“It's just a grilled cheese sandwich”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

This grilled cheese certainly wasn't anything to write home about. The bread was nicely browned and crispy but where was the cheese? I would expect it to be oozing out from all sides of the bread, wasn't so. Save your money, make one at home and try another restaurant.

“Not worth the hype or line or price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

We were drawn to it by rave reviews and world class medals for the Mac & cheese. Sadly, it did not live up to all of that so we were a bit disappointed after waiting in the long line and jockeying for seats in the small dining area. Luckily those seats overlooked their production kitchen so at least we got to see cheese being made.

“Good but CROWDED!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

Since they started serving food, it's really crowded. If you just want cheese, walk inside. The line out the door is for food.

“Mmmmmmm...Cheeeeese.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012 via mobile

Ok. Cheese bias here. Shared the mac 'n cheese and grilled cheese sandwich. Loved them both. Wash it down with a ginger ale and it's a great lunch. Crowded on a Sunday, and decided to eat outside, but with people watching and good food, I'm glad we trusted the Tripadvisor advice once again.
