Anyone who has been here knows that there is always a long line of patrons out the door waiting for seats (since there are no reservations- all first come, first serve). If you LOVE Greek food- this is THE place to go. It is 100% worth the wait to stand in line until a seat becomes available! Food is incredible... More

The food is a bit hit or miss. I enjoyed the greek salad and chicken dish.. But the pork souvlaki was just bad! The portions are smaller then what I would normally expect from a greek restaurant... But the service was decent. I wouldn't go back...

I really can not fault this restaurant. Service - excellent. Food - excellent. Attractive wait staff who are attentive. One of the best Greek places I have eaten and it is Greek food - not a deviation. Price is fair and there is a reason why this place is so popular - it is simply that good.

Had dinner at Greek Islands last nite and we were impressed by the quality of the food, the attentive waitstaff, and atmosphere of this authentic Greek restaurant. I would highly recommend this restaurant and we have made it a destination for our yearly trip to Ft. Lauderdale.

I went to the restaurant shortly after 5pm and was surprised at how busy it was at that hour. It seemed like a lot of people were regulars. The hummus and bread was addictive. The portions were generous and came with a side of vegetables and potatoes that was very large and not the typical uninspired version you often get.... More

We're locals out for a drive along the shore road and looking for a place to have lunch. Haven't had Greek for a while so gave it a try. It's a very large restaurant with indoor and out seating. Too hot for outside so we were seated confortably inside next to a big window. We were happy to see a... More

The service in this place is impeccable, during high season (Nov-May) you may find that you have to wait to get a table, but it is worth it. The establishment does not take reservations. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is warm, is almost like being at home with friends.

I have been here many times over the years. This time I was pleasantly surprised since at 7 o'clock we did not have to wait in line. But in August this is a commercially quiet time. I was also surprised that we were charged $3 to park on the restaurant lot, even though the lot was more than half empty.... More
