We ended up making reservations here for lunch after graduation ceremony at USF. We (party of 8) got seated promptly and ordered drinks while making choices from the menu. We requested water also for all of our party. My iced tea was luke warm and water was brought out in what reminded me of a wine bottles.. You can imagine... More

My wife and I have driven by the Acropolis on Bruce B Downs for years but had to give it a try. We were very pleased. The staff was very friendly. We took advantage of the opportunity to eat outside which was a treat. The drink prices were very reasonable compared to most places. The food came out hot and... More

Very good and authentic food for a fair price and a guaranteed good time. My wife and I seldom get past the appetizer samplers as they are large and filling. Thay also allow substitutions on the sampler if an item is not one you care for. Also, the Greek salad with gyro meat is more than one person can eat... More

Had to bring food back for 10 family at a local hotel. Acropolis not only had great food but also a catering menu that was a cost-effective option for the group. We sat at the bar and sipped wine while they prepared our order. it was perfect.

We were told about this place by the front desk ladies at the Holiday Inn Express we were staying at. Wish we would have been sooner! We could have been for dinner every night. The food,staff,entertainment and desserts were all fabulous! This is going to be added to our must do's when we are in the area again.

Great first time visit with family from NY in Tampa for business and daughter in Tampa. Truly Greek restaurant not Greek-Italian, not that there's necessarily anything wrong with that. Authentic greek dishes and spices. Great feta. Nice portions. Gyros, platters chicken and meatball dinners very good. Decent greek wines. Beyond baklava Desserts like tuxedo and Vesuvius, original, excellent, not too... More

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....
