Monthly Dinner Special

Dine Out Whatcom: 3 Course Meal


Taste some of our favorite Greek specialties and enjoy this wonderful dinner combination for the whole month!

Your meal begins with a small Greek salad topped with feta cheese, green peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, olives and our homemade vinaigrette, served with warm garlic bread. The main course consists of a tour of Greek favorites: a grilled chicken skewer, 3 dolmades served over rice pilaf and topped with our lemon sauce. For dessert, we treat you to our homemade baklava, the perfect sweet ending to a  traditional Greek meal.

Enjoy with a glass of our suggested wine: Makedonikos White Wine

What's for Dinner???

Too tired to think about "what's for dinner" or to do the cooking? Try one of our ever popular souvlaki dinners. Packed with flavor, this entree serves up grilled skewers of meat (your choice) served over rice pilaf and accompanied with a Greek salad. You can choose between chicken, pork, lamb or prawns. Either way, the meat is perfectly grilled and topped with our special lemon-Greek sauce.

Party Time!

No matter what the occasion, we are here to help you celebrate! We started off September with a great party to celebrate the upcoming wedding for Andre and Kalin. We were very excited that Andre, a former employee here, and his family made us a part of their special celebration; I just wish I hadn't forgotten my camera!!! Anyway, congratulations to the new couple! Below are some pictures of fun times I was able to capture. Thanks to everyone for sharing their memories and celebrating with us!
