Have been going here for years and am never disappointed. The food is delicious and the service is wonderful. I really enjoy their soups. My favorite is the dill pickle! For a great sample, try the "Polish Plate."

This is typically a dinner stop for me but stopped in yesterday for a light lunch with friends. The dill soup is a must have.

The food is homemade. Very tasty and seasoned to your liking. Recommend the restaurant for people who used to live in Hamtramck and of course people that want to experience the polish food.

I have visited this restaurant with friends quite a few times, and have always been impressed with the food! I usually get the garlic chicken or city chicken with the mashed potatoes, sauerkraut, and dill pickle soup. The soup has a great flavor and is...More

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.
