The restaurant offers two levels for dining in an airy, light space as well as a deck overlooking Main Street. If you can, save room for dessert. The brownie sundae is amazing and a great treat after a satisfying meal.
This established, family-run restaurant is the place to go for fine dining in an upscale, yet hip, setting. The 22-year-old business has recently joined forces with Alpine Distilling to provide a new twist on your dining experience. Notice the tin-pressed ceiling in the historic building that once housed a department store as you take a front-row seat to the action on Main Street. Start with a signature cocktail or a bottle from the Wine Spectator-awarded list. A diverse menu of traditionally prepared, classic and playful cuisine is now crafted for family dining and sharing plates. Menu items reflect the flavors of alpine regions such as garden, valley and fjord. The Utah red trout entrée is a local favorite, but there is something for everyone on the menu, including gluten-free options. For a truly unique experience, book a tasting in the Alpine Distilling tasting room where you can custom craft your own signature gin to enjoy with your meal.

The restaurant specializes in making sure those who skip gluten don’t feel left out and offers many innovative options. The owners aim to create a restaurant and lounge dedicated to making people happy, and they have done that by providing fresh, local and all-natural dishes using ingredients from nearby farms practicing sustainable agriculture. They also use 100 percent grass-fed beef. The handcrafted cocktails won’t disappoint you, either. Enjoy them in the two upper dining floors or in the lively lounge downstairs, where there are DJs every Saturday night. Chef Scott Boberek aims for simple but masterfully prepared meals.
