We were told to go here by one of the museum staff who told us that Dale Chihuly and some of his workers used to go here on breaks, and he donated some glassworks to the bar. They are sitting right over the bar and look to be some pretty early pieces of his work. I had chicken tacos, and my husband had the brats. Both dishes were great as was the local beer.

In town overnight and the hotel we were staying at recommended The Swiss.

Great selection of beer. Live music after 9ish. The food was great. The service was the BEST. Thank you Denise! You are AWESOME!

We will certainly go here again if we are in town.

The Swiss is a great venue. An historic wooden bar in one room, a game room in another. Great choice in band that play there. For bar food they have a wide selection of food, reasonably priced and reasonably portioned.
