Food flavor and portions were good. The presentation of food great. The whole place needed cleaning. Seats and tables are more or less wore out. Restaurant is not air conditioned. They do have some evaporative coolers but it is humid inside.

Cant believe that this isn't the #1 restaurant in Alpine. The food is extremely good. The staff is very accommodating and they explain the recipes! Had the Saturday special and the seasoning was wonderful. Definitely worth it.

Slow as molasses in Antarctica. Seriously. It can take up to 30 minutes to get your order taken, another hour (minimum) for your food to arrive. It is ALWAYS delicious - it's just not for anyone who has something else to do that evening. Highly...More
