The Brass Lantern is a local restaurant in Megaton, run by the Stahl family in 2277.


A less rough alternative to Moriarty's Saloon, The Brass Lantern serves food and drink at respectable prices to anyone who comes. It is a family business: Jenny Stahl and Leo Stahl take care of the customers, while Andy Stahl handles management duties. Leo is the oldest one of them and took care of his younger siblings in their younger years.


The restaurant is divided into an outdoor eating area, an indoor eating area, a storage and preparation room, an owner's office, and living quarters for the Stahl family.

Eating area

There is a refrigerator in the outside eating area with an average lock. In the indoor eating area, there is a cash register with a hard lock. Past the cash register, in the storage and preparation room, there is another refrigerator identified as the Brass Lantern Cooler that can only be opened with a key.

Owner's office

In the owner's office, there is a floor safe with a very hard lock and the Brass Lantern terminal with a very easy lock. The crumbled note is jammed in a corner of this room, behind a chair.

Living quarters

Living quarters for the family are separated from the rest of the establishment by a shack door. While Jenny sleeps on the downstairs bed, the brothers sleep upstairs in two separate beds.

Notable loot

  • Crumpled note
  • If you don't mind suffering from a small Karma loss (10 karma), there's a very easy terminal in the back belonging to Andy Stahl that has notes on it about the store having chems missing from its inventory, as well as the option to open a floor safe. The floor safe, which is to be found next to the terminal, contains 300 caps.

Behind the scenes

  • The Chinese neon sign reads "明家快", (Míngjiā Kuài); the fourth character "餐" (cān) is missing. Míngjiā is a sinification of "Megaton" that literally means "house of brilliance", and the sign means "Megaton Fast Food".


The Brass Lantern appears only in Fallout 3.
