Last-minute trip to Chicago and as usual we tried a new (to us) restaurant. Trip Advisor gave U Gazdy high marks and as it was close we gave it a shot. Our family is German/Bohemian and we've eaten at German/Bohemian/Chech/Polish restaurants all over Chicago and...wherever our travel takes us. U Gazdy is one of the best. We had the "Polish Plate" lunch special with the usual sausage pierogis cabbage roll and potato pancake, so much food, we should have ordered one and split it. Of note was the really good mushroom gravy. We'll be back.More

We ordered online for take out: Pierogi (comes with sour cream), Smoked Salmon, and Dinner-stuffed Cabbage (mushroom sauce and Soup of the day). All taste excellent. We ordered take out, because dining takes along time.

Being is Polish decent, we can be hard to impress when you say you serve Polish food, but this place was excellent. We had a large family dinner and they were wonderful in accommodating us. All of the food we were served (family style) was...delicious and the staff was friendly and on top of things. I would recommend this place to all.More

Our Polish friends wanted to try U Gazdy. It was over a half hour ride & well worth it. The one bad point was we had to wait 1/2 an hour past our reservation time. It's a small dining area & people were taking their...time. The way the hostess handled the delay was perfect. She apologized and bought are first round of drinks. After that the service was impeccable. The food was spectacular. I had the pork shank & everyone else had duck. A lot of food for very reasonasble prices. We will drive back.More

I was looking for something “different” for dinner on a Saturday night and the local German restaurant was packed. I found this place and we decided to try it out. It is a tiny place that we’ve probably passed many times. I think we were...the only ones in the restaurant speaking English, but that was a good sign! It has a lot of support from the local Polish community. Everything was delicious and authentic and the service was good. Due to a misunderstanding they brought my husband the wrong meal, but it looked mouthwatering so he decided to keep it and enjoyed every bite. Depending on when you go, you may need to make a reservation because it is a small restaurant and fills up quickly. They will even sing sto lat to you on your birthday! The wooden decor is lovely, too - feels like you are eating in a lodge.More

Old World Polish food just like my grandmother's (Babcia). Service was great and food was even better. We had duck and the pork shank, both were tender and juicy. Food is authentic and well seasoned.

Restaurant recommended by a friend, all I can say is absolutely delicious! The service was impeccable and the restaurant had an old world feeling. My duck was prepared exactly as it should, crispy skin and very tender! My BF had the mouthwatering rabbit, and it...was superb. Large portions, had to take home 1/2 our food and a reasonably priced menu. We will definitely be back very soon!More

Really good polish food and the ambience is great too. I had the Pork tenderloin escallops and he had the pork shank. Both were very authentic and melted in your mouth. I love this place and I'll go back for sure!
