Oh dear; this was once the only place for our family gatherings, this place has really gone down hill. Once arriving at reserved brunch, our table was not ready and the staff was very frustrated overwhelmed and unruly toward us (especially dad 🥺) as we...waited patiently and was brought to our table, we noticed they used booths to accommodate the rest of the family, after bringing it to their attention, we were told , why are you still here if you don’t like the set up?” Our family brunch eventually decided to leave and was appalled at the behavior of our beloved restaurant, we’ve all decided that from now on El Greco will no longer be a family gathering for us, I pray their service gets better and they no longer treat Good people aggressively and unprofessional again. Good Luck El GrecoMore

I've eaten at this restaurant for over 6 years. The staff is very friendly, bathrooms are always clean and the food is great! You can always tell how clean a restaurant is by their bathrooms. There is always someone cleaning and moping. The owners are...friendly and their hostess are friendly. I highly recommend eating here. They make you pay up front during the night because people have been known to eat and run off. It's the times we live in. You pay at the cashier when leaving normally.More

Service is always good, but more, the food is great! The spinach pie is my favorite, but I also love the deep fried fish fillet dinner.

My sister and I went to this place on 10/9/2020 for breakfast. First, the dirty waitress had a stank attitude. To add insult to injury, the food came back as dingy at best. I ordered 2 eggs (sunnay side up) Needless to say, the sun...did not come out. The eggs were brown. My white toast was like a stale cracker, the hash browns were hard and left over, and worst of all, my ham was spoiled to the point that it wasn't edible. At that point, I just snapped. I told the waitress that the ham was spoiled, she said and I quote "no it isn't". That is when i lost it..I told her to give me my check for juice only and she know what she could do with that slop she was trying to pawn off as food. Do not eat at this place as I believe it is a Covid Castle. Nasty, Nasty and more Nasty.More

This place had horrible service, and seating that particular night. I was served an omelette (Denver OMELETTE which only has ham, onion, and green peppers). However my OMELETTE this time came with MAGGOTS. The manager on shift along with the cook came and verified it...was a maggot. Removed only my item from bill and gave me a cheesecake. When I called to speak with owners, I was given the run around til I walked in on them at the business. They lied and called police stating I threatened them and was harassing them. When I uploaded about my experience in a review on Facebook, the owner Gus son Jonny (Yianni Gliatis) on fb became very angry. And is now having a JASON WAYNE page act as MPD. THESE PEOPLE ARE VERY UNPROFESSIONAL. HERE'S THE PIC .... YOU CAN SEE THE MAGGOT FOR YOURSELF. CHECK OUT FOX INVESTIGATION 5 PAGES LONG WORTH OF FILTH. These pics were taken in the restaurant.More

We were in Milwaukee for another event and needed to stop for lunch and El Greco was in the neighborhood. (had not been there in mega years) Good choice, prices nominal, selection great options, service well done. Had the Tuesday special, German Pot Roast. Very...hearty serving, meat tender and flavorful, sauce with carrots and onions, different but flavorful. All in all a very good visit.More

My "guy friend" and I were in town for a week, as it was part vacation, and part that he was meeting my family. When in town, I have been coming to this restaurant for years. They have everything you can think of on the...menu. I always have the Broasted Chicken. It takes 20 minutes to make, but absolutely worth the wait. You can smell it, as the server brings it to your table, and you imagine just how good its going to taste with the first bite. It's always crunchy on the outside, and moist and tender on the inside. My guy had the Cheeseburger and Fries, which he enjoyed. Since soup came with my meal, along with French Fries, I insisted that he try the Chicken and Dumpling Soup, which was one of the specials for the day. We both loved the soup. Always good food and good service. Since he is now part of the family, he looks forward to coming back again.More

I grew up coming here every Sunday and always loved it! Their hash browns are amazing. I got the country omelet and it was okay. The onions are cut very large and kinda ruined it for me. Service was okay as well. But again the...hash browns are great!More
