The food is great but beware THE OWNER SMOKES INSIDE. I was completely thrown off by all the smoke in the building. If you can handle a smokey place then go for it but I can't and watching the owner light up in front of me was not ok.

Entry via smokey bar/entrance almost caused us to walk out. Once in the weird, huge dining room, we enjoyed both a good meal and good service - enjoyable enough that we were going to return the following night, a Sunday they were closed.

Bobby is great. Staff is warm. Food is excellent. Smoking gets on my nerves. Lots of regulars who make you feel welcome.

We ate at this restaurant because it was close to our hotel. The service was ridiculously slow and the food was nothing that would bring us back again. It was very expensive ($80 for two)

We were looking forward to a Greek lunch, but were very disappointed. The meal was edible, but not worth the trip there. My food was overdone and parts of it was slightly burned. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

An unexpected surprise. I had a glass of wine and the seafood salad stuffed avocado with a side of pita bread. The pita was absolutely perfect. The seafood stuffed avocado was wonderful but my only complaint is that it was really very messy to try to eat. The avocado wasn't cut free from the skin and with the seafood salad... More

This was great! I'm told to get here early cause service lacks as the night progresses. Not sure if it's true, we arrived at opening and the service was great as was the food! I ordered the Gyro dinner and it was good! Glad I ordered the sauce on the side and no onions. Prices were good as was the... More

The atmosphere is absolutely perfect for a date night! My husband ordered the baked lasagna and I ordered the hot chicken salad.. Both were excellent! Be aware though... Prices are steep!

Had a delicious Greek meal in Fairbanks. It is clean and has great service. The cook, Bobby, actually came out of the kitchen to greet us. We had a spinach chicken salad ($14.75) and chicken souvlaki with rice ($15.75). Great place to eat!

The head waiter/manager is an extrovert, who can make for an entertaining evening. On the night we went he seemed to be doing most jobs with a student assistant helping. It meant we had to wait a little longer for our food but when it came it was most enjoyable. The premises do not look that appealing from the outside,... More
