If you love great Greek food or want to try it for the first time, this is the place to go. This place is really popular; there was a line to get in, but people were seated very quickly. The service here is excellent, attentive and fast-paced. There were six of us for dinner. We shared a Greek salad which... More

We went during the lunch hours as it was always very busy during the evening hours. Try the 1/2 chicken and Greek salad.

Dis is the place. We come to So. Florida JUST to eat here! Everything is authentic, service is quick, but you must wait outside a while to get in - any time - any day. So worth the wait. Crispy fresh spanokopita, the best grilled lamb chops around. Their potato, green bean, squash veggie mix is spiced so right it... More

Absolutely delicious food. The lamb chops are to die for. Expect quite a bit of garlic in most dishes and get there early as the place gets crowded very quickly.

Service was OK, some dishes under salted, some over salted, but each was generally pretty good. This place is large and very busy, but does provide a fun environment with good food.

Authentic Greek dishes well executed at a fair price. Never a bad dish with happy efficient service in a bustling setting. The fact that there is always a line out the door, even on weeknights when other places are half empty, tells you all you need to know.

We always make it a pint to dine at Greek Islands whenever we are in town. We have dined there many times and celebrated several New Years Eve, anniversaries and birthdays here. Our most recent trip was to celebrate my birthday and we arrived early on a Saturday evening around 4:45. They were not busy inside at all and patio... More

They don't take reservations but the food is worth the wait. We love getting a bunch of apps and sharing. The octopus, spanakopita, ribs, shrimp and a couple of salads were perfect for 3 of us. I love this place.

Went with another couple on a Friday night. Don't take reservations so you have to wait but not long! The lamb chops and lamb shanks were outstanding as was the Greek salad. Great food, great service...add this to your list!

We are snow birds and this is one of our favorite restaurants in Ft Lauderdale. Love the 1/2 chicken, garlic shrimp, ribs, and lamb chops. Lunch is less expensive, but the same outstanding food. It's always our first choice to take friends- large portions and great service! Have been coming here for the last 6 winters and absolutely love it!
