I ate several meals here and the service is great with a real family attitude from the servers. The Norwegian salmon and stuffed flounder florentine were very good with huge portions of everything. The Greek dishes are good with my favorite being the Spanakopita (spinach pie). I'm not a big dessert eater, but if you are, I've never seen a... More

Dropped in at midnight on a Sunday after many, many hours on the road on the way to FLA. Place was hopping with all types of folks and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. Our party had both breakfast items and dinner fare, and all of it was good. Home fries (hash browns with onions, peppers and tomatoes) were great.... More

We liked our first visit so much we went back for a second visit and everything was good. The service was fast, food was hot and tasty. If you are on a diet this might not be the place for you. They have T.V's constantly showing their hugmonous cakes and you have to walk in and pay at the display... More

We came in this restaurant by the recommendation of a friend and we were NOT disappointed. It was our intention to have brunch, but I'll be honest.... I picked at my breakfast so that I could justify eating CAKE! So many cakes.... pies, cannolis... I mean.... I felt like a fat kid in candyland. No one told me this restaurant... More

The décor and menu are reminiscent of the large (usually Greek owned) diners you find in New York City or surrounding areas. The menu is varied enough that everyone in your party should find something to eat, the portions are ridiculously large (no one in our party of 4 was able to finish the meal) and the food was well...

Maybe we ordered the wrong things, but this place was good, not great. We had the spinach pie and the turkey club sandwich. The sandwich was great. The Spinach Pie was not very good. The picture in the menu looked very thin and crispy, but the actually thing was too thick. It was over an inch thick and basically all... More

Friendly staff and huge portions. Unfortunately, it was a huge portion dry, overcooked steak and cold, undercooked broccoli. Had to wait more than 10 minutes for something from the bar, twice. By the time we were half way through the meal, all drinks were empty and stayed that way. Had to ask the manager for the check as he flew... More

This restaurant is open 24 hrs. They have a full menu anytime. There was a little bit of a wait but the food is very good and so is the service. Worth the wait.
