This is not a quiet sit down. This is the place you go to be loud and enjoy good company. The wait staff was excellent. They were able to seat a rather large group quickly. The food was filling and good, not the best Greek I have ever had, but good. I would suggest anyone to try it, just don't... More

Acropolis is a good restaurant to go out with your friends and family and enjoy a delicious Mediterranean cuisine. But, its not only the food that makes this restaurant also the atmosphere, all the waiters dance around the restaurant in traditional Greek and Middle Eastern dance, there's also belly dancers and hookah to enjoy after a delicious gyro or kibbeh....

Acropolis is a casual greek restaurant with both indoor and outdoor seating. They have very good greek food and a decent beer wine and sangria selection. They have a good happy hour from 5-7. Overall the food is decent with a large variety to choose from

My wife and I recently visited for lunch with my always impossible to please mother. We left very pleased with everything about our visit. Our waitress understood the difficulty of pleasing my mother and was very patient and understanding. Food was very good, the restaurant looks nice, and lunch prices are very reasonable.

This Greek restaurant has a large dining area with additional seating outdoors. It underwent a redecoration with mixed results. The food is average Greek food, the service leaves a lot to be desired (mostly attractive looking college age kids who would rather be somewhere else) and the bar staff especially is less than attentive. The staff dances in a conga... More

We go there every time we are in the area. The food is excellent. They have the best sangria I have ever tasted. We had really great service and of course there's the floor show, with dancing, napkins, and plate breaking. Always a fun time!

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
