We arrived at about 6:40 pm, were seated in the near empty restaurant just quite immediately. We were given menus and a server returned a short time later to bring us water and take an appetizer order. By 7:12 we hadn’t seen any sign of...our server again, the other server was busy with skip drivers and her few customers. Our water was long since drank, and we really didn’t have much hope in getting any food, so we elected to leave.More

We were there on a Monday in a long weekend. The server was very friendly. The place was very clean and the food was excellent. My spouse ordered the Kleftiko (roasted lamb) which was delicious with a lot of flavor, and it came with chicken...lemon rice soup with a lot of chicken. I ordered the beef Souvlaki, which is a lot of beef tenderloin... best beef Souvlaki I ever tasted. The Greek salad came with real Greek feta cheese. I love Greek food, but usually beef souvlaki is a poor cut that takes forever to chew. This was not the case at the Claypso. This was a lot of Tenderloin that melts. The best part (after the food) was the bill. Tenderloin and a significant piece of lamb with rice, starter size salad or soup, and a potato for less than $50. Oh, did i forget to thank our nice female server for being so friendly? It is worth mentioning that the menu on trip advisor is dated. use the websiteMore

Dropped in to give a new place a try. It is located in a strip mall and from the outside did not look like much. Inside is nicely decorated and super clean. Ordered a chicken dish. It was deliscious and the food portions more than...filled me up. I am 6'3" and 240 pounds and left satisfied. Server was super friendly and recommended items from the menu. If you have not gone I highly recommend you give it a try.More

This was our first time having Greek food other than Opa and it was really excellent! The calamari and the great dry ribs are especially good. The service was top notch. Highly recommended.

What a great find. Away from the downtown area is this little gem. Very friendly familie like service. No rush, very helpful. The food was authentic and thus very good. All of this at a nice price. Absolutely worth a visit.

Went here with my in-laws for a birthday dinner. It’s one of the better Greek restaurants I’ve been to. I got the baby back ribs and the rub/spices on it were yummy. The rest got the souvlaki and they said it was quite good. The...prices are reasonable and the staff super friendly and attentive. I’d definitely go again.More
