Fun and furious Greek experience

The restaurants are all lined up next to each other. We opted for the Golden Fleece. We liked the room. Having been to Greece it was pretty much the same feeling. The food was OK... read more

Greektown is the place to be on Friday and Saturday night or on any night. Pizza Paplis, Five Guys, Whalburgers, Pegasus, Fishbones, Red Smoke, and many other restaurants are in this area. Lots of bars, lounges, and dance clubs to visit. Greektown Casino and Hotel offers the worst food, not a lot of winning, live entertainment, and the best beds.... More

Had a great time. Food was great, the casino was great, and the location to everything was fantastic! We really enjoyed walking around, shopping and dining during the afternoon. In the evening be prepared to get hit up for money about every 50 steps, or every other store front. The party store is an experience in the evening to say... More

The best was the Spinach Pie. The area is party like and that's what you should go there food. Fine dining is not the point.... More

By casino standards this one is pretty good. There are lots of slot machines to play on varying in price to play. I did think that the price on their tables was a bit high for some games but it wasn't terrible.

Greektown is a relatively small geographical area but is filled with huge variety of all types of authentic Greek restaurants, bakeries, belly dancers & a great casino. Just a few blocks from the riverfront area but very distinctive. Best parking is at structure adjacent to casino. Everything is walking distance so once parked, you're good to go. OPA

If you're in the area or just looking for something to do you can walk around Greektown. They have plenty of good food and some shops plus you can go into the casino if you're feeling lucky!

We have been going to Greektown for years. We don't gamble and are disappointed that the greektown casino doesn't have live bands anymore but often there's live music on the street and it's pretty busy with lots of people. Lots of great restaurants but we prefer something Greek with Pegasus being our long time favorite.

Must go if you like Greek food - right next to the casino which has free parking (valet and self but go ahead and let the valet park). You can gamble and then eat at Greektown restaurants.
