Every year I return to Florida, this is a must stop at. Greek town in Chicago has nothing over this place. It is as authentic as it comes. They have outdoor seating as well. I have eaten there every year several times a year while in Ft. Lauderdale for the winter and never dissappointed.

Count yourself lucky when you can get in this place. The food is as good as we've had at a Greek Restaurant.

A landmark restaurant, there for many years, tried and true... I would have given a 5 star rating, but for the outside patio seating, that is next to A1a, with very noisy buses, trucks, and cars roaring by, making conversation almost impossible at times. Don't let that stop you from enjoying all the Greek deliciousness and competent service! Raves for... More

Like many on here, this restaurant was recommended to me by a friend. It is conveniently located, the decor is appropriate and not stuffy and the building is clean. A plus. The selection of food is good and the menu is easy to read. There were a few items I was looking for and did not see listed but all... More

This is a very lively and popular place that doesn't take reservations so get there early. The atmosphere was very lively, service was excellent, prices reasonable, menu selections were extensive, but food didn't leave much of an impression. They ran out of lamb shank so the waiter talked me into leg of lamb. Boring. The lamb chops were very good... More

We have been eating at the place for years. Almost always happy with it. This time we were surprised that the portion of Lamb Chops was unusually small. The price has not fallen with the portion size. This may be their practice during the season. Everthing is different after May 15th.

Visited following other reviews and recommendation of locals. 25 mins queue to get in. Simple tables. Great menu and food excellent. Service ok. Very busy so staff stretched. Got everything we wanted but not as attentive as they would have liked. Overall pleased.

Clearly very popular place with people queuing to get in.....But, the food was average and the service poor. The owners are milking it with tables offered that had waiters and customers passing so close that they could have been eating and breathing with you. Pity, as I like Greek food.

Not your typical Greek food. Each dish was a variant of the standard fair and each was excellent. We got to this very popular restaurant at 6:00PM and that would be a smart move. By 7:30 when we left, there was probably a 90 minute wait. For me, no restaurant is worth more than a 30 minute wait. The service... More

Greek Island is always our first stop directly from the airport. I have brought all are visitors here and it's now their favorite restaurant. The service is excellent.
