The signage and outward appearance makes you believe it is a restaurant that has seen its better day, but don’t let it fool you. The food is great, and the service friendly. We ate an early dinner prior to going to a Tigers game. It was about 4 PM on a Friday and we had no problem being seated. Our... More

We have been going to the Golden Fleece for years. It is a very small place. If you sit at the counter you can watch your food be prepared. The food is excellent. The price is right! The wait staff is friendly and appear to enjoy each other. Our waiter took us upstairs to see their remodeled roof top bar... More

Wow, what a surprise. The quality of the food was amazing and better than other Greek places that charge twice as much! I highly recommend the Gyros plate and the Opah! The lunch crowd was huge so we knew it had to be good.

My family has only tried a couple of the many Greek restaurants on the strip because we go back to Golden Fleece every time we're down there now. My husband is all about the original gyros while I'm incredibly impressed with the chicken ones. Last time we went, I wasn't too hungry so I just got a side of rice,... More

I had a friend introduce me to this restaurant when we were in high school, which was 30+ years ago. The same family still owns and operates the restaurant today. A great place and a great value. OPAH !!!!

We grabbed gyros to go and we were completely floored about how fantastic they were. Having traveled many places for work and had our share of average Greek food it was awesome to find this little restaurant. This place is definitely on our list to return to. Reasonable pricing as well.

Small and cute restaurant with authentic food, reasonable prices and menu. The gyros are big and good but the meat was a little dry for my liking. The atmosphere was good and the waitress was also good.

It didn't look like much from the outside, but the food was fantastic. Give it a try, you won't be sorry.

Tried to order lamb shank ... Not available, they apparently only make it over Easter??? Weird ... It is Easter now....I did not even mention that to the waitress. Clueless. We order rice ... we got pre-cooked frozen fries. Yuk. Tried to order rice pudding. Nope. Not available. Ordered Baklava. DISGUSTING. They served it heated up in a micro-wave. Give... More
