So you voted and we heard loud and clear. We are in the process of building the feature for you now. Take a look back soon and check out the review with high resolution photography. Enjoy!

Below is from their website…

We are a unique combination of European-style cheese shop and intimate American bistro. We provide a casual-upscale dining environment overlooking the lake with a small deli that offers high-end cheeses and meats by the pound. Voted #1 in the Best Mac and Cheese competition at the Houston Cheesefest 2016, we invite you to try any of our gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches, salads, soups and mac. We also offer one of the best cheese plates around, along with several custom-selected wines and local craft beers to pair with your meal. Everything we provide is made to order whether you are dining in or to go.

We are set upon a lovely greens area that overlooks a lake. Kids are welcome to run around on the grass while mom and dad relax on the patio with their wine, beer and cheese plate. Both kid and pet friendly, we also offer bottles of wine and beer to go, along with a small selection of retail items such as jams, nuts, olives, bread and crackers.

The nose on this wine has earthy, almost leathery, notes to it. With a rich mouth-feel, you can taste the mocha and chocolate covered fruit dance on your palate

Made with Karbach beer and a blend of six cheeses, topped with bacon and green onions, served in a pretzel bowl.
