Husband likes to eat here because he can go back for more. The food is okay. The restaurant itself could use a spruce up.

We had a discount coupon so decided to try the Skillet. Had been there as a young adult. Inside looked the same. Now it is a buffet. We had the choice of lunch or breakfast. Many Polish items to choose from. Good noodles, sweet-sour cabbage. They were almost out of chicken. Potatoes were boxed and salty. However, there were other... More

Went here once last Xmas, and the year before on Turkeyday. Just don't like sitting next to a bunch of strangers, most over 75. Food was like Polish wedding reception food, except no open bar to help it any. I never understood the pull of this place.My Father, who was 86 at the time, didn't think much of it either.... More

I read about them having a "Seafood Buffet" on Fridays and we just happened to be there for a wedding dinner on a Friday. I am from Florida so I knew I shouldn't have expected much. The fried fish was good, dont get me wrong, but it isnt the kind of seafood buffet I was expecting. They had three fried... More

Cuisine is known as "Polish Wedding." Sausage, several types of chicken (all very good), noodles, mashed potatoes, kraut, etc. The friendly, down home service is what truly separates this place from most. Your business is truly appreciated. If you want to engage or get to know the long-time staff, they are happy to talk with you if they aren't super... More

My brother wanted to try this place and the best way was to take advantage of their Friday night buffet special. Outside looks fresh, but once inside the door the check in/out area looks pretty disheveled. We stood for a couple of minutes before a kid came around the corner and was about to seat us when a customer with... More

This is a place that specializes in Comfort Ethnic food. They're only open Fri., Sat., and Sunday but have a Polish buffet at all times. Additionally, on Fridays they typically have a seafood buffet, Sunday and Saturday a brunch buffet including strawberry and banana crepes, made to order omelets, lovely CRISP bacon, AND at other times they include other ethnic...
