So so

Crab cakes were so so... nice environment and great staff. The Mojito was pretty good. I was at the bar and it looked like most customers were regulars.

This busy bar is right in the heart of LbtSea. Opens around 11am and remains busy until they close. On the beach means a great location and the food is fine. Free entertainment at all times of the day. Just watch how busy the car park is and you'll see what I mean.

We were looking for a restaurant within walking distance of our hotel in Lauderdale by the Sea and came upon several. We decided on Athena and enjoyed delicious Greek meals. We had the Spinach Pie - delicious!, the Spartan salad - excellent, and the Stuffed pepper and tomato (beef stuffed), also excellent. Sides of vegetables were scrumptious - green beans... More

Awful service. Waitress was either on breaks or Houdini. Waited forever for mediocre breakfast. Was not offered coffee refill. Go to mulligans. Much much better!

I will start by saying that the bar service at happy hour at Athena is top notch. The nightly specials are fabulous and the bartenders are always attentive. That said however, our server for this weeks dinner was just awful. She brought us the wrong drinks (we ordered dirty Martinis and she brought us drinks with limes in them that... More

This used to be one of the "go to"restaurants in Lauderdale by the Sea. I dont know what's happened. The crowds seem to have disappeared. Food is still good, love the Greek salad. The live music and dancing on the sidewalk in front still happens on weekends. Love that btw.. Hope they all come back
