Service was excellent, food just ok. Went on half price wine night, and they were out of several of their options.

The 5 dinners we ordered were excellent and we had 3 generations represented including a 2 year old, who absolutely loved it.

I had their lunch buffet before and despite the fact that I like the Mediterranean Cruise buffet better thought I would give them another try. I have a handicap of an arm but overall I get by rather well. I was getting my first items at the buffet, humus and upon closing the lid and moving down the line the... More

We get many different items when we're there. We get falafel, Gyros plate , and many other items. It comes with the cucumber sauce but we always ask for the garlic sauce and the house salad to be the garlic salad. Which is the Lebanese version.

My wife and I came in here this weekend for a little early Valentines getaway. We had never heard of this place but my wife found it in the entertainment guide. Both of us love Greek and Mediterranean food so we thought that we would give it a shot. We were not disappointed. The owner greeted us as soon as... More

Brought my husband and kids here after finding it on Trip Advisor after a basketball tournament. We had happy hour appetizers, calamari was so perfect. Had the drink named after the place- Ansari coctail I think. Was yummy and had a lot of alcoholin it for what it was. Kids enjoyed gyros and husband got steak and shrimp. I got... More

The food is tasty, but not the best I've had. The atmosphere knocks this down another star for me. The bar area smells strongly of smoke. I'm not sure if it is clinging to the patrons or leftover from the days when smoking was allowed indoors. I'm also not a fan of belly dancers walking around asking for tips. I... More

We wandered over during a snow storm at our nearby hotel. There was a bellydancer as well as tvs going a dart game and regular restaurant eating. We're not big on Mediterranean food so tried a steak appetizer that was great and from there we ordered a dinner to share. We had a medium spicy garlic shrimp with rice and... More
