“Back to the basics and it was great”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

It was nice to order some old fashioned normal food. My 13yr old daughter and I each ordered a cold sandwich and both agreed it was one of the best sandwiches we have had in years. Atmosphere kept us looking and entertained . Glad we stopped here

“Perfect tavern menu”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

Not everyone will get excited by a braunschweiger on rye sandwich but I was. It's just something that you never see on a menu . That and a nice cold spotted cow - perfect Saturday lunch for me

“Local Color”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

Great Cheese Store with a tavern attached. Have a cold one and the cheese sandwich of your choice. A local fav, but great for tourists as well. Decor has not changed for years, but why change when it works? Visit to see the murals of Switzerland on the wall, taste the cheese, or have a drink.

“Interesting place.”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

Good corned beef sandwich, but cool atmosphere right on the square. Spotted cow on tap. Soups are specialty but ours were each ok, not outstanding. Remember to look up when you go!

“Great food. Great atmosphere.”
Reviewed June 1, 2014 via mobile

Every time I go to visit Monroe, I have to stop by for lunch or dinner... especially on Wednesdays. Half rack or full rack ribs. I've never had a bad experience when I visit this restaurant. The cheese shop in the front always has an excellent selection. No matter what your taste in cheese is, you're sure to find something that you'd like.
