Not too bad

Stopped in for a couple of beers and some burgers. The burgers weren't the best or the worst I've had. The buns they come in though are excellent. The waitress was brusque and they seemed understaffed. Otherwise good.

Great place for lunch! Good burgers and fries! Affordable and reasonable prices. Hot dogs will run about 9 chf and a side of fries will be about 4 chf. Burgers and salads will be about close to 17 chf but burgers come with a salad or fries so it's a good amount of food. They also have wings and nachos.... More

The crowds were chanting and cheering during the rugby match, which made for such a fun atmosphere. After the game, our group sat down and enjoyed a few burgers and beers. All the food was very good and the prices were pretty good considering it's Zermatt. My burger was delicious, and juicy - and the fries were crispy. The service... More

The location of the pub makes it perfect to drop in for a drink whilst wandering around the center of Zermatt. Good ambience and friendly staff. Extremely lively and noisy on a Saturday evening in the ski season.

Doesn't take itself to seriously, looking for a relaxed pub style atmosphere with decent, american food with some European splashes. Really good, not fancy, but very tasty!

Staff lovely, very helpful. Food no great shakes though, I'm afraid to say. Atmospheric and good outside seating area but in terms of food, I would say it was overpriced and not up to standard.

My wife and I went to this place upon our arrival in Zermatt, and we had a great meal. Location: location wise, this is hard to beat. Located right on the main street, Bahnhofstrasse, I believe, this place is very easy to find, and for any occasions. Quality: my wife selected the burger and me, the gulasch soup, an Hungarian...

I went to the pub last week to have a burger and some beers, i couldn't believe my eyes when the burger arrived, i had been to this pub in previous years and thought i knew what to expect, the place is a simple cozy pub and the burgers used to be served on simple round plates, now they're served...

This establishment it very busy for good reason - superb burgers at reasonable prices. It does get very busy so you must pick your time carefully or be ready to wait. Staff are pleasant too
