The Greek Islands serves mostly in their charming patio tho therebare tables inside. It feels like you are in a small restaurant in Athens with traditional music and grape arbors. The food is among the best Greek food I've even had - I had grilled octopus which was outstanding. Varied wine list with good selection by the glass. Service prompt friendly and not overpowering.

Having frequented many Greek Restaurants in the Greek section of Baltimore, we were pleasantly surprised to find excellent Greek food here. Good menu and healthy portions made this an outstanding meal.

We went twice this winter to Greek Islands, on the recommendation of some friends.
The first time, we were absolutely delighted. We sat in the garden, with plentiful heat lamps and firepits, if there’s a chill in the air Both the husband and I (and one of our friends) ordered the lamb shank in clay pot entree, which we LOVED! So tender, so succulent, so flavorful! Wow! Another of our guests had the chicken in the clay pot , and he loved it too.
We started with an assortment of appetizers: the grilled octopus was excellent. The hummus was good. Unfortunately, they were out of the taramosalata.
On our second visit, the lamb shank was not available, so we were disappointed with the fish we chose as a substitute.
The weather also was cool, so we opted to eat in one of their dining rooms. It was pleasant enough — feeling like a real taverna setting — but nothing like as enchanting as the garden.

Amazing greek food, super menu, dishes extremely authentic and great wait staff. Huge wine list and very reasonable prices.

Avgolemono soup was the best we ever had & served hot (which is rare). So many choices we ordered several appetizers for lunch, went back the same day for dinner for the main entrees. Outdoor and indoor dining with a staff that aims to please.

If you like Greek food, it's a must. If you hadn't tried Greek food - this is the place to go for it!
