Mr. Greek in Belmar


Tucked away in a small strip mall inland from the beach, this Mediterranean spot is inviting, with its rustic decor and walkup-style ordering. The staff is very friendly and helpful with dish details and questions.


Family owned and operated since 2020, Mr. Greek has successfully brought Greek cuisine to the Jersey Shore. Sourcing products and ingredients right from Greece while using recipes passed down through generations has made for outstanding, authentic Mediterranean fare for all to enjoy.

Begin with appetizers touted as snacks. Falafels are excellent, as is the trio of dips served with warm pita. The homemade tzatziki is spot-on and addicting. Pita sandwiches are deliciously overstuffed and available with tzatziki, harissa, feta or tahini sauces. Open-faced pita platters are generously piled high with choice of meat, lettuce, pickled onions and tzatziki. Classics such as spanakopita and stuffed grape leaves are must-tries along with a sweet baklava to finish off your meal.


Don’t miss out on the secret menu, which offers build-your-own rice bowls and specialty pita wraps, including the namesake Mr. Greek Wrap. Catering and private events are available. BYO.
