There were so many dishes that looked good on the menu we had trouble deciding what to get. Excellent Harissia burger with a slight spiciness.

Visiting Athens; the couple who live there suggested we go here for lunch. The special was "Grits and Shrimp". That's what I ordered, and it was DELICIOUS!!!!! The shrimp was blackened and delicious. The grits creamy; also had bacon and basil. One of the best meals I've ever eaten! Unfortunately, we live in Texas! I would definitely go again and... More

Went for a dinner on a Saturday night when in town with a young child. The host did not seem too happy to see a family show up that was taking in sporting events for UGA during the day and not all dressed up. Tried to get us to sit outside but the allergies couldn't take more pollen. We sat... More

We love Athens for many reasons and one of the reasons is that there are so many culinary delights here (and we don't mean the chain restaurants). The East-West Bistro has been around for years and we've always enjoyed it, especially their Thai Chicken Soup. Today was a beautiful day and we sat at the window as others enjoyed their... More

I met a client there on a slow Monday nite. The service was great, relaxed and friendly. The small bar is well stocked and the atmosphere is really cool. Food was really good, prepared well and presented nicely. Price was fair for the quality of food. I'll go back next chance I get.

Classic Italian/American dishes, thin crust pizza, pasta, etc. in a very nice atmosphere. Great lunch prices.

This restaurant is a good choice for location (on Broad), good food and service. Nice tall ceilings and lower but not dim lighting. Full bar. Although they were out of the sushi I ordered, pretty full offering on their menu. If you're not in the mood to go finer dining (like Nona's) but still want some flavor of upscale, this... More

We rented out the upstairs for a dinner before a sorority formal event. The space catered nicely to our large group (40+) and the set menu was delicious. The owner was wonderful and gave us a few free appetizers and bottles of wine. It was a positive experience and I would love to do it again.

We really enjoyed our trip to East West. It was a Tuesday night so it was a little slow after the happy hour crowd (maybe a work get together) left. You could feel the vibe deflate a little because it is a big space. Nice simple decor, typical downtown Athens layout with a bar up front and long and deep... More

East West Bistro is by far my favorite place to eat in Athens. I absolutely love the sweet potato chips and the salmon. I went here for the majority of special occasions when I was living in Athens and it is one of the places I miss the most!
