Disappointing...that is the first word that comes to mind. I eat out often and have been to a number of different Greek restaurants and the service here was atrocious. My girlfriend and I were seated and yes, we were offered bread and brought water, but I had to ask for my waitress after 10-15 minutes of no introduction. I believe... More

This was the ABSOLUTE freshest and tastiest seafood and fish dinner. We are so happy that we made the choice to eat at this off the beaten path, authentic greek restaurant during our long weekend stay in Long Branch. Not liking large crowds, we did not want to eat dinner at any of the highly trafficked venues found along the... More

When my better half suggested a Greek taverna in a strip mall, I was extremely skeptical! But blow my socks and shoes off, Niko's was fresh seafood, in meaningful portions, prepared with seasoning and grilling that make your tastebuds stand up and cheer!! Their grilled seafood platter - great! Their flounder stuffed with crabmeat - EXCELLANT! And they do take... More

The food was almost as good as in Greece. This is one of the best Greek restaurants in the US. There was a large selection and everything was excellent. The quantity was large plus it was BYO. We will be back again and again.

We have been coming here for several years when ever we are staying at the beach. Small place that is very busy that does not take reservation for smaller parties. Food is consistently good. Daily specials are worth looking at. This is a BYOB which we tend to like and there is a liquor store next door.

It takes a lot to motivate me to drive the half hour or so down to Long Branch, NJ after a loooooooooooong day at work, showing houses in the HOT sun. But promise me the last lamb shank in the kitchen, prepared with "horta" - a green leafy vegetable (which is a staple of Greek households, I am told) and... More

My Fiance, a friend, and I had dinner here tonight at our friend's recommendation. When the waitress took our order, my fiance ordered the Saganaki for appetizer. The waitress didn't know what that was. She pointed to it on the menu and she still seemed clueless. She also ordered the Gyro platter for herself, I ordered the Souvlaki sandwich, and... More

I have been here 3 or 4 times and each meal has been consistently fresh and absolutely delicious. My favorites are the grilled octopus, stuffed grape leaves and gyros. The octopus is so tender you need no knife. I recently had the Red Snapper and it was great. I never had authentic Greek food before and I have become a... More
