We wanted a leisurely stroll in Greektown at about 7PM on a Friday night in late August 2015 and ultimately find a place to eat dinner. It was a perfect night for dining outside. However, the street where all the restaurants are located is set up for live music performances which in and of itself isn't so bad, but they've... More

I remember coming down to Greektown with my dad when I was younger and couldn't drive. The atmosphere of the area mesmerized me. It was amazing how much I remembered when I finally came back down on my own roughly 20 years later. All the turns, the smells and the amazing people walking around enjoying the area. What a wonderful... More

Came here to stroll on a Saturday night. Fun vibe, though a bit touristy. It was a big event night with a ballgame and the Kenny chesney concert so we paid too much to park.its fine for walking around but not much to it. Mostly restaurants.

Greektown is an ideal place to visit if you are in Detroit for either a Tigers or Lions game. It is a short distance from both Ford Field and Comerica Park. There are a number of bars and restaurants, along with the Greektown Casino. On summer weekends, Greektown is pedestrians only, which is a nice touch.

We had some time to tour and walked from GM Ren Cen to the Greektown Casino. We've been to casinos everywhere, so this one is nothing special. But, if you want to do some gaming while in town, there's nothing wrong with this place. Right outside are some of the best restaurants in the City. Do not miss a chance... More

There's nothing left of the old Greektown businesses, no good shops or anything of an authentic neighborhood feel like there used to be. You can still find a decent restaurant or bakery in the area, but you will now pay premium prices (unless you are getting comps from the casino.)

I grew up just outside of the Detroit area so any time I am visiting I go straight for Greektown. I love the nightlife, and Pegasus on Monroe is phenomenal.
