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

My husband and I enjoyed dinner in this quaint restaurant. Ate an early dinner so we were seated right away. He really enjoyed the cabbage soup while I had the mushroom soup. Large pieces of mushrooms and vegetables made it very tasty. The kielbasa was very good as was the pierogi and kraut. The schnitzel was not what I expected... More

We both got the sampler plate. I also tried the keilbasa soup. Wow. In florida we don't get good Polish food so I have waited years to get the real thing. Everything was excellent. The soup was the best. Loved the smell as soon as you walked in..it smelled just like when I was a kid, came home from school.....and... More

Polish Village is a trip back in time to the tastes of my childhood. It’s about as comfortable as it gets with delicious “city stew”, potato pancakes, piroge, stuffed cabbage…and it goes on. The venue itself is charming, down a flight of steps to a dining room out of another time and place. Service is very good and very friendly... More

The schnitzel is to die for. Thanks to the owners of The Polish Art Center for telling us about this place. The staff was very nice. Great setting!

Referred to me by a co-worker who grew up in the neighborhood in the early 60s. So glad I came. Authentic everything and timeless.
