I'd been to Greektown when going to Detroit for the 2014 NFL MNF Season Opener. I specifically went to it reading the more interesting restaurant selection riding the Detroit People Mover and wanting to see the hotels there. Greektown had some small but safe and tourist friendly streets, a big casino, it was located in-between the GM Center and City... More

Greektown is a lively area, which is good compared to many other areas in Detroit. But apart from some casinos (which I am not a big fan of) and a bunch of Greek restaurants, there is nothing special there. Anyway, if you are in Detroit, why not having a look at this area (rapidly) and even better why not trying... More

On Friday August 29 2014, my group left the St. Regis Hotel and journeyed downtown on our way to the Detroit Jazz Festival. Since we needed to eat we decided to stop off at Greek Town, and what a great decision that was! The buoyancy and effervescence of the atmosphere on the street was infectious and we were easily caught... More

I don't know why, but this block downtown just is fun to visit. The cohesive nature, the consistent food, the friendly people. It's a great downtown Detroit experience.

With multiple options, we were unsure which restaurant to try and hit the jackpot with Santorini. The atmosphere was fantastic, the service top notch, and the food superb. From the hummus and feta appetizers to the traditional trio, which included spanakopita and moussaka, our evening could not have been any better. The street reminds me of Little Italy... bustling, energetic,... More

Not a very clean or appealing area. The restaurants are very touristy. If in Detroit you are better off dining at one of the great Middle Eastern restaurants and skip Greektown.

Love the area... But indeed some of the long time tenants need to freshen up the inside and out... Power washing the street would be a bonus as well... But still, I'm a huge greektown guy...

They had a "Slow Ride" or something going on when we went through. There are many great looking places to eat and it tends to be "the" place to be, at least when we were there tonight which by the way was just a Monday night. I think you could find good places to eat and there were some great... More

Greektown is a cool part of Detroit. However it is a little small, as it is only around the casino. The People Mover station is close by, and there are numerous eateries around.
