“Good food, friendly place”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

The Americana was suggested to us by friends several times before we tried it. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but inside is spacious and clean, with tables, booths, and a fireplace. The menu is large, including some Greek choices, with daily specials. We tried the fried shrimp and tenderloin beef tips with peppers and onions. Both were very good. Fried squash is sliced lengthwise and is a favorite of mine.Greek salad dressing (pink) was really good and made with olive oil. Service is attentive, friendly, with frequent refills of tea and food was hot. We were too full to order dessert, but were told they are all homemade! Dinner for two plus tax was under $21. We will definitely return!

“Home Cooking”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

There was a good variety on the menu and the service was very fast. The portions were better than average but the vegetables were bland. After adding salt, pepper and butter to the green beans, the flavor improved.

Since this was the first time we had eaten at this restaurant, we do plan to go back and try different items.

The waitress was very friendly and checked on us frequently and refilled our tea several times. There were two types of bread that came with the dinners.
