Hadn't been to Sarna's for awhile. Tired their pierogis and Kramarczuk's Polish. If it really was from Kramarczuk's it wasn't the coarse ground, thick kielbasa most of us Polish Americans travel there for. The horseradish that came with it was the "horsey" sauce you get...from Subway, not the ground horseradish and pickled beets expected. My Irish wife might have liked the chunk of over cooked cabbage but I would have expected some kapusta, or at least sauerkraut. The pierogis were good but overwhelmed the thinly cut pieces of Johnsville-stype Polish. Maybe Sarna's needs to move back across the city border into actual Nordeast to get their culture back.More

This grill has been a neighborhood staple for years. When we went, they had recently reopened after the COVID shutdown. Staff were wearing masks & we opted to sit outside on the patio. Unfortunately, the noise of the traffic was pretty loud. Our waitress was...friendly. Our food came in moderate time and was served warm. The entrees were good, but nothing amazing. Chocolate cake was rich and served in large portion!More

Sarna's is a gem in Columbia Heights. Very good food at reasonable prices. It's not cheap; but nor is it expensive. They're barbecue ribs are excellent! I have have been there more than 15 times over the years and yet to be disappointed.

It is a sports bar which we usually avoid but had heard good comments. Food and service were great and at a reasonable price but if you have hearing difficulty it is not the place for you. Can't have a conversation.

Went here on a Saturday night around 9:30 PM, the place was dead there was one whole section where the lights were off because it had no one sitting in it. A positive thing was our waitress was very nice and attentive, and they had...Surly on tap. I can't speak for their main meals as we ordered just appetizers and drinks. I ordered the cheese curds which were $10.99, and my husband ordered the buffalo wings which were about $14. (Pretty pricey appetizers for the atmosphere of the restaurant) My husband enjoyed his wings, although as buffalo wings they didn't have very much sauce at all. Unfortunately I have nothing good to say about my cheese curds. The portion was small for the price, half of the cheese curds have the cheese coming out of them, they were not as soft as they could've been, and they, no joke, tasted exactly like the A&W ones on Central, well I say exactly to be honest they weren't even as good as A&W's are soft. This is something I did not expect for the price. For the price I expected something similar to a state fair cheese curd, and this was just your standard fast food cheese curds for double the price. I'm not impressed and combined with the fact that it was dead on a Saturday night we won't be returning.More

I should probably give 5 stars.... it's super close! Great variety and good pricing make it perfect for lunch or dinner. When in the area , we're always wondering where to stop.... 3/4 of the time this is where we end up!

We were in the area to watch our granddaughter in a parade, so we thought we would try this place for dinner. I had the Pierogis and Polish Sausage, and it was very good, especially the cabbage with bacon bits that came with this dish....My wife had the pork tenderloin, which also was good. There were so many choices on the menu, it was difficult to decide what to order. They have the standard fare of steak, ribs, prime rib, plus walleye, but they also include items like walleye tacos and spaghetti. It is a great local place with good food and good choices, if you want an adult beverage.More

The three of us had the brunch and it was full of wonderful selections. Some very good fresh fruit and quite a few healthy options to go along with the usual breakfast fare. Be sure to order the cinnamon roll since it comes with the...brunch and it’s unbelievably goodMore

We stopped in around noon and found out they were serving a brunch buffet so we ordered this. This was a hard decision because the menu items looked so good! But, we agreed on brunch and there were so many options from fresh fruit to...shrimp cocktail to different meats and potatoes. My only complaint is that it was spendy at $20 a person. But, overall great menu and buffet choices.More
