OK Greek Food, friendly management and staff

We went for lunch recently. I had the grilled octopus with lemon potatoes and my wife went for the giro. The octopus was very good. If octopus isn't fresh, it is mushy and not flavorful. This wasn't the case here. The lemon potatoes were just like my mother's. The gyro was also quite good but not... read more

My wife ordered a filet of sole. When the fish came out, it was full of bones. My wife realized this when she choked on one. When we told the waitress, she went to speak with the owner. He told us that he gets the fish already filleted and therefore it's not his fault. He never offered to remove the... More

Went for lunch on a Saturday afternoon and ordered off the lunch menu. Hubby & I both had the chicken stuffed with spinach & feta cheese topped with a lemon sauce. It was wonderful! It came with lemon roasted potatoes and a small Greek salad. Hubby also ordered Greek Mythos beer which he enjoyed. The meal portion was large and... More

My favorite dish here is Chicken on top of the greek salad $16. tax included. Butter beans are fantastic. Also good are lemon potatoes. This is a casual restaurant not fancy and the prices are not fancy high either. Real food and delic.

Had lunch there this week. Had never written a review before so my bad. I love this place and the owners are great. Good portions, always fresh and always prepared just right. Have catered several parties from them and the guests always love it. I highly recommend this place and will continue to go there.

Visited again with the Groupon and was disappointed. My friend really likes it here, so I wanted to give them another shot. The chicken sliders appetizer was good. The Greek salad was shredded iceberg and had no onions! The souvlaki chicken was weird...had a grizzly coating on it. I ordered an unsweetened iced tea and it tasted very strange, I... More

Great authentic greek restaurant with great food. The clams appetizer is great. The koto Ala mykonos is a chicken dish that is delicious, try the lemon potatoes, i didn't think I'd like them, but ended up loving them. The octopus is great. The soups are usually very good. The salad is good but made with shredded lettuce so it depends... More
