The food was good but the atmosphere was unprofessional. The cooks in the kitchen were playing rap music at 7am and it had very inappropriate language. The waitress was rude once we decided We wanted something else to drink other than the nasty warm tap water we were given. I won't be back

Horrible waitress. 10 minutes to be addressed after ordering coffee first. Refill; yeah got up and poured my own. Sent two out of three meals back. Still bad the second time. Never saw the waitress again until she brought the check (too busy talking in the waitstation). The check was wrong. Only kids working. I'll go see the owner tomorrow.

I've lived in this area for many years and for some reason have never given the Athenian Coney Island a try until recently. Now I am SO glad that I did. WOW is all I can say! It's not your typical coney island that looks like it's out of the 1970s. This is modern, up-to-date and immaculately clean coney island.... More

This is a great little coney island. The interior is pretty high class for a coney island, and in warm weather they have outside seating. The food is terrific, a broad menu, and always good service. This place fills up at lunch and also for breakfast on the weekends.

I've been eating here with my family for over ten years and have always had great, friendly service and food at reasonable prices. The menu is "upscale coney" and has a wide variety to choose from. I enjoy the salads and soups especially, but have tried everything from omelets to kebabs and never had a bad meal. It's about the... More

This is by far the best coney restaurant in Novi. The food is always fresh and tasty. The updated decor is modern yet warm. The wait staff are always friendly and efficient. Have never had a bad experience and we go here frequently. Recommend the salads and breakfasts although everything else we've tried has also always been very good.

I don't have a problem with the food - though it's a bit overpriced - or the wait service. My problem relates to their greedy policy. I was a regular customer, used to eat there for lunch (alone) a couple of times a week, and with my family about once a month. Today, I went into the restaurant after one,... More

This place is tucked out of the way so you can easily miss it, the entrance is a bit strange but once you enter it is very nice. Plenty of young wait staff eager to help you. Even though the place is not very big it feels spacious inside. You can see the cook preparing your food, and everything in... More
