I've been here many times and I'm always amazed at how fast the service is. The food is always excellent. My personal favorite is the lamb shank with spinach rice. We usually split it as it is a very generous portion. I know a lot of people who go to this place regularly and we do it for good reason.

I let my horse-loving stepsister pick a restaurant in Greektown. Should've known we'd land here! I've eaten here maybe three times over the past 20 years, and it's always been on point. This time, however, I was able to see the expansion and new (to me) decor, which strives for an intimate al fresco theme. It feels like you're at... More

Not bad great location. You can expect pretty good food. And the service is average. Get the spinach pie and all the different sauces they are very good. The chicken is a little dry. Other than that come on by and check it out

Before going to the casino, grab a bite of darn good Greek food. The waiters running around is entertainment in itself. Cant go wrong with any of the Greek standard dishes.

There are a large number of seats for the Friday Night crowd. We had a short wait and very good Greek food and with a fun and loud atmosphere. Go and enjoy your Greek experience in Detroit.

When in Detroit and want an authentic Greek meal you must stop here for a meal. The staff is friendly and the food is great. Easy walk from the inner loop parking lots.

There were three of us who arrived at Pegasus around 5:00 on a Saturday night. The restaurant is located in Greek Town, which is a bustling entertainment area of the city with casinos, shopping, night venues, and often street performers. We were seated right away. When we left around 6:30 there was a waiting line out the door. The food... More

Ate here recently before a Red Wing game, it was just so so. Ate herre several years ago and remembered it being very good. Maybe it was our food choices but none of us were that impressed with the food. Service was good, but we will try a different restaurant in Greek Town next time.

I've never had a bad dish at Pegasus! Authentic Greek food with tons of flavor. Good sized portions - neither of us could finish our food! Start it off with some Saginaki or Grape leaves and end with some amazing cheesecake (or a trip to the bakery). Excellent service; fast!!!

This place has the best saganiki cheese! We had the lamb and peas, lamb chops and spinach pie. All of the dishes were good. They brought lots of bread and water. The cheese and tazeki goes great with the bread, but they bring butter too. The service is fast when they are crowded. Our food came really fast. My friend... More
