I enjoyed a nice meal on the deck. I was traveling for work and dined alone. My server was excellent and attentive; my food was tasty and the portion was large.

Great place for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The specialty is Greek food but they also have a wide selection of other choices. I recommend the souvlaki sandwich for lunch. Nice view of Dunkirk Harbor. Take a walk around the harbor before or after your meal.

I've been Demetris dozens of times; always a tasty meal. Feta omelet, Greek chicken salad, homemade soup, pita grilled to perfection...friendly service and a great view. Families are welcome.
