The Greek is one of my favorite places to eat in State College. I wish the menu wasn't so limited. Need more main course items.

My gyro was burnt and cut into little pieces . It was very dry. All of the other food was good. The service was excellent.

Very disappointing though a gyro right?

We had a wonderful dinner at The Greek. Our waiter Manny was such a polite, engaging young man. The food was wonderful - best calamari I have had in a long time! We brought our own wine, there was no corking fee which was a bonus. The atmosphere was energetic since it was a Friday night and a home football weekend (Michigan). I'm definitely making another reservation to dine there again next time I am in State College.

The food was excellent, the staff really worked hard. One note, don't recommend the wine they sell, not very good. We didn't finish the glass we got. The quality was just not good. Go for the food!

It was a crowded football weekend, but we had made reservations way in advance. We had to wait a bit (10-15 minutes) past our reservation time, but no biggie. Very nice staff. Service was not speedy, but was understandable due to crowd. Very big, airy space both upstairs and downstairs. Food was excellent. Our server was delightful. They do not have a liquor license, but local (PA) wine is available by the bottle. It is inexpensive -- and VERY sweet (literally, not figuratively) so if you like sweet wines, you are good to go. Lamb chops were delicious. Salads were super fresh and flavorful. Greek pasta was fab-oo! Loved the red pepper/feta spread!

Very fresh, well-prepared, authentic Greek food. The gigante beans in tomato sauce were delicious, as well as the grilled kalamari. Delicious apps. Ordered the filet mignon kebabs, which were absolutely tender, wonderfully seasoned, cooked to perfection. Wait staff was super friendly and attentive. Highly recommended.
