Average place, decent service. The menu is typical diner fare, with breakfast, burgers and sandwiches, and some Greek specialties. Not bad, but nothing to rave about.

Who knew? A lovely small town restaurant with a great location on the water. The gyro platter is wonderful….chicken marinated in a special sauce served with lots of salad makings. We prefer the casual downstairs or outside in the balmy months. Many expensive restaurants could take a lesson from the servers here -- they are timely, smart, knowledgeable and friendly. This is the "go to" restaurant in Dunkirk! And you can walk along the adjacent dock afterwards and admire the boats and buy an ice cream cone across the street.

Haven't been to Demetri's since probably last year sometime. Was pleasantly surprised with the remodeling they have done. Long overdue, and looks very nice. Good Job!!

I am a local so I have been to Demetri's many times. The lunch and dinner foods are average, some better than others but, in my opinion, nothing outstanding nor terrible. BUT, I think they serve the best breakfast, and especially the best omelets of anyplace in the area, including chain restaurants and local places. And, the price for a huge omelet is right; $7.99 includes home fries and toast. Almost without fail, the wait staff is pleasant and no one pushes you out the door. Coffee refills are never a problem. This is not fine dining, it's a local (and well-used) family restaurant, so if you come into the experience with that in mind, I don't think you'll go away disappointed.

Good breakfast and lunch place considering the very few options around. Nice breakfast special daily Very nice patio in the summer with tiki bar where live entertainment really packs them in during summer season. Convenient pier location with plenty of parking. Across from new so-called boardwalk, which is an over-priced joke.
