It use to be just what it says, Greek. Now the most of the Greek restaurants are gone and have been replaced by a variety of other cuisines.

I had no idea what to expect, so was very surprised that Greektown is a tiny two block area. It's anchored by a large casino, with restaurants along the entire two blocks. You can get Greek food (of course!), as well as BBQ, hamburgers and more! I was disappointed that there wasn't any shopping! A couple of bakeries were intermixed,... More

The area of Greek Town is really neat and fun. The Casino is a littel run down and smells highly of cingarette smoke. In Michigan one of the only establishments you can smoke in now is a casino. You can tell! Pegasus resturan use to be really good but has gone down. We were there in January. The floor was... More

Went to Trappers Alley / Greek Town. I am not a fan of Greek food, but many are. I love history and immensly enjoyed the time i spent there while in Detroit on business. Worth your time to go there. If you like Greek food, I am told it is fantastic!! (I prefer Italian LOL)

A nice bit of hopping nightlife can be found in Greektown on Monroe Avenue, downtown Detroit. Restaurants– a few of them Greek, clubs, bars, a pastry shop... all open late. The lights and foot traffic on a pleasant evening can make it one of the brighter spots in Detroit, even if it isn't as Greek as it used to be.

What a cool and trendy area! Lots of different restaurants to choose from, and of course the Greektown casino.

Like many larger cities Detroit has a variety of different ethnic and cultural burbs. Greektown happens to be one of my favorites. Though mixed with the flashing lights of the nearby casinos, Greektown still holds much of its mom and pop charm. Many of the bakeries, restaurants and businesses are still family owned and operated. I've yet to come across... More

It was fun - very authentic. The food is great and the parking still sucks. The greek festival started a trend many years back with special ethnic festivals at the riverfront. I loved going to Greektown every chance I could growing up -- but just had to visit on my last trip home and was happy to see it doing... More
