“Great recommendation by Hotel Desk Clerk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

On our way home from Florida, we stayed overnight in Cornelius, and the desk clerk recommended the Acropolis for dinner.

The restaurant was very busy, and we were warned the wait could be up to 30 minutes - it wsa actually less than 10 minutes! The food was quite good - although my son was disappointed with his pork souvlaki - he actually said "Yours is better, Mommy!" I tried some and it was overcooked, very dry and flavourless - perhaps it was because the kitchen was overrun with restaurant guests and 2 private functions.

Overall - the meal was great and it was a very reasonable dinner for a family of four.

“good food and prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

I had a lamb gyro and a Greek salad, and it was wonderful. They bring good wheat bread and butter to the table as an appetizer, and the dessert selection is very good. This is a lovely place to eat for a very reasonable price.

“Always consistent very good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

We live close by and this is our go to restaurant for a good, well priced meal. They always make us feel welcome and treat us well. It is a great place to take small children and the kids menu is fair and tasty. Good Greek food with an Italian twist. I love the Gyro and Greek salad just cannot be beat. The servers are hit or miss...some are great and some act like they are doing you a favor. If the owners are there - they are always kind - great family run restaurant.

“Very good restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

Were looking for a diner or similar and stumbled onto the Acropolis Cafe and Grill. It turned out to be a great experience. Our waitress was super and the food was excellent. My wife raved about the Vegatable pita and I had a spinach pie. The Baklava looked great but the meals were ample, not leaving room for desert. If we pass this way again at meal time we will definitely be back.
