Red Apple Buffet - Norwood Park
The ambiance was okay, the staff very courteous, the restaurant clean & the buffet had a great variety of dishes. Even though the place was less than half full, the buffet items were constantly being replaced by fresh trays. I am Polish with wonderful memories of great food that relatives cooked. I have no complaints about the quantity of available foods. Some dishes were quite good, although I was not not at all impressed with others. Most of the dishes I tasted were bland. The chicken noodle soup was hot & tasteless. Overall I rate the restaurant just fair & won’t return, but keep looking for a better experience elsewhere.
The wine glass were small and the waitress fill it only half way. We literally had to paid the bill at the cashier because the waitress forgot to give us the bill when we were finished with our dining experience.
Fresh and abundant polish food. Great coffee options! Quiet and comfortable atmosphere.
The food was so good, my mom and I are going to go here for our Polish food fix whenever we need it!
Very delicious food items, big selection of home made fresh polish/russian dishes that returned me to my childhood. And all for very reasonable charge. Would highly recommend this place!
Excellent menu Ethnic Polish food made fresh and served buffet style. We love it !!!
Looking for great Polish food? This is the place! From the sausages and sauerkraut to the cabbage rolls and strawberry pirogies, everything here was delicious. Highly recommended!!
Best potato pancakes I’ve ever had! Stuffed cabbage and pierogi excellent.
Went there for Father's day as we've done for several years now was quite surprised about a $15 hike in food having said that though it could be justified because they had lobster crab shrimp and other things that they never had on the menu before obviously they need to be compensated I wish we would have known that before we got there FYI they do not take credit cards there is some sort of ATM machine there for a fee what I'm saying it's always very good it just would have been nice to know that much of a price increase
This was their 50th anniversary dinner and it was great. Lots of varieties of excellent tasting food.
Just as good as Grandma made it! Serious comfort food.
Everything was wonderful. We were celebrating our daughters 49th birthday. Our daughter, son, and their spouses all loved it as much as we did.
Delicious home-style cooking. A great experience and very friendly service staff
A little confusing getting our large group in, but by and large this is an AMAZING spot. Great food well-priced. Really kind wait staff.
The food was absolutely delicious! Our only criticism is that it was a little over $100 for 4 people to eat. And yes, it is an all-you-can-eat buffet, but the food is very rich and heavy and none of us could eat a lot of it. But, that will not stop us from coming back again and again!
Great selection of Eastern European specialties in a fun setting.
Food was awesome!
Almost as good as Grandma’s kitchen. Thank goodness my kids like the place almost as much as I do.
Just like Grandma made! Every trip I find something new that I’m excited to see. It’s hard to not stuff yourself to the point of being uncomfortable. I’m very happy my kids seem to like it as much as I do.
Great food and drinks. Clean and spacious. Staff was very friendly and atmosphere was comfortable and child friendly.
Seems odd that the same food should cost more on weekends. Still, tasty, plentiful. I left in a food coma. But go during the week and save a few bucks.
Very authentic polish cuisine. Not all the varieties of pierogi are out, you just need to ask your server for what kind you want and how many and they will bring them to your table. Very good.
My wife was very disappointed with the food
Good food but highly overpriced. When you go on the weekend it ends up being roughly $32 per person because they charge you gratuity. Also, its cash only and they don't mention that on their website!
Just like Grandma’s kitchen. An amazing place to get all the comfort foods you grew up with.
The wonderful authentic polish food on this buffet is prepared with love and the restaurant is beautifully maintained.
Truly dazzling array of authentic Polish cuisine -- for every course -- in all-you-can eat buffet. Food was attractive and well seasoned, spanning rich sauces to light and fresh. There is something for every palate. Potato pancakes are outstanding, and refreshed regularly. Loved the coffee meringue cookies. Pleasant, clean ambiance and excellent, friendly and professional service. Great value, great time.
We very much enjoyed our dinner and birthday celebration at the Red Apple. The wait staff made the birthday special with a song, cake, and a candle. Delicious food for a reasonable price - cash only though.
I highly recommend for comfort food buffet.
So upset, and disappointed. I invited my mom and my wife,and my children for dinner. I made reservation for 5pm. We came 4.45pm....we patiently waited for 45 min.....we were told that table will be ready in 5 min. We waited.....and then other people came and they got table right away, then next group came and also got table....so we just left.......hungry.....but what every we had very good time and other restaurant
Delicious good and delightful service! Go very hungry.
Food was yummy. Servers were friendly. I will be back.
Super friendly and helpful waitstaff. Delicious food, potato pancakes are outstanding. Good value, food is way above average "buffet" food. Parking lot is tiny but street parking on Milwaukee. They take cash only, I wish that was a little clearer before we booked a group.
Everything was great, the service was amazing. We will be back soon.
Group if six. Sat in the back and we we loud and laughing. Good food good times.
Soda should always be included in buffet price and not extra. Don't think a 15% gratuity shouldn't be added to the bill. After all, it's a buffet, customer's serve themselves
Went there because the reviews were very good. Top 10 buffet in the country !! WOW.
Had to try it.
The service was good. Our waitress was very attentive and pleasant.
The food...some items were very good, some were just OK.
Items I liked: Pork Cutlet, Vegetable rice, Flan, Ham Hock, brisket, sausage.
Other items were just average.... like the chicken noodle soup, schnitzel, lamb, chicken wing, potato pancake, pierogies, most pastries, etc.
It was a good experience, but I enjoyed some salad bars much better at half the price.
Food was authentic. Good. Service was good. Cash only!!!
Found this restaurant through the open table app. Disappointed when the price for the buffet wasn't listed anywhere. (Should have asked!). It was $24 per person which seemed a little high. When it was time to check out, at first unwilling to take credit card. Said they only accept cash. Told them OpenTable said they took credit cards. The lady then wanted to charge a $1 service fee. Told her it was out first time there and she waived the fee. Not sure I would return. Wasn't worth the amount of money paid and the check out lady was rude.
There were 4 of us and we really enjoyed the food. Good, wholesome and fattening.
Good Polish food, just like Grandma used to make. This is a buffet restaurant but the buffet has many options to choose from. Establishment itself is not fancy and finding a place to park was difficult.
