The Acropolis is a decent place to get better quality Greek food, than what you'd find at a mall or carnival, but not anything like you'd find in Europe.

The menu is pretty restricted to very traditional things to most stuff you would find at your mall's Gyro bistro, but with a bit better quality. The meat was good, and not stuffed with fillers, the lettuce was all iceberg, which is not my cup of tea but their house dressing made up for it. They use decent feta cheese too, so that made the salad better.

Our waitress was very attentive and friendly towards our two year old, who was acting like a two year old for the most part. There are no beers on tap, but a variety in bottle form. I had some Kwak, and they have other stuff ranging from Geek, German, Belgian, to American Craft. The beer is pricey, so be prepared to have your jaw drop. What isn't pricey is the food, and the restaurant's dining atmosphere is circa 1910. There were lots of Halloween decorations set up, which helped keep my kid somewhat scared in her seat... A good psychologist must run this place.

Acropolis is a Greek place in downtown Belleville on West Main. Street parking (metered and not) is abundant in the surrounding area.

The interior is small with booth seating along the left side and a small bar on the right. Being a Greek restaurant primarily, there are a lot of kitschy decorations, pictures etc with a Greek theme. The available beers are all located on a shelf behind the bar.

As for the beers, there is a relatively decent selection for such a small town, including a couple I don't remember seeing elsewhere. There are no taps and around 25 bottles such as Zatek, Schlafly, New Belgium, O' Fallon, Czechvar, Bavik, Utenos, Burgerbrau, and Kostritzer.

Service has always been good on my lunch visits. The staff is very efficient and friendly, but don't expect too much in the way of beer expertise.

Acropolis has great gyros, both as a sandwich or a platter.

Overall this spot is not a beer destination but is definitely worth a visit for good food and a fair selection of craft and import brews.
