Excellent Greek food. Good service! Daily specials. Long time local favourite dining spot. Great choice for family dining or a Siegal occasion. Two choices for dining. Counter service downstairs and table service upstairs. Breakfast is great here too.

This us a very popular spot with locals. You can eat meals either in a diner type setting or a steak house restaurant . I find the food acceptable but not exciting. Service in the sit down restaurant is usually good but can be slow if they're busy. Reservations on weekend are recommended.

We'd heard mixed reviews of this restaurant so decided to go see for ourselves. In the upper dining room the atmosphere was cozy, the service good, and the food excellent. The restaurant itself is a bit dated, could do with some cosmetic surgery, but overall the experience was pleasant. A chicken stir fry was hearty, well seasoned and richly sauced.... More

Stopped in to try a burger and was disappointed . I like fresh meat and it tasted like it came from the freezer. The restaurant itself was not the cleanest I've been in. My wife had the New York grilled cheese. She thought it was . We came with another couple and they were not impressed . We won't be... More

I have gone for breakfast twice and won't be going back. When you enter you order at the counter and then take a seat and your breakfast is delivered. I am very specific about how I order my breakfast, and both times I went the same thing happened. I specifically ordered 2 eggs, bacon, toast and coffee and both times... More

We stopped after a nice ride today with our friends. This was our first time along with our friends as we heard excellent things about the food. We must have really misunderstood because we ended up at the side entrance where we thought the restaurant was. We arrived at 12:15 pm the high peek of lunch. The restaurant was empty... More
