Fort Lauderdale Beach isn’t Corfu by any stretch of the imagination, but this beach-adjacent Greek restaurant does a good job of making hungry patrons feel as if they’ve crossed a temporary bridge to all things Mediterranean. The ownership team of brothers Sam and George Kantzavelos offer the kinds of dishes any tourist, local, or Greek native can appreciate in a casual setting that channels New Jersey diner fare at its finest. As a result, Greek Islands Taverna remains a longtime favorite among the beachgoing crowd thanks to its wide-ranging menu of classic Greek dishes, reasonably priced. Go for classics such as roast leg of lamb, flaming saganaki, chicken shish kebab, and a killer avgolemono (lemon chicken soup). New Normal: The restaurant doesn’t take reservations, but tables are spaced at least six feet apart.
