Greektown only has a few restaurants and no shops or other related stores or cultural activities. We were expecting a cultural mecca and were disappointed. It just seemed like this part of ethnic Chicago is diminishing.

Great spot for everything Greek, with free valet for most Greek restaurants in the area and every spot I've been to the food is amazing, but that area has a very hot real estate market going on and I see a lot of places selling out, so get down there quickly

There are numerous Greek restaurants within a few blocks. Also we have enjoyed visiting the museum that deals with the experience the Greeks had coming to America. Also there are some Greek souvenir shop.

The food is authentic, the choices plentiful, and one of a group of well enjoyed Greek restaurants. If you have the chance, be... More

We went to Greektown for the festival. Great band, great food and wonderful people. Although the Greeks have mostly moved out of Greektown the restaurants are wonderful and the nightlife fun and exciting. We didn't have a chancer to visit the museum, but it was highly recommended.

Every time I come back to Greektown it gets better and better. Cleaner, safer and more modern restaurant and retail stores are opened here. The only thing that goes the other direction is parking. It is harder to find free parking on the street and parking garages are getting more expensive.
