Haven't tried them all, but this one is very good! Their specialty is the bratwurst, that comes wrapped in a paper with bread and mustard sauce. It is located nearly in front of Zürichsee, or Lake Zurich. The staff is really friendly and the food good, of course it is a snack, but something you have to try once in... More

Good, simple, traditional food. Sausages are delicious! Friendly and prompt service. Good view from the 2nd floor.

We were walking through Zurich on a partly sunny day when we passed Sternen Grill. I noticed a few people were sitting out on their second floor balcony, which was bathed in sunlight. I knew I had to go there and enjoy this rare sunny fall day. It did not disappoint, I enjoyed the unobstructed sun and people-watching in the... More

You can't go wrong here. Sausages, frites, and beer. Fast, inexpensive, and absolutely delicious. The line moves quickly. You can sit in the alley outside the stand, or you can take your food down to the lake. Either way, you'll be very happy.

Husband and I ate here - we sat in one of the little tables inside and ate away. I am embarrassed to say we damn near tried it all. From the sausages and chicken and potato salads for my hubby and he loved it and I had bits an pieces plus I had a delicious curry chicken pita with tomatoes.... More

Cheap, fast and near the lake. You can eat a typical St. Galler sausage for 7,5 CHF with bread and have a nice meal near the lake. I recommend buying the beverage in Migros, the supermarket right next to the restaurant.

The Sternen Grill provides one of the iconic taste of Switzerland. The St. Gallen bratwurst is absolutely and paring this with the hard roll, pomme frites and a tap beer can not be beat. You will see bankers and painters sitting or standing side by sides. Wonderful start to any Zurich visit.

Its St Gallen Bratwurst is still the best. It came with a local crusty bread roll for $7.50CHF. We found it easier to cut the roll into half and sandwich the sausage. The lake is within walking distance, so you can eat this inside or take it down the lake and have it with a view. The sausage was so... More

So this is a Swiss "hot dog" cafe across the street from the Lake. Folks line up to buy grilled Bratwurst, Curry Wurst, Cervalate with a large, crusty roll and very strong mustard. The wurst is held in one hand, not cushioned within the roll. You dip your sausage in the mustard and take a bite then have a piece... More

Great sausages!!! We loved the veal sausage (forget the name but it was the highest priced one of the three on the menu). It came with two long skinny sausages and a roll. Tasted very homemade and also great spices.
