The brunch event is set up like a banquet hall with round tables and white tablecloths. There is a wide selection of breakfast food, a chocolate fountain for the fruit selection and the typical selection of eggs, French toast and waffles. The hot food line serves various meats and vegetables that are tasty and fresh. Service is decent with a... More

This was my first time at the Birchwood . I had the polish platter the food was excellent. I didn't find the host to be very friendly. He sat down next to some people he knew and never got up again. The waitress was an older woman,she was very good. I will be going back, the food was excellent.

Have been here for lunch a few times since it reopened and was pleased but the buffet dinner last night to celebrate St. Patrick's Day was terrific. From the variety and quality of the food and the great price to the friendly, courteous service there was not a misstep all evening. The catering room looks better than ever and the... More

We had a catered event here 2 weeks ago and the food was even better than I remember. Danielle, the new owner, was beyond gracious and helpful with what we wanted and needed. We had a buffet with the typical Polish fare.. also with Italian dishes and American..something for everybody...everything was delicious. The renovated event room is bright and cheerful.... More

This was always a "go to" place for us. It re-opened in November with much of what was really good about the place years ago. There is a very friendly staff and the host/owner, Frank, made us feel very welcome. Pick your type of food: American, Italian or Polish...they are all represented well. Give it a try.

The Birchwood is back and the new owners, Frank and his daughter, Danielle, are very hands on and want to get to know their customers. If you haven't been in a while, or like me, had stopped going completely under former ownership, you really should give it another go. They kept the traditional Polish fare and added some of their...

Made plans with a group of friends to meet and greet. When we got there, found the place was closed for renovations. No signs. Telephone just rings and rings. Should have a message that they are temporarily closed.

I was unimpressed before they changed ownership - equally unimpressed after they changed ownership. It's a shame because it's a cute place and before this family took it over, the place was very good and welcoming with great value for the dollar. Now it's run like there's a need to pinch every penny and the customer is merely a dollar... More

Had a great lunch with four friends , much better than we were expecting . Very friendly staff who served excellent food at a good price . We all went for the traditional American burgers which were possibly the best I've tasted anywhere in the last few years . Would definitely visit again
