Oh, so many choices and all of it wonderful! Local friend introduced us to the place and it is a little off the main drag that they have been going to for years. Everything we had was wonderful, especially the lamb dishes. Good value. No reservations on weekends so plan on visiting the bar. 30 minutes wait on a busy... More

We went to this restaurant with a group of 7 friends. My husband and I both ordered the sampler platter. We loved everything on our plates. Apparently, we were not the only ones that loved this restaurant. We went there on a Tuesday night and the place was packed.

For an incredible dining experience and great Greek food, Greek Islands is a MUST. My grandpa is Greek and this is his favorite spot for Greek food in Chicago. So we took him here recently for dinner. The menu is extensive, almost as extensive as the interior of the restaurant, with multiple dining rooms, a bar, different levels, etc. It's... More

When in Chicago, we have been going to the Greek Islands for decades and being 100% Greek, I think that the food is truly authentic. The huge menu will satisfy any tastes but the lamb chops are exceptional. We had a party of 30 and they have 4 rooms. We were in the largest, noisiest and most fun room and... More

Don't miss this restaurant if you love Greek food. Great atmosphere, I felt like I was in Greece. Request a table where you can watch them preparing food in their open kitchen.

I've been to the restaurant before when in Chicago for business but it's been about five years. Atmosphere has remained the same with several different dining rooms with most crowded and loud. Ordered the flaming saganaki cheese for an appetizer which is a thin square of warm Greek cheese served on an extremely hot cast iron dish. Upon reaching your... More

We've been to this place many many times now and keep forgetting to write a review. The food is great and so authentic. We've been to many islands in Greece and can say this is right on target with the food in Greece. The staff is all greek and very friendly. The service is very fast and you never really... More

Given the reviews I expected to be wowed. While delicious and well worth the money there was nothing that truly stood out in our two meals. Again, the food was quite good (she had the sea bass while I had the gyro - we started with the Saganaki)

We enjoyed our meal at Greek Islands but found it to be less authentic and more "Americanized" than some of the other Greek restaurants in the area.
