I happened to see an ad for The Greek while waiting in the line at the Original Waffle Shop and made it a point to go try the restaurant for dinner. Took my family of 6 to dinner and they easily accommodated us and we had a great time. The service was fast and friendly, and I found the food... More

This review chiefly concerns a fourth or fifth meal at the restaurant, our most recent visit. At the Clinton Street level the building looks like a handsome, symmetrical home, but note that the entrance and plentiful parking are down behind, not at the “front door.” You walk into a welcoming two-story lobby, since the upstairs seating is built around only...

My brother & I stopped here before a concert. We were able order & get our food quickly. The staff was friendly & checked on us often. The decor was nice & it seemed very clean. We got the Greek meatball appetizer which was very flavorful. We both decided on the beef-lamb gyro. The meat was sliced perfectly so it... More

The food was very good. We ordered the 3 dips appetizer which came with plenty of pita bread. I got the Moussaka and my husband ordered the chicken gyro. They were both very good, however, I agree with previous reviews that there were too many french fries and they could be replaced with vegetables. That said, my side salad was... More

The lamb gyro is my favorite food in this place! I also love the Baklava, that is delicious! I cannot go there and don't it both!

The hostess at the Waffle Shop asked me, if I liked cheesecake and baklava. She recommended that I try the Greek. She told me they had baklava cheesecake. So, I tried it was great and the restaurant itself was nicely decorated. I will be back again for dinner as well. The cheesecake was awesome.

After visiting The Greek for the first time in a while, I was somewhat disappointed in some menu changes that must have taken place recently. First, a Greek restaurant with no lamb? That was the best part! I always used to get lamb on the Santorini salad, which was delicious. Now lamb options are gone. Second, I noticed that the... More

We've been going to The Greek for about 3 years. Always delicious, good sized portions, hot food, and great prices. A shocking find here in State College where almost every restaurant we've tried in this town for the past 5 years we consider well below average. That standard is based on living and eating in the NY tri-state area for... More

Disappointed with the new menu, probably won't come back. For some reason the dishes keep shrinking over time. They went from having huge salads full of the good stuff (cheese, olives, ...), to a tiny salad that seems to have those goods skimped. Same seems to hold true for the gyros (shrinkage). I also really enjoyed the lamb, which was... More

We were so excited to find a Greek place in State College, but unfortunately our expectations fell short. I ordered the spanikopita, village salad, and veggie gyro, and they were all "eh". He got the lamb & beef gyro and wasn't impressed. The place is decorated nicely, but it's missing that Greek warmth. It feels more like a Greek deli... More
