Very fun

I think I have been to Grandpa's Cheese Barn twice and I have to admit that I didn't buy anything either time I visited. I think after I went through and tried all of the samples, that I couldn't make up my mind (and I was probably full). Everything was very good, well not everything because... read more

Very bad building. Not safe. Fire trap. Steep stairs. No exit lights or signs. Treads short. No exit enclosure.

It was time for a bathroom break on our travels up 71N. We were amused by the concept of Grandpa's Cheese Barn and decide to stop there for a funny check-in on Facebook. The joke was on us as we entered the building. An amazingly friendly staff, clean restrooms, and great road snacks to fill the car. We sampled all... More

I have visited Grandpa's Cheese Barn twice. The first time was in June 2014 on a family vacation, and again two weeks ago. This is a place/attraction I will definitely go back to many more times. From the large white barns with the red roofs, easy access to the interstate, friendly staff and lots of free samples, this is definitely... More

We never travel along 71 without stopping for some cheese. This place is a gem. However, prepare to deal with a crowd. I assure you it's worth it. One change that I noticed - they used to offer a little cafe that was full service with waitresses. It is now a quick service (order and oick up yourself) arrangement. Also,... More

What's not to love about this place. The folks are always friendly, service is always great even when it's packed full of people. You get to sample some amazing cheeses, spread,pickles and more. They have the best darn potato soup around. A bowl of that with a piece of cornbread yum. When your done there cross the parking lot to... 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.
