We enjoyed a delicious dinner at The Happy Greek Restaurant and our service was excellent. I had the Spicy Beef on Couscous and my wife had the Gyro Salad. Our food arrived quickly and both meals were well-prepared and flavorful. The portions were filling and left no room for dessert. Entrees were moderately priced and my wife returned the next...

There were 11 of us that went here, but we sat at three separate tables. The calamari and dolmades were very good, but the melintzanosalata (eggplant) spread was very disappointing. Seafood and chicken pasta dishes were delicious. No one in our party complained about anything except the eggplant spread. There were menu entries that were more middle eastern than Greek.... More

My wife and I stopped in here for lunch while in the Short North and we were happy too. She selected the gyro platter which was delicious and abundant (plenty leftover to take home). I had Caesar salad and chose, among many options, fried calamari as a topping. While not your usual topping, it was exquisite. The calamari were perfection... More

A group of friends of mine meet here every Wednesday for dinner. The food is always spot on. The salads are large and fresh. The gyro's are delicious and the burgers are truly amazing. I can highly recommend this for a casual lunch or dinner spot. Service is great as well. Parking is a challenge. Small pay lot behind for... More

My wife and I were looking for a mom and pop type of restaurant to sit, eat, talk and enjoy each other's company without all the fuss. Happy Greek ended up being the perfect spot for good food, and service without all the loud noise.

An icon in Short North! We have been a constant visitor to short North for the past 15 years when in Columbus to visit family. Always include lunch or dinner at the Happy Greek. The food is excellent and the variety is endless.

This place was amazing! Entrees were delish. Plenty of choices for vegetarians, too. We sat on the patio and it was peaceful!

We went there during Italian festival. It was nice enough to sit at the patio which was surrounded me walks and very quiet. I ordered gyro, $9.99 and my partner ordered gyro plate, $14.99. They are very similar and I recommend to order just gyro. It came with crispy fries and it was plenty. I will definitely come back for... More

Based on the facade, I expected a "diner" experience. Instead, our group of five enjoyed a delightful, high-end lunch seated on the outdoor patio. I had the Schawarma over Hummus, and it was excellent!

Excellent gyros! Husband just had a Caesar salad but had saluted calamari added which was very tender and flavorful. This is a small, friendly, neighborhood kind of place. Nothing fancy, but good, authentic Greek food and a reasonable price. Wait staff were attentive and helpful.
