loved this restaurant - sat near the window but outside seating would have been fine on that cool breezy day - the ducks were floating by - the food was amazing - had a greek salad and some bread - would go back again when i am in the area.

Should be in this place's title. You know, when you walk in past the musician and the tables and the bar, and slip past people who are intoxicated by the surroundings, or just plain intoxicated, and get to your table, you feel like you are a part of what is happening. You are. Everything on the menu is great. I... More

We stopped here for lunch on our way back to Fort Lauderdale airport. Everything was delicious and fresh. They start you off with fresh hummus and bread. The bread was ok, but the hummus was great. Hubs got the pork chops smothered in spinach and feta for lunch. I got a small Greek salad with gyro meat, and my in-laws... More

Visited this restaurant for a late lunch, this is one of our favorite Greek restaurants. You have the option of sitting inside or outside. Outdoor dinning is along the water where you can see ducks swimming by and an occasional fish jumping. It is quiet and relaxing in this area. There are fans on the patio area to keep you... More

This is our local Greek restaurant. We've eaten here at least 30 times. The food isn't the very top tier of Greek cuisine, but it is good, plentiful & reasonably priced. Service is always pleasant. We highly recommend the pork chops which are covered in fresh spinach and feta cheese - two enormous pork chops which are juicy & delicious.... More

Visiting Fort Lauderdale area with a vegetarian- figured we'd try this place as it had many choices for him. Wow were we pleasantly surprised. Fabulous food and great service. Prices were reasonable also. Best Souvlaki I have ever had....grilled chicken skewers grilled on what looked like an open fire it was cooked to perfection. Got the platter so it came... More

My family went to My Big Fat Greek Restaurant after looking for local places on Trip Advisor. Another great recommendation. As some other reviewers stated the place appears a tad run down, but do not let you stop from going. The food was great, the wait staff very friendly and courteous and timely. I am not a big humus fan,... More

Food was well prepared , fresh and very authentic. The wait was long...next time I plan to make reservations. There was belly dancing and also the waiters danced. Could have missed that...as it was intrusive to the dinning experience. We went there for the food...not for dinner theatre...but we will go back during the week ....when there is no entertainment.
