Mike Abrahamsem

Amanda Dion

Fun and incredible food

john swircek

No Bud light beer, no lambrusco wine, these two drinks should be made available again !

Veronica Demutis

A lot of the waitresses here make the side salads with their bare hands, and also touch the bread that comes in the bread baskets, which obviously is very unsanitary considering that they handle money and God knows what else in between. I wouldn't put it past the cooks to be handling ready-to-eat foods with their unwashed hands as well. The owner himself is extremely nice, but his wife is one of the most disrespectful women I've ever met. I've overheard her talking poorly about her customers more often than not, which probably has a lot to do with why the previous owners(her husband's parents)dislike her so much. Along with the fact that she treats a lot of the newer waitresses there like garbage right in front of customers. The waitresses are poorly trained(even the ones that have been there for 10+ years), and obviously were never taught the appropriate way to handle food. So unsanitary. This place would be a lot more pleasant if Gretchen wasn't there with her poor attitude.

Rodney Carey

Great, people, food, and service.

Chuck Bickel

New cooks cant even cook a steak right. Red cabbage tastes like sent back twice and I wasn't trying to send it a third time... Didn't even eat the was that terrible.. female owner did not even care or try to make it right. McDonald's is better. But waitress Tracy was great....!

First time there...yummy but a bit chilly while eating. Would definitely go back!

Bill Ulma

A "one of a kind" kind of place. The schnitzel is great and the pork knuckle is equally fantastic. If open the store is worth dropping into, bring a cooler bag and some self-control!

R King

the meal I had last night (chicken marsala) was the MOST HORRENDOUS chicken I have EVER eaten. the chicken itself was like rubber and despite a delicious marsala wine sauce there was no covering the taste of that chicken. my husband and I have eaten here many times and food was always delicious, but I never had the chicken before we have only had beef or fish dishes...always excellent. I write this review for others so they don't make mistake of ordering the chicken marsala. I really feel it should be removed from the menu if this is the quality of chicken they get.

James Sekelsky

Four years in wife and I seek out this restaurant whenever in NE PA. It is a treat every time. Relax...have a beer...enjoy your food.

Johnny Finley .

This place was horrible! The food was lukewarm and had a rubbery taste and texture to it. The spetzle was still soft and sticky in the middle and when I complained to the waitress she told me that there was nothing they could do about it. Horrendous service and even more atrocious dining. There is a much better option right down the street at Der Jäeger, would highly recommend to anyone, not only looking for delictable german dishes but a place that will truly welcome you with open arms.

Drew Pan

Love this place!

john gulla

My new favorite place. Food and staff perfect.

This place has amazing food, the great atmosphere that is true to the true to authentic Germany, and an amazing staff he goes out of their way to please. They also have a smoke House & delicatessen built right into the side of the restaurant which sells imported German delicacies and meal prep items.

Bonnie was our waitress she was awesome! The food was great!

Robyn Oelke

Gretchen was the rudest person i ever met n her workers were the same i was humlitaled

Stephen Lizza

I've had the displeasure of eating at this establishment on 2 occasions and both times listened to the I guess owner as I was told he was the owner anyway he does nothing but belittle his employees. On my first occasion I figured he was having a bad day. On the second occasion he called his employees names so bad I thought the female was going to start bawling. I will never eat here again.

adam adam

Food and atmosphere was very good, waitress wasn't the best. Everything on the deli side looked very fresh and clean. I would return if I was in the area for sure.

Victoria Schlener

Wonderful atmosphere and the food was fantastic! Our waitress Bonnie was wonderful! My husband and I are happy we found the restaurant! We will absolutely be back!

Brooks Estadt

The Alpine is truly a fantastic place to eat awesome food or just hang out and enjoy the authentic German atmosphere ! It is such a unique, fun, cool place tucked into our beautiful town. The food is so good and you get a lot of it. The service is always warm, friendly and efficient. An outstanding place to bring your family or just pop by for a sandwich. All of their food is such high quality that you won't be disappointed if you love authentic German food. God Bless, Brooks Estadt

Food was ok. Service was good. They have a nice market with German type food items.

Beth Ann Zero

Great atmosphere and food! Thank goodness we made reservations. I just wish there were more vegetarian options. I made up for it with great side dish selections as small plates.

Super clean. All fresh delicious ingredients. A definite goto when you don't feel like cooking and are looking for a filling meal.

Thomas Farah

Great fresh german food

Michael Manzano

Superbly prepared traditional German dishes served in a charming old world restaurant. Bring a cooler and stop in their butcher shop for top quality meats, award winning sausages, and German,specialty foods, cheeses, breads, and desserts.

Cheryl Ann

The sausage buffet was really good! So was dessert. Service was fantastic!

