It's been a long time since we've been to the Acropolis, but it made the perfect meeting spot for family members coming from different parts of the city. For elderly parents, it was ideal:
Easy parking, one step up into the restaurant, a welcoming hostess--the owner herself, and best of all: it is quiet. What restaurant doesn't boast a "lively" and noisy ambiance these days? For that alone, Acropolis is a gem, so relaxing and comfortable. And I haven't even started to talk about the food! From the specials to the expansive menu, everything was fresh and delicious from crab soup which my father (very hard to please) declared wonderful, to the whole fish, ample sides of choice, and traditional Greek desserts. We all loved it!

The best Greek restaurant in Baltimore hands-down! I have been a patron for 40 years because the food is consistently great and authentic. Grilled whole fish, kabobs, shrimp giovetsi, lamb chops, orzo dishes and more are delicious and large! Family run and it feels good to be there!

Everyone was very happy with their meal. A carafe of delicious Cabernet was only 21 dollars. The waitress was knowledgable and efficient. Cheaper than the other nearby Greek restaurants. Will be back.

Last minute decision to eat out. Wanted authentic Greek so gave Acropolis a try. Our party of six ordered spanakopita, dolmathes and tzatziki as appetizers and all were delicious, going up in smoke along with the bread and olive oil. For the main dishes, orders were placed for moussaka, pastitsio, gyro, crab cakes with egg-lemon soup (agvolemono) and Greek Salads. Compliments were flowing about each dish as plates were being cleaned. I had the pastitsio and it was light and flavorful. We ate so much, we had no room for dessert. The menu was filled with mouth-watering options and if I come back to Baltimore (was visiting for the weekend), there are many I would like to try. Prices were incredibly reasonable. The bill for our party of six -- which included a carafe of Greek wine and two Greek beers -- was less than I have paid for two people at some restaurants. Service was very good, though the waitress seemed new and had to check in response to some of our questions. Definitely recommend, though, if driving, parking can be tricky as there is no dedicated parking lot. Decor is very Greek and a video screen plays a lot of scenes from Greece.

We've been trying out the numerous Greek restaurants in Baltimore, and this time it was Acropolis's turn. It's a classic old Greektown restaurant, and it was very quiet when we visited - which happened to be the Greek Good Friday, so that may explain it. Overall we were very happy with our food - we had stuffed grape leaves and grilled octopus as starters, and we both had lamb dishes, and it was all delicious. We also had a bottle of Greek red wine (from Crete) that was a good match for the food and very reasonably priced. I don't remember the name of the dessert, but it was like baklava in a different form - too sweet for me and dominated by honey. I think that dessert is not the strong suit of Greek cuisine.

Our server was enthusiastic and friendly, if not exactly polished - in keeping with the "neighborhood restaurant" theme. Service was fast but not rushed. The decor is showing its age, but it appeared to be clean - and again, this is a neighborhood place, not a glitzy downtown restaurant like Ouzo Bay (which will probably cost you 2x the price of your tab at Acropolis.

We will definitely give Acropolis another shot.

Very quiet for a saturday nite. The waiter was helpful and attentive - knew products well. Got the lamb dish (served in a bowl) - that was one of the specialties of the house and allegedly a Baltimore's Best - It deserved the accolade. The kabob was not as enthusiastically received.
Dinner was very good and resonably priced.

Greek food is one of my fav. not disappointing, not over excited to go back, but might give them another chance if in the neighborhood. It was an enjoyable dinner, so if you haven't been there.. check it out. Different palates have different opinions.. LOL

The waiter gave us wonderful suggestions, walking us through the menu based on our preferences. Food was delicious, however the portion size was a bit much. Two people could split one appetizer and one entree and be perfectly filled so maybe reduce the portion sizes a tad.

It was a rainy night, and we were the only, yes only, customers. Not surprisingly, it was quiet, and the service was excellent.
More importantly, the food was good too. We started with Saganaki (flaming cheese) and then braised lamb, cooked as a casserole and served with orzo (not ouzo, but a rice-shaped pasta). We are partial to lamb and found it excellent. The portion was huge and so we shared it. The baklava was good (I took one home with me too) but I would prefer to have it made with the honey inside rather than poured over it. Above all, the price was reasonable.

We are always welcomed so warmly into this Greektown restaurant by the owner. All the servers are professional with a real knowledge of the menu, and aren't hesitant to give recommendations. None of this "everything's good". Beth is especially helpful and sweet.

The seafood pasta is excellent, with a large portion of calamari, shrimp and crabmeat. The chicken parm is also very tasty. We really like coming here.

Though the food was very good. The waitress steered us away from sharing the sampler with three people saying it would not sufficiently feed that many. However, when we received it, we wholeheartedly disagreed. There was ample food for three. Also, when it came time to receive our bill (we had 18 people with us) it took the waiter about 25 minutes to calculate everyone's bill. We even grouped our party to 3-4 people on a bill. It was ridiculious having to wait that long to receive our final bill.

This is our favorite Greek restaurant in the Baltimore/DC area. The food is excellent and tastes homemade; portions are generous, and prices are very reasonable. I highly recommend the Lamb Giovetsi, grilled octopus, and stuffed grape leaves. We are serious "foodies" and consider this as one of our top10 favorite restaurants. We drive 50 minutes (one way) and it is worth every minute of it!

It had been years since I dined in any of Baltimore's fine Greek establishments and Acropolis did not let me down! Living in the city you're filled with choices of every ethnicity.
The decor could use some updating but it still holds with the old-style Greek restaurants that I know and love around Baltimore. It's not trying to be something it isn't...it's a place to enjoy good food, friendly service and leave with a fully stomach. All of which we did.
Our food was fast...the dolmathes almost too fast as they arrived before our drink order did! But everything was hot and fresh, including the bread. Baklava is not to be missed if you've got a sweet tooth.
