REVIEWS OF Alexanders Polish American Restaurant IN Michigan

Kevin Ward

Have been going here for many years, including when they were at their original location. Their Kraut is still one of the best around, and I still enjoy their soups, but many other dishes have gone down hill. The staff are also not even close to being as friendly, and customer oriented, as they used to be.

Monsieur Connoissueur

NO CABBAGE SOUP??? Absurd! How does a Polish restaurant NOT have a polish staple?? if it’s on the menu, and its polish.... then you should be serving it daily. Restaurant- Small, quaint. Drafty. They should install a double door system …

Dan Ramsey

Great food and good price. Very nice and friendly staff.

Janet Duff

Outstanding food. More than enough for 2 meals. The price is more than reasonable. Should charge more.

Sally Lobsinger

Polish food is good. Dill pickle soup too.

Mike Rinesmith

Amazing food!

Heather Raby

We were excited to try this place. There was no cook. The waitress had to cook our food. Then they were out of corned beef hash and the waitress told us that's ok because it will be too much food anyway.

Jennifer Le Blanc

This is a great little hidden gem. The food is pretty good, portions are huge, prices are fantastic. You can tell their patrons visit often as many are on a First name basis. This was my first time eating here, and I still want more pierogies.

dennis horsfield

we walked in at 2 oclock on a sunday my boyfriend went in to ask if they were still open and they said yes until 3. so we walked in with our 2 young children and began sitting down then we were told sorry were actually closed by the guy in the kitchen. tell me why the elderly couple that was in there was just beginong to order but they refused to take our buisness. this place is very rude and from what i can tell not kid friendly. if you have small children stay away.

Mike Felty

Friendly service, delicious food.

Mary Fegan

Great.....and tasty#


Decent place to go for a cheap eat in a dive diner with Good food. Service is always decent and the food is always good when you start ordering more of the Polish side of the menu. Some things I would like to mention that need to be addressed... 1: the menus, please update them.. just do it. 2: update the specials menu to properly reflect the days the specials. 3: the booths don't fit fat people, and there are plenty of them

Phil Ross

Food was disappointing. Dill pickle soup was interesting.

GlassBox Adventures

My little family eats breakfast here every weekend, and its always the best. The country fried steak is amazing too. Only thing i get.

Jennifer Young

Quaint basement kitchen feel with friendly waitress. But not worth the drive to south Lyon. Food took more than 20 min to arrive after prompting and then was obviously cooked too quickly as was doughy and burnt.

Brian Radde

You can't beat this place for value! The amount of food you get for the money is second to none in this area!

Marty Gaut

Carol Mannarino

Love the polish platter!!! The dill pickle soup is so DELIOUS!!!


The food was good prices great

Diane Holden

Best place for polish food. Pierogies are made from scratch aged so are the potato pancakes and stuffed cabbage . I also love, love the homemade soups, especially the dill pickle soup and mushroom soups. Broasted chicken is also awesome. Terry and Lila have a gen of a restaurant here hidden in South Lyon. I highly recommend going there and tasting the homemade food for yourself. Can't go wrong with anything on the menu!. Staff is also excellent and tpu are treated like family.

Charlotte Milotz

Delicious food. Nice variety of choices. The Polish platter is excellent!! Terrific pierogies! Moderate prices.

Gary McLellan

Awesome homemade food, awesome staff, ask for Ms Manoogian she is a sweethart

Dana Foran

First time here. Dill pickle soup is really good and so are the perogies. Stuffed cabbage was a little over done. Service was good and the food came out fast.

Haley Lynne

I give them credit for having great prices but you also get what you pay for food wise. I tried Alexander's a few months ago and got food poisoning. I gave Alexander's another shot last night and my food was cold and the green beans were very noticeably canned as well as the mashed potatoes being very chunky.. very disappointed but again you get what you pay for..

Jason Howard

Good food and great staff. The wife and I will be back.

Colleen Skazalski

Great breakfast, great service, and great prices. What more could you ask?

Keylie Siler

The ladies here are fantastic! They had me try the dill pickle soup and omg so good ! I got a Ruben with fries and a slice of cheese cake I WILL BE BACK !!!!

Sharon Todd

very comfortable and very nice people. The prices are awesome too. Being a Polish person myself it is very authentic.

Jesus Bracho

Asked for polish plate. It was great. Golumpki, polish sausage, sauerkraut, pierogies, mashed potatoes and soup. Very reasonable price.

