At first glance it seems strange a diner would be a place for an evening drink, but this was the exception. The evening menu consisted of fine Greek dishes at surprisingly low prices. I had the leg of lamb and was genuinely surprised at the...More

The lamb burger was ok but the fish and chips was over cooked. The salads were fair as well. Restaurant is on a busy street with lots to check out nearby but parking was tricky.

We sat outside and had a pleasant dinner. The service was prompt and the waiter very friendly. The only reason I am not giving a 5 is the diner was out of beer on tap as their delivery had not arrived. The fish had a...More
