We visit Dunkirk every summer for a family reunion and have to eat fish fry at Demetris restaurant. The service is good and the food portions for the fish fry are large. We always enjoy the rice pudding for dessert.

We really enjoy good Greek food. What we were served was below average. The gyro meat had little resemblance to true Greek. Perhaps it will pass in Dunkirk, however, not outside the city limits. Order a hamburger, you'll be happier.

Loved their Greek food. Nice location by the water and friendly service. If you want to try Greek food, this is a good place to go. Chicken, flat bread, salads are excellent. Sauces and dressing are fresh and good.
