It was a nice place and the food is good but really expensive for dinner menu. Greek salad has only one olive. Really?

We were on the north side and this restaurant was nearly next door to where we were so we gave it a try. The service was good. Our server even brought us a few small pieces of the spicy lamb meat to see how spicy it was. I ordered a 1/2 spicy Gyro while my wife ordered the non-spicy. The... More

This has to be one of the strangest Greek/Mediterranean restaurants I have ever been too. From the moment the misguided waitress ushered us in it went downhill from there. I'm sure the food would have been better if not served by such a bitter and unhappy person. I had the mixed grill was flavorful but they must have put a... More

What a pleasant place. We love the food, and sat outside this evening with our dog to keep us company. The service is quick and our waiter is extremely attentive and polite. The food is plentiful and oh so good.

My wife visited here last week for lunch and raved about the chicken salad she ate. We decided to eat there on a Friday night for dinner.

I had 'shopped til I dropped' at Steinmart one day and dreaded the thought of going home to cook. As I got into my car, I realized I was right next to this Greek restaurant.

Smaller store-front restaurant with very pleasant customer service. The food was delicious, but the appetizers were on the tinier size. The prices were reasonable and the atmosphere agreeable.

Went in for dinner. The menu was a bit deceptive. It had a similar offering of food but included sawarma, lamb dishes, and hummus and the typical middle eastern fair. The food was ok but I felt like it has been made milder for the American flavor. I missed the traditional flavors of garlic and lemon that one would expect... More

A colleague of mine suggested this place because I enjoy Mediterranean food, especially Gyros. I've been 3x and only gotten the Gyros, so I apologize, usually I have better reviews of many items. Gyro and Spicy Gyro's are on point, though! Get them for sure. The whole Gyro is too big to eat in one sitting unless you are prepared... More
