I ordered the stuffed cabbage. Best I've ever had. All the food looked great. Very busy the Saturday before Mother's Day, but staff was very efficient and everything moved smoothly. Parking was a bit of a challenge but well worth the trouble. Will definitely return...More

We ate there recently while on a trip into Cleveland. Initially I was surprised it was cafeteria style, but that only adds to the charm of the restaurant, and the comfort foods some of us grew up with. The food was delicious. I had the...More

I went into this with REALLY high expectations. So all I can say is I need to try this place again. Not sure if my appetite just wasn’t there or if I wasn’t in an indulgence mood, but I was underwhelmed with my first Sokolowski’s...More

If you like (or love) Polish food, go there. It is cafeteria style, but the wait in the line is worth it. There are sandwiches and hot food, but be sure to get the pierogies. They are just like I used to make with my...More

My college-aged son raved about this "Polish restaurant in Cleveland" after his friend from the area took him here. So when our family was in the area, we decided to give it a whirl. It was not fancy, but it certainly reminded me of my...More
