Greektown is a great area for travelers to explore, as long as they are careful. It is one of the more touristy areas of the city, but there are still many people looking for a quick buck. Greektown offers serveral restaurants, street vendors, and shops, including Astoria Bakery (amazing). It is a nice bit of Detroit culture if you are... More

We walked around this area and looked for a place to eat. There was a Casino and many restaurants to choose from. Because of time restraints we didn't get to do much else.

after the baseball games, plenty of time to hit the casino and play blackjack a few hours before retiring for the night. Just two blocks from the ball park.

This place is one block long. There is no special attraction just some greek restaurants and bakeries. The big attraction is the casino but that has nothing to do with Greektown other than the name. To call this block with no real attractions a town is sheer publicity.

We went on a walking tour of Greektown and sampled a few places that were all great. Topped off with desert from a Greek bakery! Very lively street life and nice pedestrian scale.

All of the Greek places are good in Greektown. My fav is Mykonos. The decor is beautiful and the owner makes sure you're taken care of like family. Delicious food. In the heart of Greektown. Im not into casinos but they are there too. The food, the bakeries- the people watching are worth the trip.

great restaurants, street music, a casino, and people watching are here! there are some good bars, but they were busy most of the time. I feel the need to mention there are many homeless, as well, and they do ask for spare change.

Visited the city after many years away and wanted to go back to Greektown which was a favorite back in the day. As we say in New Orleans, "Ain't dere no mo'!" There are several Greek restaurants still open serving the same good food but the atmosphere on the two block stretch was a raucous, cruising crowd and I was... More
