We like the Acropolis salad quite a bit....comes with gyro meat and potato salad. 2 for 1 sangria is a... read more

This place is awesome! Third time here and will be back many more. Food here has been delicious every single time. The Acropolis salad is HUGE and super yummy. The eggplant app and new cheese feta dip are delicious. Lots of music, smashing plates and dancing. When you hear the music, it's "oh pah" time and the napkins start flying!... More

Be it Father's Day or birthday a large family group will be made welcome by a energetic staff that will dance accompanied by a excellent guitar player and "opa" with an air filled white napkins that float like confetti and made our entire family ready to eat and drink . All the Greek foods are delicious whatever your taste .... More

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.
