Visited for the first time upon a strong recommendation by our friends. Waited about 25 Minutes for a six top. Very organized about handling the line since no reservations accepted. Whole party must be present to get seated. Recommend the lemon chicken soup and salad. For main I had the filet mingion shishkabob. Delicious. Lamb chops super too! The grouper... More

A group of ten of us ate brunch at Greek Islands late in December 2014. Best was the Greek Salad which contained no greens, only tomatoes, olives, feta, etc. Two of us had lamb chops, a generous serving of four good sized rib chops. Various other appetizers were also excellent. Dine outside if the weather permits.

Lines can get long and they don't take reservations, but the food is delicious. People come from all over to eat here. The ribs are my favorite. Actually, I have never heard anyone not like what they ordered. It is a greek restaurant where they put homemade hummus on the table with bread when you are seated....very yummy homemade hummus...

Chicken was dry, Greek Salad was not leafy - just big cuts of vegetables and hard triangles of feta cheese. There at 4:30 on a Friday and the waiter was very impatient. Got a strong feeling he was rushing us out for another seating after us. Made us feel foolish for asking questions and was very condescending, This is a... More

We almost walked right by this cute taverna on La Olas Blvd. It is not in the busy middle, where all the buzz is; it's located a few blocks across the intercoastal bridge, and if you're not looking for it, you'd stroll right by. But, don't. The grilled calamari is as good as we had in Athens, fresh, flavored with... More

Always delicious !! We have come here at least twice a season for many years when we are here from Toronto, Canada. In Toronto there is a street called Danforth Avenue otherwise known as "GreekTown" there are dozens of restaurants all within a number of blocks and quite honestly almost nothing compares to the Greek Isles. At Greek Isles we... More

Last night we decided to go to dinner. A friend of mine lives on Galt Ocean Drive so it's an easy walk to the restaurant. Something to note when you're dinning here is the wait. It's not a typical "take your name have a drink at the bar and we'll call you when I tables is ready". You basically stand... More

The moussaka and the souvlaki were both very,very delicious! The server and the service were excellent. We left very satisfied. This restaurant always seems to be busy and last night was no exception. We went at 6:00pm and were fortunate to get in. The last time we attempted, we did not....too long of a wait as husband was too hungry.... More

We had the best experience with the food and the service, until the moment we used the dirty restrooms... Please correct that. We love to go to this restaurant. The lamb chops and the shrimps were excellent! Wonderful wine., and wonderful salads and deserts.

Be prepared for a great meal in a loud and packed restaurant. This place is always crowded with just about all types of clients: families, couples, singles, etc. Have the shrimp, the ribs, and the octopus.
