Not totally authentic Greek food - I would say more Cypriot in style. Gyro's are good though. Usual Greek type items on menu - staff friendly and service okay. Overpriced though - maybe due to location - nevertheless not bad - not great either.

I tried Greek food and it was not like any authentic Greek food I have ever had. Spanakopita and Pastitsio were not good. It was also served with greek potatoes and some rice covered in creamed peas. Just nasty. Husband said Gyro was good though so I give it an average only for that reason.

This is a very casual, family owned spot with great service and affordable food. I pop in all the time for a quick gyro salad. The portions are large and the price are good. The management might consider an update to the interior, which is clean and tidy, but looking a little dated. You must try the kalamar; it truly... More

We had a falafel pita served as a salad and a cheeseburger with fries. Both were delicious! We chose to sit outside because the weather was beautiful and we were able to watch the ships go by. Our waitress was attentive and nice. The meals were good portions and value.

Stopped in for dinner on my own. I was seated quickly and a server was out right away (though there were only a few tables occupied at the time). I ordered a cup of the avgolemono, fried shrimp with steamed veggie medly, and galatoboureko (custard in phyllo) for dessert. Kourtak retsina for beverage. The soup had nice chunks of chicken...

Excellent greek food. Start off with Flaming Cheese first thing under appetizers, lovely greek tradition. great atmosphere, and the staff are really friendly. The owner is always around and meeting people which makes it more homely and welcoming. had the grilled lamp chops which were prefect and the vegetarian gyro.

The Olympia Cafe is located at 5 E. Water Street. The service was good and I like the atmosphere. I had the Kalamari with a Greek Salad that was very good nice size portion and tasted wonderful.. My son ordered the Chicken Kabob dinner. He loved it. It must have been good because if it isn't pizza or burgers he... More
