Our first visit was on a busy Friday night and we had reservations. We were promptly seated at our reserved time and subsequent service from our waitress was superb. Food was good but several items on both my plate and my wife's plate were lukewarm.

Decent food at an ok price. Would eat there again. They had large tables for bigger parties , but when we visited several parties of 1-3 took an 8 person table inside and many of us with larger families with young children had to eat...MoreThank you for your response. We appreciate your feedback and we will be looking into the possibility of splitting up some of those tables to accommodate those smaller parties.

My husband and I heard this place was good but our experience was not. We will not be going back there. I ordered the pulled chicken and it was nothing but a piece of cooked chicken, not evened seasoned broke into huge pieces and put on a hard bun.

This is my first time here. I came in for breakfast and the place was full. All available registers were open. The cashier that helped me was very nice and accurate with my order. I had the egg and steak sandwich (Texas Toast), and it was very good and I would return to get it again. The internet didn't work so good, so I couldn't stay and get ready for my meeting this morning, before work. But overall the place was clean, and the food was good.

Reviewed By Paula P - Cincinnati, Ohio

Armed with our Groupon, we trekked over to Aurora to try out this historic restaurant. We were so pleasantly surprised by the fabulous food, comfortable laid-back atmosphere and attentive service. Shrimp and grits to die for, fried mozzarella appetizer among other things, were all delicious. It was difficult to choose what to order from the very diverse menu.
We’ll be back! Next time we’ll try the burgers.

Zorbas Greek Restaurant

Reviewed By kentuckylongrifle - Independence, Kentucky

We were heading over to Shawnee lookout State Park to do some hiking and opted to stop in Lawrenceburg to eat here on the advice of a coworker who lives close by.

We arrived a few minutes after 1:00 PM and noted that the restaurant was near capacity with only one table remaining. For me, a good sign the restaurant is good, is a packed house. Being our first time there, we waited to be seated until we were informed we should place our order at the register, pay, then take a table and our food would be brought out.

We reviewed the menu on the wall, decided and then ordered taking the last remaining table. For as busy as the restaurant was, they appeared short staffed but our service was prompt, courteous and we received our food shortly after ordering.

My son ordered the Gyro burger with greek fries, my wife, the Fisherman’s platter with the salad ( I know, who goes to a Greek place specializing in gyros and orders fish?). I ordered the Greek salad asking them to hold the Feta cheese and go lightly with the greek salad dressing.

My son and wife’s order came prior to mine and while my wife was looking over her meal, my son was devouring his. The missus thinks he finished his burger in 3 bites but, I believe he came up for air at least a couple of times. Score one for Zorba’s as my son can be somewhat picky.

My wife was a few bites into her meal, when a very apologetic waitress delivered the news that my salad had been made using the normal amount of dressing and they had included the Feta cheese. She informed me it would take just a few minutes to remake it. By this time my son was down to just a few fries and surreptitiously eyeing my pita bread, the only part of my meal to arrive.

Since we were going hiking, I was feeling somewhat adventurous and told her to go ahead and bring out the completed meal. She again offered to make me a new one, but I reiterated, I would try the already completed one.

Once it arrived, I knew it would be easy enough to pick around the crumbled Feta. It’s not that I don’t like Feta, but I’m reducing my dairy and honestly it’s not my favorite type of cheese. The salad itself was very good and I enjoyed it. Somewhat too much dressing for my taste as I like my salads lightly seasoned. If Zorba's is reading this, a step up would be to use spinach instead of the iceberg lettuce (my two cents). S

Sometime during my conversation with the waitress and my salad arriving, my pita bread disappeared. Eyeing my son criminally, I received the “who me?” look in return and had to finish my salad without bread.

With the exception of the muddled order, our dining experience was quite pleasant. We enjoyed our food and with the exception of my wife, we finished our dinners.

The service was above par and the restaurant itself was tidy and very clean. Upon visiting the restrooms I was pleased to see them well stocked and clean. There was some stickiness to the floor, but seeing how clean the floor appeared, I attribute that to the common mistake of using too much cleaner in the mop water (along with not rinsing well).

Due to the way orders are taken at the register, I would suggest that if you're asking for a change to what’s offered on the menu item you’re requesting, ask them to repeat the order back to you to confirm your request. Something I did not do.

All things considered, we enjoyed our visit and when over that way again, would not hesitate to eat there a second time.

Oh my this town is beautiful. We stayed outside of Lawrenceburg. The purpose for the visit is my daughter, her husband and the kids, my husband and two friends ran a spartan run. Very interesting area. Small mountain or large Hills....beautiful... I was impressed with the scenery. The weather was nice and the sun was bright. Very specific day. This the first time the kids did their first spartan run and they seemed to enjoyed it. Also my husbands first spartan run as well. He finished yeaha.. A winner in my book. Very proud of him.
After the run we checked into hotel then my husband and I hit Hollywood casino I'm the evening. The next day we crossed the Ohio River to go into Cincinnati Ohio. Great time

The restaurant was clean, with spills constantly being attended to. The food quality was good, but the service was a bit slow (in my opinion) when compared to other locations I've visited. With that said, the service was also friendly.
