Good Polish food, probably the best you can get in a restaurant. Polish Village is long on food, short on decor. I think the food is almost as good (not quite, though) as that cooked by my Polish and Ukrainian grandmothers (may they RIP). This is the place to bring out-of -town guests who enjoy eating. No pretense here, just... More

We visited this place totally based on the reviews from Trip Advisor. Not disappointed and is recommended very much. Eat lunch and allow a couple hours for a nap afterward. The Polish plate is an assortment of pirogi, kielbasi, and staffed cabbage with kraut and mashed potato. It was $10.95...a bargain. we also had a side of potato pancakes which... More

A definite Must go to restaurant! The Polish Café is ALWAYS one of the restaurants I MUST visit each time I am back home in Michigan. It brings back so many wonderful memories of Polish cuisine when I was younger. :) I would rate this a 10! Yummy especially the Dill Pickle Soup! Can't wait to go back...

Got in a little late, sat at the bar. Wonderful selection of Eastern European liquors and beers. Food was very good. Ordered "city chicken" , actually pork and veal on a wooden skewer. The plate, when it arrived, was overflowing. Wonderful tastes and aromas. Meal comes with soup, mmmmm.

My wife and I visited Detroit and were told to stop here by my parents. The restaurant is in the basement of an old house. The food and atmosphere are great. I got the Polish Plate the only thing I would change with my meal is add another pierogi. The price was reasonable and the staff was friendly.

Our party of 6 had a short wait prior to being seated outside (I don't think they take reservations) on a very pleasant but busy Sunday evening. Service was pleasant and timely. The food was outstanding - it was like a 50 year flashback into my grandpa's kitchen (ya know how certain tastes and smells can take you to a... More

First off, this place is AUTHENTIC. Visiting from Texas, their menu read like foods from our (Polish) Granny's cookbook. Stuffed cabbage, pirogi's, beet soup, and the ever favorite pickle soup were delicious. Everyone tried something different and none of us were disappointed. Well worth the effort to get to this place if you're looking to have genuinely good Polish food.

Thought we would try out some polish food. Not bad.....but the whole building needs some serious cleaning. It might have been here for a long time, cleanliness is mandatory for a restaurant. ( P.S....CASH ONLY !!)

Had dinner on a Tuesday around 5:00 pm. Not very busy at this time which was great for us. Fast service and delicious food. My husband had the chicken livers (says some of the best he's ever had) and I had the Polish Platter. Very good prices but important to know that they only accept Cash and Checks NO CREDIT... More
