Patio Guide: Greek Corner Ouzeri 

Folks looking to escape the daily grind and indulge in a mini-getaway need not look further than Greek Corner Ouzeri, located in Broadview Heights. Here you’ll find a comfortable, relaxed dining environment reminiscent of the sunny homeland of owner and chef Tommy Karakostas and his family.

“This is as close as we can get to going to Greece, without having the beach in front of you,” Karakostas likes to say.

Boasting one of Cleveland’s only complete Greek kitchens, it’s not uncommon to see plates of red snapper, sea bass, octopus, and calamari whizzing from the back in rapid succession, finding a home at packed tables where diners, young and old, come to gather.

Book a spot on the 40-seat patio, tucked just off the main dining room, and enjoy a glass of authentic Restina or a refreshing Mythos larger, and a smattering a small plates that are perfect for sharing (though you may not want to).

Stop by on a weekend and relax to some island tunes, played live by local musicians, or bring the whole gang out for a weekly Saturday lamb roast, cooked fresh on patio-side spit. We guarantee it’ll have you shouting “Opa!”

Greek Corner Ouzeri is located at 203 E Royalton Rd, Suite 115, Broadview Heights. Visit for more information.
