Krzysiaks is right in our backyard. We run over there often on Fridays for the small walleye buffet. You can not make a meal at home like this for double the price. The variety is good and you don't leave hungry. The big buffet is a favorite in town but we just don't eat that much food. You have to... More

I throughly enjoyed the lunch buffet at The Krzysiak House when I was in Bay City this week. All of the items on the salad bar were fresh & delicious. On the hot buffet I believe the pierogies were home made and very tasty. The sauerkraut & polish sausage is a signature dish and very well appreciated. The service was... More

Thank you for taking time out of your day to visit us and to share your experience. You're right...our pierogies are homemade daily on premises along with our polish sausage. Our other hot and cold dishes, salads, soups, and desserts are all homemade as well. Come back and visit us again! More

Unfortunately, your visit seems out of line with the typical way we run our business. All managers are trained with appropriate strategies for food safety and management. This kind of behavior is not tolerated and is not something that I have ever seen. I am truly sorry for what you have perceived but please know we hold a high standard... More

We stumbled upon this place a few years ago and now make it a stop on our way to Northern Michigan quite frequently during the summer months. The Lunch Buffet is great and has a nice variety of Polish favorites that change daily...also, a great Salad Bar and Soups. They have a Buffet at Dinner too plus a menu if... More

from out of state, but i visit this restaurant every time I am in town. Love the noodle casserole on weekend breakfasts and the chicken and fish on the lunch and dinner buffet is very enjoyable.

A couple of years ago I came across this place by accident. At the time, they had a wonderful buffet that features authentic Polish food. The price is great during the week... and if I remember correctly, its around $9 per person. I went this past weekend with my family and I ordered the buffet again. It comes with honey... More

If you like Polish food you will like this place. Everyone was very nice and they have somethings you can even buy to take home to make.

My Dad and Step Mom stay in Bay City for the Summer months. They wanted dinner here. It was Friday so the buffet had fish, seafood, and meat. Our son ordered from the menu. The menu includes a lot of comfort foods, American, Mexican, bar food, and of course Polish options. The salad bar has garden and pasta salads. There... More

I grew up living with a Polish neighbor. I like the food I was introduced to. We chose the Buffet to get small bites of many things. I should have ordered something cooked to order. I would try again and I didn't leave hungry. The staff didn't seem happy to be there. They were nice enough but I just hope... More
