I have been going to this place for many years and it has great traditional local music. The beer is first rate as well and the food is surprisingly good. Definitely well worth a visit.

We got the wrong food, the music they were playing was pretty depressing. I ordered the fondue, which was quite disappointing. The cheese was very thin, and the portion was tiny.

This place has very frequent live music and the atmosphere is generally very relaxed and happy. However, if you are looking for a young crowd this is not the place. But don't be fooled, the elderly who come here are ready to hop on the floor and shake their booties! Service wise it's very "on point", but make sure to... More

I don't usually write reviews here, but when I do it is (also) to prevent other people making the same mistake that I made. First of all, if you don't speak German don't bother going there: my girlfriend and I went there, and the first waiter that served us, incapable of speaking English, ignored us until another waiter was "forced"...

Had a great experience tonight at Bierhalle Wolf. Sat outside but didn't miss out on the great live music. Had dinner and a drink, the food was amazing. Not to mention all the staff were incredibly friendly & welcoming!

Our tour guide Marcello recommended this location after our tour. We stopped in with him and a few others for a beer and live music but ended up eating there as well. The server was busy but pleasant. The atmosphere was upbeat and fun. The band was good and we thoroughly enjoyed the music. A few patrons were even dancing... More

We went on a Saturday evening to have cheese fondue for dinner. It was delicious! As "rookie" Americans, we did not know that you only get pieces of bread to dip in your fondue, so don't ask for anything else! We ate at a table outside on the sidewalk to enjoy the fresh air and people watching. BUT the real... More

We liked their Swiss pasta speciality and the service was good. But the highlight was its atmosphere: a good band played local and international songs and the people were dancing in a very warm and entertaining environment.
