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

Used to go here a lot years ago and loved it. Went a couple of weeks ago for a fish fry and pierogi's and just as good as ever. Not as much business as usual but the atmosphere, service and food were great. We like dining in small family owned restaurants and love food that is homemade!

We choose to eat at this restaurant based on tripadvisor reviews which were all very good. Having visited Poland in 2006, I absolutely loved the food. I had the polish plate which was pretty good, but not so much like the real thing I ate in Poland. My friend had the fried fish platter. She said it was good. I... More

In a city with relatively limited good restaurant choices, this one is a nice find! Doesn't seem like much from the outside, but the food is quite good, and VERY reasonably priced. (Note: they don't take credit card, so I paid by cash.) There are a few items on the menu that are Polish, but the rest were just regular... More
