Big Tommy's Parthenon in Novi, Michigan offers great Greek food served a number of different ways in a fun, casual setting. Appetizers at Big Tommy's Parthenon include the Greek sausage, grilled octopus, two different types of calamari and a gyro with sliced lamb platter. At dinner, give some thought to the Big Tommy's Parthenon burger, which is made with a half-pound of beef. The Greek burger is also very popular and comes with a half-pound of gyro meat topped with feta cheese and grilled red onions. This restaurant also has a comedy club attached to it making for some great after-dinner entertainment.

    Not the best Greek restaurant I’ve been to and not the worst. Appetizers are the best part. Entree sizes are generous. Flavors slightly above average. Lots of flaming saganaki. Wait staff was pleasant, prices reasonable.

    My friend and I went here for the first time. It was Saturday evening. We had reservations and were seated right away. While we were there the dining room got even busier. Our food was wonderful. My friend ordered the ribs and I got the lamb dinner. It was the best lamb I have ever had. Generous portions, I took enough home to have another meal. Our server was attentive, unfortunately I didn't hear his name. We will need to plan another trip!

    Quality of food not there. Ordered lamb shank, wet dinner. Green beans soggy and gross. Everything covered in a red watery sauce. Felt like it was just slop. Was embarrassed that I took folks there for a business dinner. Saganaki came out in a dirty dish. Appreciate it gets set on fire, but plate wasn’t clean so bits of old burnt cheese still on it.

    The food and service here are excellent. I recommend all the Greek food. I loved the lamb friccasse in creamy lemon cream sauce. The small Greek salad is enough for two. Freshly baked real Greek bread too.

    After I made a reservation for outdoor dining, I called to be sure that it was actually available. I was told it was first come, first serve -- even with a reservation. No problem. We were lunching early to avoid the crowd. When we arrived, the hostess wanted to seat us inside because it was cold outside. It was a sunny May morning and we had our coats, just in case it got cold. And, of course, they have heaters on the patio -- right? Yes, they do -- but we were told they weren't filled with propane -- because it was cold out. Isn't that why you have heaters -- for when it gets cold out? I'm sure this restaurant is very good -- but we were surprised they weren't prepared for outdoor seating, when they actually ask if you'd prefer an outdoor table on their reservation page.
