Nice restaurant on the water. Nice atmosphere inside, not as touristy as some of the other local places. Great happy hour drink specials. Friendly staff. We just stopped in for a drink but the food looked amazing. We were disappointed we had already eaten at another restaurant.

After dining at another restaurant, as we were strolling the sponge docks, we popped into Dimitri's to peek at their menu and decided to return the following day for lunch. We found the food to be average, not really good and not really bad. In another place we may have rated it higher but there are so many really good... More

The only CIA trained chef on the docks and the training shows The food is really well prepared. The only down side is that the noise level can get a little bit too high when they are very busy. Magically they seem to be able to seat everyone so that they have a view of the water.. highly recommend the... More

We stopped at Dimitri's for lunch while visiting Tarpon Springs. Uncertain if we wanted to have lunch there, Nick, the proprietor, assured us we would be happy so we went in. Our server Steven was animated & caring. We ordered Saganaki for an appetizer. A must if you enjoy cheese. It's a flaming sheep milk cheese served with homemade breads.... More

My wife and I met friends at Dimitri's yesterday, a place we've gone to several times with mixed results. The waiter and I had a misunderstanding on my order, I ordered a fish gyro, as I don't eat meat, and he brought me a regular gyro. He was adamant that I had ordered this meat dish and finally, to avoid... More

We only stopped here for a snack. Got an excellent table at the water, and ordered two beers and an appetizer. The appetizer was a mixture of Feta, Ricotta, Olive Oil, and Jalapeños. It was excellent, and the beer was cold too. We'll come back here again for a full meal.

We just picked this restaurant a random and are glad we did. The staff was great, food was fantastic, and the location/view was beautiful. My wife said here scallops were the best ever and my peel and eat shrimp were among the best. The water was one of the nicest we have ever had too. And they had my favorite... More

Had some delicious grilled octopus! Great owner and staff. Stopped in for a late lunch in my Coast Guard Auxiliary uniform as I was at a National Safe Boating Week display on the Sponge Docks and was treated like royalty. You won't be disappointed.

We took the family and kids on the spongeboat tour next door, after the tour we stopped in for dinner, this place is right on the water, with boats going by, it is a mix of greek food and seafood, the octopus was great and we even ordered the flaming cheese. Good food, and service.
