Some friends told us how much they enjoyed this place and that they were sad to learn that it was going away and being turned into a QT gas station. So we decided to check it out before they closed the doors to see what the experience was like. Frankly, we thought it was just OK. I went with the... More

We like going to this place for lots of choices in food selections. It is large place but can be very busy on Sunday brunch time. I love the Greek salad with gyro meat. Sadly this place will be closing towards the end of the year? and be turned into a gas station mini mart? Not sure when this will... More

This is a great go-to restaurant for my family. The menu is broad enough to cover everyone's interest. My boys love the pizza (beyond amazing - fresh crust and ingredients), my mother-in-law loves the gyros and my husband is always trying the daily specials. It's the salads for me (love the Aegean Chicken Salad). Great breakfast items but you will... More

My son and husband and I went for a late lunch. We all had the same thing: the gyro plate and it was amazing. For an entree we had the flaming saganaki cheese with pita. We had baklava for dessert. Everything excellent. The waiter was very friendly and very attentive to or needs. On the way out we bought Greek... More

Great place to end a long day of traveling. We were late and they were soon to close but treated us like we had all night. Great staff! It's sort of like a greek dinner on steroids but with the atmosphere and food quality of a nice restaurant. They offer a long list of greek specialties. Drive by the box... More

The Acropolis is a place you can go and get wonderful food...anything from Gyros to Beef Tips, from Tilapia to Pizza. Staff are always attentive and friendly. Breakfast choices are also great. Be sure you check out the desert case as you enter.

This is a typical Greek restaurant. The food is good and the service is better. The Yero is great. I heard that it is closing soon. Not sure, but I hope not. A must go to place when at the lake.

The ambiance/atmosphere is the only thing that's average here. The staff is pleasant and efficient; but the food is their forte. They have a good variation of menu items - something sure to please just about everyone. We had the rack of lamb and it was perfectly cooked (medium rare) and delicious. And very reasonably priced! The avgolemono soup is... More

This was our 5th visit to the Acropolis and once again we were delighted. We have decided to make this a regular stop on our way down interstate 77. The wait staff is professional, the food is excellent, and the environment is friendly. The menu contains all your Greek favorites, plus some American favorites too. I had the moussaka with... More
