Where to Eat in Collingwood

Alphorn (The)

We are a small Swiss restaurant located on highway 26 halfway between the town of Collingwood and the Blue Mountain Ski Resort and Intrawest Village.

Our specialty is Wiener schnitzel, which was named the best in Canada by Ski Canada magazine. Also very popular are our cheese and beef fondue, trout, chicken, steaks, and our traditional Swiss appetizers such as raclette, buednerfleisch, and hearts of palm salad.

The Alphorn has been at this location since the early 1980s and has become a local landmark over the years, made especially famous by our unique birthday celebrations. People of all ages beg to visit the Alphorn every year for their birthdays and for many families this has become a ski season tradition.

Our atmosphere is that of a Swiss family restaurant with our wooden tables, stucco walls, and an unbelievable collection of memorabilia, featuring autographed bibs and skis from famous racers, currency from all over the world, and other oddities like the 5 foot long watches.

Our intimate copper bar carries an extensive wine list, as well as our “Beers of the World” passport, offering 40 different types, our draft selection, and our featured “Beer of the Week”. Most importantly, we always keep a full stock of Schnapps, especially Apple Schnapps, which has been made infamous by the Apple Liquor song.

Baked and Pickled

Our Story

Following our passion for fresh, traditionally made foods we produce our products by hand using traditional methods mixed with unique flavours and ingredients.

Our Mexican

After multiple trips to Mexico, owner Paul Luckett found that the authentic, traditional flavours easily found on every corner throughout were nowhere to be found back at home. With great effort Paul sourced the spices and peppers needed to lovingly coax these flavours out of Mexico and bring them home to share with you. Please come and share our passion for the Authentic and Unique alike found in our signature products including our Carnitas Tacos made with our own fresh tortillas, Stuffed Aged Cheddar Jalapeno Baguettes and pickled peppers including Ghost peppers, Habaneros and Jalapenos.

Gustav Chophouse and Bar

The late 1800’s saw unprecedented emigration from Europe to North America.

The promise of a future and prosperity drove a young Gustav Johann Garbe to get on a boat from Bremen, Germany to New York, destined for the North-West Territories of Canada. The first in a line of entrepreneurs, Gustav was grounded in family and community.

In business, he brought supplies, telephone and power to the growing new province of Saskatchewan while providing leadership and guidance through both his local school board and town council. His children carried on that spirit, passing down through two more generations to today.

Gustav’s values, we have brought an experience that is grounded in family and community. From ours to yours, the menu has been painstakingly developed drawing from collective experiences, relying on local farmers and community for unsurpassed cuisine. Exceptional service, rooted in family atmosphere, creating a lasting imprint and lifetime memories.

We hope you enjoy your time with us.
