Our waitress Ashley was top notch and provided us excellent service! Food was hot and tasty, warm puffed pita bread too yummy to resist. Our experience at Greek Island was the perfect end to our long road-trip day.

Stopped here with a family of four. Everybody raved about their food. Each dish was delicious and very plentiful! The flavours were outstanding and we were delighted to find that we could buy a bottle of Greek salad dressing to take home with us. Ashley...was our server and she was so great! She really helped make our evening very special with her sparkling personality and friendly nature. we will definitely be back.More

We spent a delightful time savoring a most delicious Greek Platter for Two on the patio. It was our first visit and we received excellent service as well as a lovely welcome from the owners. Everything cooked to perfection. The inside of the restaurant is...beautifully decorated and a welcoming atmosphere. Definitely will be returning.More

Hadn't been here in a few years, not sure what has changed but was underwhelmed by the food, I didn't find there was any flavor in the food and more that they just dumped olive oil over everything to make it taste good. Spices are...such a big importance in Greek cooking yet i feel they hijacked the dishes with oil. It's too bad cause they go out of there way to make you feel welcomed as a guest and do great a job, unfortunately wouldn't recommendMore

Greek is one of my favourite cuisines, And The Islands never dissapoints. The Lamb was perfection, the potatoes and rice amazing. The waiter was great recommended a nice wine and it was on point. Now the down side the greek salad was less than I...expected from a restaurant of this caliber. Although the dressing was very good I was dissapointed that they did not use ripe grape tomato which is easily available instead of the unripe grocery store variety, it was actually crunchy. Also one olive c'mon I can understand keeping prices down in this current economy but one olive gimme a break. and not even pitted at that. oh well over all a great experience but the salad needs work.

It was our 50th Wedding Anniversary and we had a party of 14. We arrived by Limo and were met by the owner who greeted our party and sat the group in a wonderful location in the restaurant. The personal service given to us by...the owner as well as the staff went beyond any ever received from a restaurant. The food was loved by all and served all at the same time and piping hot. I would highly recommend this wonderful restaurant for a small romantic dinner to a gathering of friends and loved ones for any special event. Thanks to Owner and Staff they made our 50th anniversary very memorable and special. Thank youMore

For birthdays, if 4 or more people have dinner (evening meal only) and spend $20 each (I believe), the birthday customer gets their meal free. But we've discovered you have to ASK for it.
