After looking over this place here on TripAdvisor we decided to stop by for lunch this past weekend. My hopes weren't through the roof, but I was still heavily let down. From the "oh, we don't have that beer, or that one, or that one..."...More

The food was really good, but they only take cash and you'll probably have a wait, as they have a small seating area. It was worth the wait! Ruben was one of the best I've had. The pretzel was fantastic, but the beer in the...More

We took a break from all the craziness of Gatlinburg and split a reuben and a beer. The sandwich was delicious and the restaurant provided a much needed break from all of the tourists.

The cheese selection was wonderful. Very friendly service. My wife and I come to Gatlinburg every year and the cheese cupboard is somewhere we will always make time for.

The restaurant is upstairs. The menu is limited but the food is delicious. We enjoyed it so much we went back before we left. They also have a great selection of German Beers. The Rueben is as delicious as advertised.

We wanted to sit and have lunch while walking and shopping in Gatlinburg but didn’t want fast food or long lines. We got lucky when we walked into this little cheese shop and found they had an upstairs cafe. The best knockwurst and Rueben’s we’ve...More