I do love this place always clean and great atmosphere. I've been going for years with my wife. I love German food she is not a big fan so she always got chicken cutlet which they took off the menu no big deal burgers and steaks are great. The last 3 times i went the food went way downhill. They burnt my schnitzel, cold red cabbage,cold spatzel and served it to me anyway, forgot to send my bacon wrapped scallop appetizer and liver dumpling soup ice cold. Place was almost dead and we waited a half hour for salads. Waitress blamed it on kitchen said it was very cold that day so they were short staffed. She removed scallops from bill. I hope they get a new chef or something soon.

Authentic, on-site made, German meals. By far the best in NEPA.

Stopped in here to try their german good. Everything on the menu looked delicious. Ended up deciding on the buffet. All the sausages and prime rib were tasty. Potato salad. Soup. And more. So full after eating. But still had dessert.

Joseph Curulli

Always pleased with food and staff A place that you can always a great meal and drink Expert staff in deli area with fresh meats and sides to take home If you dine in very affordable prices

Dmitry Boykov

Smoked and cured the way my grandma served it back in the old country. Coupled with a tall cold import and I’m feeling at home. I need more!

Dan Linic

German food & waitstaff were great. Gretchen the so called "greeter" was snippy and had horrible attitude. She should be back in the kitchen and not dealing with customers

Arleen Frances

Atmosphere, food, and server all great....


Delicious meat!! Dealt with Mark Eifert and he is a super nice guy. Great place.

Wine Dine

The food is consistent here. Really authentic, love the big pretzel, always homemade and fresh. The staff is courteous and are always running around in a frenzy but it's great.

Jef Fox

There is a grocer and deli side and an enclosed restaurant off to one side. The deli has a good selection of sausages, meats, baked goods, and more. We got a bunch of hot sandwiches to go from the restaurant and I’d very highly suggest the Reuben. This is a place we’d visit again.

Gerlinde Bush

I can go crazy in that store and buy everything.

Yolanda Salaris

Nice place but overpriced


sue cristiano

Best german food anywhere!

Michael Dorzbacher

Best German food i have had in a long time


You get to feel German for the day. Great selection of German beers and authentic food. They even have regular meats for those that don't eat German food. After you eat, you can shop for the food you just ate and bring home.

A journey to Bavaria right in Honesdale. Dining at this restaurant is a wonderful experience from the moment you walk into the nicely decorated dining room. Walls adorned with cuckoo clocks and more unique memorabilia. The aroma detected is a hint of wonderful flavors to soon be delivered to your table. The servers are adorned with authentic apparel that really complete your trip to Bavaria. When the apps are delivered the feast begins! Bacon wrapped Sea Scallops, Gebackener (baked Brie w/ cranberry apple chutney), Raucher Forelle (Smoked Trout Filet), and more. Delivery of the entrees... deliciousness continues... Wiener Schnitzel, Jaeger Schnitzel, Zwiebelrostbraten, Slow Roasted Smoked Prime Rib, Delmonico Steak, and a Cheeseburger for our grandson. The dessert tray from the Black Forest: Apple Streudel, Bienenstich, Chocolate Lovers, and the Prinzregententorte! What a tasty finish to a great meal!!! Bavaria is calling you, will you answer?

Delicious German and European meat market. I will have to try the restaurant next time.

Wulv Darkclaw

My wife & I recently went there for Lunch. I was not disappointed, great beer selection, great food & good service with a smile! Atmosphere was nice & the deli next to it is a must!!! We got full in the dinner part & loaded up on supplies to make our own at home!!! We will be going back many, many times to come!!!

Neil Fitzgerld

Service poor soda tasted bad got a lot of grief for asking them to take it back won't go there again

Regine Lombardo

We came here late on Sunday afternoon around 4:30pm. Closing time is 5 pm on Sundays. We did not know that. Our waitress Bonnie was very polite. We were not rushed. Food was great. Other guests arrived even later than us. There was no sign of hurrying customers.

Food is delicious. Dessert was outstanding. Beehivecake yum

Christopher Biehl

This place is amazing, I would eat here every day if I could. Not a large beer selection but everything is quality. The appetizers are amazing, straight baller. The Bavarian pretzel is the size of someone's torso. The main courses are authentic, delicious and absolutely wonderful Bavarian eats. My personal favorite is the Schnitzel ala holstein. An absolutely beautiful and tasty dish. I've tried other things and they are all too quality but the schnitzel ala holstein takes the cake on deliciousness. So long story short, if you only have one meal in Honesdale, make it the Alpine.

Ronald Roth, Jr

Excellent food! Try the double smoked chorizo as well as the garlic liverwurst! The staff could be a bit friendlier, but other than that our experience was great!

