While visiting Quinnipiac to play in the alumni hockey game, we had breakfast at the Acrop. It was delicious as usual. My kids loved the bacon and it brought back great memories for my wife and i as we had eaten here many times during our time at Quinnipiac.

Love this homey place. Food is good and the staff is friendly. Always consistently worth the visit. Service is quick and with a smile. Portions are more than adequate.

We had one of the worst meals ever here! Ordered hot open turkey sandwich, not expecting the world but was expecting to be able to eat it. It was beyond disgusting... Never again!

Four of us when here for coffee and deserts. They were very good and our server Virginia was excellent in every way. When we first arrived we told her that we wanted to look over the deserts and she showed all of them and explained what each was. Although we only had desert the dinner menu looked very good an...

Stopped here for breakfast during parents weekend at my daughters college. We were seated our order taken promptly. Food was brought to the table pretty quickly. I'm not a foodie but I was disappointed in the bland taste and presentation of the food. I'm not sure if it was the ingredients, the preparation, or both but my breakfast seemed very... More

Had a gyro/ souvlaki wrap - was outstanding. Wife had a chicken florentine wrap which was also really good. Very friendly service - not from the area but when back here will eat here for sure.

Standard dinner fare. Service okay. Food good. Prices ok. I had cup of Manhattan clam chowder (very tasty) and a Greek salad (the small is plenty for lunch but don't expect stuffed grape leaves). My husband got the chicken Florentine wrap (a special of the day). He asked for it without feta but it came with it anyway. Oh well.... More

Not sure why all the poor reviews for this diner. While passing through the area, was going to get off the Merritt and grab fast food. Instead found this place right off the exit and decided to give it a try. Typical Greek diner, loaded down menu with 24 hour breakfast and tons of selections for lunch and dinner. Decided... More
