We go to Greektown every time I come!! While we are traditionalists and always visit Pegasus, there are many other great options in the area. A lot of the famed Greek restaurants have gone, but the feel still lives on. The food and atmosphere are never a disappointment and the Casino is an added benefit for we who like to... More

This is for sure one of the most typical places in Detroit downtown. It has a lot of restaurants, coffee shops and bars along Monroe Street. Don't forgef to visit the GreekTown Casino!

Greektown always has good restaurants and lots of people. This being said, Greektown is definitely one of the more "touristy" parts of detroit, but it's fun nonetheless. It is a safe area, with a police presence and friendly people. It's always busy before a Red Wings game at the Joe Louis. Greektown is easily accessible--if you don't want to walk,... More

It was less crowded and more charming on a cold snowy night. More the Greektown I remember from my youth. Lights were sweet. Could do without Disney touches liked loud piped in "Feed the World" music on the streets. Does anyone actually find that appealing? I just don't get it. In any event stick to the places that have been... More

Pegasus Restaurant is an outstanding Greek Restaurant. There are about 6 other Greek restaurants in this 4 block area. Also Fishbones, with Cajun cuisine, and a great Raw Bar. Pizza Papalis is "off the chain" pizza. Greek town Casino offers a taste of Las Vegas, including a 400 room, 1st class hotel. Street entertainers, and people just strolling around. Nice... More

Lots of great establishments here - a few of the Greek restaurants are left but there are many other great ones here. Worth a visit!

Restaurants/Bars. Pastry Shop. Casino. Church. Maybe the Greektown casino has wiped out the Greektown Detroit natives have raved about. Make a beeline to Greektown if you want food, drinks, or gambling. It's just a bizarrely preserved block or two in the shadow of the casino.

A hidden gem that you must experience if you are visiting Detroit. A little bit of everything so its worth staying the night in one of the hotels. Great restaurants, gambling, pubs, hotels and shops and within walking distance to Ford Field and Comerica Park.
