The Greek Islands used to be a great Greek restaurant. Then it began to slip -- food was not as good, service became a bit slower. Lately, visits to the Greek Islands have become terrible. The restaurant appears dirty. Service is slow and at times surly. And the food, which used to be great, is now not good at all.... More

I've dined at Greek Islands for the past 25 years. The food is always good. They use high quality meats, cheeses and other ingredients. Service is great. They are happy to have you as a guest and treat you in that manner.

I LOVE greek food so when there's a greek place in a town I'm traveling to, I will always try to find it. This place was recommended to me plus it has great reviews on Tripadvisor. IT WAS GREAT! The service was wonderful, thank you Linda! I ordered three appetizers and all were fantastic. I'm hoping I can go back... More

We enjoyed a very nice meal here, complete with the flaming saganaki and baklava. Three of us had gyros, which I really enjoyed. The portions were ample and the meat was well seasoned. You need to order feta separately if you want it on your gyro. They are generous with the feta and the Tzatziki was thick and yummy. My... More

I had an awesome dining experience here. The food was PHENOMENAL, the wait staff was great and it all came in a very timely manner. The decor is simple, but with such an amazing meal, who cares?

I took my 3 teenage boys to eat here while at the CWS. It was a great meal. We went for lunch and we all loved the food. It was a lot of food for lunch. I would definitely go back. We had the meal that was a sampling of the Greek food.

I went here for a late lunch while in Omaha for a conference. I love greek food and was really excited to try this place after all the great reviews. I had the skordalia appetizer and the souvlaki. The skordalia was just ok, it had a very strong lemon flavor. The souvlaki was pretty unimpressive as well, not horrible but... More

There are a number of good Greek restaurants in Omaha. Feta's two location come to mind, as does Katie's and others. But the Greek Islands is clearly number one. A broad menu and great service distinguish this long time favorite. We went on 5-4, and in a departure, I had neither the gyros nor their great Athenian salad. I briefly... More
