The food, the service, the view. Greek owned but not a "Greek Restaurant" only. Food is great, Greek offers plus many others including those they have invented themselves. We make it a habit to stop here every time we are in Rochester. There is a very tall waiter who waits on us the last few time we are there -... More

Huge menu, a lot of dishes are Greek themed. Food is good, think of comfort food. Prices ok. Place is clean and comfortable.

Had breakfast here and it was the best meal for our entire stay in Rochester. Eggs were delicious. Ricotta pancakes really yummy.

I love the greek salad and the toasted pita bread. Laid back diner type of place with good prices and decent food when you want something quick. Decent pancakes too - they have good breakfasts.

I found the food at this place to be very average. Not bad by any means but it didn't excite me. Service was similar, OK.

I visit Mac's occasionally with a colleague who likes the place. Mac's suffers from the most consistently terrible service of anywhere in town. The food is usually a bit below average, but on our most recent trip I ordered the Spanakopita: it was disgusting. Not just bad, horrific. I don't think I found any feta at all, just a greasy...

If you want a good, simple meal with no fuss, this is the place. I have eaten here several times. The food and service are consistently good.

my last dinning experience was disappointing, higher prices and fewer desert choices. Portions were also smaller than usual. I invited a friend and felt embarrassed that I recommended it.
