Fodor's Review

If you're serious about sampling the local color, stop in here for a cold one. The Fischerstube, a famous local brewery, produces its own lagers and ales in the copper tanks you see at the back of the room. If you like the Ueli Bier, named for a Fasnacht jester, you can buy a keg to take home—or ask for one at your table. The look is simple, with whitewashed walls and sanded wooden tables, offering a range of tasty snacks like oven-fresh pretzels to heartier local dishes of steak or sour beef liver with Rösti, which tastes a lot better than it sounds. In summer, the small rooftop beer garden is very popular.
