We were staying in East Marion a few weeks ago and everyone said we must go here, so we did. Good traditional Greek food. There was a lot to chose from. Not the best Greek salad I've had, just different from what I'm used to. Our entrees were delicious. A little pricey but portions were big. Service was very good... More

We were traveling west on the Main Road into the Riverhead vicinity. We stayed overnight in Greenport and were hungry. We found this delightful Greek restaurant close by. We tried the wine flights of LI wines. Some of the local wines were really good. I had the a lamb stew and my wife had the moussaka. I thought the lamb... More

We're so glad you found us while you were passing through! It was a pleasure to meet you. I appreciate your honest feedback about the béchamel -- we don't usually hear that, but I'll be sure to discuss it with the kitchen. Consistency is one of our top priorities (pardon the pun). Hope to see you on a future trip!... More

I have been coming to this restaurant since I was a child. Now I take my grandchildren! Always consistent, always delicious! The homemade lemonade is a must!

Came here for the rave reviews with 2 little girls. The food was HORRENDOUS. The worst Greek food I have ever tasted, The Greek Salad was just lettuce with feta and a few huge pieces of feta with a couple of huge pieces of tomato. The dressing was OILY and gross. The kids ordered chicken fingers that you have to... More

Giving a shout out to Hellenic's for their most amazing blueberry pancakes! (Wish we could find pancakes like this in Central Texas. . . . . . ) You're thinking, "Blueberry pancakes at a Greek restaurant?" You bet! They offer a wonderful breakfast selection.....try the French toast --it's amazing, too. Each year when my husband and I head to my... More

After coming from the ferry at orient Point, we hoped to find a place for dinner, even though it was almost 10 pm. We went in and asked if we could be served. The owner was in and said we could have a seat for dinner. This was a Sat. evening and they were almost ready to close. The staff... More

It's been a long time since I had eaten anything from this restaurant. Actually for years all I ever ordered was the gyro to take out. But just recently I decided to actually sit down and eat there and order something different on the menu. As soon as my friend and I got there we felt uncomfortable. The place was... More

Knowing what went wrong does not make up for your negative experience. We were packed on that Monday. You must have dined inside or after the rush. A hostess had an emergency and could not come in. I called my wife to come help out, and the waitress who served you, probably had a Russian accent. She was a new... More

Stopped here with our family of 6 during our day out on the North Fork. We'd been here before and enjoy the food. However, I am writing this review based on our dissatisfaction with the management. My son's GF ordered a salad and specifically asked for "no celery". The salad came and there was celery (just like the last time... More

Danielle, what you experienced is NOT our policy at all. I am concerned because new hires often do not grasp policy right away. I assure you that the message you received was not from a manager. I am the owner and if you were here, it is unlikely that I was not here at the same time also, and me... More

I went to this place last month and had Greek food for the first time. I have to say that was the best experience for the first time ever. Not only the food was good, the environment and the people are very nice and welcoming also. It was busy at the time I went to visit (on a week day)... More

I really enjoyed my food and service at The Hellenic Snack bar and Restaurant. I felt like family while I was there, getting to know George, and his wonderful parents and family.
