Best polish food in the area. They offer a variety of Polish American specialties. Great soups and very good potato pancakes.

This is a restaurant I started visiting several years ago. The restaurant hasn't changed that much after new owners took over. They offer a buffet or menu items. The staff speaks English and Polish. The food is delicious and priced fairly. I like their stuffed cabbage and chicken soup. They offer other Polish foods like pirogi, potato pancakes, sour kraut,... More

I took my parents here on a Friday afternoon for the buffet. What a nice selection. Potato pancakes and cheese blintzes outstanding. They replenished the food when it ran low. My dad who always doesn't like something had nothing but compliments. Price was well worth it. Must give it a try.

I have fond memories of eating the breaded pork and stuffed cabbage rolls we ordered for takeout years ago. But I was disappointed eating her in August. The buffet either has food that has been out for too long or there isn't enough of some item. Decor is old.
