Since I moved from Milwaukee I don't get here as often, but stopped here for lunch. It still serves the best lentil soup ever. Great gyros also. Friendly staff, great prices, and fabulous food.

Excellent family owned restaurant. Delicious homemade authentic Greek cuisine. Owners and staff are very welcoming and provide outstanding quality with a wide variety of menu offerings. We are frequent diners at Apollo and always enjoy a wonderful experience. This is our favorite neighborhood restaurant. Highly recommend!

The only down side to this place is that I live to close and go here to often. The family that runs this restaurant are Greek and the person it is named after was born in Grace so this is authentic Greek food. I have had almost everything on the menu and I haven't had a bad meal yet. The... More

Definitely one of my favorites in Milwaukee. Great Greek food for a very reasonable price, as it should always be!

I loved this place. I was taken back by ordering at the counter, but the service was great and once we were seated the owner came over to chat with us. The service was fast, food was great and the price was right. Why would anyone go to McDonald's?

I routinely visit as well as bring visitors to Milwaukee. The food is excellent and has never failed. Reminiscent of the Billy Goat Bar in Chicago. No table service, but not a problem. Small patio outside as well. Will usually always leave with a doggie bag!!

A casual, walk-up-order-and-pay-at-the-counter-type place. You carry your tray of food over to your table. I stop in here for lunch when I'm in Milwaukee & have time - and I always get the gyro plate with gyro & greek salad. Delicious, and generous portions (I usually have to take part of it home to enjoy the next day.) I've never... More