Seven Smythe

If you read the other reviews you’ll notice that the only things people seem to like about this restaurant are the dill pickle soup, the Polish cuisine, and the cheap breakfasts. And that’s about all my family like about it as well. They often close early because they just don’t have the customers. But they seem to do fine for breakfast and lunch. I think the owners should limit it to a breakfast/lunch establishment and simply feature their Polish dishes on a lunch menu that offers smaller portions.

Drew Pikstein

Great place to eat comfort food! Their dill pickle soup is delicious!

Joe Mazur

Amazing food here! Great service. Definitely recommend

Mohammed Dixon

I eat in this spot a lot since I work right next to it. I like how the service is always awesome and they keep the spot well organized at all times. Prices are convenient and they serve generous portions.

Charles Scicluna

Great food and prompt service. Highly recommend.

Nick Sacco

Fast fresh and friendly nice little hidden gem to get you away from the chain restaraunts. Almost like a Coney Island but they make there polish food from scratch


Cozy little spot to eat on your office lunch break. Food and service was super fast and the PRICES CAN'T BE BEAT!

Joffre LaFontaine

Delicious Pierogi's and Gołąbki's (stuffed cabbage) !!!

Paul Sedlik

Been in the area a year now, I've finally found my favorite little food spot. I liked the smaller atmosphere, tired of all the commercialized food of the chains...this is good comfort food and prices are great for a family dinner.

Dino Tori

Great food great staff great prices what more can you say

Stephen Smith

The Polish combo plate was excellent and a ton of food for $9. Loved it.

Savannah Chris

Hands down best Polish food ever. Delicious. Best price for breakfast too. :-)

Jack Ramble

Decent food, large portions, reasonable prices. Friendly staff. A gem, don't overlook this one.

Tom D

Best breakfast. Great value. Good service.

Jim Read

Just a small family place. Food service and prices were great

Tim Szczesny

I always like trying to find good Polish food. Decided to give this place a try based on the reviews. And I always judge a Polish restaurant first by its pierogies. Unfortunately, they were cooked perfectly on the outside and looked awesome, but the dough was very pasty and pretty flavorless. I won't be back. Extra star for the service.

jordan carter

Such a wonderful place and the waitresses were so helpful and just all around made you feel like family. Shout out to the Italian nama of the restraint you know who you are.


Excellent Polish Food and Service I had Polish combo.plate and my wife had potato pancakes great food

Linda Redman

Everything is always delicious !! Very nice staff .

Susan Grant

Food could be better

debbie dohring

It was very good I had a great time, the waitresses were very good as well

Curtis Martin

Brought my elder mother. They where very kind and considerate to us both. Cheap cheap prices.


I ordered pierogies, a side of kraut, and a sample of the dill pickle soup because I've heard so many great things about it. My husband ordered the patty melt and fries. We enjoyed Everything! It all seemed hand-made from scratch. The dining room is very small and needs a little TLC (rips in the seat cushions, areas on the wall that need paint touch-up), but it was clean.

Guy. Longbow Moorhead

Been going here for years, Awesome employees & Owners, Family Oriented feeling, good service & Good Food.

TJ Houck

rebecca Ratliff

Authentic Polish food can't be beat

John Newman

Very good eats

Jay Felstow

Good affordable Polish food. The restaurant lacks charm and the booths are very tight.

Jonathan McCallie

Friendly service, good food and reasonable prices

Matthew VanBuhler

The Polish Plate Combo and Potato Pierogis are seriously amazing.

Elaine Gasaway

This place is tiny, and frankly the dining area is showing a lot of wear and tear. But the food was very good. We ordered the Polish combo plates, and it was a huge amount of food. The kielbasa was just OK, but the stuffed cabbage was just like my grandmother's. The mashed potatoes were obviously made from scratch. The perogi were huge and delicious. If you want authentic Polish food, this is the right place to go.

Tyler Young

Great meal, staff and price. We will be going again

Katie Rychlik

For a great breakfast and wonderful friendly service, you cannot beat Alexander's. Their homemade soups, especially their dill pickle soup, will leave you wanting for more.

lord topaz

Good old fashion Polish cooking,friendly staff ,and with a great atmosphere

Tee Zee

Great polish food is not so easy to find and I am so glad I stumbled upon it here. Awesome potato pancakes and stuffed cabbage and pierogi!!! Everything was delicious.

