We have a place in Prague and my in-laws are Czech. Let's say I've had a lot of dumplings in my life but these are the fluffiest and lightest I've ever had! Spartan surroundings and lace curtains reminded me of many local places we've been...More

.Went to McCook for duck. It has changed. Prices are higher. The duck was satisfactory. I was disappointed in two things: no apple strudel again!! and Pilsener Beer was $19.00 a pitcher. The server was nice and attentive. Seating is readily available.

Excellent home cooked meals at absolutely decent price. The food tasted like we were in Prague or in Karlovy-Vary, back in the Czech Rep, only the meal size was way bigger. The menu had items of the Czech, Hungarian, and German/Austrian kitchen.

Generous portions of stick-to-the-ribs Bohemian staples, i. e. Roast Duck, Breaded Pork, etc. were well prepared. Service was friendly and efficient. My issue is the vibe. The entrance takes you through a very large bar area. The locals at the bar usually turn around on...More

Excellent ethnic dining. The dumplings are to die for....highly recommend. This is a family run establishment and the food shows that. It is like home made just for you. The desserts are great also...if you have room for dessert than is.

Second visit while in Chicago area. The breaded pork tenderloin was hot and fresh and enough for two to share. The dumplings and cabbage were a great accompaniment! Amazing goulash soup to start and the Apple strudel finish left this girl happy and satisfied!

We have never gone to this Bohemian restaurant before and we thought we would give it a try. It is hard to find a good Bohemian restaurant. This is my second favorite Bohemian restaurant! The atmosphere isn't fancy. When you first enter the establishment, you...More

The place is clean however dated. The goulash was more tender beef chunks in brown gravy with bread slices... Which I was told are dumplings. The menu is full of comfort dishes and prices are reasonable portions are generous.
