Tucked away off Arsenal Street in a strip mall is this little gem. Warm & inviting decor. Wonderful service. Now the food: could not have been better, fantastic selection, substantial portions & prepared perfectly. Wings with feta sauce was heavenly, as were 3 different gyros we tried. Not at all over priced. Will definitely be back!

Ordered a big meal for the family, they forgot a gyro, portions were very small, including a picture of the "greek nachos". The $14.00 fishermans platter i ordered was very soggy and had more potatoe logs than fish...very disappointed, never ordering there again, would not recommend.

Another hidden Watertown gem... noted right across the plaza from Applebee's (if you can't tell, I really dislike chains)... It's good greek food that nobody know's about. Good gyros, although their menu is much more extensive... good rice pudding, and good prices. My kind of place!

Never disappointed. Always fast, friendly and helpful service. Food is consistently delicious and the portions are definitely are old country Greek sized! My favorite is the Apollo Salad but have tried many of the other dishes and they are all fantastic. You feel at home and welcomed every visit and never leave hungry!

We both had gyro. I had lamb, partner had the original. The original was better than the lamb. The lamb was old and dry. Both came with homemade chips - these were nice. Place seems popular with the locals. Service was A+.

Me and my husband were excited we love greet food and the young girl their was less than please to wait on us, she was not nice and after I told the young server the problem she got upset... She almost ruined date night but she isn't worth it. Food was ok good but service is VERY IMPORTANT TO ME!

Michelle T, Owner at The Apollo Restaurant, responded to this review

I am very sorry to hear about your experience and would like to address it with the server. Would be able to tell me the day and approximate time you had dinner? If you happen to remember her name, that would be very helpful! I am glad you enjoyed the food but am upset that you had a bad experience... More

This was an unexpected pleasure. So much wonderful food to decide on and we went with Greek and not disappointed. Try the dry white Greek wine. It goes so well with this food. Friendly people, greet service. I will be back.

Came here from the recommendation from our hotel clerk. Older style booths that could use a little updating but that didn't take away from the quality of the meal. Friendly service was quick and checked on us often. She provided the check AFTER our meal was over ... which is always appreciated as we then don't feel rushed. Food was... More

Great service - good traditional Greek food, would highly recommend . I had Greek salad with home made dressing and lemon chicken soup- delicious. My husband had souvlaki- it was also delish- there was so much he couldn't eat it all.

Thank Mary C
