We didn't start out with the intention of eating so much Greek/Mediterranean food in Chicago, but are so glad that we did! We were in the neighborhood waiting for our tour of DePaul University to start, and wanted to eat outside. They have a nice...More

This restaurant has always been great. I was with friends today and we decided to eat here. Simple restaurant with fantastic Greek food. Located in a great neighborhood. On a beautiful day, you probably won't get a seat outside. Please, please order their Greek fries...More

Wow, these Greeks really fill a plate. We did not leave hungry. In fact we had left overs to feed us all the next day. My gyro was delicious. The chicken plate, juicy. Friendly staff. Great dinner experience.

If all you want is gyros or a burger this place is probably fine. Everything was very bland and there were few traditional Greek dishes on the menu. I'm sure there is much better Greek food to be had in Chicago.

We live between Lincoln Park and Greek Town and usually end up going to Greek Town for Greek food. A friend from Lincoln Park likes The Athenian Room, so we went with her. Wow, what a great neighborhood restaurant! It was a little more casual...More
