“One of our favorite places”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

We end up here quite often. The service is always very, very good. They are friendly and always returning to your table to check on you. The food is fresh, made to order and generous portions. The menu has a great variety and the prices are very reasonable. They have a full bar if you would like an adult beverage. Lots of tv monitors. This is a great place for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

“Just your average Greek restaurant”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

We went with a group of 16 and the place was crowded. We were squashed in a corner and could hardly move. The waitress was very helpful and attentive. The food not so good. The vegetarian moussaka and it was sticky and overcooked, the spanakotiropita was so greasy and soft, not crispy, I think it had been microwaved. The special was lamp medallions and they were full of gristle. I would not go back here considering the prices and the terrible quality of food

“Amazing food!!”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

They have it all, warm greetings, great service, and delicious food!! Brunch on the weekends is amazing by far, it has something for everyone, my kids love it too, fresh fruit, eggs, amazing waffles, omelets made to order it's endless, they aim to please! I've even joined friends for drinks and appetizers! The calamari can be fried or sautéed, not sure which I like best yet, their both so delicious!! Octopus that makes you feel like your In the Mediterranean, and did I mention the perch, love it! The lamp chops are my husbands favorites, they melt in your mouth! Can't say enough about Big Tommy's!! I've gone for lunch too, and the Big Tommy's salad with dill & chicken has had my lunch partners going back! They have even set up family style dinner at the last minute for small groups I've come in with! Love Big Tommy's Parthenon, always amazes me on what they can do, and the food is always delicious! Thanks Big Tommy's Parthenon, and hats off to the chef!!

“Ok”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

Great service, grape leaves sucked...sent it back. The rest was good on the trio plate. Gyro appetizer was plentiful. Tarmasolata (not sure on the spelling), was not good. I miss Cyrpus Tavern in Greek Town. No hurry to go back there.
