Pork shank is big portion. Dark polish beer is 8%. Décor is similar to that found in the back woods of the Tatra mountains shared by Slovakia. Giant white pine slabs cut on no longer found circular saws compose the table tops. Basswood floors. Heavy deer hoof-shaped potato dumplings with dill weed in the white mushroom sauce. Staff speaks Polish.... More

Wow, our first time here, and it was like going to Poland without traveling! Not only is it a log cabin inside and out, but everyone, and I mean EVERYONE, in the place was Polish, and speaking Polish, not just the staff. We were amazed. We're Polish too. The menu had a great selection and it took us a while... More

This is a great example of not only Polish food, but of Highlander Polish food. The place does get busy, so a reservation is recommended. The food can also get pricy, but I highly recommend this place: delicious food, good service and authentic Polish food.

The atmosphere here is so cozy and cute. Log cabin style. The service is good too. But the food is delicious. We are not polish, so we are not familiar with all the ethic food here but everything we tried was so good. I had the potato pancakes with the pork stew. Huge portions. My husband had the pork shank.... More

I was the only one in the restaurant who was not fluent in Polish.The wait staff spoke excellent English. Had Ukrainian borscht to start followed by very generous sized potato pancake with goulash inside and outside. Absolutely delicious! Many other authentic choices available. I was too full to consider dessert. Service was unobtrusive but adequate.Highly recommended.

I wanted to try this place so we went around 4:30 on a Sunday afternoon for an early dinner. The place was packed and we had no reservation so we waited 10 minutes or so before being seated at the bar - the wait for a table was far longer. The server at the bar was friendly and right away... More

My parents are of Polish decent, so we chose this place to celebrate their anniversary based on reviews. The restaurant decor is very inviting. The meals, prepared more like dishes from southern Poland were a little different than what we are used to, but the food was very good and the portions were large. The service was a little slow,...

From great friendly service to authentic polish delicious food, we couldn't have asked for a better dinner. My absolute favorite are of course pierogi, but my husband got a great dish of Hungarian stew on a potato pancake which was great as well. Overall great ambiance and tasty food! Definitely recommend!
