Saw a coupon on Restaurant.com for $25 off at Greektown Grille in Clearwater, so we decided to check it out. It’s a nice looking restaurant with lots of seating and a patio area.
The bread was fresh and warm, just the way I like it.
We had to spend $35, so we started off with a couple of half orders of appetizers. Some calamari and some dolmades.
The pepperoncini sauce that came with the calamari was a little spicy. The calamari itself was cooked very well. The dolmades were really good. At a lot of places, it’s more rice than meat, but these were mostly meat which was nice and they had a really good flavor.
Soup or salad came with our entrees, so we ordered one of each.
The Greek salad has very good dressing on it. The avgolemono soup was bursting with lemon flavor. It was a pretty thick soup and if I had any hope of eating my dinner, there was no way I was going to be able to finish it.
Loren ordered the Athenian Chicken.
He really enjoyed it. The chicken was cooked well and the spinach sauce and rice that came with it had wonderful flavors. I ordered the pastitsio with a side of roasted potatoes.
This was a wonderful dish. The pasta and bechamel sauce were both cooked perfectly. The sauce had a delicate taste of nutmeg. I’ve had the dish at other places where it was overwhelming. The potatoes were lemon roasted and tasty, but I was barely able to eat half my entree. But, I’m all for leftovers.
After the $25 coupon, the total bill was only $13. Talk about a lot of delicious food for an incredible price. This is definitely a place we’ll go back to again. Having an authentic Greek restaurant without having to drive into Tarpon Springs is a wonderful thing.
