We ate here twice just to try all the different foods. Pirogi, brats and stuffed cabbage - yummy! Great place to pop in for lunch! The staff was great! Very helpful to confused out-of-towners!

My brother made a point to take us here while we were in town. It was amazing! The service was great, all our questions were answered quickly and with a smile. The food was incredible. Be sure to get the cherry delight for dessert, you won't regret it!

I am a local and I go here constantly. Everything is delicious, especially the sausages, stews and imperial pastries. Staff is friendly and atmosphere is chill. May seem a little expensive but it is so good it is completely worth it. Free parking too :)

My father went to Kramrczuk's each Saturday starting from the late 1950's until the 80's to buy sausages. The deli section not only displays many types of sausages and other meats but also, candies, breads, ets. We ate in the restaurant section and ordered the kind of food we loved in childhood such as stuffed cabbage, the sausages but the... More

We enjoyed trying the eastern European foods, some we had heard of, others not so much. Everything we had was delicious and the ladies behind the counter were very helpful in helping us decide what to get (basically we had a sampler and a couple other things). Large portions, reasonable priced. very casual atmosphere. And, you better like sour cream... More

We were intrigued by the reviews which we read before we got to Minneapolis. I spoke with a friend who lives in town and she said the good smells from the street would drive you wild and she was right. We had no idea what to order and the buffet waitress "took us by the hand" and definitely did us... More

Okay, before you go (and you definitely should), study the menu on-line. We've been here many times and everything we've had here is excellent, but it's all so good it's difficult to chose. We've had the borscht, cabbage rolls, szegedin goulash, Ukrainian meatballs, and varenyky (all types). There are probably 12 - 15 different types of sausages for purchase in... More

We discovered Kramarczuk's 30 years ago soon after we moved to Minneapolis. At that time, it was a somewhat rundown but fabulous sausage store, staffed by people some of whom spoke no English and who prepared home-style, fresh sausages using Old World recipes. We discovered their brats and have maintained for years that they are the best brats in the... More

All I can say is "Wow", I loved this place. Best Kielbasa I ever had. We also tried the cabbage rolls, goulash stew and Ukrainian meatballs. Portions are huge, and so is the flavour. Some great local beers on tap and in bottles. Something about sausages and beer that makes a perfect combination. It's busy and a bit of an... More
