i truly think everyone that visits the Detroit area needs to have lunch and/or dinner in a Greektown restaurant. want a deep-dish pizza? it will take at least 45 minutes to get it ordering. so order the pizza and then go walk the mini shopping mall. comeback in in 40 minutes and get a table. there are a wide selection...

Greektown has everything you need for a week-end visit . . bars, restaurants, bakery, casino. There are also 2 nice hotels; The Greektown Hotel is basic and the Atheneum is more upscale but reasonably priced. Greektown is also a 5-10 minute walk from the Renaissance Center / Waterfront and in the other direction . . . Comerica park and Ford... More

Of course we had to visit Greektown when we're in the Detroit area. There's parking in the corner of Monroe and the casino which is fairly close to a lot of restaurants and the people mover.

Enjoyed the Saganaki at Pegasus and the Greek bakery furnished some excellent dessert. Great place to walk around and people watch. Convenient to reach via the PeopleMover. Opa!

The area could use some sprucing up. We had some great food and drink. It is really close to downtown Detroit--lots of freeways!!!!!!

With the addition of the casino, and the rebirth of Detroit and especially the downtown/midtown areas, along with the proximity of Comerica Park and Ford Field Greektown has seen a resurgence. The prosperity has attracted new restaurants ranging from Greek to barbecue, to sports bars. Greektown has the best attractions surrounding the casino the why we always go there.

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 Now the most of the Greek restaurants are gone and have been replaced by a variety of other cuisines.

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
