    Quite possibly the best Grilked Ham and Cheese Sammy you will have in your entire life. Add Kallas Mustard and a beer and you have perfection!! Great bar as well!

    Think of everything you love about Wisconsin...you can pretty much find it all here. With so much history, this place has become a landmark that exemplifies what makes Wisconsin truly awesome.

    Grilled Ham and Cheese Sandwich, Mac N Cheese, and New Glarus Spotted Cow - can't go wrong! Gotta explore and taste all the delicious cheese, definitely take home some Cheddar Popcorn!

    I loved the castle prior to remodeling... It was charming . It's nice now and the samples are great choices ... It seems a little more commercial now.. But still good

    Have to sample the cheeses and desserts on display. Great place for unique beers, wines and yes, even hot sauces you wouldn't find at your local grocery store. Very fun place to visit and experience!

    So much amazing cheese...IN A FAKE CASTLE! Get some curds. And make sure to grab some spotted cow beer as well since you can't buy it in Chicago :(

    Most convenient place to stop along I-94 in Southern Wisconsin to smuggle New Glarus and mouthwatering sausages and delectable cheeses into Illinois.

    Wonderful new location actually looks like a real castle! The Mars Tavern now has its own entrance, too. Huge new store for cheeze, deli items, liquor & other foods.

    Raspberry filled sugar cookies are very tasty. Just don't look for them after I visit, I usually buy their remaining stock for the day!

    Should you need lunch, I highly recommend the Kings Ransom sandwich, toasted. It's fantastic and definitely big enough to share!!

    Authentic cheese curds must be fresh! If they don't squeak when you bite, then they are not fresh! Malcore's are usually great.

    Awesome cheese, but don't forget the beer. You can mix and match New Glarus- six packs of the regular varieties, four packs of their limited releases.
