“Always a good simple meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2012

Olympians is close by and seems to always have a steady stream of patrons. The wait staff is friendly and responsive. There is a variety of food from which to choose and provides something for everyone. I like have the pitcher of fresh iced tea available as well as the option of a cold beer or glass of wine. The food comes in large portions and there is usually some left to take home. Last night we enjoyed the large Greek salad and while it is good, a different salad dressing may be better. We had a large pizza which came cooked just right. While this is not gourmet dining, they are very good at what they advertize they are...a family restaurant. We hope they are there for a long time to come.

“Decent meal, reasonable prices”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2011

While staying in Alexandria, I used the TripAdvisor app to search for a restaurant that was not fast food/chain. This place came up, and ended up being a good choice for a simple dinner. The menu is extensive, and includes a lot of Italian and American selections as well as Greek. I had the Chicken Souvlaki pita sandwich. It was fresh and well-seasoned. No room for dessert, but the baklava looked good! Service was efficient.

“Not Bad, But Nothing To Write Homw About”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2011

The food is the high point as the atmosphere and service were FAIR at best. Maybe I expect to much, but it was not very authentic in terms of Greek Restaurants. The service was acceptable for being a bust Thursday night and the atmosphere was what one would expect for a restaurant trying to serve Greek, Italian, and 'American' style cuisine (Hamburgers). I would go back, but only if I had low expectations

“Wonderful food within walking distance to Almost Heaven Bed Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2011

This is a wonderful restaurant within walking distance of the Almost Heaven bed and breakfast. They are a small family run business located in a shopping center. Very clean, great service, plenty of food and great prices. This little shopping center has everything you need.
Great location.
