    With Greektown so close to my apartment, it is difficult not to always consider eating here at any time during the day...

  • AtlantaDomer reviewWe visited this place while on vacation in Chicago. It was awful. The atmosphere was noisy and chaotic, the service was frantic, and they were out of everything we tried to order. What we did end up with was generally poorly prepared and, other than the stuffed tomato, flavorless. And no selection of Greek beers.

  • specker reviewThis is a real greek place, not a trendy tourist trap. Know your food and speak greek if you can, otherwise expect a fly in your soup!! Great food and plenty of it! Also do NOT say opa.

  • bigtbq reviewAuthentic food in classic Greek setting. I've been eating here for over 25 years. Its one of the first places I visit when I return to Chicago. Great lamb and sides, country Greek salad, and bread. So many greeat dishes to choose from. Our daughter make this her favorite Chicago restraunt, too!

  • RevHarryPants reviewThere are few places that can match the overall dining experience offered by the chefs and waiters of Greek Islands. The food, service, and ambiance are extraordinary! This is a perfect place to celebrate a special event or to simply enjoy a fabulous meal.

  • J JEverything

    55555 by J J


  • William Q.Disappointed! The "special men" I was presented had just two of seven plates available. I went there about 8:30 pm so it wasn't like they were closing. Not recommended! 👎

    33333 by William Q.

    55555 by Louis Klieger


  • Fernando CovasLast time I came the fish was way overcooked and most dishes were generally just not as good as usual- I hope the quality isn't going down!

    22222 by Fernando Covas

    55555 by Jen


  • Angelica AYou must try the Kolokithakia, it's incredible!

    55555 by Angelica A


  • DaawniiFlaming cheese for both entertaining and appetizing!

    55555 by Daawnii


  • Joshua HaftelRather ho-hum greek fare. Flaming saganaki is always great, and the lamb was cooked perfectly. Just nothing spectacular. At least it's quite large and can accommodate many, our wait wasn't too bad.

    55555 by Joshua Haftel


  • James Lee S.Everything.

    55555 by James Lee S.


  • Gen RamirezExcelente sabor, los gyros recomendables.

    55555 by Gen Ramirez

    33333 by Roshan Deric

    55555 by Jeff Ryan


  • ben m.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.

    55555 by ben m.


  • Rachel S.a-maz-ing! Vegetarian moussaka.

    55555 by Rachel S.


  • Van PIt's almost like if you were in Greece. Try to taste everything you can. Authentic.

    55555 by Van P


  • Fernando CovasOne of the best for fresh, healthy, and simply prepared seafood. Whole grilled fish is the way to go, as is the octopus. Don't overlook their veggies: try the horta (braised greens), okra, and beets.

    55555 by Fernando Covas


  • Brittany NicoleCan't go wrong with this place. Lamb ribs are among the honorable mentions

    55555 by Brittany Nicole
