Very casual and very popular. Order their Greek anti pasto with Feta (house salad) for your table along with some peel and eat shrimp---and a Bud! Yum!!!

My husband and I stopped in and sat at the bar one afternoon. We ordered some peel and eat shrimp, Paul's signature item. The shrimp were cooked perfectly. We didn't stay for a meal because the atmosphere was so dismal. Next time, I'll order takeout...More

Greek style shrimp was good. Octopus was not worth the $23.95, when you can go to other places around the sponge docs and get it for $18.95. Calamari was terrible. Never seen the pieces so small and greasy. Service was super slow! I mean bad...More
