does not take credit cards so be prepared. Hours are rather limited also. Worth stopping for.
