The food here is very good, especially the vegetable dishes and of course lamb. Location and parking is convenient in the Best Buy shopping mall, and you can also browse and do some shopping. I saw several families with young kids, who also appeared to enjoy the food and have a good time.

The food was fresh tasting and quickly prepared. Seemed like the wait staff was just ok. No smiles or greetings when we arrived.

This is a great restaurant to go to after a day at the beach. I had the large Greek salad with chicken and it was too large for me to finish, and I am a big guy. The salad itself was delicious with fresh ingredients. My wife had the spinach salad and she said it was wonderful. We will definitely... More

I would love to give this 5 stars since I LOVED my food, but it isn't 5 star service. Not bad service, just things like not clearing plates. The food is awesome though. I had the Gigantes, which is like a large lima bean in a tomato sauce and was fabulous. Spanikopita was really good too, not greasy at all.... More

Chillin at the Jersey Shore you really don't expect too much authentic food. In fact, you don't look for it here. However, this place is definitely one that found us. Food is so good. Menu has a variety of tasty dishes for carnivores and vegetarians. What is so nice is that the food is very close to what you would... More

Nice location in the center of Long Branch across the street from the beach. Not good for gyros but if you like fish they have excellent grilled octopus and light fried calamari, though they are not cheap.

The wait staff was very pleasant and we did not have to wait a long time for our food. We sat outside and the noise level was very low. Would come back.
