The food is well prepared. The owners a little excenric and sometimes need to pay attention to the chefs attire. Delightful people. They do pay attention to you . Worth visiting and sampling the food.

We stopped in for lunch and had the special ... salad bar, stuffed pepper, perogies, sausage and sauerkraut. What an amazing meal. People across from us ordered a pizza and it looked so good. Family run restaurant, very quaint, will definitely go back.

The food is decent, the service is OK, the atmosphere is old and definitely not fancy. The portion sizes were great and this time we were there with a really large group and they had no problem accommodating us, even with a special limited menu.
