My daughter and I stopped in for some Saganaki while my wife hit the slot machines. We had a great time, we were there for about an hour. It was relatively empty but still fun.

The setting is a little rustic giving it an air of authenticity. The menu features many Greek favourites. Our waiter was truly exceptional in handling our large, rowdy group. He made all the difference to our experience. The servings are very large and tasty. Meat is clearly their specialty as I did not think much of the vegetables. Still, all... More

I have not been to Detroit in over 10 years but always remember the great Greek food. I decided to go to Pegasus for dinner. I arrived and was greeted politely and was seated. I decided to order the Saganaki cheese as an appetizer it was served flaming table side my only complaint was that it was only served with... More

We had the best evening at Pegasus! There was parking nearby at 707 Lafayette for only $10. Arriving at 6 p.m. seemed to help because we arrived before the rush. A very large basket of bread was served before we even ordered. The "Opa" goat cheese was incredibly delicious and after we devoured it we realized why so many tables... More

We (2 in our party) were greeted at the entrance to the restaurant & taken to a booth adjacent 2 large tables - one with a party of 7, the other a party of 8. Would have preferred an alternative location in the establishment as it was a Monday night & was not anywhere near capacity (didn't ask, so that's... More

These guys have no club with servicing large group. We were 35 ppl with a lot kids and these guys have no idea how split checks. Service was slow and not that good. The food was good. The lamb shank was great.

We eat here mostly every time we are in Detroit.The portions are large and the food fantastic. The octopus is best I have ever had. Sometimes the older waiters are rude and unfriendly, but overall we really enjoy eating here.

It's attached to the Greek town Casino. The food was good and our server was prompt, helpful and friendly. Large restaurant. We were there on a Friday night right before 6pm and got a table right away.

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
