I love greek food and was really looking forward to the friendly hospitality that I almost always encounter at greek restaurants. Not at Greek Islands.... There is always a lineup here and this Sunday night was no exception. Once seated - in a busy corridor leading to the kitchen, we were greeted with an unsmiling and surly waitress. There was...

Last visit was my third to this restaurant, and as usual, was not very impressed with either food or service. We ordered a salad and a couple of beers ad two orders of lamb ribs. Salad was ok, nothing to write home about, but the ribs were a perfect disaster. Under cooked or overcooked, but none the way we ordered,... More

I have dined at this restaurant six times and all at the request of my friends. Out of six visits, two experiences were excellent, two mediocre, and two were just plain bad. As this restaurant does not except reservations, diners should be prepared to wait in line to get a table for anywhere between 30 minutes and one hour. Based... More

We've been going to Greek Islands for years. It NEVER DISAPPOINTS. Chris and the rest of the people treat you like your family. The food is the best Greek you will find outside of Greece. Everyone loves the Lamb Chops, Chicken Breasts and Shrimp Dinners. They have a Grilled Veal Chop that is as good as any of the most... More

Village (Horyatiki) Salad is always fresh and crisp. .the Mousaka with it's bechamel sauce is some of the best we've ever had. Chicken kabob and Filet kabob were fresh, tender and perfectly seasoned and grilled. Tzatziki sauce... More

This is one of our favorite places to dine. The service and food is always consistent. There is plenty of seating, however expect a wait. If you'd rather not wait, go in the afternoon or do take out.

Everything and anything is just great, except the prices are kind of in the high range!!!😟🍻 The food is delicious, anything from the menu it's just super. The service is excellent . Tarpon springs restaurants are full zero comparing with this little place.

I have been coming here for years. The food quality is always excellent. I am from Chicago and we have many wonderful Greek restaurants. Butt sadly this one is the best. The food is always cooked perfectly. Expect to wait in a line as they don't take reservations. But the line moves very quickly. And it is worth the wait.... More
