Decided to stop for lunch today at Rumak restaurant. The food was authentic Polish cuisine. It was fantastic and very filling. The prices were more than reasonable. (Lunch and a beer under 20.00) Would highly recommend.

Being Polish myself I've never had the bar food as the borscht ( red and white) and perogies are so good. Service was very good too it would have got a 5 star but I do find it a wee bit pricey.

I was pleased form the start with the options offered on the menu. From the soup to the hungarian pancakes, cabbage rolls, pierogies, and burgers, all were exceptional. It is not easy to find this type of food at this level of authentic quality. Kudos to the kitchen for doing it right. The service was fine with friendly staff and... More

I have had the wings here many times and always came away happy. The kitchen staff is the same, and cooking awesome food, but the bar staff seems to change frequently and its an area that needs addressed. I went in alone on a Wednesday to get the wings and sat at the end of the bar while the two... More

We went as a group to this restaurant where we pre-ordered a family style meal due to the amount of people we had in our party. Firstly we received Boersch Soup (totally amazing as I have never had it before), salad, mashed potatoes, pieroges, cabbage rolls and then pork cutlet. The family style meal was hot and very, very enjoyable.... More

We tried this restaurant for the first time and we were pleasantly surprised. Everything is reasonably priced and the food was fresh. We had salads and burgers. The Rumak Royale was an 8 oz patty of ground pork topped with small bacon cubes for $10.95. It comes with salad or fries. The fresh cut fries were excellent! The salad was... More

I went for the first time back in the fall and my date ordered chicken wings in which every wing had a hair in it. We showed the server and she took it off our bill and my date shared my entrée. We went back two weeks ago and there was hair in his chicken wings again. Needless to say,... More

Friend and I went here as I heard they had good cabbage rolls and pierogis. My friend went with the Pierogis ($11.95) which came and she enjoyed. I went with the Rumak Platter which was two cabbage rolls, five Pierogis and a side salad ($15.95). I donated my salad to my friend. My meal was good although I was disappointed... More
