We arrived about 7:30 P.M. on a Thursday evening and they were about half full. Excellent hostess and waitress, but it went downhill from there. My wife ordered a meal with a baked potato; we were told they were out of baked potatoes. After waiting...More

Food looked decent. I made the wrong choice in ordering the cold salmon plate. I thought it would be a smoked salmon, but it was a canned salmon with bone fragments. I had a hard time stomaching the meal. I ordered a side salad, which...More

Had lunch here recently with an employee. We both ordered the hot turkey sandwich (open-faced). There was some funky spice in the dressing that neither of us could identify that just did not belong there. One of the least appetizing hot turkey sandwiches I have...More

That's just a saying, but the restaurant is Greek owned. I love it because it's on the beaten path and offers breakfast, lunch and dinner. The price isn't out of this world and the portions definitely match the price. Breakfast has always been my favorite...More

Returning from Wisconsin Dells we needed a place to feed 45 hungry senior citizens. Even though it was close to closing time the manager said come on in! 3 waitresses stayed past their quitting time to accommodate us. And, bonus... The food was excellent!

I've always enjoyed this restaurant over the years and my most recent visit didn't disappoint. Don't recall it being so pricey but it was worth it. Family outing (7 people) received fast and friendly service.

I eat here often since I work nearby and have always found a fabulous selection of foods on the menu along with tasty desserts. Breakfast menu is especially good; food is plentiful and service is great.

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...More

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...More
