I have been to this cheese factory twice now to dine. It's a little out of the way, but worth the drive for lunch or dinner and buy some cheese curds too. Best deep fried cheese curds!

My husband and I have been here twice after canoeing on nearby lakes. It is a lovely setting with people coming from all different directions. Wonderful selection of drinks and cheeses! Menu items are unique and flavorful. Lots of outdoor seating with shade umbrellas.

I have shopped there for 40 years. Their cheese selection is wonderful, especially their cheese curds. I haven't eaten at their restaurant but if it is as good as their cheese, it will be wonderful.

We were in town for a hockey tournament and Bass Lake Cheese Factory was highly recommended. Fantastic selection, very fair priced, great staff and delicious! Will definitely visit again when in the area.

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.
