My husband and I stopped in for breakfast. My daughter and I used to stop here for dinner when I used to take her to medical appointments. I haven't been here in a while but it's still the same - which is a good thing. Today I had the feta omelet with homefries and coffee. My husband had the two... More

Blue Dolphin has been around for many years and has always been a local staple. It is your typical greek restaurant. Good portions for not a whole lot of coin. Staff has always been engaging and seem to be pleasant. All in all, not a bad place to grab a bite to eat. Give them a try!

We stop at the Blue Dolphin several times a year while on route from Philly to WNY. Our favorites are the Greek stuffed meatloaf and the Spanikopita. Both can be accompanied by an excellent Greek salad. Service is friendly and pretty dependable. You may have to wait for a table around holiday weekends. Great place?

My wife and I stopped here around 8 pm as we were passing through the Southern Tier. The wait staff was very pleasant, friendly and accommodating. The food was excellent and we had a very enjoyable experience. I highly recommend this restaurant.

My folks have been coming here for almost three decades. Food is awesome. Service is friendly and efficient. Everyone now has a reason to take exit 66 off of route 17 in Apalachin.

As stop along the way between Corning New York and Pennsylvania, we decided to stop for lunch. We were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food and the busyness of this establishment on a rainy, dreary Thursday. We took this as a good sign of what was to come and we were not mistaken. The food was hot, the... More

5 people in our party - all meals were delicious and plentiful. Minus 1 in the ratings scale because we thought the place could use some updating and the bathrooms were not very clean.

They offer everything from sandwiches and salads to full blown big seafood dinners. Lots of daily specials, 2 or 3 different soups every day. Our waitress was very attentive, checked on us several times. And you get a loaf of warm Greek bread! Yum!

You will not go home hungry from this place- huge portions with soup or salad included. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the desserts are to die for! HUGE - I never saw such big pieces of cake and pie in a restaurant. Just an outstanding experience with the exception of the Mexican waitress who was very inattentive and slow.

Thank 2seniorcitizens
