We found this gem in 2014. We had thought it was just a motel, then one day when driving around, we saw it said restaurant. We went in and was pleasantly surprized with the outstanding Polish entrées that are all homemade. The owners both work there and are super nice. We go back a couple times each year. We own... More

We had a great meal at this fine dining restaurant. It is run by a very friendly Polish couple. There were many choices of wine and beer. We both had a very good meal from their Polish section of their menu then shared a dessert. The only negative comment I have is that their parking lot leading to the restaurant... More

Excellent Polish Food. I had the potato pancakes with savory beef. The beef was tender and the pancake just the right texture. Accompanied with a nice Polish beer.

Teresa and Mark treat you like family. This is our third/fourth time here and we now get hugs. The rooms are clean and the food is great, especially the perogies and the potato pancake with stew. There are wonderful places to walk (falls, views, trails) within a 3 minute drive.

Outstanding Motel. Clean, modern, comfortable with all that you needed. Very friendly and in a good position with easy access to WaWa. We were not that impressed with breakfast but it was adequate and the service was quick.

Home made, freshly made, and great tasting. I love the stuff cabbages. On site owners, Original Polish food. Do not expect to get your food right away. It is prepared for you when you are there and comes out fresh and delicious. If you are in a hurry go to a fast food restaurant. If you want authentic Polish food... More

We stayed across the room but come here for dinner. The range wasn't vast but what we settled on was well cooked and served in good time. The owners were friendly and made us feel welcome right from the start. If you like Polish food they do a fair share here.

Very clean and well kept. The rooms were cozy and quiet. A little more money than I would expect but you pay for personal service. Restaurant was very good but expensive. Again you get high quality food. More of a couples restaurant than for families.
