Great atmosphere and food. Lots of traditional polish food and a mix of American dishes. The bar is also nice to catch up with friends. The service is ok.

Very pretty restaurant with private room for family and friends. Food was good with many choices. Kielbasa and pierogi a must for Polish Town. Very limited wine selection. Easily accessible to Hyatt Place hotel and downtown.

High expectations after being told great food at this restaurant. Very disappointed in the buffet served at a bridal shower. Limited options, and the pepper steak was more onions with few peppers and hardly any meat. The only save was the swedish meatballs.
