“Our favorite Bohemian food restaurant in Chicagoland.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2012

My wife and I have eaten here many times. This is our favorite Bohemian food restaurant in Chicagoland. Our favorite used to be Golden Duck in Downers Grove but they unfortunately closed down a few years ago.

We have never had a bad meal here as the food is outstanding. All of their food is homemade. My favorite is their breaded pork tenderloin. Her favorite is Granny's pork. The food portions are huge.

Highly recommend.

“Wonderful experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2011

We drove a half hour to reach the Bohemian Crystal from downtown Chicago, and it was worth every bit of the drive! The food is very authentic, portions are huge (we had to bring food home with us), and the dinner entrees include soup, sides, and even dessert. The kolachi were delicious! The service was attentive without smothering, and the prices are very reasonable. We would love to bring my partner's parents (who are Czech), but it's a bit of a drive from Florida!

“Make it a Tradition.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2010

I have been making my dining at Bohemian Crystal a tradition for 34 years.
I love the food, the atmosphere, the authenic outfits that the servers wear, you can't beat the value, and the quality and quantity of food.
I insisted on celebrating my 60th birthday bash at the Bohemian Crystal. This restaurant
can accomodate just about any celebration.
I have tried other ethnic restaurants but you just can't beat this one.
The servings are plentiful, but save room for the dessert!!!
In all of the 34 yrs. coming here, I have never heard any complaints, and I can guarantee you won't be disappointed ordering anything on the menu.

“One of the best values in the Chicago...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2010

One of the best values in the Chicago suburbs. The pork tenderloin is the size of the plate and is so tender you can cut it with your fork. Most meals include sides, bread, and desert. The average age of the patrons may be 80 but they know value and great food.
