This place is known for this restaurant, but the bar is nice as well. Very welcoming and nice home bear as well. It is a pity it has very limited outside sitting place, but this seems to be a general problem in Lucerne

It was a great evening with good food and lots of fun. We had the "fondue bourguignone" that was very good. Excellent meat, very good fries and good sauces. Entertainment was also great.A wonderful experience.

After multiple visits to Switzerland, it occurred to me that I had never seen someone play an Alpenhorn or heard someone yodel. Tonight, those two items and many more were checked off my bucket list! Fabulous food and talented entertainers who encouraged the very lively crowd to join in the fun made this a night to remember. Speaking of remembering...... More

One of the most entertaining and fun evenings on our tour. The menu consisted of Cheese Fondu, Fresh Salad, Strips of Veal in mushroom cream sauce, Potato Rosti and Meringue with applesauce and strawberry ice cream. The food was great and the entertainment a lot of fun. They got the audience involved from the start, singing and playing different songs... More

The meal was very well prepared and served. The evening entertainment showed everything the Swiss advertise, yodelling, singing, dancing, Alphorns, local dress and it was enjoyably presented for the full evening.

We dined here as a group, it was a really fun evening with fantastic entertainment. Audience participation was encouraged and a few of our group tried the yodelling and horn blowing! Nice food and good service even though it was very crowded. Definitely a must to experience the traditional Swiss experience.

My family and I recently dined at the Stadtkeller for a Saturday lunch show. The food (I had the cheese / beef / chocolate fondue) was excellent, and the children's menu was a hit with my hard-to-please children. While it might be considered a "touristy site," it was exactly what we were looking for -- something my kids would never... More

My family is originally from this part of Europe (more specifically Germany) but this totally captured the feeling and atmosphere of an old German beerhall. The entertainment was excellent, especially the Swiss Alpine Horn contest. My wife and I loved the evening and, incidentally, the food was also amazing. This is a must stop for anyone visiting Lucerne.

Traditional Swiss folklore evening, exactly what it says on the label, a fun evening, food better than expected with some clever entertainment. Guests are encouraged and welcomed to participate. we did it as a group excursion as do it seemed most others. I thought it worth the money, something a bit different.
