Sports bar with a great views

The restaurant is dark inside and not that appealing. However when weather is nice the outside seating by the lake is wonderful. The food is fairly good and interesting choices.

Eh! Says it all. Noisy. Food average. Bad presentation. Bad service. Snooty waitress. She spilled fish stew on table. Laughed it off. Didn't try to rectify it or get another fish. Very disappointed. Don't order Kalypso grilled shrimp. Ordinary shrimp. No taste served with too much rice.

Having family who live at Lake Anne we have been to Kalypso's several times and not been particularly impressed. We returned this past Saturday only because one of our party of 5 had expressed a desire to try it. Since we were under the impression it had changed management we hoped for an improvement. No such luck. We found the... More

This restaurant has changed names several times and fortunately, it's been Kalypso's for a while now. It's hidden in the Lake Anne Plaza which is an older place. As such, it doesn't get the foot traffic that newer places get. Which...allows you to get a good seat on a Friday or Saturday night without having to wait 90 minutes. You... More

My friend and I enjoyed another delicious lunch at Kalypso's. It was over 90 degrees so we sat inside and enjoyed the view of the lake from a window side table (we appreciated the air conditioning). When the weather is nice we sit outside. The restaurant has Mediterranean inspired food and lunch time favorites. I ordered a gyro which was... More

Ever since Kalypso's opened, I've been taking friends there for birthday lunches & dinners for special or no reason. The staff has always been friendly & knowledgeable. The service is very good. The food is consistent, always tasty, well-presented & served in good time. I highly recommend the lasagne & moussaka. The salads are pretty, the lettuce is always fresh... More

They now have plenty of servers, so you no longer have to wait for hours to get a menu or to order. I was pleasantly surprised. The food was good as usual with a professional staff. Drinks are half-priced till 7:00 pm. A great restaurant to go to with family and friends. Did I mention the amazing lake view and... More

I've really only eaten here at lunchtime. It is fairly empty during the weekday during lunch. On a sunny warm day, outside eating is so nice! I get the same thing every time I go...gyro and fries. I crave it. One of the best gyros around this area.

We have walked by this restaurant countless times to eat at another restaurant in the Lake Anne Shopping Center. Alas, that restaurant closed (R.I.P.) and we decided to try Kalypso's . We started off with the crab dip appetizer - just okay and we were charged an extra $1.50 for more toasted bread to dip the dip (only got 6... More
