We met family for a dinner on a Friday evening. Our server, Lauren, was attentive and welcoming, and the food was excellent. We plan to return the next visit to State College.

I’ve been going to The Greek since it opened and got take out during the pandemic. The food is always good, the service is always good and it’s one of my favorite restaurants in State College.

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.

We’ve been enjoying their dependable Greek food for years. During the pandemic, we got in the habit of ordering from them once a week. After we got our vaccinations, this was the first restaurant we ate in — since June 2020. Hooray!

This restaurant waaaay exceeded expectations! We love Greek restaurants and this is by far our new favorite! We tried traditional favorite (dips, salads, soup) which were executed and plated nicely as well as a perfectly grilled squid dish. The staff were wonderful. We are not from PA so the way they handled BYOB was new for us - they do offer it on premises through a 3rd party. Nothing fancy but rounded out our meal perfectly.

This was a great experience, and I can't wait to go back and try some more entrees! The vegetarian platter feels more like an appetizer than a meal (a large amount of dipping sauces with less substantial food to dip) but it was very good and I would get it again, just as an appetizer next time. Great experience overall, and wonderful service. I especially enjoyed the melitzanosalata personally.

Our first time here and we'll definitely be back! The lamb kabobs were fantastic!! We also enjoyed the grape leaves, calamari, and a traditional gyro. Super tasty and everything freshly made in house. Will visit again on our next PSU trip!
