Authentic Greek food

This restaurant is located right in Greektown within walking distance from Greektown casino. You can watch the cooks while they prepare food in a small kitchen. Restaurant is small and not fancy.. Be sure to look up to see cool tin ceiling. Food was good and served hot. Service was friendly and... read more

We were visiting the casino and decided to have dinner here. It is a very small, cozy place. The service was very good and the food was decent. I had a gyro and a beer. I am glad I didn't see the meat going around and around on the spigot in the front before I ate. My husband said they... More

There's a few other more upscale Greek restaurants in Detroit but you can't top Golden Fleece in terms of quality and value. The food is fabulous and one of my favorite places to eat! Their spanakopita is the best I've ever had and the kabobs are really juicy and spiced perfectly. They make everything there and it's charming little place.... More

We came here on a bopping Thanksgiving Eve, and had as much fun eating as we did enjoying the atmosphere. Our first time here, so to paraphrase...."When in Athens, do as the Athenians do". We started with some Greek beer, which was ok, but tasted very much like Heiniken. Then our appy was Opa! You have to get the Opa!... More

Between myself & the four other people I was with we had four different entrees plus two appetizers & nothing disappointed. Each menu item we tasted was delicious with an almost homemade flavor. Our waitress was also wonderful, giving us recommendations for food & drink & even bringing my brother a new beer because his tasted quite skunky. Overall, a... More

We had some flaming sausage, and it was delicious! I had the spanikopita and it was good, it had a relish like taste to it, that I was not used to ( not a fan of relish) , but overall it was pretty good. Our server was very knowlegable about Greek food. It is right in the heart of Greek... More

I wandered around downtown looking for a easy place to eat and ended up here. It's a very casual restaurant not at all fancy. I ordered a gyro. It was perfect. Lot's of meet, cooked correctly. I left full. Lunch or dinner if you are looking for good food, good portion, and a relax place, come here.

Friendly staff and attentive service. Food was accurately described on the menu, and server made recommendations when I asked. Tasty and very large portions - if you're local, there's enough to take home half. This is home cooking - not gourmet.

I have been coming here for 40 + years! It is the best gyros around. The atmosphere is kinda how I imagine a diner in Greece would be. The decor is nothing to write home about, but that is not why I go back. Flaming cheese is great too! I enjoy introducing my friends and family to Golden Fleece every... More
