My folks have been coming here for almost three decades. Food is awesome. Service is friendly and efficient. Everyone now has a reason to take exit 66 off of route 17 in Apalachin.

As stop along the way between Corning New York and Pennsylvania, we decided to stop for lunch. We were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food and the busyness of this establishment on a rainy, dreary Thursday. We took this as a good sign of what was to come and we were not mistaken. The food was hot, the... More

5 people in our party - all meals were delicious and plentiful. Minus 1 in the ratings scale because we thought the place could use some updating and the bathrooms were not very clean.

They offer everything from sandwiches and salads to full blown big seafood dinners. Lots of daily specials, 2 or 3 different soups every day. Our waitress was very attentive, checked on us several times. And you get a loaf of warm Greek bread! Yum!

You will not go home hungry from this place- huge portions with soup or salad included. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the desserts are to die for! HUGE - I never saw such big pieces of cake and pie in a restaurant. Just an outstanding experience with the exception of the Mexican waitress who was very inattentive and slow.

I stopped here while traveling through town. I sat at the counter and the service was very slow food was okay but once again this service was very very slow.

If you are in Apalachin, New York...be sure to dine at this restaurant. There is an extensive menu and you won't believe the desserts. I had one of the best Rueben sandwiches that I have ever eaten, the coleslaw was delicious and the coconut cake was great. Service was excellent. Love the fact that it was right next to my... More

This local institution continues to serve basic good food in huge quantities to neighborhood regulars and travelers at very reasonable prices. It is especially a popular place for breakfast, while the other mealtimes seem to attract a regular crowd. Right off Rt. 17 at the Apalachin exit makes it a convenient stop, with a gas station and convenience store nearby... More

Restaurant is conveniently located next to two hotels and I happened to be staying on one of them so I had dinner here twice and breakfast once during my stay. The food is good (standard traditional Greek fare and other dishes) and very reasonably priced. Portion sizes are average to large so you may take some home to enjoy later.... More
