We had a lousy cold breakfast the first day we were there. Lunch and supper was ok. The staff was great. The place was clean. We would go back again. This is a Greek sit down full meal kind of place. Not like the fast food places.

For a long time this place has been the scene for business meeting over lunch and dinner. Good variety and generous portions. My standard is the grilled tilapia. The desert items often leave asking for a take home box, they can get quite big. Good value.

At first glance, this place looks like just another run of the mill place to eat a decent meal. However, the food portions are excellent ...not to mention tastes great. The lady (Maria) that waited on me had amazing attention to detail. She was also very professional. The amount of food I received for what I paid was spectacular. Five... More

My family and I have been going to this restaurant for over 25 years when in a pinch for a good meal, if cooking isn't an option. Their menu is large and offers a wide variety of foods from breakfast items to dinner specials, served from the time they open til they close. The restaurant part is quite large, and... More
