This restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside and the inside isn't impressive but the food was wonderful. It is a Mediterranean mix (mostly Italian and Greek) although they serve some American dishes as well. The food was incredible and the servings were plentiful. I got the lasagna and my wife got the Chicken Souvlaki and both were very... More

I went here on a recommendation and it did not disappoint. Form the outside you would blink and miss it in the strip mall. Once inside I was brought back to a delicious time warp and I just knew it would be good. I have had the Gyro Salad and the Gyro player and both were just perfect. My wife... More

We took a chance on this place whilst wondering around Albert docks and I am so glad we did, the staff were a delight and the food was impeccable. Probably the best potatoes I've ever had in my life. Very reasonable pricing. Great views as well

I can't say enough about this restaurant. I have been going here for years and nothing compares to them. This is a family-owned restaurant and everything is made fresh (not frozen) on the premises. Their portions are huge, so prepare to take a doggy bag. (They don't discourage sharing either and will bring you an extra plate.) I can't stop... More

My husband and I have been going to Pan Am Family Restaurant for many years and love it. It is a family owned restaurant and we know all the waiters and waitresses and go usually at least once a week if not more. We just love it!

My wife, daughter, and I tried Pan Am Restaurant on a Friday evening, the second restaurant that we’ve tried at Pan Am Shopping Center, which is an easy stop during our commute home just of Route 66. We were pleasantly surprised and impressed with the tasty dishes, prompt and friendly service, and the quantity of food that we got. The... More

Tucked in a strip mall, Pan Am is really a traditional, North East US, Greek diner. Portions are large, almost too much so and the food is hot and comes pretty fast. Greek specialties are the way to go but there are pages full of traditional Americana as well. Service is clipped but efficient, with most servers older authentically Greek... More

Can't believe we've never been here. Food is fresh, well-prepared and huge servings. Wait staff is friendly, courteous. We had spanakopita appetizer, gyro platter, eggplant Parmesan and baklava...with enough left over for a second dinner. We will make this one of our go-to restaurants.

Breakfast is pretty terrible. Canned corned beef, potatoes with no seasoning, pancakes and waffles made with cake better. blech. Prices are also way out of line. Food for two adults and two kids was $40 and 2 coffees and 2 kids drinks were another $10. Try First Watch or even IHOP if you're in this area.

Just go. You wont find that quaility food in any chain. The Greek dishes are amazing. The chicken souvlaki is beyond delicious. We travel 40 min there twice a month for 16 years. Never a bad meal or experience. Love it.
