I would just like to say first and foremost that I've been to Acropolis many times and have always had a great time. Although the time before last my friend and I both found bits of glass in our drinks. She found a large shard in her water and all the waiters did was apologize and comp some of our drinks. I was very upset, but I liked the place and didn't want to cause any problems.
The entire evening started when a friend of mine mentioned that she had never been to Ybor City before. Well every time I think of Ybor I think of all the great times I've had smoking on hookahs, getting drinks and eating gyros at Acropolis. So, even thought its a Sunday and the day before New Year's Eve, I insisted we all go to Acropolis.
When being seated by the hostess I asked for a hookah menu and a drink menu. Then about 20 minutes go by and we still haven't been waited on. The hostess had to come by 3 times before someone actually took our drink orders. So obviously I was already upset at this point. A couple friends ordered some food. I recommended the gyros. I swear to you over an HOUR went by and our waitress was nowhere to be found. Finally we saw her on the other side of the restaurant dancing with 6 other waitresses. SIX! We waited for over an hour even though 6 waitresses were on shift. I finally told another waitress that we don't want to wait any longer for our food and that we just want to leave. No more than 15 seconds later our missing waitress ran out with cold food that she forgot sitting in the back for who knows how long. It was cold and stale and gross.
Here's my favorite part! My friend looked over her receipt carefully and it said $6.42. So she gave the waitress a $10 and she only gave her back 2 or 3 dollars. There was no gratuity charge on her receipt. The lady just stole it from my friend's change!
Pros: fun atmosphere, fun music
Cons: terrible service, glass in drinks, unsafe environment
