Foursquare Tips

  • Greek Island is the staple of Greek Town, importing wines, olives oil, oregano, honey and olives straight from Greece. Try their distinctive lima beans and Colorado lamb.
  • The whole staff is great. Tons of great options. Some favorites: saganaki, Athenian salad, broiled salmon, Lake Superior white fish tail, gyros (extra tzatziki). Hot Lima beans may be the star.
  • Taramasalata! Opa!
  • Wonderful service and amazing food! I've never had lamb before and it was a great first impression. 5 stars!
  • Get the saganaki cheese!
  • Agree with everyone else on the flaming saganaki. I ate an ungodly amount of food for a reasonable price
  • The family platter is insane!! A must! Service is great.
  • Omfg amazing, the food, the service, the venue, the staff, this is one of the best resturants I've ever been to period!
  • Seemed like the mixed drinks were watered down.
  • Tourists and locals alike pack the house every night to try everything from fried zucchini with skordalia (garlic-potato dip) and dolmades (stuffed grape leaves) to roast lamb and fresh red snapper.
  • You must try the Kolokithakia, it's incredible!
  • It's almost like if you were in Greece. Try to taste everything you can. Authentic.
  • Seafood especially grilled octopus and appetizers
  • Jimmy Bannos Sr., chef of Heaven on Seven, eats here on his nights off. He loves the Whole roasted fish.
  • Try the family meal for two!!! Omg! So much food, and it is delicious. This is the best Greek Restaurant ever!!!!
  • Very attentive service. Great and plentiful food that's worth the not-expensive prices. Lots of seating. And you will almost never have less than half a glass at a given moment.
  • Fantastic Saganaki and two course pairings. Opa!
  • Portions are gigantic, so the last time I was there I just ordered a plate of squid for starters and it was a full meal.
  • Skip the table and eat at the bar.
  • Excellent service, valet. Delectable salmon.
