Had dinner at this restaurant when visiting our daughter and son-in-law in Michigan in April 2017. This place is set up to resemble an Austrian restaurant with several wood-panelled rooms catering for different sized parties of customers and whilst it was not very busy the night we went (a Tuesday during the off-season) we were shown to a room without...

Looking for a bite to eat we stepped inside. Everything was scrumptiously delicious! Not one bad thing to eat or drink. The staff was super friendly, regularly checked back on us. If... More

Holland's little secret is this quaint gem. AlpenRose has a lot of eclectic food choices, as well as stunning decor. The menu is diverse, with a German flare.

I go to Alpenrose for those special days like birthdays etc. The food is northern European and its WONDERFUL!!!! The staff are always very nice. Prices are moderate for local standards but below what you would find in Chicago or New York for the same kind of restaurant. Wine list is very broad. Don't miss the desserts.

Always a location for special occasions or dinner with friends. They celebrate the seasons but Octoberfest is their shining hour! Food is always authentic and delicious. Staff is very welcoming. Banquets or individual dinners - either way - you win when you dine there.

We had excellent appetizers, scratch made drinks(which were great), and excellent main dishes! We had crab stuffed salmon, chicken dish, and duck and everyone loved their dishes!
