“Food and Staff are tremendous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

We had The Acropolis cater a dinner for the NECA/IBEW graduation ceremonies. The staff was attentive, friendly and very professional. The food was outstanding! We had the Gyro Tortellini and Shoulder Filets along with Greek Salad, baby baked potatoes and sauteed green beans. Desert consisted of Raspberry Cheesecake and Baklava. Truly amazing taste.

We had a lovely time. Even with a large group our meal was fast and our waitress Angie was knowledgable and organized.

“Our first date turned in a life together....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

I am from Kentucky and made a trip to Evansville to meet my date at the Acropolis, we had requested a private table and it was reserved and waiting for us...our server Barbara was extremely knowledgeable on what items were on the menu, she made fantastic suggestions to us…I enjoy Greek food very much but my date does not, there was something for everyone on this menu. She suggested a small sampling of some of the Greek appetizers and they were all wonderful…I especially enjoyed the Dolmades. I cannot recommend the Acropolis enough to anyone that would like to try Greek food for the first time or wants one of the best burgers in town. We have attend some special events since then, the banquet room is beautiful and would recommend it to anyone for a special upcoming event. They have great food, a great staff and a great atmosphere, you will surely enjoy spending some time at the Acropolis with Doros and his great team!

“the best restaurant in evansville - by far!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

wow! what a great find. just visited (for the first time), yesterday, with the kids. everything we ate was absolutely incredible. do yourself a favor and order the house specials from the back page of the menu. tell the waitress that you want the chef to choose for you, being sure to let them know of any allergies, set a budget for what you want to spend (per person), then just sit back and enjoy an amazing procession of delicious food!!! the chicken lemonati (lemon chicken with rice), filet a la cyprus (pork loin in parsley, cucumber and yogurt that will remind you of tabbouleh) and spinach-stuffed flounder were simply perfect. in a city overrun with fast food and national chain restaurants, Acropolis will become your instant favorite. bring the family and be sure to save plenty of room for dessert (the baklava are the best i've ever had).

not just your typical greek restaurant, serving breakfast and gyros. they cater and can flawlessly pull off anything from tex-mex to cajun and chinese. if i were getting married in the evansville/henderson area, they would definitely be catering the wedding!!!

tip: don't be shy! ask to meet the owners (doros & ellada) and give them your feedback. they will, LITERALLY, make you feel like family. so so soooooo good!!!

“incredible”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

this place is great! we had such a great time and loved everything we tried. we ordered the family specialty and were not disappointed. the flavors were wonderful, the service was great, and the atmosphere/ambiance transport you to Greece. the owners, doros and ellada, are warm and friendly; be sure to say HI. we left full, happy, and with plenty of leftovers. for authentic Greek food and/or just a great night out, definitely head to acropolis.
