So much more than a restaurant

Grandpas is a must see if your even a little close. Amazing samples of cheese, jams, salsa, meats...you name it! Ice cream, home baked desserts and baked goods and a great place for fun and unique gifts! Staff is exceptionally helpful friendly and warm. And Grandpa is the BEST! Just love him... read more

We love to go to Grandpa's! The staff is friendly and informative. Admittedly, not all the cheeses are to my taste, but a family favorite is the Canadian Cheddar. There are also dips, and canned goods, like pickles and relishes, etc. Samples are available for many of the products they offer. Of course you can't get away without heading to... More

After 20 years of driving past the exit to Grandpa's Cheese Barn, we finally stopped. All I can say, is that it's a fun place! Plenty of cheese samples, jam, syrup and dressings. We walked away with too much cheese. Good thing it freezes! Take the time to stop, you will enjoy it.

Lots and lots of cheese. Samples of everything as well. Never go there on an empty stomach. You will try all the samples.

Came across this place by chance and boy am I glad I did. Samples of every kind of cheese imaginable and they are all good. I bought their onion cheese and their Basil and Olive Oil Asiago cheese. I had a hard time not buying more.

We have seen the signs for Grandpa's every time we drive to and from Columbus. We finally stopped to check it out. Lots of delicious looking products. We bought 2 types of cheese, and they are super. The only thing we did not like was that you had to buy at least a half pound of cheese. We would have... More

My fiancé & I first went here summer of 2013 on our way back from Vermont. We loved it so much that he took me back as a surprise for v-day 2014. We went back to grandpas & explored more into Amish country. They have a huge selection of everything. We really like the jams & jelly because they offer... More

This was a really fun place to visit. Don't walk in hungry because they have a ton of samples from meats, jams, and of course cheeses! Everything was really good. Make sure to visit Sweeties (the chocolate shop) right next door.
