We hit Grandpa's on our trips...both coming and going. It is an interesting spot with a neat history. The variety and types of cheese is HUGE and the staff very helpful. Prices are GREAT and samples are plentiful. There is the local Amish made varieties as well as many other cheeses, dips, crackers, jams, dressings, meats and across the way the Candy shop.

There also is a snack bar and ice cream counter.

The selection of cheese and trail balonga (old sold in Ohio) was worth the trip. Loaded up 2 times this year to take as gifts out of state. Excellent service.

Grandpa's Cheesebarn is a quaint little down home kind of stop. After driving for hours on the road, it's the perfect place to relax. There is the cheese shop with a huge selection of fresh cheeses, salsas, pickles, etc. Downstairs there's a shop for little knickknacks , homemade
jellies and other trinkets. Don't leave without hitting the ice cream/sandwich shop and you'll
kick yourself if you don't visit the candy shop full of delicious chocolates as well as old time
throwback candy you remember when you were a kid. This isn't the most exciting attraction, but
if you travel this route often you'll find yourself coming back again and again.

We had a great time stopping off here on our way to Louisville. So much stuff to taste and see. The best part was the Amish people outside selling the stuff they make. We bought a couple things and they were very nice.

Oh Grandpa's.... You see signs for pretty much once you get out of Cleveland or Columbus on 71. And since there's not a whole lot in between the 2 towns it's a great place to stop.

Bit of advice, come hungry! There are soooo many things to sample, and buy! pickles, meats, pickled meats, bread, dips, spreads, and of course, cheese! 2 floors of it in fact!! Sadly, they don't have a lot of their cheese curds to sample, which i thought was a bummer as they had so many varieties of curds! I ended up buying some and they weren't too bad at all!

There is also ice cream and a small deli in the building. And the main thing, is the grilled cheese. Taken from the cheeses just upstairs! The food is very decently priced and pretty large portions too! I took half my sandwich home! the chicken salad sandwich is excellent! If you check in on facebook or foursquare you get a free scoop of ice cream, so there's that too.

There is also a chocolate shop across the parking lot, and if you're looking for a place to hunker down , they have small bed and breakfast cabins on the property as well. This is a great stop to stretch your legs, get some food, and of course, pick up some cheese as a snack on your drive!
