Love this type of food

My mom is bohemian so I grew up and make the family version of this at home. The food is truely "homemade" so that in and of itself stands out. Traditional dishes such as roast pork, sauerkraut and dumplings are great! The meals include, soup, coffee and desert, you cant beat the value. And rye... read more

Their atmosphere and food are obviously old school Polish and German, but they don't hold a candle to grandma's cooking! To start with, their dishes are too bland. And brown. And watery. The duck is good, as are the pierogi. Give them a try if you like Polish food, but be ready to carb load too!

We stopped with some friends who picked Old Town to have dinner. They both had the fried white fish, my wife had the sauerbraten and I had the Lithuanian plate. All was very very good. Even the soup (mushroom barley) was extraordinary. The service and the atmosphere was also great. We will be back.

When my husband and I go to Old Town we always say no menu please. The reason being I always have the pickled beef in sour cream sauce with dumplings and my husband has the 1/2 duck dinner. Very rarely have we been disappointed. The service is good and the prices are reasonable as well. Try their liver dumpling soup--yummy... More

We really like Eastern European food having been raised with that type of food growing up. Having eaten in many similar style restaurants, we always do compare. I feel that this one makes the dishes similarly, but had a little better tasting meals like this in other Chicago area places. The other thing I noticed were that their prices are... More

I have had dinner there on at least a dozen occaisions...I would recommend the Potato Dill Soup the Pierogi's and espicially the Lithuanian Sausage, only thing I didn't like is the Bread dumplings, Bland and chewy.

The family loves going to this place for Pierogis, potato pancakes and tripe soup. The service is always great and very friendly. It's especially great when it's cold outside…very hearty and tummy filling!

Small German/Polish restaurant that has great classic eastern european dishes. The server was Polish and so was the draft beer, both were great. I had the German plate and a friend had the Polish plate both were excellent. This was a good way to get a variety of entrees. They close early on weeknights so make sure to check their... More
