I have been to the Greektown once many years ago and love the vibrant atmosphere. After being assured by friends that it's safe at night, i decided to have dinner there at night on my most recent trip to MI. Its pretty vibrant at night and i felt safe, but it was much smaller than it used to be and... More

Greektown has been a feature of downtown Detroit for as long as I can remember, and I've been going there for well over fifty years. The casino is a new addition, and if you enjoy slots or other games of chance, that's fine, but there are lots of unique restaurants: Pizza Papalis, the New Parthenon, Fishbones, Pegasus, the list goes...

As a world traveler (been to over 50 countries and visited every state) I can say we have the best Greek town and greek food in the USA. I have also been to the Greek harbor area of Tarpon Springs, FLorida which is a rival but the food is not as good. Do not miss eating at Pegasus. All the... More

Located in the heart of downtown Detroit, Greektown has a heartbeat of it's own. The many restaurants, shops, and Greektown Casino make up about 3 or 4 blocks of a great day or night time experience. I believe there is a homemade fudge shop in the casino building that also gives out samples. While you're there, take time to eat... More

I like what they have done and it is much needed for a place to party before and after games at a short walk to Comerica and Ford Fields. I would say this is a Beale St in Memphis wanna be with a Greek flare. I like both but it should be named Greek St.

This the heart of Downtown Detroit. It has the Greektown Casino and hotel, plenty of resturants from different culturals and bars. There are shops and plenty of police presence which guarantee your safety.

The casino has eaten up a lot of the old neighborhood, bringing more covered parking and a bit more money. Astoria Bakery's facelift is gorgeous and the pastries are still fabulous. Several new upscale Greek restaurants compete with the old time row building eateries. Laikon is still my favorite. For architecture buffs, dating from 1884, Old St Mary's Church was... More

Detroit down town has a lot of things - offices, churches, residential buildings, arenas, opera house - they are all important and nice, but at some point you just want to relax and spend a few hours doing nothing - and Greektown is the place to go. It's a few blocks, pedestrian friendly, with a lot of bars and restaurants.... More

Definitely where the city is spending money. Allot of great restaurants and some of the best bars in the city. I'm not much of a casino guy so I can't comment on it. If you only have one day this is no pre-planning required area, tons of options.
