They have a wide variety of cheese flavors and also a food counter where they can serve sandwiches, fried cheese curds, beer, wine and ice cream. The place is immaculate and the staff friendly. A GREAT visit when you are in the cities.

Cheese is not very good and overpriced. Just a store that serves some food. Not worth the trip here.

I have been to this cheese factory twice now to dine. It's a little out of the way, but worth the drive for lunch or dinner and buy some cheese curds too. Best deep fried cheese curds!

My husband and I have been here twice after canoeing on nearby lakes. It is a lovely setting with people coming from all different directions. Wonderful selection of drinks and cheeses! Menu items are unique and flavorful. Lots of outdoor seating with shade umbrellas.

marks up other places cheese, but puts their own labels on it. A cheese factory should make cheese. make cheese or change your name.

Don't know if this is a restaurant or an attraction, but I know this is a very cool place. Nothing much happening in the cheese making room when we were there, but great cheese and interesting wine served deli-style.
