We dined here with my parents, who are frequent visitors. When I walked in I thought it looked like an old people's restaurant and wondered if the food would be worth the visit. Well, don't judge by appearances! This place serves excellent duck, dumplings, goulash ... everything we had was wonderful! The duck was moist and tender with a nice crispy skin. The goulash had a delicious earthiness. The service was prompt, courteous and knowledgeable. Even the few wines were decent. This is a terrific restaurant. Be warned, though, they don't take credit cards.

Beyond excellent service, given with good humor and knowledge of the entire menu, as well as fabulous home cooked, Eastern European food!
We enjoyed the Pierogies appetizer, Liver Dumpling Soup, Beef Tongue in Horseradish Gravy, Roast Duck, Breaded Pork Tenderloin and Svickova, Sauerkraut and Dumplings with ample Gravy. We even had dessert, Apple Strudel! Definitely a big change in diet for us, but we need to experience change once in awhile! Highly recommended at least once in your lifetime, our friends go every other week! CASH ONLY, reservations accepted.

The food here was excellent, the goulash is worth the trip to this traditional Bohemian place. The only draw back is they only take cash, no credit cards. Atmosphere is very rustic, but food was again great.

This place looks unimpressive from the outside, but after you have enjoyed the great food and service you will be back. The menu is not huge but the selections are varied and tasty, I personally can recommend the bread pork tenderloin, with dill gravy the ribs and the chicken Parisian. One of the other members of our group had duck and was impressed with how it was prepared. We had three people in our party and our diner with included home made soup , house baked Rye bread and beverages was only $45.00. None of the entries were over $16.00 yet the portions were large and well prepared. A couple of things to keep in mind, they are CASH Only, and there hours are limited. They are closed on Monday, open Tuesday though Friday from 11:00 to 7:00pm and on Saturday and Sunday 11:00am to 8:00pm. I highly recommend this restaurant you will not be disappointed
