We wandered over during a snow storm at our nearby hotel. There was a bellydancer as well as tvs going a dart game and regular restaurant eating. We're not big on Mediterranean food so tried a steak appetizer that was great and from there we ordered a dinner to share. We had a medium spicy garlic shrimp with rice and... More

Actually went there to play Bingo with family. Had coffee and a piece of baklava For $2 I got a small piece that had way too much honey and only one layer of walnuts. Not even sure it was made with filo dough. Looked at the buffet and concluded it wasn't worth $15.

Ordered a Greek Feta platter - hummus, pita bread, olives, feta, etc Ordered a Falafel wrap which was good! But the best part - chocolate molten... More

Overall, the food was quite good, especially the grilled meats and salad dressing. It is a rather unusual atmosphere with the bar and dining areas part of the same space. The service was good. Being Greek, we are familiar with many of the foods served here and felt it very strange that "Greek potatoes" turned out to be homemade potato... More

Sami our waiter was funny, and helpful. He guided us through the menu...finally deciding on the Mediterranean Sampler containing Doma (stuffed grape leaves), Hummas with pita wedges, Greek Salad, Falafels, Kibbi (falafel stuffed with seasoned ground beef), and Gyro meat with Tziki sauce.

Be prepared to visit with a belly dancer or two. The food is so so but the dancers are fun to watch and they are very good at coming to tables for a visit

Found this restaurant on Trip Advisor. I've never had Mediterranean food, but it was great! I ordered the Shish Taouk. I'd recommend this to anyone coming to the area.

Went on a Sunday night and the place seemed almost empty. except for the bar where it seemed busier. Fairly large choice, decent prices. Service was very long. My plate was not that great, but it might have been me too tired to enjoy properly. It's next to the Quality Inn, so it's an OK choice if you're staying at... More

Unique dining experience. We wanted to have the full experience so we called and made reservations during their belly dancing show. Stage is in the middle so easy viewing from most of the restaurant. Server helped us choose the right meal for our tastes. All portions were plentiful. Our table of 6 were all happy with the meals. Service was... More
