I used to live (literally) across the alley from the Cavalier Inn. I've eaten there so many times and I've never had anything that tasted bad EVER ! They make traditional Polish food, which is excellent, and the lake perch is wonderful. Although the inside looks a little dated, it's a really cozy and friendly place to have a good... More

I read an article in The Times newspaper about this restaurant/bar and decided to treat a friend of mine for her birthday dinner. This establishment is located in Hammond in the older neighborhood and, from first appearances, looked like your "typical neighborhood bar". We entered to find a very friendly bartender who invited us to sit in the restaurant section... More

Old school polish food at its best. Also good lake perch. Old place with original owners. Could use a spruce up, but it's been a staple in the area for years.

If you want real Polish home cooking, try this restaurant. They make their own sauerkraut, Pirogies and polish sausage, all of which are wonderful. They also have a bar at the front of the restaurant. Their menu is small but it gives you a great selection to choose from.

I have been here several times over the years.Friendly old school place with very good homemade food. They start you with a relish tray and white bread. This is probably the only polish place that does not serve rye bread! Pierogi , fish , polish sausage and fried chicken all very good.Walk in and seat yourself and do it before... More

We attended a funeral lucheon at the Cavalier Inn. The selection of Polish food (sausage, both fresh and smoked, kraut, pierogis followed by fresh paczki for desert) was awesome as mentioned by other reviewers. All was good but the chicken which was on the greasy side. However, it was in the 90s outside and very hot and sticky inside as... More

How did Texans and Michiganites (Michiganians? Michiganers?) wind up at a Polish restaurant in Hammond, Indiana eating a "funeral platter"? The answer to this question is ancestry, timing, location, and the wonders of tripadvisor. Returning from a funeral in Wisconsin, we met up with friends here after finding its review on tripadvisor. Both my husband and his friend grew up... More
