Reviewed July 31, 2012

We return every year to Greek Islands. It never loses it's charm welcoming hospitality and wonderful dishes. We like all of the specialties. Favorites are dolmathes and mousaka.

“Greek Islands Restaurant - Often Copied, Never Equaled”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

If you really like authentic Greek food, Greek Islands is the place for you. We have tried many Greek restaurants, but this is the best hands down. Our party consisted of my wife and I, our son, and our grandson, a multigenerational opinion. We went for an early lunch.

The menu is extensive so we started out with the saganaki, fried flaming cheese. This was the best ever, although without the usual showmanship (OPA!). A Greek dip and pita were served gratis. It was so delicious that we tried to pry the ingredients from the owner, who was very vague about her special dip. My wife will be experimenting at home to get close to it.

We each ordered a different dish with the idea of sharing. Greek spaghetti (butter, feta, mizithra and choice of meat or marinara) served with a salad, lamb souvlaki, and baked lasagna. While we did share, each of us was hesitant to share more than a bite, as each of us loved the dish we ordered.

By the time we left the restaurant was full of what seemed to me to be locals. Greek Islands is not a fancy, formal dining experience, but go for the food and very friendly service and pride of ownership. The prices are not cheap (a majority of the entrees are $15.95) but not overly priced for a visit to Greece for one of the finest dining experiences we have had.

Went to lunch many times, with several coworkers, who had a different taste than mine. None of us were dissatsified with our meals or service.

“Lovely family run restaurant with great food and value”
Reviewed July 20, 2012 via mobile

I've eaten here every time we visit Anacortes. It's a modest restaurant with Rolls Royce quality food. The rack of lamb, souvlaki, and baked spaghetti are world-class. Say hi to Anna, and don't be surprised if she sends you home with something extra. After all, she's Greek and she treats me like family.
