Hof Restaurant & Lounge at Alpine Resort
The setting for the dining room for The Hof is wonderful, right on the waters of Green Bay and Egg Harbor - get a table near the windows and enjoy a truly wonderful panoramic view. It is fabulous!
We spent some time in The Hof lounge speaking with one of the bartenders. He was a delight to chat with and has lots of interesting stories. The Hof is a German-influenced dining experience, so sit back and enjoy!
DoorCountyNavigator.com has dined here often, so read on!
The restaurant is housed in the Alpine Resort, a true resort from the past that gives you a warm, comfortable feeling like you were present when it was brand new. It really is quite a feeling, like you have stepped back to simpler times. This is an enjoyable "gathering place" with no glitz, and all people. They have an excellent chef with a great background and deep experience.
The dining room is smoke-free, and music fills the air many nights from July through Labor Day! Dinner is served nightly through Labor Day, then weekends – so always check to make sure.
So, whether you are staying at one of the resort's 52 rooms in the main building, or one of the 30+ cottages or dozen houses or golf chalets, you will enjoy taking a step into simpler times. Wherever you are staying, take some to dine at the Hof!
We have ordered quite a few things from the menu, and have enjoyed them all. From the Sauerbraten (awesome!), Wiener Schnitzel, to the Whitefish (very popular!) or Atlantic Salmon, salads, sandwiches, small plates (for kids or adults) and more. This, or course, is a family-friendly place.
A wide selection of dining options is available.
