We moved to this restaurant as the Eagles was too crowded for our group. The food was good and the friendly service was quick to deliver our lunch.

Polonia Polish Restaurant

In what was formerly called the 'Workman's Cooperative', today's Polonia Restaurant is hardly a well-kept secret (filled most nights with eager pierogi patrons and kielbasa fanatics) and the price points, under $10, makes it a huge Hamtramck draw. The original premise of the restaurant, formed in 1927, was to offer familiar Polish dishes to immigrants making the transition to a new country. Now, it serves equally well as a place for non-Poles to discover the best of traditional recipes, all from a spotless kitchen. As a cooperative, it no longer exists, but the spirit of good pricing, good neighbor jawboning and down-to-earth service still imbues the place, and countless leaders in the local business community can be seen in the comfortable booths and tables, enjoying meals beneath the detailed murals depicting Polish country life. Stuffed cabbage, kielbasa with sauerkraut, and pierogis are all homemade (including the sausage), and to be had at the reasonable prices that are part of the Hamtramck vibe. If you are brave enough, try the czarnina (duck soup), which is loaded with dried fruit and makes for a truly authentic flavor experience.

My wife and I stopped in for lunch on a Tuesday. We were quickly greeted and seated, very good. We both ordered the Polish combination plate, and it was very good. The Pierogi were very fresh and delightful. Good Sauerkraut,
Golabki was tasty, but a small portion. Mashed potatoes were superb. The Kielbasa was the star.
Priced reasonable, decent service, great food. What Polonia needs is a little Moe ambiance, and it would rate a 5 star.

Supino Pizzeria

Reviewed By kathleenl183 - Texas

I was visiting Detroit on business and my coworkers took me out here for dinner on a Friday night. We arrived around 7:30 and it was quite busy. There were 9 of us so we ended up waiting on a table for at least 45 minutes. Once seated, the service was great! We ordered 3 large pizzas (cheese, pepperoni and the special) and gobbled it all down. The crust was really thin (just the way I like it) and had great flavor. The pizza also didn't have a lot of sauce on it either, which is also great in my opinion. They also offer a limited beer and wine selection. This is hands down some of the best pizza I've had in my life. If I lived in Detroit, I'd come frequently!

New Palace Bakery

Reviewed By DALANIERMICHIGAN - Canton, Michigan

Went into New Palace for the first time and I was wow-ed! Great selection of rolls, breads, cakes and cookies. Definitely made the bakery look festive with Christmas cakes, cookies and breads. Prices can be pricey but well worth this European bakery! They serve paczkis all year long with a wide range of flavors! If you're in the area, check it out!

Chartreuse Kitchen & Cocktails

Reviewed By BathMonkey - Michigan

The decor is perfect- wood tables, vibrant green walls and good paintings. Very friendly, excellent staff. Our cocktails were delicious- Orange Fedora, which consisted of bourbon and fresh orange and lemon juice.

The meals were great as well. Our group had braised short ribs, seared scallops, and the pheasant entree. Beautiful presentation, very good food.

Reviewed By wild b - Detroit, Michigan

There now this is a very layed back resort ideal for young families. There with 3 generations the youngest 8 the oldest 70. All the restaurants have things for the young folk they are very accommodating with special requests to satisfy your tastes. The staff are very gracious always asking how is everything if you have a problem they do get back with you. If you go to there website most of your questions are answered if not they have a eight hundred number to call. I book this back in oct. last year an Had them charge my credit card equal amount so it was paid for in advance. This was cheaper then the travel sites. Would recommend doing this with credit card that includes travel coverage. Would recommend doing the all-inclusive. I have been diving with Divestluica that pick up at the hotel great shop check them out on the web.

Royal Kabob

Reviewed By Greg D - Grosse Pointe Woods, Michigan

We were in Hamtramck enjoying the neighborhoods and sights and wondered in. At first it seemed dimly lit form the outside but we saw an open sign and charged in. Very nice menu. The fresh pita and whipped garlic sauce that came out as an appetizer was SO good that our server brought us seconds. We all ordered different dishes, some sandwiches, some entrees. The lamb kabob diner was incredibly tender and flavorful. The portions were large. The lamb sandwich tasted completely different (spice wise) and was equally delicious. I ordered the fatoush salad with grilled and it was by far the best I ever had. The staff were friendly, the food was perfect.

Buddy's Pizza-Detroit

Reviewed By JJACK90 - Laurel, Montana, United States

The pizza was okay at best, especially for the price. $185 for 8 people to eat is waaaaay too steep for a pizza place. The waitstaff was unreliable. We asked for water multiple times and but didn't get it. It took 3 hours for us to get our food and pay the check. We were finished but the waitress was nowhere to be found.
