Great spot for lunch

We went to Acropolis after being literally repelled by the misplaced attitude of the three (3) young ladies who were "hostessing" at Cecelia's Ristorante two doors down on Elmwood. It was four p.m., and they asked us if we were having dinner, then told us that they didn't have any tables in the... read more

I'm a big fan of this place for just about any meal of the day. The food portions are quite generous and delicious. They have an excellent local beer selection and an impressive cocktail list with something for everyone. My favorite item is probably the Keftedes Pita Wrap, it is awesome.

They have some items that are really good, like the fried squid, but most items are just ok. The bar gets a little loud but the seating upstairs is nice. When it's warmer out the balcony seems like a good spot to sit outside.

Wonderful service, best mimosas in town, and their herb omelet was so good I didn't need anything on top!

Yes... you hear that right. This could very well be my favorite spot for breakfast. Notice I am not saying brunch since brunch to me is a totally different kind of meal. The food is delicious and comes out quick. And you should only be so lucky to get Amy as your server. She is one of a kind. Just... More

What a great choice. Great Menu, food was fresh and well prepared with lovely presentation. Service was friendly and attentive. Prices were very reasonable. All enjoyed in a lovely clean atmosphere. I'll be back in the summer weather to experience dining on the balcony overlooking the village.Yum Yum and YUM!!! Get Some!

I'm not sure whether these other reviews are truly regarding acropolis. I live relatively close by and I frequently eat at acropolis. The service has always been amazing and the food is always outstanding. It's almost always packed due to the fact that locals know they can expect an amazing breakfast, lunch or dinner combined with outstanding service. I recommend... More

Well for a place thats put a lot into decorating and changing, it should check out the concept of consistency. Had a decent meal there a while back but this meal,, a half chicken with potatoes and asparagus was really something I wouldn't feed my dog; and he died three years ago. An old dried out shrunken piece of chicken... More

My husband and I dined at Acropolis on a recent Saturday around lunch time. We were promptly seated. We ordered our food, two omelettes and one order of pancakes to split, and they literally took 45 minutes to arrive at our table. I saw at least 3 people come in for large carry out orders in this interval. While the... More

Everything is about the surface nothing more for the rich folks to give to local business in a poor city oh watch out for the shopping cart whenever you come by food is mediocre at best
