Food and service here are very good. Spinach pie portion could be larger. They do have some good lunch specials.

We ate lunch here on the shaded deck and were allowed to have our pet with us. He was treated to a bowl of ice water upon seating. We were treated to really great Greek food. The salad were fabulous with delicious feta, anchovies, olives and peppers. The gyros were great too. Our server was attentive and the food was... More

Instead of having someone give out coupons and promote Mama's on Dodecanese Blvd., they should have that person in the restaurant actually helping customers. This guy handed us a coupon, so we went - and waited... and waited... and waited. Finally, after being ignored for more than 15 minutes (the restaurant was about 60% full), we left. Had a great...

This is a difficult restaurant to find because it is inside a courtyard of shops within a tightly compressed Greek community of about 10 city blocks with a waterfront that boasts a history of Sponge Divers. Your persistence will pay off for you when you order anything from their menu. Be prepared to either hoof it on foot or be... More

We love eating at mama's. This time we ordered the food to go since they kids weren't feeling well. Their dolmades are worth the visit alone (we like ours with lemon wedges instead of the sauce.) Their gyro meal is fantastic also but should come with more sauce. The family size greek salad is fantastic. Highly recommend.

Everything was "just ok." Cousin and I got gyros, and uncle got a hamburger. The bread was just ok too (served with butter). Salad was ok too. We got the $9.95 lunch special. We also ordered the saganaki, which was decent. Will try a different restaurant next time in Tarpon Springs. Nothing in the restaurant gave me a "wow" factor.... More

Not very good. My family and I have been coming to Tarpon Springs since 1980 and have always had great Greek food from a few of the restaurants there…Hella's is our favorite of course….This past Friday 3-14-14, Hella's was packed @7pm and we were all starving…we decided to walk the strip and go to Myknos or one of the other...

Service was poor, understaffed. Food was adequate, but in this area, we expected much better Greek. Rice pilaf had crusty bites. Don't get the "spaghetti" pork. Ok for tourist trap restaurant but not if you're looking for a great Greek cuisine experience.

My husband lives in Greece and I had visited twice. We love Greek food. Happy to find this cute town on our trip from Michigan. We had a nice seat on the patio. Biggest complaint is about the service. Very unpleasant. My husband kept reassuring me that that is what Greeks do..but we are not in Greece and I expect... More
