Was there for dinner, we had been here for breakfast a long time ago. Should have left it at that. Dinner is not their forte. The two people working were helpful, but overwhelmed. They tried, they really did. But then the manager/cook showed up, and...More

There is not much to choose from in Alpine. This look like a really cool little restaurant with an entire silver metal exterior. The service was good, but did scare us at lunchtime that we were the only people in the place. Nothing to rave...More
