    Of all the Polish restaurants in Greenpoint, Karczma may have the whackiest design, treading close to theme restaurant territory. But its huge menu of comfort food is consistently well-executed.

    Their traditional Polish dumplings are among the best in the city. You can choose between steamed and fried pierogi & they come with a variety of stuffings like cheese and potato, mushroom and meat. Read more

    While the plate of polish specialties is perfect for those interested in the Polish traditional taste, their grilled salmon with dill sauce was the best salmon I had in a while. Their zurek is a must!

    Delicious and authentic Polish food. We got the platter for two, which included cabbage, potatoes, bacon, beef, chicken, salmon and two kinds of sausages. It was an immense amount of food!

    The soups here are authentic. The chicken soup comes prepared just how I would get it in Warsaw - rectangular noodles, dotted with carrots & parsley. They nail the zurek, spot on.

    Authentic Polish food, great service. Arrive early, usually a wait, grab a drink at the Brooklyn Bazaar. Come hungry. Plate of Polish specialties, hunter stew, latkes, apple pie. Good beer selection.

    Order the pierogis fried, not boiled, and one of the Polish, Czech, or German beers served in giant glasses. This restaurant is a great value for the price, so come hungry and prepare to feast. Read more

    Huge portions for very reasonable prices. Don't be scared by lard, go for it! All the rest is also very tasty, yet heavy, so beware. Beer goes perfectly with most of the food there.

    An excellent grilled fresh ham that was first marinated in white wine, and an appetizer of asparagus wrapped with the kind of great Polish ham they still smoke in Greenpoint. Read more

    So much food. So much. Pickle soup is surprisingly nice, keibasa sausage is huge and so good, goulash is huge and super filling

    Its hard not to say everything, but the potato and cheese pierogi and goulash were mind blowing. The meal for two was exquisite as well!

    The rustic touch and feel is why you're here and it pervades every dish.Seat yourself, alone or with you friend(s), on a stool at the bar! Allow the beautiful Polish waitresses to charm and spoil you.

    The white borscht in sourdough bread bowl is the best soup you'll ever have. It's also an app, a main course, a dessert and a breakfast all in one. You don't need anything else.

    Great low cost polish restaurante, high amount of really nice food. Grill is great with different types of meat. Ambience is also great with people dressed with traditional outfits.

    Ermahgerd, so much food. But so delicious! Try to Polish Specialties plate combo'd w/the fried cheese app & Polish Mojito (like cold apple cider w/mint!) & prepare for the best food coma of your life.

    I didn't know how much I love and miss kielbasa until I went here. Great staff, great food, definitely coming back.

    Pierogies are delicious, I got them fried at the bartender's suggestions and it was great. Cheese and potato is a bit bland. The mushroom ones were my favorite. The veggie sandwich was terrible.

    Amazing Polish food. Standouts here: Hunter's Stew, pickle soup. Get the assorted plate for a well-balanced (and super filling) meal.

    Start your meal with "peasant lard," a pool of semi-liquid fat dotted with bacon -- it goes better on the rye bread than butter, and it's healthier, too. Read more

    The waitress was very sweet and helpful and food great! One very disturbing sight was when the owner grabbed a young waiter by the neck and dragged him to the back acting like a jerk!

    Plate of Polish specialties is a good deal to share between two people, but the white borscht is amazing! I've never had anything like it before.

    Hunter's stew lived up to its name and the rest of the menu more than held its own. The faux-peasant tavern decor is also something else.

    Get the grilled plate to share (options for parties of 2 or 3) for a meaty, filling meal for <$12 each. When in (Brooklyn) Poland!

    Kitschy but delishy (lol!!!!!) Hunters stew or whatever it's called was the best thing on the polish plate so just get that and perogi.
