Great food and atmosphere

Great little family owned restaurant. Authentic Greek staff who were very friendly and attentive. Food was awesome and served family style. A small platter is more than enough for three people. We had a great time.

The Athenian is a great choice for couples or family dining, and they have menu options to suit both. We've been here several times, and the food is consistent. It has a friendly, homey feel to it. We really enjoyed our meal, which included avgolemono soup, souvlaki, salad, Greek potatoes, pita and tzatziki sauce.

We ordered the Chefs Special which had a little of everything and the food was all the proper temperature! It was enough for three hungry people. We also ordered a glass of wine. They basically ask red or white. We said Red then they asked dry or not, and we said dry. It was very good and the pour was... More

We love this local family owned Greek place! Large menu, huge portions with a warm ambience. The owners always recognize us when we return. The staff is helpful and know the menu and can help you with selections if you are unfamiliar with Greek food. With a family four, we can usually order 3 dishes to share and still end... More

We found this restaurant by accident. We were in the area and saw it and decided to try it for lunch. We were happy with the choice. We were greeted upon entering and seated immediately. Took a while to review the menu but decided on the spanokopita appetizer and a gyro sandwich. Both were very tasty and a good size... More

We go to this restaurant frequently during the year. Our friend went there the first night it opened years ago. It is family owned and they greet you like family. Service is superb. The Saganaki (fried cheese) is wonderful and draws attention to your table because of the flames. Prices are reasonable. We always get the mixed meat platters and... More

We first visited Athenian when we moved from Europe back in 2005. We had just left a summer vacation in Greece and were missing the food. When we found Athenian, it was a must visit. We felt we were in a good position to determine how good Athenian's food was compared to what we had only a short time prior.... More
