Found this place on tripadvisor with high marks. It was halfway from where we were going so planned a lunch stop. It wasn't very crowded when we got there around 11 am. The waitress was very friendly and the meal I and my wife had was very good. The coffee was outstanding considering the size of the place. I would... More

We ate there for lunch. The service was slow and the food was not as good as what we had heard. Haven't been back since

Nice, cozy place. We visited 3 times during our stay. Friday fish fry was great. If you go to the Sunday Pig Roast, go early. We went later in the day & the meat was just about gone. Pig Roastt was just OK. Monday night All you can eat Rib Eye was pretty good.

We were pleasantly surprised with the food. I wasn't expecting much from a museum cafe. But everything was really good and seemed to be cooked to order. You order at the counter and they bring out your food to your table. The employees were all very nice. Everything was clean, including the restrooms. We ordered two hamburgers with fries, a... More

We drove from Oshkosh to western Wisconsin yesterday for a wedding. Our stop for lunch was at this great cafe. This is really a treasure in an area that some would say is in "the middle of nowhere." It is easy to find right on hwy 21. Our lunch was splendid and being in a bit of a hurry the... More

Wow! What a treat to have something different for a change! We ordered 3 Polish dishes: pierogies, stuffed cabbage, and lazanki each more delicious than the last! Portion sizes were very generous. My boyfriend was crazy about the Polish sausage, and sad to see they were out of it in the attached Polish deli(also awesome). Our waitress was friendly and... More

We ordered 3 different types of pierogis and we were not disappointed. They were fried up with butter and onions and bacon. The restaurant was clean and offered breakfast lunch and dinner.... More

The actual name of this restaurant is not but rather .It is connected to the JB Country Store. This is a very unique restaurant and experience. The restaurant was quite decorative with a few different booth options and decorative mirrors. The prices were good! The waitress was very friendly. There are Polish options on the menu, however the majority of... More

A few years ago, I visited Krakow, Poland with my mother. We fell in love with the culture and the food. Coming back to Wisconsin, we thought there was a chance to find good Polish food but we never expected to find a place such as this. This restaurant is attached to the Citgo gas station and definitely is not... More
