Huge place with delicious Greek dishes full of original taste! Great atmosphere, very good food and the service is fast and polite! Been a Greek myself, ordered some well known dishes and tried some that our great server Stavros proposed. All were delicious and came with huge portions! Try many of them and don't focus on one main course. Greek... More

Delicious Greek food here! Visit the restaurant for business lunch with a prospective client. Thank you for the food as it helps me build good report with the prospective client. I ordered the Gyros; it taste amazing! There was one thing about the service though. The waiter gave us the receipt without our request as if he was trying to... More

I visit my BFF every year in Chicago and we have make dinner in Greek Town the night I depart, a tradition. You will hear "Opa !" several times during your meal here. We always order the same dishes so I can't comment on many items. The bread is good & hearty. The lemon soup, mild. The calamari and octopus... More

Greek Islands is my favorite Greek Town restaurant, and there quite a few to chose from on Halsted Street. The menu is diverse containing traditional Greek fare of roasted lamb, pork, chicken and beef dishes as well as vegetarian choices such as spanakopita, tiropita, moussaka, saganaki, etc. The quality is good. The portions are generous. The service is excellent with... More

We go to Greece every other year and this is the next best thing and is closer. I love the village salad and generally order it with fish while my wife prefers chicken or pork. I also love the Greek beer that is available. Service has always been good and portions are generous. I love the lively atmosphere and feeling... More

Due to pure coincidence, I went with different family members to Rodity's and Greek Islands - a few doors down. I liked Rodity's slightly more. Both were very good and you can't go wrong with either one. Had lamb chops and calamari for appetizer. The chops were great. Calamari was ok. Service was also ok. It's a large place but... More

Loud but lively, well attended, decent wine list, good service but the food was nothing special. I ordered one the daily specials, the Greek sausage on a pita. Both broiled. No sauce, no condiment. The flavor was ok but really nothing special and kind of boring. My partner had the mousaka. Ours is better at home. This was pretty disappointing... More

Perfect stop for a mid afternoon lunch. Great service and great food! The waiter was extremely nice and went above and beyond to make sure we had a good meal. Will definitely go back again.
