Best Sauerbraten ever! Alt Beer incredible! Remarkable service! Low key but busy. Very popular with locals.

I have been disappointed with the food so much. Maybe I m not used to this kind of food but still the preparation was pretty bad. The red cabbage was completely over-cooked, potato dumplings hard as a stone, only meat was eatable. The staff was throwing glasses and plates on the table. Weird experience.

Today we had a dinner in Zum Schlussel In Old town Düsseldorf. Food was great and atmosphere like old German beer pub. Easy to reach with many pub around. Service is good , but need to check bill in the end , because to be incl. some beers more seems to be usual.

We were looking for a German Pub and walked into a genuine German Pub that brews its own signature dark beer, "Schlüssel Altbier" which is served up in 200 ml glasses without ordering it so you have to be quick to say no if you don't want it! That said if you are a beer drinker you must give it... More

Cold and always wanted to go into this place so thought that I'd start the evening with a hot chocolate. Not a problem, I thought so I ordered a hot chocolate and as an afterthought said 'with whipped cream'...well you'd think I'd sent the waitress to jump in the Rhine. She started shouting 'WE'RE A BREWERY NOT A CAFE' etc.etc.... More

Our second evening in Altstadt and we plumped for the Hausbrauerei Zum Schlussel. We were not disappointed.

Great atmosphere and a really friendly waiter made it an evening to remember. Highly recommended.

Always busy (often packed) and lively, this place serves only traditional German fare, and frankly does it well. Alt bier refreshed constantly (learn the process to stop it coming if you don't want it :) ) and great service from the multi-lingual staff.
