This is not a place for quiet conversation, except at lunch. Pretend you're at a Greek wedding and join in the festivities. What's not to like? Fun atmosphere, reasonable prices. And those fancy Dyson Airblades? They've got those, too.

There's food too, of course, reasonably priced Greek standards that will be familiar to anyone who has visited the other parts of this mini Tampa Bay chain, which began in much humbler digs a decade ago in Ybor City.

Bar scene: Quiet by day, with a pleasant sidewalk lunch crowd of office workers and visitors, Acropolis turns into a raucous party at dinner celebrating all things Greek. Weekend nights find a belly dancer and live music, celebratory plate-breaking and napkin-throwing, line dancing snaking in and out of the place every hour, and waiters holding flaming plates of cheese and yelling "Opa!" The wine selection is entirely Greek, and there are five Greek beers to choose from. Sangria (a bit sweet) and margaritas (fresh lime juice) are 2-for-1 all the time.
