Recently revisited the Greek Islands with my parents and son. Just like coming home, great service, welcoming atmosphere and delicious Greek food. Started with the flaming cheese, and part of our group enjoyed the Friday specials (Lamb Shanks and Rice and the Fish Plaki), the others enjoyed Souvlaki. The Athenian salad and the Greek Caesar were delicious and full of... More

Friendly place, some food was awesome (appetizer sampler), some was just OK... seemed to be lacking spice.

We've eaten there a few times. Pretty good Greek food. Their tzatziki is very good, just a bit salty.

It was hard to make a decision on what to order when my husband and I visited this restaurant for lunch this week. We ordered the saganaki (flaming cheese) ... really good. The quality of cheese they used for this dish is outstanding! We also ordered the creda feta ... oh my! I could have made a meal of it... More

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
