We were in town for a show at the Vic Theatre and decided to walk over for a late dinner after the show. The food was decent enough, staff was very nice. The place was packed which may have been because of the show, not sure. The atmosphere is very colorful as were the people. I would come again if... More

Interesting menu choices. Paired with a great beer and you have a good start to your evening. If you're looking for quiet conversation this is not the place.

I did the Lunch special which is half a sandwhich and a side. Perfect for me - 45 year old mom. My 6th grade son did the same but wishes he had gotten a full sandwhich.

When I feel the need to shove as much bread and cheese into my gullet as humanly possible, I visit Cheesies. With more varieties of grilled cheeses than anyone would every need, you're always going to find something to hit the spot. The sandwiches are huge. I always tell myself I won't eat the entire thing - and then I... More

My daughter and I were seeing a show at the Annoyance Theatre and walked a block to Cheesie's. Had a great experience- friendly staff, reasonable price, and a great Grilled Cheese sandwich. A dozen or so varieties!

Popped in here the other night after we were out drinking for a late night bite and was not disappointed! "The MAC" sandwich is to die for and I will literally dream about it, such a cute unique place!

Near our hotel so we stopped in for a drink. Had hard root beer on tap. This place was jumpin. The grilled cheese sandwich and soup was delicious on a cold snowy night.. The music was also good too.

Cheesie's offers a variety of grilled cheese specialty options. Can't go wrong the "The Mac," although "The Tenderizer" can do the trick if you're up for the task. Patrons visiting before mid night may want to reconsider their life choices.

Cheesie's gives off a "hole in the wall" vibe with a cozy atmosphere and very down to earth workers. They have a pretty large menu of specialty grilled cheese sandwiches and a well-stocked bar. During this visit I tried the Tenderizer and found it to be exactly what I wanted. The seasoned fries that came with it were delicious as... More
