Great Greek food and atmosphere

I have been here several times and it always is a treat!! Not only will you find great Greek cuisine but also the service is always top notch and their ongoing celebrations throughout the night really add to a great atmosphere.

Went there today after a neighbor told us the Acropolis in Ybor City was a lot of fun and this is the same owner just a different location. We knew there would not be any of the entertainment like they have a night but just wanted to try the food at lunch. There were 5 of us. Service was OK.... More

My wife and I went to the Acropolis Bar and Grill last night, mostly because it was near our hotel and Greek. We had a great time. The food was really good and their Ouzo was, too. (They had Athena Ouzo, which is unusual for most American Greek restaurants - much better than Ouzo 12 or Metaxa.) The service was... More

Been there 2-3 times. Looks like a nice place. Friendly staff, decent food. But what I came away with was disappointment. The beers are small but full priced, and there are gnats around the tables, not just on one occasion but all three. Bottom line: there are better places.

The Acropolis was a decent restaurant, but I was certainly expecting more. The cost of the food was agreeable, a little above average cost. The decor and lighting were nice. The saganaki was a disappointment...I'm used to having the dish flambee'd with brandy whereas they (to my taste of the flavor) used a lighting solution or the pan used was... More

This restaurant is definitely hopping! We went there in October of 2013 and again in June 2014 for my B-day. It is a fun night out for Greek cuisine. On Saturday nights of the week they have belly dancers. They always have the staff do a Greek dance with throwing of the napkins -OPA!! They offer a Hookah bar for... More

Saturdays are great. The belly dancers along with greek music and napkins being thrown everywhere makes for a fun experience. The food is excellent and very affordable. I love the bread with the dip and the salmon salad is amazing. Everything I have ever ordered has been excellent. If you want to sit outside they have a great area that... More

While traveling I experienced my first visit to a Greek restaurant, overall it was a good experience with one exception, we ordered the Mixed Grill with Lamb Chops, kabobs of Chicken, Greek Meatballs and Souvlaki and a side of Spinach Orzo and Greek Salad. The one problem was the Chicken must have been cook for a LONG time; it was... More

The food here is always good, and they have 2-for-1 Sangria all day. I usually get the vegetarian mousaka, but I have had other dishes and have never been disappointed. The atmosphere is loud inside with a live sitar player, belly dancer, and staff dancing around sometimes. Not good if you want to have conversation. There is a seating area... More
