Consistently delicious Greek food. My husband & I shared the tour of Samos. Salad, pita & tzatziki, grape leaves, lamb chops, chicken, shrimp, gyro meat and potatoes. We brought a lot home!! Yum!!

My sister and I went for the first time and we really enjoyed it. The food was very tasty and the service was even better. Our waitress recommended the chicken wrap and I'm so glad I ordered it because it was delish!!! My sister had the shrimp wrap and she also thought it was yummy. I will be recommending this... More

Old school, neighborly restaurant with friendly staff. The gyro took a little while, but it was very tasty with a toasted pita wrap.

I used to eat here regularly, but noticed a gradual drop in quality and service became less fun. Folks there seemed a bit tired and disinterested. Get better Greek food and service at Broadway Diner just a couple miles away on Eastern Ave.

Passing through Baltimore on the way from D.C. to Philly, we ended up at Samos, which has been pleasing customers in the Greektown neighborhood of Baltimore for nearly 40 years. No white tablecloths here. The decor features Greek scenes. Samos offers a standard selection of Greek specialties, so plenty of choice. The food was good, though nothing to write home... More

People don't seem to know this place because it is 2 blocks off of Eastern. Don't be so short sited. This is a low key restaurant but the food is amazing. If you're looking for something a little less expensive than Ikaros, this is your place. It's BYOB and they say they charge a corking fee but I haven't experienced... More

Followed past reviews for Greek food and found Samos. Great bread with Tzatziki, grilled octopus and fried calamari. All the other food looked great, lots of smiling faces. Great fast service, nice folks. Easy parking. BYOB, but the liquor store is around the corner and delivers! Easy access from the highway in Greektown from 95 or 895, right off Eastern... More

We went to Samos at 12:15 on a Friday afternoon; there were several empty tables. The waitresses barely greeted us, then became very evasive as if serving us was "our" privilege. A table of four young ladies came in fifteen minutes after our table of two and were served their cooked food before our salads. The salads, shrimp, and spinach... More

Samos is a jewel, thats why people wait in line for a table. No reservations are accepted and there are only 18 tables. Everything is made from scratch. The greek salad is the best we have had anywhere. The augolemono soup is not to be missed. The seafood santorini was delicious. All portions are generous. They don't accept credit cards... More

Samos restaurant is the best spot for Greek food in Baltimore! Really generous portions, fresh and flavourful food, excellent menu. This was my first visit of many (I hope). The moussaka was absolutely beautiful with a fresh Greek salad on the side. Pita is cooked perfectly with really tasty dip choices. Iced tea is fresh brewed and delicious (sweet and... More
