The Community has been around for at least the 60 years I have been breathing and most likely long before. I often ate lunch there as a teenager and loved their BLT sandwiches. The food was never stellar but always good and fresh. That has not changed although they have expanded into the neighboring business and the menu has likely... More

Step back in time to the '50s & enjoy eating in beautiful hardwood booths. The food is down home cooking, with excellent greek specialties. Breakfast is a real treat w/ a wide variety omelettes, home fries, & toast. Family friendly dining that meets the tastes of young & old alike.

My family dined here for Thanksgiving. It's been a while since our last visit and I must admit the updates to their interior has elevated The Community to a whole new level. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for their food. Ever since the brothers have taken over the kitchen has gone downhill. If its possible to fire the cook... More

We had a wonderful lunch at the Community Restaurant on Friday. The selection was great and prices very reasonable. Two of us had the fish sandwich with macaroni & cheese side. The fish was the size of most fish dinners. I also had potato soup which was just the right consistency. My hubby had the bacon cheeseburger which came with... More

Wide, varied menu (Greek, Italian, American), all kinds of foods, owned by a young Greek man (handsome, too), great low prices, everything cooked to order. Exceptional quality and price for value. You can't go wrong here! Something for EVERYONE

Think of a price that you think you would expect to pay for a cup of coffee at an International Airport and you may be close to what you actually pay for one at the Community Restaurant. $3.00 without an airplane in sight or sound of you. One better have more than $20 on their person if they want coffee... More

On a recommendation of a colleague, I stopped in here after work for dinner. It was middle of the week so it wasn't crowded. They have a small bar with seating both at the bar and at a few tables. There's also a dining room in the rear. I sat at a table in the bar. The place was clean,... More

Ordered a seafood dish that was 24.00 and online menu was 16.95. They said other seafood would be in it and it was not ! I guess seafood is so expensive they have to cut corners lol !!!

One traditional gyro was enough for lunch for my husband and me. He also had some soup. Unfortunately, they were out of baklava. Pleasant service and surroundings. Worth a stop.
