My husband and I went to lunch today (Sunday). Atmosphere is great. Wait staff was ok. Our waitress didn't know the vegetable of the day and didn't offer to check and see what it was, which was kinda weird to me, but oh well. I got perogies and my husband got paprikash. Both were great. Perogie were served with veggies... More

Great Slovenian atmosphere with décor consisting of dark wood walls and beams with stained glass windows, staff speaking in accent, live band, and dancing. My friend danced with the waitress. As far as the food, my friend and partner had one of the schnitzels. I went the less traditional route and got salmon although it still had a Slovenian flair... More

It was a really great experience. The food was delicious and the portions were more than enough. Everybody in our party of 8 had a to-go-box and was very satisfied. We had a great time and we might have had the best wait person in the building - Jemail. Extremely polite, knowledgeable and very friendly. He took care of our... More

We went on a Saturday night and enjoyed some great live polka music and several patrons were up and dancing. It was loud if you were intent on having dep conversations but otherwise quite fun. The beer, though home brewed, was nothing spectacular, and the food was average but comforting. Salads and desserts subpar but my expectations were low. Overall... More

The family style dinners offer a choice of meats and ethnic side dishes such as Slovenian Home Fries. Wide selection of brews on tap. Live entertainment and dancing make for a great evening.

We love this place. We always have fun here and love their food. The fish fry is to die for. I am very picky about fried fish and think this is one of the best fried fish dinners I have ever had. Go while you can.

Authentic European food and beer hall. Great for lunch or dinner! Great parking. Great European style draft beer. Had the chicken paprikash, amazing! Great sauce and the dumplings are to die for. You may even see some Polka when you are there.

We were visiting friends in the Cleveland area and had opportunity to visit this landmark restaurant. I was quite surprised on walking in. I didn't realize it would be so rustic and plain. The portions were large. I ordered the schnitzel which came with just an average salad and mashed potatoes and schnitzel. My husband and I each ordered a... More
