Good dinner,bad ending

Dinner was excellent along with the service! Was a little surprised with the owner's humiliation and unprofessional treatment of his staff.This was an unpleasant ending to an otherwise nice family night.

Okay food in a family style restaurant. I chose Greek (unlike most other diners). No rave review here, but the portions are large (appreciate the server warning me to go towards the left side of the menu and the more appetizer-sized items).

Fried clams for me and fried chicken for the husband--both were excellent. And the peanut butter pie was simply heavenly.

My main reason for going to Athenas is the Greek potatoes, but the rest of the food is amazing too. My last visit I had Molly as a waitress she was awesome attentive but not hovering over you.
