I tried Acropolis Greek Taverna on a whim while shopping along Central Ave. It turned out to be a great choice. My Greek burger (the day's special) was more than I could handle, thanks to excellent fries and a side Greek salad. Great value, excellent lunch.

Food was great once we got it. Took WAY too long for service, both with drink refills and food delivery, especially when there were only about 10 tables being served in the middle of the afternoon. I'd go back, but probably to the Ybor location. Solid place in Tampa. Hope the one at UTC is impressive?

We had dinner and a great time at the Acropolis Greek Taverna in St. Petersburg. The eggplant starter was out of this world. Our meals were also good, but I did feel the chefs relied a bit too much on salt and garlic to season the meals (at least the skewers we had). With that said, it was tasty enough,... More

This was the second time that I have had dinner here. The first time I enjoyed the octopus. It was tender and well seasoned. My sister had the calamari which was heavily breaded and not tender.

Were were encouraged to try this restaurant for great Greek food and found it average, at best. The appetizers were delicious.

Because of the abundant sea life in St. Petersburg Fl Bay area, a meal here will rival many seaside tavernas in Greece. Our waitress this time told us one of her customers who sometimes stops by before work for his "Greek penicillin", also known as agavelemou soup. Dine like a god or goddess!

Great food, friendly, competent service and moderate prices. Over the past 3 years we've stopped by several times during our month long stay for a lunch of a few appetizers to full dinners and nothing has ever been a disappointment. Iff you think Greek food is a choice between souvlaki and chee-burger Acropolis will change your thinking fast.

My husband and I thouroghly enjoyed dinner at the acropolis. Very authentic Greek food. Casual and low key. We did sit outside because he weather was good, some good people watching. Our server Sabrina was great, she made nice recommendations.
