  • "We were immediately greeted by the staff like old friends! Big Papa was lifting a baby into the air and Mama Fofo was greeting guests at another table. Wine samples were brought to us and the belly dancer began to entertain the diners. It was like walking into the living room of a large Greek family. The food was FANTASTIC!! The flavors were INCREDIBLE!! Words simply cannot do the food justice. We drove to the restaurant in terrible weather. The 45 minute trek took us just over two hours - and it was SO worth it! The restaurant is definitely a "hole in the wall" gem and a new favorite!!"

  • "Greek Islands has great prices & great food. The portions are generous and tasty. The place is small so there is not a lot of private space. The owner was present, but maybe a little too present and distracting."

  • "From start to finish, this family-operated restaurant was great. Both my friend and I ordered the AROUND THE ISLANDS, a tasty combination of Moussaka, Pasticchio, Gyros and pita bread. It was a great way to sample the menu. The portions were ample, and we both took food home with us. The kitschy decor and friendly service made the meal even better. It felt like we were guests in a home, rather than a restaurant. Oh, don't forget to try the flaming Saganaki. Opa!"

  • "Dinner was good. It's hard to find restaurants that don't sell Italian, American, steak, which makes the restaurant stand out. During dinner a belly dancer made her way past the tables, which I personally found loud and obtrusive."

  • "We are always satisfied with our dining experience after leaving Greek Islands. The food is great, the atmosphere is fun and the service is usually really good. I have never ordered anything I have been disappointed with. I'd definitely recommend it!"

  • "Love this place. Great food and family owned. The atmosphere is fine but it can get loud when the belly dancer performs. It's all in good fun."
    Dined on 12/13/2013
  • "Fun atmosphere, great food, friendly staff. While we were there, one of the staff grabbed the keys from patrons, moved their car & talked the officer out of giving them a $300 parking ticket (they were next to the hydrant). We've been more than once, but this was the first time we'd seen the belly dancer. She was wonderful, graceful, and not intrusive to people who weren't interested in her entertainment. I'd definitely recommend this place."

  • "This was our second time at Greek Islands, with our team being in the B1G Championship game. We were not disappointed.we had an excellent Sagnaki, great entrees, and a very good rice pudding for dessert. Unfortunately, they were out of Gelato-Bourakis, a fantastic dessert. The prices are very inexpensive, providing a good value for a nice portion. The Greek islands is a small place, holding about 70 patrons. This gives it a very intimate feel. Since they are about 4 blocks from Lucas Oil Stadium, people are dressed pretty casually. There is a nice sportsmanship between groups of diners from opposing teams. I highly recommend The Greek Islands."

  • "Great food and excellent service The Florinis, roasted red peppers stuffed with feta are one of my favorite appetizers anywhere in town. Always good to talk with George. The belly dancer was beautiful."
    Dined on 11/30/2013
  • "Great food! I can't complain one bit about the food. The service was hit and miss but overall not bad. I didn't care for the half naked dancing lady in the restaurant. I felt as if it was inappropriate with the childern in the restaurants as well as people tucking dollars into the dancers waistband."
    Dined on 11/30/2013
  • "The service was great, the food was abundant and tasty. We started off with Saganaki (flaming cheese) it was very good. Then the Greek salad with excellent dressing that was surely homemade. Our entrees were very well presented and prepared. We had more than enough food for the price. I would recommend to anyone who enjoys Greek food."
