Say Cheese! Restaurant & Cheese
We also house a full service, 72-seat restaurant featuring unique grilled cheeses, soups, cheese plates and our signature 6 cheese mac n' cheese! We pride ourselves on making everything from scratch and with lots of love.
. In addition, Sunday’s are a real treat at Say Cheese! We host a Sunday Brunch that is second to none that features classics like Eggs Benedict. But the really fun menu items are Breakfast Grit Bowl and the Breakfast Burger.
Say cheese is a hidden gem in an reviving section of Reading, PA. The menu is always changing and using local produce and meats. The whole atmosphere rocks!!
We have dined here maybe 7 times, always enjoying our experience up until this last visit. I don’t know if they have new cooks or not, but the food was sub par this time. It pains me to leave this review because I’ve thoroughly enjoyed everything that has touched my palate from here n the past. I will start by saying that the smoked salmon deviled eggs were delicious. Our friends thought they were way too salty. I ordered the lamb burger. As it was definitely cooked to my liking, it was overwhelmed by grease and way too much feta cheese. A friend ordered the cheese curds appetizer. Again, way too greasy and honestly tasted liked fried mozzarella. One of the biggest let downs, was that they are no longer BYOB!
This won’t be my last visit here, but I will strongly suggest other places for dinner before I mention Say Cheese as an option again.
Food was great. Service was, too. We were gabbing and visiting a long time. And never felt rushed. But still tended to. A lovely experience!
Food was delicious, waitress was nice however Once we paid the check waitress no longer asked if we needed water or anything as we still sat there enjoying each other’s coming on our night out. We probably would have gotten / paid for more drinks as well.
No dressing on my salad, had to ask for it.
Unique menu. Server was more than happy to accommodate special requests and do separate checks for our large group. Love using Open Table for reservations, super easy. Will definitey return!
Their menu is unique and changes with the season. I've enjoyed each and every meal I've ever ordered there.
Great menu, great food, and great service! We'd like to see Kombucha added to the non-alcoholic drink selection, though.
I've been here 3 times and each time Say Cheese does not disappoint. This time we made sure to leave room for dessert and WOW. My husband is not a cheesecake person and does not give out compliments readily, but even he said the red velvet cheesecake (which is a red velvet cake with cream cheese icing and a cheesecake center) was "fantastic." I opted for the 6 cheese mac and cheese (which is always perfection) and a hearty french onion soup, while he chose the soup of the day (a rich and flavorful cheddar and broccoli) and the special which was a delicious chicken breast with what seemed like a dijon mustard cheese sauce and homemade ricotta ravioli with broccoli. The ravoli was delicate, not too rich, and filled with the perfect amount of ricotta filling. The chicken was tender and flavorful (come on, I HAD to steal a bite of both). While your arteries would not appreciate regular visits to Say Cheese, your mouth will, and I'm hoping to make dining here a monthly tradition.
My husband and I love eating at Say Cheese! Their cheese plates are amazing and the honey and jam pairings are perfect! My husband always gets the Say Cheeseburger. Their sweet potato fries are good, but definitely try their regular fries, too! Not Your Mama’s Deviled Eggs are different each week but the ones I have had are very good (especially the ones with crab or caviar). Get one of their specialty alcoholic drinks to go with your meal! And if you like macaroni and cheese, my husband says to get the salmon on top! My favorite meal ever there is the scallop dinner (though they don’t have this all the time). Check out their seasonal seafood options - they’re always good!
Good food but a little on the cold side when it hit our table.
Sooooooo gooooooood! We had such a great time and I can’t wait to go back!
Great time at Say Cheese. This restaurant is a safe bet on Fridays during lent for meals without meat.
Service was a little slow this time as the restaurant was busy, but nothing that made us want to leave or decide that we wouldn't be back. Check their website for hours as the restaurant is moving towards summer hours soon. Also, check out their Sunday Brunch, it is fantastic!
Delicious meal and even better dessert!!!
