“Large menu, lots of food...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

This is one of my in-laws favorite places to go for lunch or dinner. I have been there many times.
The menu is really huge and the portions are even bigger, you will go home with at "doggie bag"!
The wait staff are very friendly, and most of them have been there for years, a popular place for the locals(North Fort Myers). The full spectrum of ages dine here from the very old, along big families. Their prices are very good, and if you order from the dinner menu it includes home made soup, salad,rolls,potato, veg, and dessert.(ice cream, sherbet, rice pudding) On the holiday's like Thanksgiving, Christmas etc.. the do limit their menu, because of the volume of customers.

“Good food and value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

Meals are good and reasonably priced. Wait staff is friendly and competent. The facility is "shopworn". In need of a good sprucing up. On the other hand if management spent thousands of dollars on the facility, then I suppose the price of meals would increase accordingly.

“Good food low prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012

I have been there many times over 12 years. I have never been disappointed. The portions are huge. The food is great, and the variety is diverse. The owners are Greek, and that adds to the experience in that I grew up in the Boston area, and my first job was working in a diner after school. I live no where near North Fort Myers, but still go there at least twice a week.

“A full course dinner at a reasonable price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012

First time here. There was good, friendly service. You get soup, salad and entree with sides and dessert. What's not to like. They have a wide assortment of foods in addition to traditional Greek fare. The menu has steaks, chops, seafood and pasta dishes. The wine is a little pricey, but they have to make their money somewhere.

“Great portions, large selection, loyal following, just not exciting to us”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

This is really a template for average. Nothing to write home about.. I think we would go here more if this had some pep and spark. It is however JUST AVERAGE. Wildly large selection of dishes and portions that are always far too large than they need to be. Nice people.
