Our family recently had lunch at the Frying Pan. The view is spectacular and the atmosphere is fun. But the food is just so-so. I did like the fact that it has a German menu. The Jaeger schnitzel was quite good. But the roasted chicken...More

My son & daughter-in-law took me there cause they had been and told me I would love it. They were right. So original and good place to drink relax and look out over the water.

Loved this place, visited around 4pm and managed to get a table next to the water. It was a beautiful day and we had a bucket of Corona. What’s not to like?

They most likely would. I’m 16 and they just gave me a bracelet to show I’m under 21. There were a few kids on scooters when I walked out as well.

Yes they are still open if it rains. They have an indoor area with partial outdoor space.

Entry to the ship is free... its just a matter of finding seating for those 10 people you're bringing... and depending on the day and time it's not too hard to do that. For reservations you need 25 or more.