Love the food and the selection of cheese
There were seven in our party. Everyone enjoyed there but for some reason one person’s main meal came out lukewarm while the rest were piping hot. I had the eggplant napoleon and the harvest ricotta salad. Both were wonderfully prepared. I especially enjoyed the lemon ricotta on the salad. Four had the pierogi meal and all of them liked that as well. The other two were the meatloaf and the prime rib which were also liked.
Frickle app great as always, entrees creative, delicious and cooked perfectly, service smooth and knowledgeable, quality wine to boot. One of the best of its kind, not just in West Reading but anywhere.
The service was good. The food tasted good but is loaded with fat, not very healthy.
If you want something a little different, try Say Cheese!! Excellent!
One of my favorite restaurants. Everything has always been excellent.
Didn’t care for sitting in the front window. I had also asked for a bottle of wine for the table when I made the reservation and it was never received. The food and service for the meal were good.
3 members of our party ordered the Butternut Squash soup that was a special for that evening. We were disappointed in the consistency of the soup, it was very thin. Typically, this recipe is moderately thick and this serving was quite thin. Otherwise our meal was very good.
I'm sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the soup! If there is something you ordered that is not to your liking we are always happy to get you something in place of it. I saw that you gave us a 2 star review. Was that due to just the soup or was there something else we could improve on? We appreciate feedback as we always try and provide an enjoyable dining experience to our guests.
Really like this place. Waitress was great!
Eight of us went for brunch and everyone raves about what they picked. The variety of offerings was impressive. Our server handled the big group with ease. We will definitely go back soon!
Thank you for the review! We hope to see you again soon!
Our appetizer was delicious! We chose the fried pickles. For my entree, I had the chicken salad with hot bacon dressing. It was huge and very tasty. My friend had the Macaroni and cheese. She said it was good but didn't have a lot of flavor. We shared the ice cream sandwich for dessert which was just ok. We had a very nice Mom's night out!
I met a few friends for a Galentine’s dinner. The food was delicious and the service was good. The floor after passing the kitchen into the back room was super slippery though. We were all dressed up and were fearful of biting it hard.
The red snapper was perfectly done and had great flavor but it was the Lancaster sausage was the real star of the show.
In short; the food was incredible, the service was friendly and prompt. I plan on returning and enjoying the rest of their menu in the near future. I would highly recommend this venue.
A lot of friends were asking questions about the place we went to. People enjoyed the pictures and presentation of the food.
For the price I paid I don’t think the food was that great, it was just OK. almost $150 bill for two people is a little ridiculous. The service was outstanding though.
Amazing salads that paired wonderfully with the cheese platter. Yum!
Great charcuterie. Awesome Caesar salad. Great dinner.
One of my favorite spots!
the food is always delicious. love this little place.
I am a Chef in New England. I had a great meal. Great cheese and charcuterie, good Caesar and the lamb burger was awesome. I’ll go back next time I am in town. My waitress Elllen was very good, knowledgeable, friendly and didn’t rush me through dinner. Great service.
We enjoyed our meal before a movie. I had the Brussels sprout, butternut squash salad. It was very good. So many flavors. The burgers were great! Love setting out front in the large windows.
Great meal and service especially for the area.
Say Cheese! always has a good selection of vegetarian options, excellent soups, and great service. We will be back!
Sometimes it’s goid sometimes it’s not.
Cheese tastes different every time
Food, as usual was very good. Meatloaf was really moist and delicious. Would have given 5 stars, but ventilation was bad (kitchen smell predominated the restaurant). Flirt was dirty, food under our table when we sat down. Otherwise, I always enjoy meals here.
The restaurant lends itself to casual conversation, it is a nice place with excellent food, I recommend.
The portions of the red snapper were so small they almost look like steak fries. The fish was not the star of the plate,
My wife’s prime rib was well done not rate as ordered. They should give up on prime rib ! I did notice that the owner was not there cooking . It to bad I’ve had many great meals here.
I remember talking to you, and again, I'm very sorry everything was not to your liking. Aside from taking the prime rib off your bill and offering to remake your meal again, is there something more we could have done to make this a better experience for you? We understand you have had many good meals before, and if there is anything that is not to your liking please let us know right away as we always want your experience here to be an enjoyable one.
