Alice’s Story

Alice’s Concept

Believe it or not, there is a REAL Alice.  She purchased the site of Alice’s in 2007 and began working on creating her “dream restaurant”.  The food had to be quality – but not over the top.  The feel of the dining room had to be comfortable – but not sloppy.  And the customers – they would feel comfortable taking a seat no matter why or how they came – for a date, a special party, business meeting or family gathering after a day on the lake.  Over a decade later, Alice’s continues to operate with those ideals in mind.   Alice and her team work hard to excite the senses and engage the guests with an excellent setting, delicious food and seamless service.  While Alice doesn’t work daily at the restaurant, she works closely with Executive Chef Jeff Callahan, General Manager, Leslie Werner and the Best Bartender in the world, Al Guglielmo.  Lake Hopatcong is one of New Jersey’s few natural gems with a rich history – Alice’s is proud to be a part of a vibrant community.

Alice’s has Sisters

Alice’s is the second of five Lake Hopatcong businesses owned Alice and her husband.  Alice’s restaurant contributes soundly to their corporate mission, which reads:
Providing a spectrum of day-trip excursions for all lake enthusiasts to discover the natural beauty, historic charm and vibrant culture of Lake Hopatcong.  Our professional dedication to hospitality is matched by our commitment to aesthetically pleasing venues and community involvement –  thoughtful practices which create un-paralleled experiences in the Highlands of New Jersey.”   Alice’s is an approachable, quality-based entity with a mission of their own……
