The Best in Athens

You may have to wait but always worth it. Great service, awesome food and great prices. Check out the cake case on your way in because you may want to take some home on the way out. Service is superior.

We ate here twice on a recent trip, once a lunch and once at dinner. The food was delicious both times. The crab cakes were some of the best I have ever had. The waiters were friendly and very attentive on both visits. Highly recommend.

Stopped in for a quick lunch after reading Trip Advisor comments and were delighted with our meal. Two had crab cakes with Caesar salad as an accompanying side and the other pan seared ravioli opting for the day's chicken rice soup.

I like to try new places everywhere I go. However, when I stumbled upon here I was met with one of the worst experiences I have ever had. Poor service, lack of variety on the menu, and sensory overload top the list of the issues. I will not be returning to this restaurant

Party of 6 arrived at 5:40p midweek and were seated immediately. (Had we waited another 1/2 hour, there would have been a wait. Tough decision on entree - so many great things to choose from. Went with short ribs - excellent! Not typically a dessert person, but we ordered several to share. Tiramisu was fantastic! Service also top notch!

Found the pork tenderloin completely bland coupled with unseasoned greens and misplaced sweet potato soufflé. Have enjoyed dining here in the past but would highly recommend the removal of this particularly entree.

Th owner himself led us to our table, this is southern hospitality. Great menu, especially the chicken is very tasty. Beautiful interieur, we had a table close to the window section. Very friendly service staff.

We really liked our dinner here. The menu and prices are definitely gear more for the non-student-budget crowd, which was pretty much what we were going for. Everyone enjoyed their meals. I had the horseradish crusted salmon which was quite good. My only comment about that was that the horseradish was not pronounced and the salmon was slightly overcooked. The... More

I was in Athens for a conference and my colleague and I went there at 8. It was busy, but we were sat immediately. Another colleague texted 15 minutes later that he would like to join. The waitress was very helpful getting us a table close by to put with our table, then somehow got our food to come out... More
