We stopped by this restaurant for lunch on our way to the airport since we had a few hours to kill and we wanted the highest rated Greek restaurant on TripAdvisor. You would probably never see this place if you were just driving around the neighborhood, but luckily we knew the address and had our GPS going. It is at... More

If you're in the mood for authentic Greek food definitely check out Samos immediately. There are now two locations, but the original one in Greektown is the best. CASH ONLY! I had the lamb gyro and a Greek salad - delicious! I'm sensitive to salt so to me it was a little salty, but my boyfriend it was on point.

We had grilled calamari salad over arugula. Side order of meatballs. Ordered vegetable lasagna to heat up for tomorrow. Topped off with tiramisu. So very good and delicious. We shared and it was enough for us both. We sat at one of the tables by the oven that they make their pizzas in. When we come again I will try... More

I simply can't offer enough superlatives for Samos. I've been coming here for twenty plus years and have only grown to further appreciate the food as time has passed. Mr. Nick is an outstanding chef and his passion is evident through the quality and consistency of all of his dishes. From the village salad to the spinach pie, I've never... More

We stopped here for lunch and while it doesn't look like much from the outside, the food was really good. I loved my chicken lemon soup and my husband enjoyed the olive tampenade. The stuffed grapeleaves were good, not great. The tzatziki sauce was very good. Keep in mind this place is cash only.

The food is great. The only drawback is the place is small and the wait can be long on weekends. But the result is worth the wait. The staff is attentive and just " darn right nice". I would recommend to anyone who likes the best fish and lamb dishes Greek style.

This is only my second time here and I wonder why any one buys tzaziki when it is so flavorful made fresh. Again who would buy any pita bread or store bought pita when it comes out soft savory just scrumptious. The shrimp halumi is also delish..

Visiting family in town and went to Samos for dinner. First visit back in at lest 10 years and the place hasn't missed a beat. Pastitsio, lamb, char grilled kalamari all just the way I remembered it. A little bit more wear and tear but they have been there almost forever. Could use a little updating but updating doesn't fill... More

What a great little spot. Small, not many tables so get there early. The wait staff was very friendly. We brought the kids on a Saturday night early 5ish and the place wasn't too packed but no kids were there throughout our meal. They had the high chair needed. Great! My son is gluten free and they were able to... More