Nero Steel

If you come here. You gotta try the Dill Pickle soup! I'm not a pickle guy and I thought it was pretty good.

Connie Rose

Very inexpensive and good. The dining area is cold however and the restroom was really cold.

Raymond Rubin

Always good

Andy Amsdill

Great service and amazing food. Run do not walk to Alexander's!

Sarah Cohen

Great little place. Food was delicious and atmosphere was nice

Baely Rain

I really wish i could give this place negative five. weve gone here a few times andeach time the service has been terrible. The first time the waitress was good at first ..but wjen i asked her for a drink or for more food, she groaned and sighed like i was burdoning her. The second time we had the same waitress and its almost as if she got more rude and more tired of her job ..being disrespectful between her body language and her tone of voice. This last time, i had asked for something well done and the lady looks at me and sais "yeah we get it" because i had explained to her that the last time the eggs were mushy and not done all the way . and this has happened two out of the three recent times i have been there . even after her saying that she gets it in her disrespectful tone, the eggs came back not cooked and i had to ask her for new ones. Not to mention i ordered something and she gave me something completely opposite and more expensive and MADE me pay for it . i would never reccomend this place to anyone and it is probably a good chance i wont return there until there is better staff and more respectful and diligent people working there.

Paul Turner

Great home cooked style food, just like mom would make! Staff were wonderful!

Rita Walsh

Lovely atmosphere. Great food and even better service! I recomend the cajun chicken pita!

Zackery Gay

Good food for incredibly low prices

Shirley Case

Food and prices are good and the waitress team is good alson They have great soups especially Not a fancy place but good place to go. They have good selections for all three meal times

Bree Se

Great food for the price! The waitstaffs were very friendly and helped each other out. It wasn't that typical "hey, that is your table, you go find out and help them out." If, I am in the area again, I would go there again!

Juli Caltrider

Excellent food and service

Janice Redding

The food was fine but the service started out horribly. This was our 3rd Sunday here and our waitress, if you can call her that, brought us our coffee and then never returned to the table to take our order. I got her attention and told her that we were ready to order; she told us to, "Hang on a sec" She still never returned to take our order. Luckily one of the other waitresses noticed this and took our order. We've had this problem before with this particular waitress and it's obvious that other customers have too -- it's shocking that she's still there. If you want good service on Sunday, ask for Suzy or Annie.

Richard Moran

The best thing about the place is the coffee. The wait staff had one table. Us which was 2 people. My wifes order was wrong. An egg ordered over medium was cooked so well that it looked like it stayed on the grill for 10 minutes. The cornedbeef hash that she ordered wasn' t there. It was hashbrowns. The waitress brought out the cornedbeef hash when my wife had finished eating her egg. (She are it because she was hungry) The toast had about 4 good sized fruit flies crawling in it. Needless to say they were not touched. The kielbasa and sourkraut was the worst i have had. The waitress took forever getting our bill to us. She would rather socialize than work. Do yourself a favor and stay far away from this place !!!! PS My rating is negitive 0.

Nancy Wipp

Good food. The place was dirty-ish but prices were very reasonable. I would go there again.

Terry Bond-Manville

Wow... secret, GPS found! Yummy breakfast, family owned, and friendly waitress.

Jason Skiba

I really enjoyed our first trip to Alexander's! I had the Polish sampler plate and it was good overall. Golumpki was very good. Sauerkraut wasn't sour enough for me. Kielbasa was mundane but decent. The cheese and the potato pierogi's were phenomenal, the sauerkraut pierogi lacked (see sauerkraut portion of review). The mashed potatoes and gravy were really good! Overall I was very happy with the food and wonderful service!

Kayla Bulak

Favorite restaurant in South Lyon. Great price, great service. Very family oriented.

Food is good, but service could be better. Not very friendly.

Robert Truss

Good food at a good price and friendly service.

Richard Badarak

Lot of really good food and very good price

Joe Haddad

Small little place. Good service and good location. Some food was really good and other was not so good. The pierogis potato pancakes weren't very good. However, the stuffed pepper and mashed potatoes were great.

Pete Banchoff

You definitely get your bang for the buck here. Food is always great, service is great. I have no complaints at all.

Tammy Zmudczynski

Love it love it I wish the pierogie dough was thinner
