A family favorite... I dine here probably once month, whenever I can get into town... My family been coming here regularly for thirty years. This is a real family restaurant, with a real chef who cooks real food. Never had a bad meal here, and we always enjoy the service. Places like this are a national treasure and sadly also getting to be an endangered species of sorts, as more and more restaurants become specialists at delivering to your plate the very same factory-produced mass-market meals you can get in your local supermarket freezer isle. Come here and get a real meal instead!

A simple, old-fashioned place with just good food. A Greek touch to most of the offerings (since it's a Greek owner I guess that makes sense). Quality is excellent and quantity/speed nice. We sat outside and enjoyed it.

Ordered a Greek salad and it was huge, fresh and tasty. Asked if the turkey was real and waiter said yes. Ordered the seniors portion and the wait was worth it. Fresh and it was tasty, gravy was great too. Potatoes nice and warm and carrots cooked just right. For dessert if you are a rice pudding fan, this is the best rice pudding in all of pentiction.

Overall service was great and the best food around home cooked. Well worth the time to go and have a nice dinner.

Had a delicious hot turkey sandwich from their traditional Canadian cafe fare. No hipster diner irony or nostalgia, the real deal. The turkey is obviously cooked whole by them. And lovely people who have owned the restaurant for decades make you feel very welcome and glad you came.

I often come here and have the legendary "Capitol Burger" (or the veal cutlets!), but now and then I get in a classical Hellenic mood, and go for one of the Souvlaki platters. Can't go wrong with this choice: perfect EVERYTHING in this dish! Just bring your appetite, as it's a sizable portion,and you will want to have room for the included dessert...
