Their pita bread is worth getting a couple of extra as it is warm, soft, and just tastes great. I order the gyro with 2 extra pitas, extra white sauce, and a small side of gyro meat. The meat is soft and melts in your mouth.The staff is friendly and there are enough tables to seat everyone when they are... More

Early dinner with my brother. Had the Tour of Greece for 4 (no fun without leftovers), the always great Gyro platter and the Thursday Special Lamb Stew which is simply fantastic! How such a simple dish can be so enticing amazes me. The food was all very good, with plenty for leftovers. Our server was pleasant and attentive. Still a... More

I had the Athenian Salad small I may add and was great. I am a decent size guy and I was challenged eating it all. They also have a large choice but beware it is large. I chose the gyro meat but there are other choices also. The menu is full of choices and a great addition is the for... More

I recently dined at Greek Islands with my family and was wowed. The grilled octopus was great! I also enjoyed the fried calimare. My lamb burger topped with gouda cheese was juicy and very tasty. We enjoyed the attentiveness of our server. The Greek potatoes were overabundant. The atmosphere was friendly and casual. We enjoyed the smells of the dishes... More

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?
