If you crave cheese, Wisconsin cheese is the best. Such a great variety, many to taste and then there is the sausage counter. Great souvenirs as well. Seemed like over 20 different selections of cheese curds. Just go!

The "free samples" has families coming in droves. Crowded pushing people loading up on the free food is not my idea of a good time. They had some excellent $20/lb 18 year old cheddar but you had to hunt for it and there was no...More

Stopped here along the highway and loved the choices of cheeses and beers and Wisconsin products. Would have bought tons of stuff if I could have brought it on the plane.

This is one of our favorite stops travelling from Michigan to Wisconsin. There isn't any "cheese or wine" you can't find here. Sit in the bar while you enjoy the best grilled cheese you'll ever want, sipping a glass of your favorite beverage! The barmaid...More

Used to stop here for cheese once in awhile when traveling back home from Milwaukee. Haven't stopped in quite sometime after we found a Woodman's Grocery down the road that has a huge selection for reasonable prices.
