The short answer is: as great for tourism as always.
In vacation areas, including every beach we went by, all the restaurants were open and doing good business.

Athens seemed to have more closed shops than the last time I was there three years ago. And people were waiting in line outside of every ATM.
But the majority of businesses are open. Grocery stores are well-stocked. Bars and restaurants seem to be doing OK. I'm told locals are spending less when they go out, but they are still going out.
We stayed near Syntagma Square, the site of most protests, but unfortunately there was no protest while I was there.
