I love the location of this place, being right on a boardwalk overlooking the ocean. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is great! We came here with a group of people and had a memorable experience. And the best part, it's BYOB!!!

Great atmosphere by the boardwalk! Russian being spoken everywhere adds to the kitsch factor! Great Food! Had the best beef stroganoff I've ever had. Borscht was way decent as well. Service was very good

Located on the board walk just off Brighton beach, this restaurant serves primarily Russian food (Menu is first in Russian then English). We ordered a chicken caesar salad which was made with a kale type vegetable and not lettuce, tasted great... The eatery is in...More
