I have never been to Detroit before and when I heard I was going to Greektown I was thoroughly confused. I was assuming a Little Italy or Chinatown, and I was partially correct. It seems to be more of a planned adult entertainment area with a mostly Greek theme. I suppose the focal point would be the casino, which is... More

Little by little this historic neighborhood is disappearing from the Detroit scene. Pick a Greek restaurant and savor Greece before it disappears.

There are a nice little collection of restaurants and taverns. Parking is difficult to find, unless You use one of the parking structures. The street is jammed with pedestrians, so SLOW DOWN when You try to move Your vehicle through the street. The casino dominates the landscape.

We traveled from Germany to Detroit and were out for dinner one evening. I like greetown which is almost only one street. But this street is the most popular street in town for eating and showcars and walking savely in town. We have been in downtown until 11pm and feel save and like in every big city. Tipp: try redsmoke... More

Nice little place for a taste of Greek food. The casino is great fun to, actually I much prefer this casino to the larger MGM. So it's a must do if you are in the Detroit area and into both.

Parking garage at the casino was free, although I understand sometimes it is a 5 dollar fee, maybe it was because we went on a Thursday, not sure. I was also told that the casino will validate parking, something to look into. We had one in our party that could not do a lot of walking so the handicapped parking... More

Fun to walk around and have some nice Greek food. Casino is available, but it is very smoky inside. Not a lot shops to browse. Not crowded during the week when we visited.

Greektown in Detroit is in its own world. It's east to believe that you have just entered a foreign country when you turn down Monroe street. Many Greek restaurants packed into one block give this area a festive feel. The casino brings more people here and adds to the atmosphere.

Greektown is always fun to visit especially in the spring and summer months. Is sits in the heart of downtown and there's always something going on. Trust me, you won't be disappointed.
