Food was thrown on the table. I am glutten free and they were advised and could not get one piece of bread for the cheese fondue. I got hot bonox. Meal Drink now that is a story. Asked for a bottle of house wine and was advised 15e so we siad yes. We paid by card and when we got it back it siad 55e espensive for house wine. We said no you said 15e - 6 people at out table heard this. To make it worse they charged us 55e - she made a mistake how many more people do they rip of. Wesiad get the manager and he just came out yelling and had no customer service. He then took out tour guide into the kitchen and yelled at her and she didnot even know what had happened. The entertainmant is not to bad but that is where is stops. It expensive/ overprices for what you get and you can do better else where and do not have to put up with rude people.

Many people would ignor the Stadtkeller because it is very touristy ,but we liked it for that reason. The traditional food was adequate, the beer mugs were large and the beer was tasty, the traditional entertainment was interesting and full of talent, and we had fun. We all smiled and laughed the entire time we were there. How could we have any complaints. We were tourists on our first visit to Switzerland and it was a good stop for us.

We wanted fondue but did not want to over pay. We decided to go to Stadtkeller because of the cheese fondue and traditional Swiss show. With the cheese fondue, you are given the recipe to take home. Prices were normal, considering it comes with a 2 hour show. They promote audience participation, so do not be surprised if they pull you up on stage. Get there before 7:30pm because that is when the bus tour guests arrive and the place gets packed. Something to note, it gets warm inside the restaurant.

This was my 4th or 5th time to see this show. The meal is always good and the entertainment too. I would recommend doing this while in Lucerne.

Fondue was marginal. Service was average at best. Entertainment was amusing and charming for about 30 minutes and then I grew tired of the yodeling, chugging beer on stage and then there is the cow thing. I thought this might be an interesting exploration of Swiss folk music, but after 2+ hours we walked out. Wear something cool--- it gets rather warm due to the open flame at everyone's table. I wouldn't return but for some tourists this might be just the ticket.
