I had never been here despite the fact that it has been around for decades. I was floored at how busy it was at 6:00 pm on a Sunday night. They have free valet parking which is very nice in that neighborhood. People were waiting for large parties but with three we walked right in. It is a large restaurant... More

Even when the place was crowded we didn't wait a lot to have a table. The salad was delicious and we have the pork that was great! A great atmosphere and really nice staff.

But I don't like Greek food... well I didn't until I ate here! The food was delicious and fresh. The menu had a large enough variety that I was comfortable ordering something "safe" and something out of my comfort zone. They offer a combination plate that allows you to try two things. Between the appetizers and the numerous entrees all... More

This authentic Greek restaurant is in Greek Town. Huge place so I immediately thought that food might not be so good. Our starters were were very good especially the Saganaki. The main course of lamb and chicken could have been better if it was not cold. The taste was however good. Greek red wine not expensive and good.

My family and I love Greek Islands. The food is delicious, waiters attentive and friendly. The place is large and well-staffed, so while it's always crowded, it's easy to get a table. It's a great choice for people who are driving in from elsewhere; you can valet for free! If you go, try the hot lima beans as an appetizer... More
