Arrived on Friday at 7PM to find the large restaurant nearly empty. Two larger groups and three smaller tables of customers in the dining room. This evening only serving a pre-fixed family style dinner ($24.00 per person) of pickle/pretzel appetizer, barley/mushroom soup, salad, Wiener Schnitzel, Sausage, grilled Brussel sprouts, dumplings, potato wedges. While we hesitated for a moment to stay,... More

Best Peirogi in a long time. We googled Diner's, drive ins and Dives and found that Guy Fieri had done an episode on this restaurant. Polka music every day and live music. My husband is half Croatian and had a beer from his grandfather home town.

My wife and I celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary with a party for 35 people at Sterle's in February, 2017. Guests ages ranged from an eight year old to senior citizens. Sterle's had just reopened after renovations...with a new chef and, I imagine many new waitresses - so I guess we were "Guinea pigs". Our party went well. The staff... More

After reading the last several reviews, I was dreading my visit to Sterle's. When we arrived at 3:00 pm on a Sunday, the place was deserted. One group in the party section and two tables in the main restaurant. Our waitress was attentive right away, brought drinks immediately, offered suggestions for appetizers, left us alone when we said that we... More

We have been to the Slovenian House many times in the past. This past Saturday ended up very disappointing. We had a family gathering of 12 and ordered the "family style". The food was cold and late coming out. Had to ask for plates to serve ourselves. Had to ask for bread. Then served at end of meal. Ordered another... More

We truly enjoy authentic Slovenian food - we've been there and know what it is supposed to be. This is not. One reviewer said you will love or hate this place -- that reviewer was right on! We didn't love it. Our server was friendly and offered suggestions. We ordered the chicken soup, based on her recommendation. It was cold... More

My previous visit to this restaurant was about 10 years ago. I remembered it being a very good experience, so I was looking forward to another visit. I was very disappointed. We had a group of 18 and the entire group ordered the family style option. The best thing I can say about the experience is that they had a... More

The food was cold, the wait was very long, the place was dirty the service was horrible and the people were rude. I would never go here again and I would recommend you going elsewhere before stepping into this establishment. I overpaid for this horrible food and regret eating there!!

It has been a few years since I was at Sterle's and was looking forward to lunch with co-workers. We arrived at 11:30, since I remember the place filled up quickly, an was immediately seated and the only party in the restaurant. The server came over quickly to get drink orders, but we only wanted water--she gave us a few... More

This is the real thing, genuine authentic Slovenian food is a sweet ethnic interior. Great service by a staff who really care. Low prices, so you get a lot for your money. But the problem is that the food is not very good, nothing special, boring, not great quality.
