Family-owned and operated Greek restaurant with traditional fare. Always a welcoming atmosphere where Angie & Tom always make you feel like family.

Pros: wonderful food and service. Nicely decorated. Easy to carry on a conversation. Prices: a tad high for the area but not terrible. Cons: some of the booth cushions need to be repadded. Maybe play a greater selection of Greek tunes. Love it there. We had a great time!
