This is one of our favorite restaurants in Alpine. I've tried almost everything in their menu and I can't complain. Their patty melt is my husband's favorite. They serve breakfast all day. Their lunch specials come with a free slice of pie. You've got to try their lemon cream cheese pie, it's sinful!! The service is great. Parking could be... More

Food is good. Lots of it. I think that the price is a little high, but you do get a lot of food. The service is great. A fun place to go for the atmosphere.

We had dinner here celebrating one of our granddaughter's birthday. This was our first time eating here and had picked it based on tripadvisor's reviews. We were not disappointed. My wife and I had to take have our meal home because the portions were so big.

Been coming here to the Alpine Janet's ever since it opened. Generous (very) portions, fair prices and most importantly, just good food. Friendly staff, family owned. You won't regret it... Seriously nothing bad to say, only good....

Great service, lovely quiet patio out back, breakfast is delicious and varied, fresh fruit is really fresh! Muffins are fabulous! I've had dinner here but usually go next door to the Tavern, run by the same folks.

Our kids live in Alpine, we had never been to their new place and they wanted to take us to this restaurant not far from where they live. The food is great, the service is great, the atmosphere was great, we will go back there again on our next trip to see the kids.

We love coming here and sitting outside. They have a much larger menu than their smaller Santee location with tons of selections that would have to please even the pickiest eater. Very large portions

Cute charming place like a town in Big Bear. Friendly service big portions fresh baked desserts. You could share a meal $2 split fee. You can eat inside or outside depending on weather. A little pricey but worth it.

We were visiting for the Thanksgiving holiday and my mom made reservations for a family breakfast. When we arrived the table was set and the waitress was attentive. I ordered corned beef hash with scrambled eggs, home fries and a buscuit. The servings were plentiful; I could have split a plate and been more than full. The food was prepared... More
