I love this place. The owner, Andy, is fantastic and so is the food. I mean the food is EXCELLENT! Add in the ambiance, live entertainment, and the Warren Miller films looping perpetually. Every visit - for me - to the U.P. for skiing, will...More

We came across this place while skiing at Powderhorn, looking for a place to warm up and fill our bellies between runs. It's a ski-in tavern on top of the hill that reminded us of a 1980's ski lodge. Food's okay, service is slow, but...More

The best place to kick back and enjoy some good drinks, food and friendship after a day of skiing. Ask for Terry and have an Alpen Cherry! Or an Alpen Bloody Mary. My favorite drinks.

Subpar food. Horrible service. I had my dish served 20 min after everyone at my table had already finished eating. Avoid this place at all costs!

Terrible service, it took 2 hours for food to come out. Only 2 meals were served at a time when served. Food terrible when finally arrived. Owner only had excuses. Would not recommend & will never come back.

This is a fantastic bar tucked in the woods near Powderhorn. It really does have an alpine feel to it. Great place to go for drinks and simple bar food after being outdoors all day.

A ski in/ski out location is always an asset to a resort. The Alpen Inn has a great view from the dining room side and the bar is cozy and warm. The night we were there, a lively crowd in the bar was enjoying the...More

Went with group of couples for dinner. People liked the fish tacos. Steak was ok. Great little bar on side of ski hill to stop in on last run of day. Good hot drinks.
