One of our go-to diners in the area where we live. Huge menu selection. We've always had good food with extra to take home as the portions are ample. Flavor is above average and I've never really been disappointed whether I had seafood, chicken, pasta, turkey, full dinner with salad bar, or a sandwich and soup. Wait staff knows their... More

I have been to the Acropolis on several occasions and have been happy with everything I have had. The service has always been great. There seem to be a lot of regular customers there which says a lot about the place.

The owner is an aggressive man who doesn't accept complaints. I substituted a side for another but got charged for both. When I brought it up to the manager he started off arguing aggressively and challenging me if I know the prices. The environment is tacky, and tables are sticky and gross. If you want cheap food for not so... More

My dinner companion chose this dinner over one that she felt was overpriced. She chose a booth near the salad bar. Unfortunately I am stout and the space between the seat and the table was a tight fit. My dinner companion found the salad bar very attractive but I was disappointed in the tiny size of the salad shrimp and... More

Many years ago (and I do mean many), when I attended the local college in the area, my friends and I used to eat at the Diner for late (and I do mean late) night meals. I knew it then as 'the all-night diner,' and not by its proper name. This past week, while touring the college with my youngest... More

Continued repeat business and loyalty mean nothing to the owners. Save your money and eat anywhere else!

Stopped here for a bit to eat after a show at The Chance venue. Staff was nice, food was pretty good. Probably would skip it the next time I'm in Poughkeepsie.

ZERO STARS if possible. Awful. My son contracted food poisoning after eating their chili this past Saturday night. Vomiting and diarrhea for 8 straight hours, cramping and fatigue has not yet left him. He missed performing in his Sunday matinee because of the food. Diner manager suggested he might be allergic to chili....brilliant. The Health Department is now investigating. DO... More
