My husband and I stopped here for lunch today and were blown away! This place is part retail and part restaurant. There are a few different rooms that have a table here and there. There were about 5 samples of cheese to try, and one flavored butter. We ended up bringing a few of those home. The decor is all... More

We figured we couldn't go to Wisconsin without going to a cheese factory. We caught it on a day when they weren't making cheese, but it was still fun to see the equipment. The food was OK, but we had to wait a long time to get it which was odd because it seemed like there weren't many patrons. It's... More

Since the Fall foliage is beginning to appear, we decided to meet family and friends in Somerset Wisconsin at the Bass Lake Cheese Factory. Even though it is primarily a cheese factory and retail outlet for their product, the owners have incorporated a small restaurant at their factory. The lunch menu focuses on cheese related food, after all this is... More

5 of us went for lunch and had a great time. The atmosphere is enjoyable with lots of antiques, variety of cheeses to purchase & sample...even cheese made in the shape of a cow & the state of Wisconsin! Easy to find, beautiful scenery, nice help, delicious food! Only down side was the cost. We ordered 3 burgers & a... More

This place was ok. We went on a day they weren't making cheese. The cheese curds are not my favorite. But it's a good place to check out if you are in the area.

Wonderful that there is a small restaurant. So much goodness here. A must stop for cheese and ice cream when in the area, and now lunch or dinner.

I always knew that the Bass Lake Cheese Factory had great cheese and ice cream but I had forgotten about their delicious lunch and dinner options. Thankful I was reminded when I took my mom and daughter here for lunch last week. Can you say delicious but reasonable lunch spot? I had the burger with the onion/blue cheese topping. Wow!... More

Specialty sandwiches prepared to your liking. Had the special when I was there. Hope they add it to the menu. Have the fried cheese curds and the fried pickles- even if you have to go twice!

Don't try somewhere else first! This should be your first and last stop! In St. Paul, MN for a week of school and couple of days of relaxation and trip to WI to purchase cheese.

If you are out Somerset way the best thing you can do to make yourself happy would be to stop in to the Bass lake cheese factory for a grilled cheese and a cold beer. Many varieties on the classic grilled cheese are available for you to enjoy!

Don't know if this is a restaurant or an attraction, but I know this is a very cool place. Nothing much happening in the cheese making room when we were there, but great cheese and interesting wine served deli-style.
