“Tired, outdated. In need of Rescue....”
Reviewed March 14, 2012

Overall, the place made me looking to exit asap. If it hadn't been for the fact that 2 of my friends 'loved' this place, I'd have been long gone. Decor is lack luster, dusty and with no discernible theme. The bar menu was a laminated sheet with peeling, curled edges. The waitstaff appeared tired and resigned. The food choices were boring, the prices inconsistent with the portion and quality. Time to freshen the fry oil please. Honestly, the only moment there may have been ambiance is when they dimmed the lights. BTW...there were recent health issues exposed on local TV during the 11pm news.

“Used to be nice -- don't bother”
Reviewed December 28, 2011

Don't know what happened to the place. It was a favorite for years then went down hill fast. Food is mediocre, staff acts like they are half asleep, prices not consistent with the lousy food.

Get treated like family here in a casual atmosphere. Very good food from a varied menu and great service.

“Americanized greek food”
Reviewed December 13, 2006

I was there only once - had a spinokopita - it was served with rice on a side. Pie itslef was not bad, rice was blend. Soup was tasty but not quite authentic comparing to my other greek food experiences. My utensils were not very clean - had to ask for them to be replaced. Overall, not bad, especiialy if you are looking for americanized version of greek cuisine. Personally, I wasn't very impressed. Prices were $8-14 on average.
