We are from out of town and are not Polish, but we wanted to try Polish food because we like to try local food whenever we travel. We found the Jolly Inn on TripAdvisor and decided to give it a try. Wow, it was amazing!...More

Sometimes really nice people make all the difference! We had a very good meal. It was fun trying all of the different dishes. Good food for the price.

Great Polish buffet! The food is authentic and tastes excellent! More than enough to choose from. The waitresses are wonderful! Don't worry, they speak English too. The only thing that would make eating here better, is a ice cream machine!

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.
