Greek town has great restaurants if you like Greek food, and next to them a super cute and awesome pastry shop. Price is good, not expensive, and there is a police station nearby for increased safety, but street parking is not easy. There is a parking structure that is pretty safe and close to the highway for easy in/out of... More

Great atmosphere, ate at the downstairs bar and had the lamb and rice, delicious! Stayed the night at Greektown Casino and walked out the door to nearly be at the steps of this restaurant.

Greektown isn't a huge district - it's just a couple of blocks of restaurants and bars, really. But it's a pedestrian-friendly street with lots of character and - despite everything you hear about Detroit - made me feel really safe. It gets more raucous as the night goes on, but during the day and in the (relatively) early evening, it's... More

Easy to get to from the people mover, if you're headed to the casino, take a little stroll through dine of this quaint Greek neighborhood of stores and shops and restaurants.

We took the people mover through Greektown and also did some walking. There are a variety of restaurants and a pastry shop "Astoria" hands down is the best. Gambling, party stores, restaurants, pastry shop, hotels, church, what else does a person need? Definitely worth walking through this historic part of the D!

Using the People Mover to get to the Greektown is the way to go! The casino hotel is a great place to let go of a few dollars, and the Astoria Pastry Shop is a must stop--make sure you get the baklava, it's unbelievable!
