Description: Nick first opened its doors in March 2007 with owners, Nick Samiotis and his daughter, Eviania Davey, who are no strangers to the restaurant industry. Nick has been a restauranteur for over 35 years, owning and operating multiple restaurants throughout the Northern Virginia region. Eviania grew up in the family restaurants, understanding the business from the bottom up. In July of 2012, Nick and Eviania decided that the Brambleton area, in which Nick's Corner Grill is located, needed something differnet. They decided to close the restaurant for three week, in order to start theses changes. With a completely new cuisine, decor and atmosphere, Nick and Eviania created and re-opened a restaurant that was authentic to Nick's homeland of Greece. Since re-opening, Nick and Eviania couldn't be more happier with the tremendous support and feedback and would like everyone to feel as though their "home" is the customer's home as well.

Full bar and many Microbrews to choose from.
Had the dolmades and Lamb shank with chili green beens and pita
Ate at the bar and was served by Romeo. He went out of his way to explain the menu and point out his favorite dishes. Services was excellent and the food passes the authenticity test.
Give it a try!

We are here early on a Friday night and the service was atrocious. The restaurant was half empty, but it took over an hour for our food to arrive. The food itself was only mediocre at best. We were told that the restaurant was in the middle of changing it's menu, but that should not be an excuse for bad food.

I just went again last weekend (Jan 31 2016) and was rather disappointed. Apparently, the restaurant has changed hands or changed staff and, unfortunately, although they are very nice and tried to be accommodating, the staff did not know about Greek food very well. And for some reason they took taramasalata off the menu. That's a cold appetizer made with fish roe. Every real Greek restaurant has it. The spanakopita filo was tough and even burned a bit. But the lemon potatoes were still great! So all in all, I was disappointed and will go to my other favorite Greek restaurant in Manassas now.

Wonderful restaurant! I love that they seat you quickly and immediately bring out some authentic hummus and pita chips prior to ordering. They treat you like family here and the food is both delicious and authentic. The pita chips are very unique... nothing you can buy anywhere. I LOVE the saganaki hot appetizer... it's fried cheese fresh from the skillet with some lemon juice and it's crazy delicious... so it's a MUST TRY for cheese lovers. The Meze Appetizer Sampler is a good starter too if you like the variety like we do! Also try their gyros and mixed grill if you love sampling different meats. Squeeze some fresh lime and lemon on the meats and/or try it with their yogurt and tzatziki sauces and you will be very happy. My husband ordered the Mediterranean Sampler which was also delicious. Brought family in from Richmond here when they came to visit and they loved it as well!! My brother-in-law let me try some of the Pastitsio and it was great especially if you love lasagna like I do...Evi the owner is very sweet... great experience overall and we will continue coming back!

Based on a friend's recommendation I randomly decided to drop in here on a Saturday night and stumbled on a live one-man acoustic gig. The secret must have been out because droves of people swarmed in as soon as the music began to play.

The Greek salad was a 'bit rough, similar to what you'd expect in a bar, I did notice however that people were literally devouring Swarma and other more traditional dishes, I guess you get rewarded for taking risks on the menu here.

The crowd was an interesting mix, approximately half of the people were in the mix, the other half 'more isolated with their mate or date.

In respect to specials you will find $2.50 domestic bottles early in the night but that ends before the live entertainment begins.
