We were recommend by the hotel we stayed at to go to this restaurant. Are we ever glad we did. This Greek restaurant has been in the same family for 92 years. With the great food and excellent friendly staff I can understand why they have been in business for so long. Our waitress was so friendly as well as... More

We were at the college reunion weekend and stopped here for lunch. Three of us had a half a delicious sandwich and soup for $6.00. The only problem was we got the soup alone and had to wait quite awhile for the sandwich - in fact, we had to ask for our order.

We went for lunch and after all of the reviews I had received we decided to try it. The food was over cooked, it was dark and dreary, silverware was spotty as well as the glass that my drink was in.

Very good breakfast menu, great prices and friendly, quick service. We got there at 8:30 am on a Sunday and by 9:30 am the place was getting full with locals - always a good sign a restaurant is good. Had the spinach/feta cheese omelet and it was excellent. Good coffee too.

Delicious! We all had the prime rib special. $18. Came with potatoes and a vegetable. Rib was nicely done and good sized.

Our reservation was for 8:30, but Graduation ran late. The restaurant called to confirm we were still coming. They were very accommodating, staying open late for us and other families celebrating Graduation. Rachel was our server she was wonderful very friendly and attentive. The food was excellent.

Our hotel desk clerk recommended this place and it was a hit with us. Service was great, salads fresh and tasty, the cream of chicken soup with lemon refreshing and our entrees plentiful and delicious. Pricing was very good for what we received

There has been some price increases for the meals and some meals have been eliminated from the menu. It could be the prices are a bit... More

we were well served here early one Friday evening at this restaurant clearly rooted in the past... for one thing, people were smaller, and probably didn't so test the dimensions of the small booths... nicely taken care of by pleasant waitress who offered us the lagniappe of oil-dipped bread and enjoyed a nice turkey dinner -- came out very fast...

We stopped for dinner while driving through central New York. The atmosphere was warm, the service was excellent, the food was delicious, the portions were generous, and the price was very reasonable.
