A good meal

We went recently on a Friday night we were early so not too crowded. We were seated right away. The staff were very friendly and did a great job. the place is nothing fancy and a mix of families and couples. Food was good not great but we really enjoyed the cabbage rolls and pierogies... read more

My husband and I visited Gadawski's in June 2014 with our two young children. The restaurant is a Notre Dame themed Polish Family bar and restaurant. Family owners were present and welcoming. You could tell that all of the food was made from scratch and it was delicious. I would recommend the cabbage rolls but save room for the dessert!... More

Good home cooked food in a cosy down to earth atmosphere from the 70's. The portions were nice and the price was very reasonable. The polish platter was $10 for 2 peirogies, a cabbage roll, a polish sausage, sauerkraut and potatoes, and a Yuengling for $3.50. You can't go wrong, give it a shot 5 min from the border. Adios...

Although I regularly dine at gourmet restaurants in major cities, none can top the amazing meal I had in October for a family event at Gadowskis. The fresh kielbasa with warm rye bread and mustard still haunts me. I keep trying to recreate it but can't quite duplicate it. Even the salad dressing was memorable. Such a simple salad yet... More

Yes, another hidden gem in the Falls. The area is really a local foodie's delight and Gadawski's is no exception. Pierogis, homemade meatloaf, parsley potatoes, fresh, HOT soups--it is all excellent. Warm, friendly service and prices and decor that will make you think you've stepped back in time. A true family-run tavern that makes me proud to be from the... More

You've got to plan your trip to Niagra Falls/Buffalo area around this restaurant being open on Friday night for dinner! Walking in here is like going back to the 50's or 60's. Great tavern atmosphere in the bar and then traditional homey restaurant in the back. We started with drinks, sitting at the bar - we ordered a gin &... More
