The City Chicken Rocks – I don't understand the bad reviews. I make way to Polish Village often, I was just there last week and the stuffed peppers were better then my Mom's. I love everything about Pol Village from the tiny basement that looks like my Grandma's did 20 years ago to the Polish speaking waitresses. The city chicken and dill pickle soup are amazing and the peirogi and potato pancakes are wonderful too. I don't care for the globacki (stuffed cabbage) or the Kraut here, but there are other wonderful dishes! Pol Village isn't Krakow, but it's pretty close.
Worst Service, Cold Food – If that's your specialty, this is the place to be. Everything was cold, except the pop. That was warm, apparently their ice machine broke on the day I was in there. Meatballs were cold, service terrible. Waitress looked hung over, and very very rude. Maybe they should try their hand at modeling instead of customer service and serving people.
Never again!!! – I have never had worse service in my life. I gave this place three chances and each time a different waitress was more rude and less intelligent than I could imagine. The food took forever, and not because it was coming out of the kitchen, it just sat on the counter until they decided we should eat. Then after asking for water it was another 10 min... Not to mention they drop the check on the table right after you order your meal, forgetting they have a dessert menu... Lastly, the food was horrible.
Good Polish food, outstanding value and service – I moved to Hamtramck from Farmington Hills in 1973 and regularly sample all of the Polish restaurants in town. They are all great places to visit and dine. Each restaurant has developed some loyal patrons who swear their place is the best. Polish Village is the Hamtramck equivalent of "Cheers" with its cozy down under the street dining room and wall length bar. One sign of a great place to eat is how busy they are and you will probably wait for a table here so be prepared. Just remember it will be worth the wait and if you like Polish beer be sure to try the Okocim on tap. The other thing to note is that although all of these restaurants feature a basic Polish menu each one also has several Polish specialties. I prefer the way the potato pancakes are made at the Village and their fresh apple nalesniki (apple crepes) are really special for desert.
Award winning soups! – The soups are one of my favorite things about this fine, European gem. The chicken is made true to the old fashion Polish Recipe, very thin but with heavy chicken flavor, strained of the actually chicken. And the noodles are unexplainable. I go there and leave with a quart of each :)
Nastiest restaurant I have EVER encountered – The soup...save your money--you might as well take a chicken boullion cube and stick it in water and call it soup (that is pretty much what it is). I tried a couple of the soups and they were nasty. The dill pickle soup was especially sick. The waitresses were terrible, rude, and dirty. The prices were nothing special and personally, the portions were smaller than at Under the Eagle. The pierogi--ha! You might as well go to Sam's Club's frozen foods section if you think these are tasty. There was hardly any filling, they were burnt, and not tasty AT ALL. If you want real Polish food go to Under the Eagle or even Polonia if you have to. STAY AWAY from this place. You will need Raphacholin C or PeptoBismal after eating this garbage.
Carolyne!! Owner of Polish Village Cafe!!! – You said your friend about your reviews. I know your friend and I know you. What you wrote about POLONIA- it's not true! You know- I'm right! Waitresess are nice there and friendly. There is really good food. You are the business owner and you wrote 30 reviews on this one page?Why? I know- you need new customers, everybody need new customers. Every business. I got jewerly store. I understand you, but it's not fair. I know a lot about your restaurant and a lot of Polonia, I know also a lot about Under the Eagle. I live in Hamtramck. Ooo!! One more think- you have lower prices. No Polonia. I hope you understand me. And be fair! Have a nice Memorial Day!
Patricia, your wrong in many ways – Carolyn does not OWN Polish Village. She works there as a manager. Number 2: Polonia Lowered all their prices, go look. They are all lower then Polish Village. And they have a flyer that states "We now have the lowest prices in town". Number 3: In my opinion, Polish Village has the best tasting and freshest Polish Food in town.
And Monica, let me clear this up. If there was a dog under one table, and a pork chop under the other, wouldn't that dog eat the pork chop???? That makes no sense. Also, if there did happen to be a dog in the restaurant, I'm sure it was a seeing eye dog, or one to help disability people. The law states that disability and helper dogs must be allowed in all business. Blind people have to eat too, geesh...
it's not authentic polish food!!! – It's disgusting. A lot of food, but cheap food... $ 4.65 per dinner. It's somethink wrong with the food. you can't buy good ingredients for this price.... Think about this...
