Stopped by for dinner while driving through Harrisburg. Had gyros, souvlaki and Greek fries. Everything was tasty and well prepared. Service was excellent. There is a small army of attendants ready to refill drinks, take plates,etc. Got delicious deserts to go.

Enjoyed the calamari and lemon soup. Also really enjoyed talking to the high school students who serve food and clean tables. They are smart and friendly.

This is my second try here. There is nothing special about this place, from having to order at the counter when you walk in, to the décor, the food, the service. The only thing Greek/ Mediterranean about it are the words on the menu. I have eaten at least 10 different Mediterranean restaurants, and this one is the worst of... More

This place is always very busy, but they are extremely efficient and very friendly. Parking can be tricky so be prepared to walk a block or two on typically busy nights.

Description
We are open Tuesday-Saturday serving lunch and dinner. We are closed the following national and Orthodox Christian holidays: New Years Day-January 7 Orthodox Christmas Day-Orthodox Christian Holy Week (varies in early Spring)-July 4-1st Week of August-Week of western Christmas. Please check our Facebook page and or our website for updates.


We are a BYOB fast/casual restaurant with an emphasis on freshly prepared to order Greek food. You'll order at a point of sale (POS) and from there make your way to a table indoors/outdoors (depending on season). Staff will then take care of anything else you may need at the table including serving your meals.

During peak hours you'll be seated by one of our staff. From there you will be served your meals at the table by one of our staff, they'll refill your drinks accordingly, provide you with your wine glasses and/or frosted beer mugs. There are no fees for bringing your own wine or beer to drink. You may order additional items from any one of our staff working the floor or you are welcome to return to the POS at your leisure to order anything else you would like. Your visit can be as "formal" or "informal" as you would like it to be.
