The cleverly named "The Restaurant" (who thinks these things up?) is a flashback to a simpler time. You push a tray along a shelf in front of the open kitchen, ordering from the daily assortment of hot dishes, deli sandwiches, salads, etc. At the end of the line is the beverage cooler and the cashier. The (real) roasted turkey club... More

The Restaurant was average at best. Cafeteria style ordering. They do give you a lot of food for your order. The gyro was very salty, their chicken club had lots of breading, and dry. Our kids had chocolate pancakes which were very good.

Lively atmosphere; cafeteria style. Reuben loaded with delicious, tender, flavorful corn beef. Gyro huge and tasty--not the typical shaved gyro meat.

Saw the great review and had to try "The Restaurant". The place is a little confusing because on one side - you walk in and order your food cafeteria style, then bring it to your table and this menu includes a wider variety with some Greek dishes. I ate at the Bar side, which offers some specials and gave me... More

Sassy cooks, fast service, easy in and easy out. Cafeterias should all be this easy. The food is hot, well prepared, and pretty tasty. I had the gyro over the Greek Salad...in fact I had it twice I liked it so much. I would eat there again

I was here on business trip so we stopped in based on proximity to the hotel. I had the gyros special (dinner). I think the meal was tasty and filling. I should have looked at the picture and read more of the reviews. You walk in and order your food cafeteria style. Pay for it. Then they bring it to... More

I got the Greek salad with gyro beef; it was delicious. The place was crowded, I guess as expected, when I came for lunch on a Wednesday. What I liked is that to order you go through a line and then sit down. Huge menu selection of all variety.

The people working in this restaurant really cannot do enough for you. You're treated like one of the family. The servings are generous. I always take home leftovers. Everything is delicious. The Restaurant has recently added a full bar. The Restaurant is cafeteria style, but servers are available if your meal takes a little longer to cook.

You have a choice at the Restaurant go left when you enter into the Bar if you want waitress service or go right to a spotless stainless steel cafeteria line each side has its own unique menu. I eat here often and I'm never disappointed. They serve a superb breakfast and they know how to cook eggs properly and quickly... More
