We called to make a reservation and were told they weren't taking reservations. We went early in the day 4:00ish. When we got there we were told it was an hour wait without a reservation. We asked if we could do a take-out order which...they didn't seem to want to take. After waiting quite a while with no attention, we decided to leave. We had explained to the wait staff what had happened on the phone but they didn't seem to care. We have been going to this restaurant for years and have never been treated this way. We will never, ever go back after the rudest behavior we ever received at a restaurant.More

Dined outside on nicely landscaped patio. Tables spread out, umbrellas at most or shaded by trees. Excellent service and good food at reasonable prices. Interior had old world charm. We will return!

Annually, my grand daughter have a date. We eat dinner at a restaurant of her choosing and the attend a Hilberry production of a Shakespearean play. Last year Alyssa decided she wanted to taste a pirogi. We had a wonderful dinner at the Polish Village...Cafe. Alyssa got her pirogi dinner and I enjoyed breaded pork chops. The experience was especially enjoyable because of the Hamtramck basement site which is "right our of Poland." I recounted to my granddaughter, how when I was a kid , ethnic neighborhoods and concomitant restaurants were everywhere and this was a perfect example of what I experienced and remember so well. I was glad to be able to share with her and now with you.More

Excellent Polish food at great prices. The service was wonderful, the atmosphere felt as if we were in Krakow with the staff conversing with the kitchen in Polish. Potato pancakes, galumki, Goulash, keilbasa, zoupa, all delicious.

A group of 6 of us went out for lunch on a Monday. We didn't have to wait for a table. I got the polish sampler and it was really good. I love the dill pickle soup too. I think the Polish food here is...the best in the area, but I think they raised prices recently? My coworkers and I compared menus and we saw 3 different sets of prices. Service was fast and friendly. They accept cash and paypal, no credit cards. There is no ATM on site. Looking forward to returning soon.More

Stopped in for the first time on a Saturday after a meeting in the area on the recommendation of a family member. I couldn’t decide what to get so I ordered the Polish Plate. It has a little bit of everything. I tried Dill Pickle...soup for the first time, and really liked it. The stuffed cabbage, kielbasa & kraut, and pierogi were delicious. While the food was very good, service was a little slow. I’ll definitely come back again.More

Food was all anticlimactic, for a bustling place we came in with high expectations. But when it came to eating the food lacked flavour and items were over fried. Wouldn’t be rushing back any time soon

Their food is great, the place is always crowded and loud. You can’t sit without bumping into the person behind you.

OMG--if you like Polish food this is a go to destination. Housed in the basement of what looks to be an old home you will find the most incredible food. We have been there many times and everything on the menu will not disappoint. Depending...when you visit you should be prepared to wait. It is small and worth the wait. Cash only. Mike GMore

I am not sure if they take reservations. I was told there was more seating upstairs, but they were lined up outside the door the whole time we were there and there was a long wait. Sorry I couldn't be more help.
