THIS IS A REVIEW ABOUT THE WASTEFULNESS HERE... not a commentary on the food... I come to work in St. Petersberg at the children's hospital one-two times a month. I'm also a vegetarian and like the options that this restaurant/mini-chain has to offer. However, I ordered food was very disappointed, not so much with the food, but the gross wastefulness... More

We've been here twice and have not been disappointed. The food is wonderful, and there's a two for one drink special that offers house made sangria or margaritas. Service is great. On the weekends, the wait staff performs a dance several times an evening. There's also a belly dancer who performs twice on Friday and Saturday nights. It's a fun... More

This area has many Greek restaurants and Acropolis is one of the best. It's great for dinner or lunch. And there is outside seating available.

While in Florida for Christmas, I visited with my daughter, sister-in-law, niece and great niece. We went to downtown St. Pete for lunch. As all of us like greek food, we settled on the Acropolis. First thing I saw was that they had Saganaki which is a favorite of mine. No one else had tried it, so I ordered it... More

After our visit to the Florida CraftArt Gallery, we strolled around the corner for a late lunch. As the weather was beautiful, we wanted a place to sit outdoors, and found this yummy place. I had a traditional Greek salad and my husband chose the meatballs...both very good ! Large portions and 2 for 1 happy hour prices on certain... More

The appetizer platter had four dips including hummus and baba ghanoush and I ordered veggies to dip in them. They were incredible and made a great, light lunch.

We stopped for lunch "al fresco" and had 2 margaritas for the price of one ($8 but they were very good). I can highly recommend the greek salad.
