I'm always amazed and the staff and how quick they are able to serve everyone. The only draw back is that there is no place to wait for tables without being in everyone's way. But then again I think that's part of the of experience.

If you want a taste of Detroit ethnic tradition, this is the place. Polish beer on tap, fresh soups (beet soup is outstanding), stuffed cabbage, kielbasa, pierogis, you name it. A place to live it up and enjoy the flavors, not to count calories. Typical...More

We moved to this restaurant as the Eagles was too crowded for our group. The food was good and the friendly service was quick to deliver our lunch.

I am not sure if they take reservations. I was told there was more seating upstairs, but they were lined up outside the door the whole time we were there and there was a long wait. Sorry I couldn't be more help.
