We dined with a large party on a Saturday night. The place was packed and they seemed a little understaffed. We all ordered at the same time, but the food came out sporadically. Many people were done with their meal before the last person received their food. The food was just okay. Absolutely nothing to write home about. Service was... More

We went on a Saturday night late, after the dinner rush. It still took us two hours to sit, order, eat and pay. What a mess. It was cold where we were sitting and the food was just average. Over priced for the quality of food you get.

There was one place to go to, Olive Garden, with good pasta, unlimited salad and bread sticks. We was not disappointed everything was good and the... More

Management was initially helpful and took orders after being told no one stopped at the table for more than 10 minutes after being seated - food arrived cold and Drinks were not filled after initial order. No even a busy night - would not recommend this location

Nice family restaurant, authentic Greek fare, fresh salads etc.. Very good service, busy so booking is advised. Lots of parking and close the shopping areas at crossroads. I'll return on next visit

The Graden is always nice for a filling meal. I always over eat and the price is reasonable. The lobby was full but we got in pretty quickly.

Order was accurate, food was hot and tasty! Can't ask for much more! It was ready for me to pick up at the bar at the time it was promised.

I can't get over the bread and salad. Yummy...and you've never known bliss till you order a side of the salad dressing and dip your bread stick in it! My favorite now are the mussles as an entrée....shell all of them and eat with a spoon! You have TONS of delishious red sauce and garlic left over, TAKE IT WITH... More
