Good place with a nice laid back environment.

Volta Tavern is a Greek restaurant converted from what I believe is an old vehicle repair store. During pleasant weather they sometimes open the bay doors for a more open air dining experience.

Portions small, quality retched, and it is not a Greek Taverna but a noisy local watering hole serving pizzas, wraps, beer, cocktails, and other alcohol beverages. Parking limited. They do not accept Discover Cards

Volta has great green inspired food. Their pizza and gyros are good and the atmosphere is fun with outdoor dining. Their beer selection is pretty good with many beers brewed in state or from other craft brewers. We will definitely be back soon.

Was very impressed by Volta. Started with the Hotty Toddy Balls. They were excellent. Ordered the Volta house pizza for dinner. Toppings were plentiful and fresh. Will be back!

Perfect casual dining for the summer. The porch is beautiful and the food reminds me of large post summer swim meals of my childhood.

This place is an excellent Greek restaurant! My husband and I shared a large Walnut and Goat Cheese Salad as an appetizer. Then he ordered the Souvlaki Wrap with Sweet Potato Fries, and I ordered the Spicy Grilled Shrimp Wrap with Homemade Potato Chips. Both entrees were excellent! Then for dessert we shared the Chocolate Chip Kaluha Bread Pudding and... More

Volta Taverna is great for Greek food and pizza made using pita loafs. We had Beef and Lamb Gyros, Mozzarela Pitta Melt, Personal size Pizza, and Lemon Chicken Wraps. All was great and easy to eat even by the youngest. The cheese fries were a little "over cheesed," however. I guess we like the Parmesan Fries in another restaurant or... More

Thank you for your review. It seems like you had a chance to try a bunch of different items on our menu. I love hearing reviews when people get the chance to try a variety of items. Please mention to your server that you would like less cheese on your cheese fries the next time, and we will make sure... More

Volta has a wonderful, fresh Greek salad! The spicy shrimp wrap is filling, tasty, but not too heavy! Dining outside is pleasant if the weather is nice! The hummus is fantastic!

Thank you for taking the time to give us a great review! The shrimp wrap is a great wrap for the summer since it's light yet spicy. I'm please to hear that you enjoyed our hummus as well. It's one of my favorites. We hope to see you again soon! More

Volta Taverna is such a delicious place to eat!! Whether you sit at the bar or on the really fun deck, you always get great service. The gyro is one of my favorites, along with the Greek Salad, the hummus, the Chicken Souvlaki, and of course, the margaritas! It's ALL good at Volta!!!
