    The Staff was amazing both times we went. Dinner on Friday March 22nd. I am allergic to pepper and egg. The server and chef went out of their way to ensure neither were in my food. Everything is made in house. The food was so delicious and we went back for breakfast on Sunday March 24th. Again, everything was perfect. Thank you.

    We love this German and Swiss cuisines. We had the wiener schnitzels, Hunter Platter for Two, Chicken St Moritz, Seared Pickerel Filet, etc.. and of course the good beer. Wanda is lovely and friendly, she is one of the best server I have ever met. Very reasonable prices for such amazing food. Alphorn should receive 6 stars !!! We will come back for sure !!

    Great service and a fun atmosphere. Cheese fondue delicious. Disappointing meat fondue- tiny pieces, small # pieces for 4 people even though we ordered the largest size. Only 3 sauces vs a bigger selection the last time we were there. Sauces were bland and watery. But still loves the experience!

    Jordan is delightful. My chicken schnitzel was very dry, tasteless and lacked any moisture. Placing the schnitzel on top of the rosti potatoes is the epitome of laziness and made the rosti taste stringy.get larger plates!! Hearts of palm salad was so so and romaine lettuce is outdated. Cheesecake and bread were lovely. $38 for schnitzel is a joke particularly when it tasted awful. Obviously the chef cooks these in advance and then they dry out. Shame!! Very expensive meal for awful food. W

    The food was good, both my partner and I thought that the schnitzel could use some kind of sauce, it was a little dry on its own. Our server wasn’t particularly enthusiastic, but maybe she was having an off day.

    Unfortunately this restaurant has changed. My schnitzel was mostly bread crumbs with a very very thin layer of meat and the spaetzle was not warm and was crispy.

    Fantastic atmosphere...could be dining in Seitzerland. Great service; thoughtfulness in providing a substantial amount of wholewheat bread . Value is somewhat lofty essentially for a basket of bread and melted cheese ( had thw fondue). But, overall, the amazing Swiss ambiance has won me over and will return.

    Great venue for larger groups. We had 7 people. They were crazy busy, but the servers were patient, polite and very pleasant. Food portions were large, and everyone in our group loved their meal. We had schnitzel, chicken, fondue, and the hunters sharing plate for two. Great value. Fondue very tasty, their own recipe, that has a nice sherry note to the cheese. Steak in the hunters plate was cooked perfectly. Schnitzel with the hunter side was delicious as well. Will be back!

    Just a reminder to be cautious pulling in to the Alphorn off the highway, pickups going at fast speeds behind you! I really liked the old style Bavarian charm and lots of things to look at related to that theme. Service was amazing and very timely.The beef stroganoff was delicious, highly recommend! The schnitzel I found to be a little thicker than I’d like but good. The rosti potatoes on the other hand were very disappointing,small portion of over the top crispy,really hard potatoes. They weren’t undercooked just break your teeth hard on top like they weren’t fresh and heated up under a grill? They would have been really nice cooked fresh. Very nice to have an alpine theme eatery so close to Blue!

    A lovely Swiss restaurant, excellent service and delicious food! The decor is unique and inviting. Great for a winter lunch with the snow outside; makes you feel as though you are somewhere in the Swiss alps after a lovely morning ski excursion.
