“One of the few Kemah Boardwalk area restaurants I'll fight traffic to get to when I want Greek food. I like lunch specials here with a glass of wine. And they've got Spanakopita! If you prefer American fare, they have a steak night during the week,and Sunday brunch. Good choice when you've burned out from seafood and Mexican food. ”
