In this day and age, as more and more of the good Bohemian restaurants disappear, its good to see that the Crystal continues to survive. With its authentic Czech and Eastern European food, you get big portions for a fair price.

Four of us here for dinner recently and had a swell time. Excellent and very friendly waiter. Not fine dining at all - but solid comfort food, with very large portions. And extremely affordable. Highest price was $19.95 for a gigantic platter of food - a sampling of some of their most popular dishes. We all had plenty to eat... More

Three for lunch. Our first time. Ordered the lunch specials. Breaded pork tenderloin for me. Made to perfection. Great wait staff. Plenty of free parking. The restaurant was crowded! Delicious kolachki for dessert. A taste of Europe. Will return.

It is always a long haul for us to go here but believe me, it's worth it. Especially considering that several similar restaurants that were located around Berwyn are no longer there, what with a changing demographic. RIVERSIDE is really the only remaining decent Bohemian style restaurant, but overall, it falls just a little short of Bohemian Crystal, except for... More

Eating at Bohemian Crystal is like having dinner with your family with a bunch of other families. It is freezing in Chicago tonight. The restaurant is full of people eating food like I grew up with and talking. Few cell phones and lots of conversation and warmth.

There was a time when you could get great Czech food anywhere on 22nd in Berwyn. Now you have to go about 20 miles West but make the trip. I only want one thing at a Czech restaurant: duck, bread dumplings with gravy, and then sauerkraut or red cabbage. They also throw in homemade rye bread. We all had the... More

If you are Czech or familiar with this cuisine then you will love this place. Really it's just like my Czech grandmother's cooking. The dumplings were fluffy and perfect, roast pork melts in your mouth. However, some of our friends are not familiar with this and found it bland. But that is just the Czech way. I loved it. Kolachy... More

Had a recent large family lunch at Bohemian Crystal. It has been MANY, MANY years since I had Bohemian food. Our meal was family style which offers lots of food. The food was all very good. I particularly enjoyed the roast pork, roast duck, sauerkraut and dumplings. I was disappointed they didn't have liver dumpling soup the day we were... More

This is a very good bohemian restaurant. Three of us had the Pork Tenderloin and the fourth had the Bar B Q Ribs. Portions are large, all of us had to go containers. Very clean, fast and efficient service. Highly recommend for good comfort food.

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.
