Went here Saturday night. This is good comfort food. Not too fancy. Not high end. Casual place with good food and wine. I had Greek salad which was great and the Gyros platter. Great combo. Come here for a moderately priced very good tasting meal.

My husband and I came here right before closing. I expect the food to be mediocre at best, but was pleasantly surprised by the freshness and heaping portions. Service was great!

I enjoyed a masterfully prepared grilled salmon on an unusual but very tasty bed of grain and veggies while my son had a burger. There is a good craft brew selection, and people watching opportunity while sitting outside. Definitely recommended!

My wife and I were promptly greeted and welcomed by staff. Both of us has the gyros, which were very favorful and easy to handle as they were wrapped like a large ice cream cone. Strong recommendation here should you find yourself in Dinkeytown.
