Wanted a simple meal after flight from Europe. We had soup and moussaka, the lentil soup was good, the lasagne very dull having been cooked some time earlier and warmed up. It was more like a shepherds pie than lasagne. Some of the other dishes looked good and the mezzo looked very nice.

Microsoft Prime Fraud I'll be filing a complaint with Passport Unlimited as well, but wanted to warn others. Our family bought 5 meals at $14.99 each. That totals $74.95 and with tax comes to $82.07, which is what was on the original bill. We gave them our Prime card and credit card, and they returned 10 mins later with a... More

We tried it for dinner twice because we had a coupon. Not particularly impressed. Pretty bland food.

My wife and I stoped by here for a late lunch and for my first ever visit. I was thrilled with it! Great place, friendly staff, great food; isn't that the trifecta of hopes for a restaurant? We each ordered a gyro. Fantastic. Fresh ingredients, big pieces of meat and the tzatziki was fantastic. Saganaki = flaming cheese! Great appetizer... More

This is quite a distance from our home, but we make time every few months to eat here. It is consistently good Greek food and well worth our effort to get there. Highly recommend.

I tend to show up on weekend afternoons when things tend to be fairly slow. The food seems authentic Greek and I’ve enjoyed all of the dishes so far. Regular items I order include the Avgolemono...

When we get a need for Greek food, we come to Tantalus! The staff are so NICE! He even remembers our names and our kids. Service with a smile and good recommendations. Wonderful vegetarian options and the pita bread is so tasty. MUST try the Saganaki! Opah!

We have been coming here for years! We love the Flaming Cheese with pita bread! We stopped by for a late lunch. I had the lamb/beef Gyro sandwich with potato and veggies. Hubby had his favorite squid dish. We both loved them . The lentil soup is fantastic. The service is always great and the meal is really good! My... More
