Greektown has evolved over the years. Before the casino, it was standing room only in any of the restaurants any night of the week. Food was exceptional at them all. It was safe and fun. We would love to hang out there on the weekends. The casino came to town and it became even better. Then the casino took over... More

We've been here many times over the years. Fishbones and then many of the Greek establishments. Always a good time and good food!

There are casinos which I don't care for, but there are restaurants and snack shops which I love. Eating should be an Olympic sport... like hurdles made from Baklava that you have to eat! There is a lot going on here in a small space... if you can't find something to do here, then you're a boring person! Enjoy the... More

6:00pm on a Saturday night and maybe 20 people walking on the sidewalks. It's been years since I've been here and I remember it being packed with people on a Saturday night. Sorry to say, didn't feel real safe. Wondering if others know something I don't and that's why it was empty.

We didn't expect to find this nice little area in Detroit but glad we did. Lots of bars and restaurants all side by side. The people mover stops here as well.

The Joe is dated but it is still a great atmosphere. They are however starting construction for a new building in Detroit for the Wings, which if I'm not mistaken is to be completed 2016

The variety of Greek restaurants and the folks on display in the streets is enough to love a big city. The New Parthenon in particular with its columns of Greek architecture paintings is wonderful along with its 4 or 5 levels. Jimmy, the owner, treats you like one of his own.

Greektown is one street in downtown Detroit that has a lot of Greek restaurants (but others, too). It's also where Greektown Casino is. It's all outdoor, so be prepared in the winter. There is street parking, lot parking and then there's the free casino parking. Nothing really to see or do here other than eat.

There was no where to park for blocks and blocks, I am terrible at parallel parking so it was extremely difficult.
