Restaurant Details

An edible homage to Cleveland's steel-working past, this family-owned Polish cafeteria sits high above the Flats, on the banks of the Cuyahoga, and dishes out the same sorts of simple, sturdy comfort food — pierogi, cabbage rolls, meatloaf, and mashed potatoes — that once fueled our blue-collar forbears. For students of our culinary history, Sokolowski's serves as a textbook example.
