Bite Into It
We can't talk cheese in the Stevens Point Area, without mentioning Arbuckles. Known for their Italian Fries, you can't miss this cheese topped comfort food. Never been? The fries start with a seasoned buttery pizza crust, topped with Mozzarella, and baked. Once the cheese is melted to perfection, they cut it in strips and serve it with marinara on the side.
In Plover at Mikey’s Bar & Grill, you don't want to miss the Three Cheese Mac. The classic comfort food, brimming with melty, gooey cheese is topped with crispy toasted panko crumbs & served with crostini.
Head over to Guu's on Main in Stevens Point for their signature Mac & Cheese bowls. Serving up four tasty options to choose from you can be sure to get your cheese fixing here. Try the fan favorite Pulled Pork Mac, Guu's creamy and delicious mac topped with pulled pork, BBQ, and fried onion strings.
Take it Home
A cheese lover’s paradise is at Mullins Cheese. Try some deep-fried cheese curds when you stop in but don’t forget to take some to go! From four-cheese take-and-bake pizzas to specialty cheeses and fresh squeaky cheese curds, they will have something to satisfy your cheesy needs!
Feltz’s Dairy Store is another perfect option to take home some cheese to enjoy. Here you'll find blocks, fresh cheese curds made on-site, spreads, and cheese trays with fresh Wisconsin Cheese. Of course, you can always grab a scoop of ice cream - or some deep-fried curds while you are there while browsing their selection of meat, pizzas, ice cream, and milk!
If you aren't afraid of a drive, head out to Dairy State Cheese Company in Rudolph! Just 10 miles outside of Stevens Point, you can enjoy over 200 types and styles of Wisconsin cheese, and be sure to check out the fresh cheese curds being made from the window!
Check out Ski's Meat Market for their variety of Wisconsin-produced cheese, Father Fats for an artisan cheese board, or The Wooden Chair for a chicken pita pizza. Learn more about other restaurants to find your own cheese favorites in the Stevens Point area here.
