Got into town late and stopped in for dinner as it was right next to the Hampton where I was staying. The service was wonderful for the whole visit. I had a cup of Tomato soup which was very good and a Cobb Salad which was also excellent. I will definitely be back the next time I come to town!

This is simple and good Greek/American food. Went because if was convenient - 3 min walk - and regretted that we had not been there the previous evening. Ate well and at a good price. Service and food as good as any - don't be decieved that it looks rather rough and ready. It's not!

1) The food made my wife sick shortly after the meal. 2) Ordered sirloins, and got them only 40 mins later, even then there were only 2-3 more people in the restaurant, so the kitchen wasn't busy. 3) My sirloin came with cheese and mushrooms, even though I asked without it. They didn't want to make a new one, but... More

Dear Slavik N, I want to apologize for your unpleasant visit to my restaurant. I cannot explain about your wife's illness as we do everything to order using fresh ingredients. I will follow up on not wanting to remake as our policy is to please our customer. We obviously did not do this on your visit. Again I apologize for... More

Food was ok. Portions are a bit small for the price, so you can't share. I had the spanakopita which was wonderful and homemade, the side of fruit was fresh, but Melon and pineapple cut very thin...wish there was more. Two of us are vegetarian so were glad to have at least 2 choices. My teen daughter had a roasted... More

Really the only thing that ruined my experience was the table next to me. They were a couple of locals that couldn't stop complaining about everything. The poor staff was very nice and took a lot of abuse. Food was everything I needed it to be.

Thoroughly enjoyed a crab cake sandwich with greens and a giant pickle slice. No wait right at noon on a Wednesday. Definitely on my list for a lunch visit on my next visit to the Lenox are.

We walked into Electra's Cafe at around 10:30 on a Saturday morning. We were behind another couple. We watched as the couple in front of us were told by a waitress to find their own seat (there were no clean tables). They waited a few minutes and then sat down at a small table that appeared to had been just... More

After reading all of the glowing reviews we stopped by and this place should not be in the top ten.... Server was clueless.. Food took a while and was of average quality... No atmosphere at all...
