Good menu with a nice variety of standard diner fare mixed with local specialties and, of course, Greek selections. Service was pretty good, and so was the food...but the French fries, while fresh not frozen, had an auspicious start doomed by not getting to the table while still hot. Deserts were where they fell flat. The lemon blueberry bread pudding...dryish... More

I had coffee and dessert there while visiting with a friend. I have frequented this dinner for lunch and dinner on numerous occasions when I lived in the area. The food, service, cleanliness and atmosphere are incredible. This place has the most amazing crab cakes I've ever tasted, which is quite surprising for a small dinner. The larger sea food... More

Greek music was playing in the backround. Greek specialities were offered as well as other ;diner / comfort foods. Great neon lights on its exterior too!

This place is not worth a... More

We vacationed in the DC area in late March with friends & had dinner at Plato’s one evening. This is a Greek Diner near the U of Maryland Campus in College Park & the students are probably its main customer base. It is clean with plain décor which is somewhat dated. The service was very good & the food was... More

The food was great! They had a nice selection to choose from, and breakfast is served all day. The service was quick, and staff was very attentive. We will definitely go back!

I went back for the first time in two years and liked the experience. I/We went here all the time until we had a rotten, rotten, rotten experience. I decided to go back and that was a good idea. I hope to up the stars soon. If you do go, the greek fare and the Maryland crab soup are the... More

Had the pork chops... Dry and tin.... Perhaps they should stick with the traditional items like gyros

Typical Greek joint, however they seem to use a better quality of food. The portions were for the obese people and prices could be lower if they did give proper potions. Food was very good and above the norm. Worth a trip for something easy. Decor is substandard and cheap. Cleanliness is there, but not detailed at all. They provide... More
