Great place to have a few drinks before or after a movie.

We were out last night to see the new James Bond flick “Quantum of Solace” and I suggested to the group to go check out the place since it is right across the main street of the Silver City movie theatre complex after the early movie.
I have been there many times before with friends and my wife at times and it’s definitely the drinks that make the place a worthwhile stop. Whether it’s their famous brewed beer, most popular martinis, good selection of pub wine, or spiked coffee, it’s a grown up’s pit stop before or after a good movie that makes this place worth the price of admission.
We started out with the garlic fries and spinach & artichoke appetizers. They weren’t too bad. My wife mentioned that she liked the three dips for the fries, but we were really turned off by the stale tortilla chips that we got spinach and appetizer.
Our friends had the steak and a pizza, and overall they said that they should have stuck with appetizers instead, but overall conversation and adult beverages made a night at the movies with friends a great early evening out.
Our server was nice and polite, and kept to corporate protocol.
Food was acceptable, but the ambience and beverages make it worthwhile for a pit stop before or after the movies.

This is the place where the Mad Greek was before they moved.
Love the food, this Vietnamese food is good -- Chicken or beef skewers, vermicelli, and a pork spring roll and I'm good to go.
Pho mmmm good soup!
Deep fried bananna for dessert, and we are good to go.
The place is kinda dated since it reminds me of the old place that used to occupy it's space with little to no changes.
Our waitress was polite and made sure that we were happy.
All in all good value for your dinner dollars and very,very casual dining gives an asian flavor a fun time out.

You'll never eat at Subway again after having a Bob's Super Sub here!

WARNING -- Only order the foot long Super Sub if you haven't had anything to eat for a week! -- WARNING
You will never go to those other sub places once you've tried a Bob's Super Sub. Double steak, capicolla, pepperonni, carmellized onions, double motza, & OMG HUGE, lettuce tomato grilled to perfection.
Give me a diet coke in a can and I'm in heaven here.
I have been coming here for years on/off when I have been out with the boys the night before, or when I want a Tim The Tool Man type of lunch.
The Korean couple that own the joint are allways nice and happy to see me. The decor is very 70's ish, and reminds me of a greasy spoon, but thats OK cause I won't bring my wife or have a financial/legal meeting here because I'm here to eat my favorite Sub Sandwitch!

This is our favorite Greek place in Steveston.
The baked snapper is my favorite dish here. I love the tomato based green bean veggie side. MMMM good!
My wife loves the Calamari dinner, and all the greek dishes that we've tried, so far, are as authentic as you can get.
Ambience is great with perfect mood lighting and a great selection of greek music from their CD collection quietly plays in the background. Most nights are busy till closing time as families and friends chatter to make you feel like you are right at home as you relax and enjoy dinner. If you are lucky enough to get a window seat, people watching Moncton Street is an added bonus.
Service is all ways friendly, and very good even when it's really busy.
If you like Greek food and you haven't been here -- you don't know what you're missing.
Get there before 6PM or call for reservations.
