I recently took a friend there who had never been before. Although I had been a few times before and remember the food being good, I have to say this time it was exceptional! We had an appetizer and a meal each. I love Octopus and know that if not cooked right it can very quickly turn to rubber. I... More

I appreciated the live music and the bellydancing, but the food was terrible. I ordered the Mahi-mahi but it was like chewing on fishy rubber. When we ordered calamari, it took so long that it was cold when we got it. Also, there were very few pieces of the calamari. I've come to expect more from the chain, as they... More

We were extremely impressed with the quality and the quantity of the food we received at the Acropolis. It was outstanding. We were both so glad we stopped into eat. The beer selection is OK... not huge, but a good variety of styles. I had the salmon sandwich, and the slab of salmon was not expected. Is more of a... More

Friendliness greeted us when we arrived and stayed the entire evening, along with good service. The Eggplant Feta Rolls were delicate with just the right amount of light sauce. The portion of mahi on the Greek Salad was quite large, and we enjoyed a rare treat: Vegetarian Mousaka. (They have the regular meat version as well.) Add to that the... More

We stopped in to the Acropolis before a Tampa Bay Rowdies game. We were seated immediately at 5:30. I chose the Makedonikos, my husband the Acropolis Salad. The server brought us some bread to eat as we were waiting for our entrees. My meal was excellent, a combination of chicken, shrimp, and sausage in a red jambalaya sauce over tender,... More

We stopped here for lunch after visiting a museum in St. Petersburg. We both ordered wraps. Mine was the Athenian wrap which was delicious. My wife ordered the Mediterranean wrap without onions. Since she ordered no onions, they also did not put the onion aioli on the wrap either. She substituted their homemade vinaigrette which was fine. The service was... More

Went here with a group a few weeks ago and enjoyed the atmosphere inside. My family is greek, so we can be picky about our dishes and several of us didn't like ours from what we are used to. I really liked my Souvlaki platter as did my father. You got a lot with it. My husband didn't like his... More

Good atoms feet but again slow bad service. The writer didn't deserve the tip. Will only come back in a small... More

When you walk through the door you are greeted by the pungent smell of cheese. It almost makes you not want to sit down but my girlfriends and I were trying something different. Bad decision. The food made me ill and the only good thing was the belly dancers. I will not return to this place...they need to clean up... More

We went during Happy Hour and I asked for a Mojito, the server asked if I would like to try a coconut water Mojito....OMG! My favorite drink ever! This was my third visit and it have always loved anything I ordered. We all tasted each other's entries and each was as good as the other. There was live music and... More
