Rude waitress but good food

If it hadn't been for a very forward woman grabbing people off the sidewalk, we would never have know this eatery existed. It's really hidden in a maze of shops. Her tactics worked because it did not take long for the place to fill up. The food was good, but our waitress was very impatient and... read more

While visiting tarpon springs we enjoyed our lunch most at this restaurant Mama's. It is not fancy place, but food atmosphere and the music gives a joyful unique experience. The lunch special was wonderful. I had the fired cod and a Greek salad. I highly recommend it!

I can't recommend the restaurant Mama's in the Sponge Docks on the basis of their grilled octopus. I've eaten it many times in the past, and thought it didn't smell too fresh when it was served. I ate some of one piece that tasted ok, though pretty tough and not as fresh as one would like. I mentioned this to... More

When first entering we seemed like we were intruding -- the hostess are rude or perhaps indifferent might be a better word. Our great service said the hostess's attitude "is a Greek thing". I don't know about that but the food was above average and the service was excellent. They have several rooms including both a no pets and a... More

Stopped for lunch on Tuesday January 26, 2016. This was my second time there. Both time I got the gyro and Greek salad. The gyro is an excellent sandwich. I can't get enough. The Greek salad has potato salad on the bottom. Always good. Can't wait to go back.

Visiting Tarpon Springs, we came through the small but interesting tourist area in town center. A woman was handing out vouchers for food and/or drink specials. Just off of town center, it is very easy to find. It is called "Mama's Greek Cuisine." A lunch special was our fare, consisting of meals like: chicken souvlaki, fish, gyros etc.....not your ordinary... More

First time trying Greek food and it did not disappoint. Had the lemon chicken soup with Spanokopita and it was a great light lunch. Also enjoyed the complimentary dessert, a rice custard wrapped in phyllo. Very good and a nice wait staff too.

We had a lunch special. I had a combo of Greek food, was pretty good. My husband had seafood pasta, he like his better than I liked mine. We had beer that was 2 for 1. I was suppose to get dessert with my meal (lunch special), but I had to ask for it. Waitress was a little put out... More

We went to Mama's tonight after wandering around the Spongedocks and getting a coupon for a free saganaki. I checked out the reviews on trip advisor, and truly there are A LOT of greek restaurants to choose from inTarpon Springs. Well I think of myself as a bit of a foodie, so I was eager to try out the food... More
