Kaiserbründl, run by the Gredler family, is a good standby for a broad range of local and international dishes and a lively crowd. The restaurant sits centrally at street level in the Marktplatz. Around 6pm, skiers start to trickle in for a bite to eat after an hour or two of après ski cocktails. During our visit, a group of locals and a few Americans hovered around the bar getting refills of Kaiser beer while "Pretty Woman" and other oldies played in the background. In the summertime, guests can dine on a patio outdoors.

Two beers appeared on the table almost immediately after we took our seats and began to browse a menu that started with salads, soups, and appetizers which range in price from 40 to 105 AS ($3.15-$8.26). Grilled entrées, including venison, range from 110-190 AS ($8.66-$15). Some Italian and even Indian dishes are also featured.

We ordered hearty meat dishes. First, a gratinéed fillet of pork with a heavy sauce, served with broccoli and potato croquettes (deep fried potatoes loaded with butter) and artistically garnished with slices of peach and pear. Then, a skillet of pan-fried beef tips with mushrooms and sweet peppers served in a creamy, stroganoff-like sauce. The portions were extra large and the food was rich in butter and cream, so needless to say we filled up well before our plates were clean.
