Still not my favorite Altstadt Brew, but I do have a little passion for visiting this place on every visit to D'dorf. This was one of my first experiences in Altstadt and it has always been kind to me.

Now I will agree with the other reviewer, the waiters do have some attitude. In fact they can be quite rude, but once the beers start flowing you can have a good time. I do recommend standing outside or atleast grabbing a spot up front. People watching is a sport in Altstadt and this is in the heart of it.

Very traditional food, and a pretty decent Alt. I usually end up only having one or two when I visit now, but I do always make it a regular visit when in town.

On a street full of bars, Schlüssel is the only one with a brewery, in gleaming copper down at the back. It's one of the more open-plan Düsseldorf beerhalls, with just a couple of smaller rooms, including smoking space, off the main one. The atmosphere suffers a bit from this cavernousness and the bright lighting.

Original Schlüssel is all that's on offer -- from the wooden cask, of course -- and it's pretty good. Service was typically brisk, but I was blessed by it being a quiet afternoon and I had all the waiterly attention I needed.

It's no Uerige, but Schlüssel is a perfectly pleasant place to spend an hour.

OK, full disclosure-before getting into the review, I'll say upfront that I got into three arguments with the prick that was our waiter. (My score reflects my overall experience.)

We walked in (it was WAY too cold to sit outside) and found that about 2/3 of the place was reserved for a party. After a while, we found a free table, sat down and ordered drinks. The problems started right away... the waiter coped an attitude. OK, I let it go.

We tried to order something to eat and Mr. Pissy got snippy so I told him never mind. After three arguments with the waiter trying to get the bill, I had to figure out how much we owed, get it together and throw it on a table in front of the guy.

Beer prices were about on par with those in the rest of Dusseldorf. The place is pretty modern and clean. Food prices were a tad higher. There wasn't an extra charge for the drama.
