Our story starts with home. From the rolling dairy farm-filled hills that stretch as far as the eye can see to those long Wisconsin winters, we love everything that comes with being a Cheesehead.
It’s our home. It’s our pride. It’s who we are.
As born and bred Wisconsinites, we always dreamt of a place where people could come together over ultimate comfort foods. Where guests can enjoy a meal that’s not only delicious, but celebrates what makes our home so special – cheese! That’s how Grate began, with a dream of genuine, uncomplicated goodness in its purest form.
And that’s what sets us apart. It’s not just our locally sourced ingredients. It’s not just our stone-baked thin & crispy pizzas or our famous mac and cheese. It’s a taste of home – and we can’t wait to share it with you.
While we originally opened just selling our made-from-scratch mac & cheese entrees – a first for Milwaukee – we quickly expanded our menu offerings based on demand and our stone-baked, thin crust pizzas quickly became just as popular as our mac & cheese. We now offer a wide variety of menu items from mac & cheese to stone-oven baked thin crust pizzas with housemade dough to warm breadsticks with whipped garlic herb butter, fresh salads, fire-roasted wings and premium-topped hotdogs. There’s a flavor for everyone and everyone has a flavor!
Using only the best in Wisconsin dairy products, we’re putting our own twist on ultimate comfort foods like our famous macaroni and cheese, stone-baked pizzas and hotdogs. Featuring an open, casual atmosphere, it’s a place where the whole family can be full of belly and of heart.
Though you may not want to share your food (with signature dishes like Garlic Parmesan Chicken Mac & Cheese, Mexican Street Corn Mac & Cheese, Caprese Pizza and our Caramelized Onion & Bacon Hotdog, who could blame you?) you’ll want to share the experience. Choose from our specially crafted, tried and true recipes or create your own – ahem – mac-sterpiece, watch your creation finish to gooey, delicious perfection in our Woodstone oven, and dig into something, well, Grate.
