Best Greek food in Nebraska

Have eaten here many times--the last in 2012. Always a pleasure--good prices, great food, good wait staff. Great Bacclava. Even Better pork. Fantastic yogurt and dill sauces. Cucumbers so fresh, they squirt you when you cut with a fork !

When I drove up to the restaurant I was not sure what to expect. However, once inside I understood why so many people recommended the Greek Islands in Omaha! The food was delicious. Try one of the Greek wines while dining to make the meal even more authentic!

I love Greek and this place is legendary in Omaha. So, I was working in the area one day around lunch so I stopped in. The potatoes were good, the chicken skewers were so dried out it was like eating dehydrated food. The server was nice and she was working to make everything good. But not impressed. So, then we...

I had the grilled octopus starter and it was amazing. The octopus was tender but well grilled and flavorful and a large portion. For my main I had the small greek salad with gryo meat, which was also a very a very filling portion with a lot of flavor. We also had great service. I would go back again. The... More

Over all the meal was great. One of my friends had the "Cinnamon Spaghetti and really liked it. Some of us had the Athenian Greek Salad. I felt that the Lamb was very dry, and a bit over cooked, but overall the salad was good. The waiter was fantastic, and was so friendly that he made our evening special.

Will never go again. Was it the chef tonight? Or is Greek food served black/burnt? All food ordered was black and dry, no flavor. Poor presentation. A child's hamburger came paper thin, black/burnt. Bun was black/burnt on the inside. Moussaka was bland, dry, poor presentation. Kabobs were beef jerky, another words, dry and chewy. Broccoli came stalk and all. Stalk... More

This place never disappoints. It is delicious. I can't say enough good things about it. We order a combo dinner and share it; then get a salad, too. They give you delicious bread and plenty of food. You won't be disappointed.

Lots of options for authentic Greek food, I like lamb but not huge into their seasoning, but everyone else enjoyed it which was fine. Lots of dessert options which were excellent.

The largest Greek place that I have been to in Omaha. A full service bar with all the Greek beer and liquor. The food I had was very good. I ordered the moussaka. It came with Greek potatoes and a house salad that I had the house dressing on. The large piece of moussaka was very good. The Greek potatoes... More
