I’m not usually a fan of buffets but the Jolly Inn is next door to Galos Caves where I went for a session. Their buffet has probably the widest selection of food I’ve ever seen. Of what I’ve sampled the following were really very good:...More

Went to Jolly Inn after visiting Galos Caves (right next door - same building). I believe the Inn and Caves are owned by the same people. I think. Nevertheless, great Polish buffet - fantastic potato pancakes and pierogis. Starts off with complimentary soup and ends...More

Our favorite Polish buffet recently closed so we tried the Jolly Inn and were not disappointed. Hot, fresh food and great selection of items. Great service, reasonable price. We’ll definitely be back.

This all-you-can-eat Polish buffet is among our favorite places to stoke up on hearty comfort food at bargain prices. Though Jolly Inn offers a decent salad bar and a smattering of foods that are not deep-fried or awash in rich sauces, we go there to...More

When I went there, a friend paid, but the website says it is $9.95 during the week, and $11.95 on weekends. For the meal, I'd say it's a good deal.
