Baba Ruski has reopened at a Hubbard Lake location. Eek. The blandest food imaginable. I don't think anyone at our table finished their meal.

Wanted to try Baba Ruski on our visit to the area but saw they are closed due to a fire. Looks like they will be down for a bit since there was quite a bit of damage. Maybe next year.

My husband got a pasty to go and it was really soft and squishy- not good. I'll assume other items they prepare are better.

Decent food at a fair price. Four in our party and everyone enjoyed their meal. Try their onion rings, I think they are the best I've ever had. The onion rings deserve 5 stars, but the rest of the meals were average.

We saw this place and thought we'd try the pasties, one of our favorite treats. They were frozen so we took them back to my parents for dinner. What a MAJOR disappointment. The crust wasn't right, they were dry, the filling was miniscule, and the flavor (if any) was poor. Maybe other items on their menu are okay, but the... More

We were headed north on US 23 when we saw the Baba-Ruski's sign advertising pasties. That happens to be one of our favorite comfort foods, so we got some to take with us to the motel. The friendly young lady who waited on me asked if I wanted my pasties hot and ready to eat, but I ordered five of... More

We have visited this restaurant several times. They have great homemade pizza and really great entrees. My husband enjoys the authentic Polish food and I think they have great sandwiches or fish dinners. The service may seem slower to some, but for those of us small town people we know that is because they are cooking it fresh and to... More

Great pasties and friendly service. Pasties were delicious with lots of gravy- you may want to ask for gravy on the side.
