They have good shrimp and perch, but beware, when they run out of perch, they use a perch-like substitute. The potato pancakes are delicious. The Pierogis are ok. I love the kidney beans salad

Our family had dinner there last Thursday and we won't be going back there anymore. They used to have they best stuffed cabbages and fried lake perch but this last visit, all our food was terrible. I asked about the cook and found out the cook whose food was delicious, she moved to Poland. We are all greatly disappointed. When... More

Great place! Not fancy inside but comfortable. We tried the Polish beer on tap, excellent! Both the owners and our server were so very friendly. My husband had the Polish platter and everything on it was wonderful. The potato pancakes tasted just like the ones my grandma used to fry up in her kitchen. I had the perch and frog... More

The atmosphere is old school but we don't mind that because the food is so delicious! Eating here is like a flashback to the food my Polish mother in law made over the years. And the pricing is very reasonable.

I used to live (literally) across the alley from the Cavalier Inn. I've eaten there so many times and I've never had anything that tasted bad EVER ! They make traditional Polish food, which is excellent, and the lake perch is wonderful. Although the inside looks a little dated, it's a really cozy and friendly place to have a good... More

I read an article in The Times newspaper about this restaurant/bar and decided to treat a friend of mine for her birthday dinner. This establishment is located in Hammond in the older neighborhood and, from first appearances, looked like your "typical neighborhood bar". We entered to find a very friendly bartender who invited us to sit in the restaurant section... More

Old school polish food at its best. Also good lake perch. Old place with original owners. Could use a spruce up, but it's been a staple in the area for years.

If you want real Polish home cooking, try this restaurant. They make their own sauerkraut, Pirogies and polish sausage, all of which are wonderful. They also have a bar at the front of the restaurant. Their menu is small but it gives you a great selection to choose from.
