If you love Greek food then try Taverna Yamas. The Baklava was really great and very fresh. The calamari appetizer was good and have a good portion. Come try out this restaurant which is off the beaten path.

I really wanted to like this restaurant but there were some issues with the cleanliness of the restaurant. We arrived around 12:30 pm and we were the only ones in the restaurant. That should have been the first warning sign. When we were seated I...More

This place is right next to the tinseltown in town center. The food is good and they also have hookah. Service is usually good and they are open late on weekends.

We like this venue for the ambience, the caring staff and the food. The al fresco dining is enjoyable. The only negative was that the Octopuss dish was very scant and skimpy proportions and was about $12.00 and was a definite rip-off- The weekend evenings...More
