“Oh, the cheese choices!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

It may be small, but Surdyk's has an unbelievble variety! A wall of Olive Oil, breads, pastas and condiments - and that's just the first aisle. Then, you round the corner and see the largest selection of domestic and international cheeses! Ask the cheese mongers for a sample or two - they're friendly and can advise for your taste/needs. The deli is just a few steps away and a bit small, but still had a very nice selection. Didn't expect this much variety in this small shop, but was delightfully surprised! This would be a great place to put together the fixings for a picnic - and there's always a lake nearby in Minnesota!

“Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013 via mobile

All foodies will love this place. Love there cheese and meat slections. Sandwiches are so awesome. Gourmet grocery is top notch. Only wish this part of the store was bigger.

“When you need the right cheese”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

They can do it. I have a fondness for ripe Brie and creamy Stiltons. They can get the job done. Very happy to sample cheeses.

“Great Cheese, too may customers not enough employees”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

The cheese is out of this world, it's great how much the employee's know about the cheese and can make recommendations. But to wait an hour to get served because of that many customers and to have 4 employees working the cheese section is disappointing.
