I like cheese...I REALLY like cheese, so this place hits the spot perfectly, if not the arteries. Far too many cheese-tastic options... read more

I had a cheese slate, choosing from the seasonal selection and it was just fantastic! If you're a cheese fan-this is your nirvana! Great, friendly service too! I... More

Amazing if you like cheese, and I do! Terrific fondu made with all the right ingredients. Very rich and probably a million calories, but wow, what a great dish. Fabulous to share as I did.

I have never had a bad experience in this restaurant, it is one of my faves. Always clean and staff always friendly. the food is home cooked and freshly prepared and you can tell. If you haven't eaten here you must go. It is definitely one of Lincolns finest.
