this reminds me of "Happy Days"

This was a diner open late night in downrown Athens. It's a great place to go if you are looking for that nostalgia feel and a great burger & fries with an old fashion milkshake.

This used to be one of my favorites in Athens but 3 bad experiences in a row has me questioning my choices. I did go during football weekends but the restaurant wasn't busy so that really didn't explain the inattentive and at times down right lousy service we received. Food reviews were mixed at the table and several of us... More

Always a delight to stop here for lunch or dinner. The food is excellent and the variety of items is always top notch. Food, service, and ambience make this spot a for sure winner every time.

East West Bistro is a Unique restaurant that combines various flavors of food. I like going there. The menu changes from time to time so it doesn't get boring. Good quality food.

The inside is warm and pleasant and outside it's fun to watch people walk by in the early evening. I had the bruschetta and it was really good.

We have been to East West multiple times during visits to Athens. They have wonderful food!! It is a little pricy, but it's definitely worth it. The East West Burger is one of my favorites, as well as the grilled cheese sandwich! The fries and sweet potato fries are also great sides! I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone...

I like the upstairs room as the downstairs can get quite loud and busy. Food is good, atmosphere is casual and trendy.

Excellent service and delicious food. Huge variety of food options as well as wine, liquor, and beer. Servers were very accommodating when it came to modifying dishes into something vegetarian for me and their desserts were an added, delightful surprise!

I have noticed lately there have been some pretty negative reviews on this place, which makes me a little sad. I frequent East West on a regular basis and have never had a bad experience with food or service. At lunch, the prices of the restaurant are very reasonable and I alternate between the fish tacos and smoked salmon salad,... More

I happened upon East West by accident and was happy that I did! My experience with service there has been mixed, but I honestly could say the same about every place I've eaten downtown. The menu was varied and exciting, prices were more than reasonable, and everyone I've ever taken there has found something that made them say,
