Great fun

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.

Went here for my husbands birthday. The casino needs a good cleaning and update. The drinks were over priced as well.

Detroit has these various ethnic neighborhoods, but they are really small. Greektown's Greek restaurants and diners are situated on one block only. Not worth making a trip for.

I walked around greektown and took the people mover to it for two nights at a conference. If staying at the renaissance center definitely walkable as opposed to needing the people mover as only about 5 blocks. Nice street scene and clearly an effort to ensure public safety without an oppressive police presence.

This is by far the best nightlife point in Detroit. There are many bars, restaurants that are serving great food, casinos, and the police are always around so it is very safe. It is like the Strip.
