This is a new restaurant since the last time I lived here 15 years ago, so thought I'd try it for lunch. I ordered a small salad and a French Dip Sandwich. Salad arrived quickly and was good. French Dip arrive about the time I finished the salad. As I picked up the first half of the sandwich, there were... More

Sir, I remember you clearly as I was your waitress. Diet coke, small garden salad with no tomato, Thousand Island dressing. Our roast beef arrives completely cooked and we slice it ourselves, the juices you are referring to were due to it being simmered in the au jus prior to placing on the bun. It gives the meat more flavor... More

Like another reviewer, we ordered the Moussaka. It was awful, and unlike any I have ever had before-just layers of recently warmed up veg and what seemed like spaghetti sauce, tossed into a sad little heap. I love this dish (which ia a Greek casserole that is topped with a béchamel sauce baked into yummy goodness), and it's not hard... More

I never received an email from you or I would have responded. Likely, the fireplace was not on because the heat generated in the kitchen makes it extremely hot and we do not routinely let the fireplace run as it heats the dining room up to the point of making it unbearable. Did you speak to your server about your... More

We were so excited to see what appeared to be a new Greek Restaurant open up in Ocean Shores. We came to the restaurant in the early evening on a Friday. We ordered the signature Greek dish, Massaka. The waitress said that they don't have the ingredients on hand to make this dish. She said that if we wanted to... More

I am sorry you had a poor experience. I was your waitress that night and I would never tell a customer to order a dish in advance, that has never ocurred in my restaurant. Yes, there are times when we run out of ingredients for certain dishes, but I prefer to run out than to offer ingredients that are less... More

This review based on one visit, with four people. The atmosphere is upscale casual. Dark woods and minty-greens. The place looks clean. About 14 tables, a little close together. The waitress sat us promptly, making no fuss about us being the last people in the restaurant, and that we arrived just at closing time. There was only one other group... More

I am sorry for your poor experience and review. I was working that night and clearly remember your table. The menu did state that the stew had cinnamon (although that was not the reason given when the plate returned from the kitchen). But no matter, we have since removed it from the menu. I am sorry you are displeased with... More

Oh I am so excited to have 2 of my favorite foods in 1 place! Very friendly staff and so far I've only had the gyro (twice) it was excellent. I am looking forward to trying " All You Can Eat Spaghetti " on Wednesdays. The menu has a wide selection of both Greek and Italian items, reasonably priced. It... More
