Called ahead to order food, only a 20 minute wait from time of phone call to food pick up. Large menu, lots of choices. Glad we called for take out as it was busy and people were waiting for a table. I had a gyro platter and it came with a huge salad with great Greek dressing, eight slices of... read more

Not only do all I hear is continuous cussing from the cooks but our waitress Charmane I think her name was is very rude. Never coming here again. The other waitresses were flirting with the cooks through the window instead of of doing their jobs! What a clown show. My three yr olds ears had to be glued together so... More

Forgot I had been here years before, and having missed lunch ona busy work day, stopped in planning to treat myself to a decent meal.. WRONG! Got seated next to the dirty dish bin where wait staff was busily tossing in the dishes so it was LOUD. Quickly offered a menu and chose the day's special--a pork tenderloin with potatoes... More

A typical Greek family restaurant. Hugh menu with lots of daily specials. The place is clean and up to date. The staff was very friendly! All the positive reviews are correct. Try this one.

Athena's has a nice variety of food on their menu. They are always busy, which tells you they offer decent food at a fair price. Many breakfast items are offered any time of day. The souvlaki is very good . They also feature specials every day of the week.

Even though it was a very busy Sunday morning at Athena's we were seated right away. The wait for service took awhile but the staff was pleasant and helpful even though they were so busy. The food was delicious and prepared exactly as we ordered. We like it here.

Friday night is our fish fry night. They serve a huge haddock which is battered that we enjoy, served with french fries, cole slaw and macaroni salad. We usually have a doggy bag when leaving.

I love this place so much. After moving out of the state I tried so hard to find a place like Athena's. Every time I'm in town I make sure to make a visit. The food is always delicious. There is a lot to choose from on the menu! It gets pretty busy during breakfast and dinner, but I always... More