Jonathan Chang

Outstanding. Sausages, grilled. Sauerkraut, potato pancakes, apple sauce. Large steins of beer. Plenty of leiderhose. Happy faces and a full belly.

M Boyle

Going on the third year that 14 buddies and I go there for a golf weekend. Steaks are preseasoned and fabulous. Incredible selection in the supermarket section for a complete and awesome meal.

Lee S Jones

One of the best steaks in the deli - delmonico. Restaurant delicious too.

Evan Hill

Richard Vittone

Daniel Ziv

Best place in the whole world!!!! Service is impeccable! I wish I could share the rice pudding with every person I've ever loved, I cried the first time I tasted it. THE KING LUDWIG STEAK IS SOMETHING SACRED!!! Although one of their delmonicos are a bit more practical and pack just as much flavor. So many delicious imports and incredible sausages. Bring an appetite and leave n cloud 9!

My family always visits this place whenever we are in the area visiting with grandma. My daughter cannot leave without visiting the deli and getting her leberkaese! Authentic service. Simply delicious! See you again soon.

Bruce Fisher

Red Alert. Have been going to this German restaurant for 16 years. They appear to be going out of business based upon the horrible service we experienced this evening. Took over 1 hour for our meals to be served. Staff seems very frustrated. Blames the problem on limited staff in the kitchen. Their problem became ours. Won't be returning anytime soon.

Barbara Thornton

Always good

Richard Earing

Great restaurant.

Matthew Pedersen

Great food, excellent service. Looking forward to going back !!!

Stefanie H.

The first time my family and I went it was good. Our second a month later we were seated and ignored for over 30 minutes. Waitresses would walk by looking right at us and keep going. I complained and we got service. We should have just walked out! And they're expensive!

Walter Galuska

Great Rueben, good service. We will be back.

Sofia Constantinou

Everything in this place is delicious. And the people are so nice.

al suarez

Good food and service

Alexis Duda

I worked here for a short 2 weekends and lemme tell you it’s the worse. Some of the waitresses eat food off of plates before giving it to customers, the bread in the bread baskets that people don’t eat are used again in the next bread basket for the next customer. The guy manager is so nice, but the woman (Gretchen) is extremely rude. She talks badly about customers and is always rude to the employees. This place is horrible. Also Gretchen loves to gossip about workers, as she did about me. Horrible restaurant.

Nicole Gugliucci

Delicious and great atmosphere!

Edward Pfuhler

Great butcher shop and restaurant. Best potato pancakes ever.

Ashley Porto

Gave two stars and not one cause the food was decent. We were the only table beside 2 others and the service took forever. For a small beer mug was like over $10 that's insane and the burger was expensive too. The worst for me was the music was way-way to loud. The music drove me insane smh.

Yvonne LaMarca

Love it here..I've been to Germany and my mom's from Germany..The smell of the place reminds me of Omas..The store and the restaurant make me feel like I'm there

Chad Clark

Great food, great service

Michael Loesch

We buy from the German deli at least every other week to grill. The restaurant setting is great.

Byron Raco

Great atmosphere, great authentic alpine food, great service at great prices. Feels like home cooking and is consistently tasty across the menu. After you have a wonderful, filling meal go to the market and buy some of their high quality meat. The beef jerky is the best and smoked scallops are a rare treat.

michael jones

The best place for meat, and your favorite German Food

Shane McConnell

Excellent German food

Robert Mitchum

I've been here several times and everything has always been A OK Good food, nice atmosphere, and the staff has always been friendly and more than helpful. My one and only regret, is that I wish they had more of a selection on the menu.

If you are looking for meats and sausages then look no further! A nice selection of top quality products including a selection of Wursts that is unmatched. They also have a smaller selection of breads, pastries and some other goodies like condiments you won't find anywhere else. For me it's a 45 minute drive but I wouldn't get my sausages anywhere else.

Max Wiley

Consistently great food. Suitable for children, parking, accessibility and atmosphere. Deli counter is reasonably priced and usually quick. The mulled wife is perfect on a cold day. The schnitzel is proper. The beer is cold. Definitely a must see and taste if you're in the area.

A Google User

The best corned beef or pastrami Reuben ever. Speaking as a vegetarian

Christopher's Stunts

Excellent as always!

Kurt Eschbach

As someone who enjoys celebrating my Germanic heritage through food, I always look forward to a trip to the Alpine. The atmosphere is comfortable and very clean. The decor is traditional and just what you would expect in a German restaurant. The food is good. I have had some wonderful dinners and some that disappoint (an overcooked schitzel and some dry pork - just a few minutes too long in the oven I guess). The wurst shop is nice, but the prices are very much NYC and not small town PA, but that is the price you pay for quality.
