Amazing food and such friendly staff. Creme brûlée was the best! Don’t miss this sweet place! We were in New Glarus for a weekend and went there both Friday and Saturday nights.

First things first. I love cheese curds. I have eaten many types from many different restaurants. These are one of the best! Lightly battered. The guacamole was very good also. The menu looks wonderful and our meal was very good. Will go back again!

I highly recommend Kristi’s. It had an old time elegance and charm. The food was fantastic and the service superb. Moderately priced for such quality. The New York Strip was cooked to perfection .

During a recent trip to New Glarus we stopped in here for lunch. I have to admit, it wasn't our first choice, but it will be from now on. The atmosphere was really cool, as it appears to be an old Victorian style house. The...More
