This restaurant is best known for its gyros (beef $4.50, grilled chicken $6.99) and Athenian Salads ($5.99). The menu also includes other Greek and American salads, sandwiches and entrees. Start with Saganaki ($5.99), a flamed cheese appetizer and finish with a piece of homemade Baklava ($2.75). A fully-stocked bar offers the usual beverages in addition to imported Greek wines and beers. The restaurant has a casual, family-style atmosphere, so bring the kids. A party room is available.
The dressing is fantastic! Spicy and sharp. It is even available for purchase to take home.
The Pastich (or however you spell it) is the greek version of comfort food and is even better vegetarian.
The service is fast and friendly.
Ambiance: Eh. Corny murals.
They have a lot of good food and you owe it to yourself to try something different every time you go there! You have to resist the temptation to order the same thing ever time as there is much to discover.
We go at least every other month for the good food and very pleasant atmosphere. The staff is friendly and attentive, the food is always very good. I like the menu choices - you can have a delicious salad or a real meat-and-potatoes meal. We're been going there about 20 years now, and it's always a treat.
Tasty gyros, great salads! Love the greek fries. Try the Kataife (looks like a shredded wheat biscuits, tastes like baklava!). Yummy! In fact, if sounds so good, I think we're gonna go there tonight. Have the greek cesar salad, it's great! And don't forget the flaming cheese (saganaki). Opa!
I loved this place. I had just moved to town and had been trying to explore the restaurants in the area. I saw an add for it in the phone book and decided to give it a try. Mind you, I had never had Greek food before, but thought Id give it a try. In all my years of eating out, this was BY FAR the best restaurant I have EVER been to. I didnt go during the busy dinner hour ( after 5pm) so the place was not packed. The service was great. The staff was so friendly, and the enviroment was VERY relaxing. They played authenic Grecian music on the sound system, and the decor was very Greek. I loved it. The food was great, and they offer vegetarian meals that are not bland. The portions are quite large, so expect to have to take some home. Price wise, two people will cost between $20-$30 ( addition for alcohol), but it was well worth it. Would be a great place for an early meal or a date.
I fell in love with Greek food while living in Greece for 2 years. The Greek Islands is the closest I've come to the ambiance, taste and hospitality of a Greek restaurant. Great service, authentic Greek food, friendly staff.
I just love this place. They try very hard to please everyone who comes in. Very gracious proprietors who serve generous portions at very reasonable prices. It is not uncommon to see several large parties all at once and that tends to make the place festive. For seemingly "fast food" it can take a while to eat there even if you are only having Gyros. I recommend the souvlaki and the Greek salad. They are the best anywhere!
A true Greek experience! Our guest's car had broke down and the chefs helped us push it into a parking space, indicating outstanding service. Would highly recommend to all Nebraskans/Iowegians as they have the most authentic gyros I've ever had the pleasure of tasting.
Well first of all we are from sioux falls and dont have a greek restaurant..we have been to chicago and there dolmades are like little skinny cigars. We had them there at greek island and thought they were the best ever, with the cream sauce on them yummm. We had a little of out favorites and was so in heaven, drove home and bragged to our husbands. we are greek and find a greek place every where we go, so we will be back.. you really should open a place in sioux falls. it would go over..
