  • I did not eat here, but bought some of their cheese. They had samples at the front to try before making a decision. The swiss they have is awesome! The best I've had. Definitely will stop in the next ...  more »

  • I've been going here for over two decades whenever I'm visiting/in-town. My family has been going here for the past 5 generations!!! Cant recommend it enough! It's great being able to order cheese and have it delivered even if I'm out of state. The history, the memories, and the great food keeps me coming back. If you haven't tries the ribs on Wednesday, you are missing out! And as a kid, I used to have the brick cheese sandwiches. Everything is good!
  • Everyone is so friendly here! Great relaxed atmosphere from the bar/restaurant to the cheese store. Bathrooms are clean and renovated. Interesting murals painted on walls and funny bar signs. While menu was lacking variety, mostly sandwiches, brat or chili, everything was delicious and reasonable prices. Good local craft beer selection. Huge cheese selection in the cheese store again with reasonable prices. And they will give samples or cut cheese to your requested size of a half pound or more.
  • Baumgartner's...what a cool, historic tavern with a tradition of serving the popular Limburger sandwich... a simple pumpernickel and limburg sandwich (I highly recommend adding the onion). Don't smell the cheese! I really enjoyed the smoked ham with melted brick on rye. A great selection of area beer and definitely a must during the biannual Cheese Days, usually held in September. Where, according to our excellent waiter, Jason, "Our town of ten thousand becomes a hundred thousand!"
  • Very good food. Great selection of beer. Very friendly staff. Great atmosphere. Very historical place. A great place to to come and be with friends.
  • After years of living here I just don't know why I haven't gone here more. The sandwiches are basic choices, made quickly and amazing flavor. Overall it was a great experience.
