The Marlin specializes in seafood. The fresh seafood is presented to you so you can choose your food before it is prepared. We had fish incased in salt. Once done it was quite a show getting the fish out. It was excellent. The service was...More

This restaurant is all about quality and service. Dover sole is a must simply excellent. The service is second to none. The staff is wonderful. A great place to spend an evening. Expensive but well worth the price. A must if you are in Lucerne....More

Eating outside, overlooking Lake Lucern is a nice experience. Portions were small, but good. Wines are local - not as good as the Italian or California wines. Dessert was asparagus ice cream - different.
