The restaurant is known for its traditional style dishes. Most people love the roasted duck although the pork dishes are also very good. Prices are very reasonable and the help is very authentic. A fun experience.

Always fun to join the family for Sunday dinner at a Bohemian restaurant. Enjoyed the roast pork, dumplings & sauerkraut followed by apricot kolachki. Svickova & the fruit dumplings were also a treat.

If you're looking for some home style cooking, this is the place. A no-frills, grandma's cooking serving roast loin of pork, bratwurst, schnitzel, dumplings, roast chicken, all served with mashed potato, lots of gravy, and canned vegetables. And for dessert, apple strudel, kolachy, or ice cream. At 4-5 pm, the place is packed, as it closes at 7 pm. This... More

If you have only one opportunity for a delicious meal when visiting the Western Suburbs of Chicago, you have to dine at the Bohemian Crystal. The food is the best, with all the Czech and Hungarian favorites. German and Polish items also on the menu.

We take my mother and father-in-law to this restaurant twice a year from Wisconsin. It is their favorite Czech place. The meals are delicious and the wait staff excellent. Some of our favorite foods are the breaded pork tenderloin, liver dumpling soup, Czech platter, sauerkraut and of course the kolackys. We always have enough left over to have for another... More

Bohemian Crystal remains our family "heritage" favorite and whenever we're in the Chicago area, we set a reservation. We always enjoy the dumplings, kolache, strudel, pork, red cabbage, etc.,This time, there were eight of us, each ordering a different item. We had great service, timing of preparation and not rushing of patrons makes this a very favorable dining experience.

I don't really known what they do well... Low prices maybe. Food is subpar. It's a shame since no other German option is available close by. Much better off going to Lisle for your German fix.
