Staff will then take care of anything else you may need at the table including serving your meals. During peak hours you'll be seated by one of our staff. From there you will be served your meals at the table by one of our staff, they'll refill your drinks accordingly, provide you with your wine glasses and/or frosted beer mugs. There are no fees for bringing your own wine or beer to drink. You may order additional items from any one of our staff working the floor or you are welcome to return to the POS at your leisure to order anything else you would like. Your visit can be as "formal" or "informal" as you would like it to be.

“Love this place”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

I have been going here since the opening a year ago. Authentic Greek food that is prepared very well! I have never been disappointed and I go here about once a week. It is not fancy, it is a cafeteria line format, but the food is excellent, as are the counter people and the owner, who is frequently present.

The octopus salad, the lemon rice soup, the stuffed grape leaves, the souvlaki, the swordfish are all excellent and i could keep eating forever!

The desserts are crazy good! I don't even like dessert and I still like these....

Eat here, you will like it!

“Good food, but prefer takeout”
Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

The food is pretty decent Greek food, but I find the restaurant design cold, hard, and therefor loud, so we just do takeout and eat at home.

“Fantastic food!!”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

Try to visit when the weather is good and you can sit and eat on their patio. We ate there both Tuesday and Thursday, and Tuesday was less crowded. I had the best grilled octopus I've had in awhile. Their fried calamari was outstanding. We brought our own wine and it was a great meal at moderate prices. My husband had 2 different gyro's and enjoyed them. The deserts look great, but we didn't partake.

“A Must Do and Do Over”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

If you like Greek food or willing to try something new, this is a MUST DO! Everything is made to order and so fresh and delicious. The staff are very polite and cater to every detail of service. The atmosphere is delightful- inside or outside dining is available. The desserts are great! It is so difficult to just select one, so I suggest one for there and one to go! I have tried most of the entrees- no disappointments. A great place for any occasion or no occasion- Top of my list!

“Great Greek BYOB”
Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

Family run, friendly, a little light on ambiance, but the food is excellent. Try the Baklava Cheesecake! Not to be missed.
