“Amazing food, fast service, best falafel ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Went to Artemis based on positive Trip Advisor feedback and our love of Mediterranean food. We were not disappointed. The food was exceptional. The dilemma I think is how to order. You could order just appetizers and soup and have a great meal. You must order the fries! The falafel is the best I have ever had and that is saying a lot. The lemon soup was divine. The saganaki was a big hit with the kids...and that's all before the entrees came! Moroccan lamb stew, chicken kabob, salad..all fantastic. The atmosphere isn't much to talk about, but the food...wow. Very reasonable prices - our family of 4 gorged ourselves and had 2 beers and the check was $90.

“Best meal in South Lake!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

I came with a group of 4 and at first, everyone looked up at us when we walked in the door (no vestibule so we brought in a blast of freezing air with us, which didn't help), making me feel like it was a locals-only place. But I think the only downside to the meal was every time the door opened, everyone was frozen in their seats since the door opens directly onto the dining room floor.

The service was friendly and fast, and the menu options were fantastic. We had a party of 4 and everyone had MORE than enough to eat, and loved every bite. I had the Greek lettuce wraps and pita as a mains, and shared my husband's fries. Everything was absolutely delicious and I wish we'd found this place earlier in the week! Definitely check it out!

“Everything Made Fresh Daily - their motto says it all”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

The Greek food is solid and flavorful at a reasonable price. Generous salads and nice (fresh) pitas. As good as Athens. The young lady serving us was busy, but did a very good job. They place a lot of priority on getting the hot food right to the table. Interesting anecdote; the server told us that none of the staff are Greek - crazy, but who cares when it is sooooo good. Prices are most reasonable for what you get - Gyro is $7.95. They have a nice selection of soft drinks and beer (less than $5). Will definitely return! The only negative is that the restaurant is located in a small strip center and the parking lot is small and crowded - but there is on street parking if the lot is full. Our bill for two with drinks and an appetizer was $33.

“Greek Food & The Lake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

We went to the Artemis Grill on a Saturday night. The location is quaint and very casual, however, the food and service is not. We were seated right away, orders taken efficiently and before long we were staring at our plate of babaganoush. The spices were just right, pitas, warm and chewy. Quickly, we were served our main entrees of mousaka and chicken kebabs. Each dish was served with saffron rice and tabbouleh. Flavors were bright, intense and very mediterranean. The staff was super friendly, attentive and got us in and out for dinner under 45 minutes. Love, Love, Love the Artemis Grill! Can't wait to go back!
