“Great food; even better service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2011

Went with family for dinner on a Saturday night. Place was fairly busy, but were seated right away. Menu is huge and diverse. Ordered the flaming Saganaki to start; kids were delighted by the "fire show." Appetizer was good. One kid had the NY Strip and other had a lamb chop; both were excellent and cooked to perfection. I had Chicken shishkabob with rice pilaf (yummy). Chicken was a bit overcooked. Wife had gyros and spinach pie combo plate (loved it). In short, 3 of 4 dishes were great; portions are very good size. Service was extraordinary. Kids even noticed how often our waters were refilled and servers came around constantly. Given no kids menu, the bill was more than we normally spend, but well worth it on occassion.

“Great place to go to with friends”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2011

Six of us visited the Greek Islands this past weekend, and we will definitely be going back. We sat at our table for three hours and just ordered food 'for the middle of the table' and shared appetisers and main courses alike.

The food was very fresh and delicious, and we worked our way through most of the cold and hot appetisers and also a couple of main courses to share.

The service was attentive, and even when the order went a bit wrong at one point, it was immediately corrected and we were offered a complimentary dish. I would just recommend that they serve pita bread instead of the sliced bread in their bread basket. Pita bread is available, but you have to order it (and pay a little extra). But it was hot and delicious when it came out.

We also were the last table of guests to leave on Sunday night, but at no time were we pressed to get out. This is definitely a little 'find' and is a welcome suburban extension to the Greektown offerings.

“AMAZING!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2011

We never make a trip to the West Suburbs without eating at Greek Islands. It is incredible and authentic Greek food with friendly staff! Rated 84 in the top 100 privately owned restaurants in the entire US in 2009. YUM! Definitely nicer than your typical chain restaurant, but jeans with a nice shirt is fine!
