We went to eat here because it was within walking distance of the hotel where we were staying. Not being fans of Greek food we were afraid we wouldn't find anything on the menu of interest to us, but we were wrong. They have a large menu selection and we quickly were able to decide on our dinner choices. Our... More

There's an old gag from the late, great comedian Les Dawson, when he's discussing a Greek holiday with the woman over the garden fence. 'Did you have the shishkebabs?' inquires the neighbour. 'From the moment we got off the plane,' is the response. No such issue at the Acropolis, but a lot of wry amusement at the start as the... More

Ok- I've never actually eaten a meal here or to go, however, each time I visit I go in for take out dessert. They have a large section but if you've never had their Coconut Cake... Well, you have to, even just to say you did. I do plan to try a meal there sometime, but I will say (my... More

This restaurant was very close to our hotel and was #6 on TripAdvisor so we thought we'd give it a go! Very friendly greeting, we were seated immediately! Waitress was prompt with fresh bread and butter and our drinks. We both order Fettuccini Alfredo, mine with grilled chicken, my husband's with shrimp. Both were very good, but I felt mine... More

We've been coming here for years and the food and service are consistently good. We do take out mostly and it's always packaged with care. This time we dined in for no specific reason. The menu has such a variety of Greek and American favorites that everyone should be able to find something that resonates with them. My favorite pasta... More

Big servings of delicious food... I always take food home! Great service, friendly staff and good food. On top of that you can buy a "gift" card which gives you BOGO entrees. Great way to eat free! Definitely worth a visit. Just off exit 28 on 77 so good for travelers too!

Very good. Nice atmosphere and a pleasant staff. My wife and I eat here at least twice a month. I have never made it for breakfast but have been told they have a fantastic breakfast. If you are ever in the area I would highly recommend it.

Our HOA men's group, the Romeos (Retired Old Men Eating Out) meets at the Acropolis for breakfast and fun every Friday morning. We usually have about 35 in attendance and the menu has something for every taste and appetite. As a transplanted Yankee I first learned about liver mush here...now I'm hooked!

Thank Roger S
