A simple restaurant, but the food is good and service to match. Recommended for lunch or dinner. I've been a number of times and will go back again.

Met expectations for better than average bar food. It has a nice feel for a North woods kind of bar. I felt like they worked hard to keep it clean and friendly

I was there for dinner new years eve. I was very disappointed with the service and my meal. The waitress knew nothing about specials or the beer. The scallops tasted off to me so I gave them to my husband. The baked potatoe was very small and no sour cream was served with it. The waitress never asked if we... More

The food was great and the staff was very friendly. I visited twice while vacationing in the area and it was pretty full each time which is always a good sign. People go where the good food is and not being a local you follow the crowds because they will lead you to the good food. Learned this from years... More

Stopped in for pizza and a drink with the family. Enjoyed the Meaty pizza. It was very good. I highly recommend the pizza here. It is mostly a build your own pizza type of place. There are not may pizza's listed on the meny. However, they have just about anything you would want on the pizza. This is a sports... More

We ate here several times. Nothing fancy here but has Interesting sports decor. We especially liked their fish sandwich and their pizza. A strange thing here though is fries do not come with the meal-they are extra! They were good though. A salad was served with old lettuce starting to brown and lots of stem pieces. We told our server... More

The wife and I stopped here at Alpine Tavern (Gaylord) in October 2016 on our way to our up north honeymoon. The building looks cool from the outside and inside is nice…especially if you’re into sports. Lots of TVs and sports memorabilia. We were there around 1pm and it wasn’t too busy. Service was kind of slow, but friendly. The... More

My family of four (couple + 2 kids under 4) stopped here on our way out of town from Boyne Mountain. We were drawn to the menu options that we saw online. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The restaurant itself wasn't very clean and felt like a place where you'd rather not touch anything (which makes it a... More
