Yes it's noisy because everyone is having such a great time. If your going for healthy food...then skip it. Great beer selection and pub food mixed with polish food.

So we decided to wander into Polish Town in old Riverhead NY. Talk about being thoroughly and pleasantly surprised. What a diverse menu. From Traditional Polish entree's and appetizers imported all the way from... More

What a delightful experience. stepping back in time to a traditional ethnic restaurant such as one used to find on the lower east side of New York City 20 or 30 years ago. The service was excellent... More

Last Sunday night a group of us from work were meeting at the Birchwood to celebrate a friend's birthday. I arrived first to secure the table and stood for about 10 minutes until a harried hostess finally saw me and seated me at a not so great table. When my party finally showed up, we asked to be moved to... More

The waitress looked right at me and did not approach nor even say she will be right with us. Then a man walked out looked at me and turned around... More
