Went for supper with some of my family that live in Waterford. Wait time for a Saturday night wasn't too bad (about 20 minutes) Two people in the party had the pickerel and both thought it was great. Two others had different pasta dishes and both of them were pleased too. Food was freshly prepared and hot. Proportions are generous.

I always enjoy the food and service. On Friday usually get fish once you have the salad and breadsticks and your fish and side comes it is plenty.

Their lasagna is awesome and the Polish platter is fantastic. Pizza is good too. Ooh and let's not forget their fall drink list. Wow! That in itself is worth the visit.

We stopped with family for pizza. Free popcorn "appetizer" They have "alibi" thin crust and also deep dish. We went with the thin crust. It was very good. The ingredients were fresh. We were very satisfied. Our server Maddie was great. Attentive, accurate and helpful. The menu is a little strange for the type of restaurant. Escargot? We didn't try... More
