Went to this place on recommendation of a friend. Location not great, very small parking lot for several stores, no parking available when we arrived at 3pm, had to park a few blocks away on the street. Since we arrived definitely not during typical meal hours (we were there 3-5pm), we were surprised the restaurant was about half full. Very... More

The couple running Polka were friendly and enthusiastic about Polish food. When it became possible, they moved back to Poland leaving a younger relative the restaurant. Sad to say but he suffered a series of problems and Polka was closed for more than three years. Thankfully it is open again with a fresh remodel and the same Polish recipes everyone... More

A small but cozy place. The servers were friendly but what's good in this place is their food! Authentic and delicious! We asked what they recommend for first time visitors and they say it's the number 11! krolewski! The royal platter. It's a combination of 3 special entrees. It was so good and worth it of its price! I recommend... More

Everything on the menu is fantastic….I've tried them all. A complete meal with soup and salad included. Very tasty and delicious. Each meal just made me return to try another dish.

Had wanted to try this place for years after seeing it highlighted on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives on TV. It was much more than I expected. Cute European style café, very clean and the food was delicious. Each plate is made fresh to order, relaxed atmosphere, the presentation is very appealing and portions are substantial. We went for lunch and... More

This was our 4th or 5th trip to Polka - a must anytime we are in the area. Most dinners come with a soup and salad. The soup tonight was a tomato that was sooooo good. We tried their Klopsy for the first time and love it! It is a meat cake with ground beef and pork and a delicious... More

Read about this place and when in the area, had a wonderful lunch there. I could have been in Krakow! Lovely owner who made the dining experience authentic and very gracious. Something out of the ordinary. Please try it- Polish food is delicious.
