I went here with a friend who is Greek. Food is not that great and service was poor. I would not recommend at this time.

We always stop here on our first night. We sit outside and watch the world go by while sipping Greek wine, eating Avegolemo soup and Greek salad. While you are waiting they bring warm pita bread and the best hummus ever!!!!

The food here is delicious. They have a bar if you don't want to sit at a table. They play music on the weekends. Servers are friendly and if you need suggestions just ask they will help.

We visited here with friends for a quick bite. Everything was really good.... from the lamb chops, grilled calamari that was seasoned perfectly & kabobs. If you're in the area is a good place to eat & walk around.

Very busy night spot parking could be a challenge. Great drinks there lobster roll are the best around.

Saturday nights, Athena Restaurant hosts an outdoor band. There is also an outdoor bar available as well as indoor and outdoor seating for the restaurant. Always crowded on the corner on Saturday nights and always laughter and dancing. Thank you Athena for your contribution to great community entertainment with your party on the corner.

4 until 7 is excellent value. Beers $2.5 and martini/marguetita $5. Also bar snacks at $5. An excellent start to our evening. The female bar star was very proficient but needs to smile and be a bit friendlier. The restaurant food looked very good

Third time visiting establishment, never dissatisfied. Cocktails are always just right, and food is delicious. This time we both tried the Salmon and Mashed Potatoes... we could have eaten a whole plate of the mashed potatoes, they were that good! Definitely recommend the food and service!
