“Did someone say cheese curds? Their deep fried cheese curds are the closest you’re going to find to actually being in Wisconsin. YUM. It’s a cozy bar inside with an outdoor patio. You can catch a game on their big screen TVs. Parking can be tricky - if the lot is full, check side streets but be sure to read “residential parking only” signs. ”
