Athens is tucked on a side street not far from the Verizon Center. Going there is like going back in time...family owned, local wait staff, old fashioned décor...just charming! Great Greek menu, large portions, specials every day (we especially like the Sunday specials). The lamb is to die for! If you haven't been there, you must try it!

Last Saturday we went out to dinner and let our friends pick the place. As we entered the restaurant at 530 pm I became a little skeptical because there was only one other party eating dinner. Boy, my first impression was totally off base. The menu was very resonably priced. My dinner was the lamb chops which they butterfly giving... More

My Parents wife and I recently went to the Athen's Greek Restaurant in Manchester to celebrate the Dad's new car. He recommended it and off we went. We arrived at about 5:44, easily found paid parking in front of a light colored restaurant face with a bit of a run-down signt. Upon entering we found only one couple was inside... More

The place looks really shady from the outside (I'm not a big fan of inner-city, personally) but it is very nice on the inside. The people were really friendly and helpful, and the food was excellent! The portions are pretty large, so count on bringing some home, and definitely do not skip the stuffed grape leaves if you're into that... More

I frequent this restaurant Since I was 18 and I am now 57 years old and have frequently been to this restaurant. I now go with an 89 year old vet and see the new glasses and the new salt and pepper additions, that does not CUT it! The food is full o0f fat. I can not believe the amount... More

The food is great. Gigantic portions. It would be nice if the decor got updated. But I will keep coming back!

If you're going to the Verizon Arena in Manchester, or to the Center of NH for a meeting, this is an excellent place to go for lunch or dinner--just a couple of blocks, easy walking distance, from both places. Lots of choices of Greek food on the menu. The avgolemono soup (lemon, egg, soft rice) was delicious, the Greek salad... More
