We often make a meal of the appetizers like dolmades, hummus, Greek salad, falafel. Avgolemono soup is great, as is the beets skordalia dish. An added bonus is organic eggs at... read more

Thank you for expressing your dissatisfaction. Our salads are always made with the freshest ingredients and always to order. What we never took into consideration is what might happen to the salad once it left the building. Many of our takeout orders are consumed on the ferry. It could be 45 minutes to an hour of non-refrigerated time before a... More

Can't thank you enough for your business over the last few decades -- you've been in it for the long haul, and we wouldn't have been able to do what we love for so long without loyalty like that. Hope you and yours have a wonderful holiday season! Until next time, George at the Hellenic, Owner More

I came here a few years ago and it wasn't particularly good. Recently I was in the area again and thought I would stop by and give them another try. This time the service was slow and the food was awful. I won't be back.

Mr. Manning, I am terribly sorry to hear about your unpleasant experience. Your dissatisfaction is not typical of the dining experience my guests receive. No owner wants to have unsatisfied customers. Could you please help me by letting me know when you dined with us and what you had? Thank you, George Giannaris, owner Hellenic Snack Bar & Restaurant.

The Hellenic Snack Bar is one of my favorite restaurants. My husband and I live about a 30-40 minutes away, but make the drive every few months because me both think they have the best gyros on Long Island.
