Great place for a meal and beer in Zurich. Small but excellent selection of beers on tap as well as by the bottle. We had the dark and the anniversary, both in tap and both very good. Extensive food selection. The pumpkin soup, cream of tomatoe soup and pork ribs were all very tasty. The portions are large, so consider sharing. The place is big inside but was packed for lunch at a bit after 1 pm on a Wedesday. Very nicely decorated in a medevil beerhall theme. Look out for the live grenades when you enter though... :-) Prices were normal for Zurich.

(Visited 11/2011): Zeughauskeller is located just a short walk north of Poststrasse on Bahnhofstrasse.

The interior boasts quite an armory with artillery, crossbows and other weapons displayed. Large windows looking outside. Lots of wood including ornate ceilings, chandeliers and tables.

Zeughauskeller's beer selection includes 6 drafts and around 15 bottles. The beers are pretty much all from the region, including Ittinger, Locher, Turbinen, Falken and Feldschlösschen.

The service during our dinner visit was amazing. Our waiter was very friendly and effortlessly switched to English to accommodate us tourists. He made good food recommendations and knew a lot about their beer

Food was also great at this restaurant. We ended up each getting a sausage plate and they were both great.

Overall I would highly recommend this spot to take in the local culture and try some good local beers.

Visited this place last weekend on my trip to Zurich.

First off, this place is a must, especially on a nice day where you can sit outside. Unfortunately it was raining so we were seated inside.

The Zeughauskeller is a very large beer hall style restaurant/biergarten where there are plenty of tourists and locals eating and drinking throughout all hours of the day.

The beer selection was not exactly a beer connoisseurs dream but it was very nice and had what you would expect from such a place. Draft beers come in .3l, .4l and 1l sizes ranging from about 5CHF to 14CHF.. pretty reasonable considering switzerland, but still very expensive when you consider its 6Euros for a liter of top notch german lager just a few hours north. Food was good, portions are large. Our bill came for about 100CHF and it included 1L of the lager, .3l of an amber beer, and a .5l bottle of Schneider Weiss which by the way gets properly poured for you table side... nice touch, and the pork knee which wasn't prepared traditionally but still tasty and an augustiner sausage, both came with a side of potato salad.

overall, this place is a must if you are in Zurich and want to take a load off to recharge with some food and good beer. Don't expect anything crazy on the beer list, but its a great place to get some nice german bottled beers (schneider, hofbrau and maybe schlenkerla?) and draft beers (7 to choose from with swiss locals tied in there.

For our first night's dinner in Zurich, we decided to go to the Zeughauskeller. This is a typical Swiss beer hall, that focuses more on food than beer. It's located right off the main shopping street in the new part of town. It's an old armory, so there are historical weapons everywhere. We didn't have a reservation on a Friday night, so we had to sit a community table. We actually ended up eating dinner with a really cool group of students from the local tech university up the hill. Service wasn't too friendly but it was quick, since they had to turn the table over by 8:15 pm. Not a huge beer selection, but some interesting choices. My wife had a local Swiss dark beer, and I got a mug of the house "anniversary" beer. We both enjoyed the good beer and the great sausage that we ordered. On the menu, check out the "Mayor's Sword". It's a real sword brought to the table wrapped in cooked pork. I am glad one of our new friends ordered it. Probably my favorite spot in Zurich for a food & a beer.
