Fun Time

We had a great time. Hard to find each other if separated. Don't expect to win! Apparently you need to gamble a lot or frequently to get a room reduction.

The Greektown in Detroit is a very small area but it has some terrific ethnic spots to eat Greek, pizza and asst. The casino there IS A SCAREY DIRTY DUMP....DO NOT BOTHER.

Its ups and downs are part of our history, and you need to visit for several days to understand it. Eating options are numerous and good. My meal and appetizer at Redsmoke in Greektown on Monroe Street is worth a visit and is very reasonable. I recommend visiting.

Greektown itself isn't much -- just a block of so of unimpressive restaurants. Even the bakery that every one raves about isn't very good -- the coffee is mediocre and the pastries are very sweet and sugary, no refined. There is the Greektown Casino which has nice rooms and nice poker room but the rest of the casino is very... More

Love the range of restaurants, bakeries and bars. Usually eat at Pegasus Taverna or at Fishbones. Both are excellent choices.

So We went there enjoyed some lovely flaming cheese,good beer, and fun atmosphere, I think realistically, you just find a restaurant that looks good, and you're gonna get about the same experience, it's a tourist-y place, they play to what they think you want, and it's fun to go there with a group of people, but the dog and pony...

In Detroit for the Auto Show with two friends. The first night we went to Greek Town. It should be called Greek Block. I think there are maybe 4 or 5 restaurants there. We walked one side and then the other. There were a couple of pizza places and 2 or 3 Greek places. We saw some people coming out... More

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
