We need more options, and this place is a welcome addition. No attitude, reasonable prices, fast service, and good food. BYO is a great option

The Greek is still fairly new, owned by the same folks who own the legendary Waffle Shoppe nearby. It is hard to describe the Greek - you order at the counter, get a table, and they bring the food to you. The food is great, though the selection a bit limited. Our children both like the food also, a big plus in any restaurant. It is also BYOB, which is nice. The decor is fascinating with all the faux finishes, you might find yourself brushing the wall with your fingertips trying to figure out if the stone is real.

This was a wonderful addition to the State College dining scene when it opened; food was authentic, fresh and tasty. It was relatively inexpensive, and you got the excitement of ordering it from the board, finding your own seating, and then having it brought to you. The new, very traditional, we'll take you to your seat, give you a menu, and then order, etc., just doesn't work, IMHO.

The space was beautifully redone to work with the original format; it doesn't work now. The registers and the "order board" are still there, so it looks out of place for "sit-down and order" dining. Price points moved up, and w/tips, it is no longer a bargain, nor is it as much "fun". The wait times are much longer at every step. The dishes are basically the same.

Bottom line, it is more expensive, slower, and not as much fun for the same food in a space that no longer fits. I will be surprised if it lasts in this format.
