I don't really have much to add other than that after 4 trips to New Glarus I can say that this is the best and probably only place you really need to go other then the brewery. They will usually have a more comprehensive selection on tap than the brewery and the food is solid.

The service has been top notch, the food has been great (I've ordered from the menu and I've had specials), and they have just about any New Glarus beer that you can get at a given time. The pizza place down the street is great for a beer but the pizza is lackluster. Even though this is a bit pricier, you wont leave disappointed.

This place is the shit. Been here twice so far and they have more NG on tap than the brewery! The food here is to die for especially the cheese curds, oh god the cheese curds. If youre in New Glarus and don't hit this place you have truly missed out

The bartender really knows his stuff and they have 20+ new glarus vintage bottles. We went in at a slow time and they showed us around back where they have their slow cooker with some ribs going. True class at this place

Cant wait to be back!

Cheers
Peter

Outstanding experience. After some drinks at the NG Brewery, I stopped here for a light dinner. I am told that the prime rib and potatoes are excellent, but I only made it through a cheese platter and a cheese fondue before feeling fully satiated. The bar itself has a smooth copper surface, and the overall ambience is similar to those you find in northern Wisconsin. The cheese platter featured nuts instead of crackers, and featured some sharp, smoky selections. No havarti, no milds. This is cheese-lover's cheese. The fondue consisted of emmentaler and white wine.

Also of note is a wide array of New Glarus beers. If you are in town and the brewery is already closed (as they are known to do at 4pm), fear not, because this destination will fulfill all of those desires that brought you to New Glarus in the first place.

I frequent New Glarus 5-10 times a year. I only eat somewhere other than Glarner Stube if they are closed or if we are just driving through to Madison. I have had many things on the menu and have liked them all. You must, and I mean must, always have cheese curds for appetizer. Price is a little high for some of the Swiss dishes, but you can't get these dishes most places. Glarner Stube has consistently good quality food and a decent selection of New Glarus beers on tap. You shouldn't ask for much more in a small town like that. Prost!

Visited the Glarner Stube for dinner and beers in April 2011.
First, they have probably the best on-tap NG selection in existence. Had current offerings, unpluggeds (had Abt, Smoked Rye and Apple Ale all on tap), and things that haven't been available for months. Service was very good, food was very good. However, the only down side was the price. Food was around $20/plate, which isn't awful, but is more than I usually spend on a normal dinner. Atmosphere was really neat as well...all wood, a little dark...it kind of makes you imagine what a swiss restaurant was like 70 years ago.

Ahhh, The Glarner Stube translated to "The Living Room of New Glarus".

Had a massive, tasty and VERY filling lunchtime Sunday meal here with my three traveling companions after we did a quick tour of NGBC.

Anywhere bold enough to claim the Midwest's largest urinal desrves a look see in my book!

Built inside like a traditional Swiss chalet with the bar in the front room and a small, cozy dining area in the back. Wood, old photos and knick-knacks everywhere.

There are ten taps and ALL of them New Glarus beers! This is the NGBC de facto tap house. I heard/saw they have some bottled selections but really...who cares?

Our service on this gloriusly cool day was efficient, friendly and spot on. I really could not have asked for more.

Now for the highlight of the experience, the food! Traditional Swiss/Wisconsinite cuisine featuring a vast array of Swiss/German/Wisconsin dishes such as sauer brauten (what I had), fondue, schnitzel, wursts, Schublig, pastetli, and the most decadent dish of all dish of all, Roesti! Roesti is a shredded and fried potatoe dish and here it is inundated with TONS of grated Swiss cheese, YUM!

A wonderful place that deserves to be listed on the MUST things to do list if in the area to chek out NGBC. A true Midwest classic! They must be doing something right....it has been open since 1901....hard to argue IMHO!

Visited on 11/29/2008.

My wife and I stopped in here for a a late lunch based on the recommendation of an employee at the New Glarus Brewery. Not expecting too much, we were blown away by this place!

Upon entering, we found that this is a narrow and deep building with the bar area in the front and the main dining area in the rear. Smoking was sort of contained in the bar area and there was no smoking alowed in the back.

Decor was comfortable...wood paneled with lots of kitchey stuff hanging on the walls. The wait staff all wore New Glarus brewing t-shirts as their uniform and the water glasses on each table were New Glarus Brewing shaker pint glasses.

The menu boasted that Glarner Stube has the greatest number of New Glarus beers on tap anywhere in the world outside of the brewery itself. They had about 8-10 selections when I was there.

The food was very inexpensive and incredibly good. My wife had the pork schnitzel and I had a prime rib sandwich. Both were great (far exceeding our expectations) and they were just $7.99 each.

When I go back to New Glarus, I will definitely be visiting this place again. Highly recommended!
