The other night we decided to pick up some Greek food for dinner. As usual "It's Greek to me" was our restaurant of choice. There are other Greek restaurants in the area, however, we have found the food here to be outstanding and have not sampled the others. We believe you don't mess with perfection and if it ain't broke... More

Decent Greek comfort food great portions! Staff very accommodating and pleasant. We had a stroller situation and were graciously whisked to a cozy corner near a potted palm. Grateful for the hospitality after a long day!

I was so disappointed with this place. I am a greek food lover and was unhappy with the seafood mixed grill. No flavor, and the squid was very rubbery and tough. The lamb gyro doesn't come with any lettuce on it just onions and tomatoes. The staff was great though.

Thanks to a fellow trip advisor ,my wife and I ate lunch here after a great day at the beach I ordered the grill octopus. It was grilled to perfection.The peppers and onions were sweet and blended nicely with the octopus. The lamb gyro was full of meat and the sauce was light and didn't have an after taste. My... More

If you like greek food, this restaurant is pretty authentic and delicious. It is very reasonably priced as well, and they serve large bountiful portions. Great for lunch or dinner

Spending the weekend with my sister-in-law, brother and their 3 kids. We stopped in Long Branch for some pictures and lunch. We walked into It's Greek to Me, not being greeted in the most pleasant way. Needing 3 high chairs, the waitress just stared at us like we were crazy and was not being accommodating. After having repeated we needed... More

My husband and I wanted to try a little different food for lunch. We ordered the Calamari and the grilled octopus. The calamari was chewy and overcooked but the grilled octopus was excellent. The décor could be cleaned up, as well as the bathrooms (eww).

My wife and I couldn't believe the quick service with the place being so crowded. We sat outside. The food was very authentic and delicious. I had a tasty gyro and we shared the Greek sampler, leaving the plate clean. All at a very reasonable cost given the price gouging in the area. I wish this great Greek fast food... More

Ingredients are fresh, atmosphere light and convenient in the shopping section of fun Long Branch. Love the Greek salad and dolmas. Plenty of hot Pisa and yummy hummus. Gyros are delicious and mosakka authentic.

Hands down some of the best Greek food we have ever had. The service was excellent and the coffee unparalleled. Try the gyro, Greek salad, and lamb. All amazing and delicious. We finished off with the custard/pastry dessert (I can't remember the name). Absolutely divine.
