Fun to visit

Greek town has quite a few good eateries and is easy to walk around. You can get there from downtown Detroit by foot by car or by taxi or People Mover.

Greektown was my most favourite areas in Detroit. Greektown is slowly falling from its original self. I do seriously miss the Laikon Cafe.

We waited 15 minutes for the Front Desk Clerk to get off the phone; never acknowledging us! Puzzling since we were the only ones in the lobby checking in at the time. She looked in every direction but in the direction of us. When she did get off the phone, she looked down and never looked up again. It was... More

Growing up in Detroit, this is not the Greektown I once knew. Not that its bad now, just different. Almost all the old Greek restaurants are gone and that old world vibe went with them. Having said that, Greektown today is still a vibrant, fun place to hang out. Lots of great restaurants (Red Smoke is one of my favorites)... More

The area is making some fantastic changes! The one side of the block has outside dining options! Some new bars have opened since I was last here and it looks like the area is continuing to grow and expand! This is very exciting for Detroit!! 💕

I visited Greektown while in town for business. The area was bustling, and it felt completely safe the entire time. There are a lot of unique shops and restaurants there to keep you busy. They just added a deck area in front of some of the shops that allows for more outdoor dining options too. Highly recommended.

Not what I thought it would be. Only found one Greek restaurant which looked very authentic but the rest of the strip was full of American bars and restaurants. Where is the Greek? Don't bother.

Not very impressive. We heard a lot about it, but when we visited, we were disappointed. Similar to the entire City of Detroit. Sorry to say that :(

Stayed at the Greektown Hotel. It was pleasurable but what was more interesting was getting up and going for a walk before anything opened. They are really doing some great things and there are some wonderful things to see and learn about that you cannot in the night when it is crowded. My experience will help me navigate better next...
