good for sitting out of the restaurant, in summer, in the shadow. you see the river and a part of the old town there inthere you can see the brewing tanks and it is in an old cellar from the rathaus(seat of the city-governement) good food,but rather expensive,with some swiss food, but also german food ( for example bawarian saussages, or meals with knŲdels) the lucerne-inhabitants go there if they want to eat bawarian. THEYR BEERS ARE NOT BAD BUT NOT OWERWHELMING

Great picturesque location by the water. Has a nice traditional ambience that fits in with the touristy local. There are a couple of house beers on tap along with numerous bottles to select from. The biggest drawback is it is rather pricy. The beers were fairly average, but the scenery is worth the visit.

Had 2 beers on tap when I visited, a nice pils and an ok autumn ale. Great location right on the water in a beautiful setting. Beers were 6 chf or about $6.5 for 30 cl. Not cheap. The food was $$$$$. Nice place, get ready to pay if you are eating.

I stopped in here while in Switzerland with my mom a while back. We flew into Zurich to visit some old friends and family and decided to spend a day in Luzern since we hadnít been there in well over a decade. After walking across the pedestrian bridge with all the artwork in it we walked along the water to find a cafe and just happened across this. Lucky find I guess. We sat outside on a sunny day and split some food and each had a beer, which at that particular time was only three house beers (helles, weizen, and 5 korn). They also make bierschnapps out of their own beer which I thought was a novel concept. I tried a small taster of it and it just tasted like vodka. But what do I know, I donít even like liquor. The service was surprisingly friendly, though that may have had more to do with the fact that I was with my mom. Prices were high. Iíd come back just for the scenery, even if the beers were just alright.

(Visited 11/2011): This brewpub is located right on the water along one of the inlets of Lake Luzern, offering a picturesque view of the water and bridges. The interior is comprised of several rooms, with a small bar immediately on the right and various rooms for restaurant seating throughout. There are stone walls and arched windows with wooden tables. Rathaus has just a few taps featuring their beers, including a Christmas beer and a Helles on our visit. The beers are decent. Fairly extensive bottle list as well (100+). Service on a fairly busy dinner rush was good. The server was able to work through our language barrier and was friendly. Food at Rathaus is solid, we both enjoyed our sausage dinners and got a kick out of the tubes of mustard provided with the meal. All in all this spot is a worthwhile place to visit for the scenery, food and beer.

Large pub and restaurant, type "Ratskeller". Beautiful location, old building with lots of space inside and out. Good food, decent beers. Normal prices for the area.

Well located and nice, classcic interior with the brewing equipment very prominently present. I think they only serve their house beers. We had dinner here which was ok: menu lists typical Swiss food: saucages of very kind. Not very cheap, but rather common prices for Switzerland.

Cliff  (72) The Land of Milk and Honey, Ohio | June 3, 2011
Great location right on the river before it opens into the lake, near the beautiful covered bridges of Lucern with the snow capped alps in the distance. They only had 2 beers, a hefeweizen and an unflitered helles/pilsner type lager. Both were very good, but outrageously expensive. A .5L of the hefe was almost 10 Chf. Was a cool place, but donít go expecting a deal.

Beautifully located along the river that looks over the old bridges and town. Its pleasant to sit outside if its a good day. A few house beers are served however the beers are average. Common, simple food can be ordered outside but there is a more formal restaurant inside. This place is stupidly expensive for beer and the food so dont come looking for value. Decent service but apart from the location I cant say I really like this place at all.
