Great cooking ! They are excellent caterers. Have had their food on several occasions. Their specialty is a polish buffet with everything, but their menu is also extensive. The place is old. Has been there for many years and needs updated and refurbished. But that...More

Growing up in a polish family I enjoy eating polish food. The polish buffet is very good. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

Husband likes to eat here because he can go back for more. The food is okay. The restaurant itself could use a spruce up.

My brother wanted to try this place and the best way was to take advantage of their Friday night buffet special. Outside looks fresh, but once inside the door the check in/out area looks pretty disheveled. We stood for a couple of minutes before a...More
