You can't go wrong with anything you order. You must try the beer, German imports, the best!!!! The Beet Salad is wonderful, the porgies are made on site and delicious. The desserts are all made on site and excellent. The service is great as well.

We always get the perogies and sausage plate and a salad to share. Their salads are always innovative and different. No boring chicken salads here! More like smoked fish with pickled beets and quork. It's good stuff.
