We love Greek food, very good representation here.The place is casual but good. We are a fan of the food but service has been spotty. Let them know you are going to the Keswick after the meal.

We went here for dinner before a show at the keswick theater which is across street. When ever you are on a dead line to be somewhere you hope the service is quick. We had reservations and were seated promptly. The six of us all ordered different items off the menu and enjoyed them all. They are a byob restaurant... More

Just tried Athena for the first time, and we will definitely be back! After reading reviews, we had the appetizer combo and it was fantastic! It was a nice sized portion for sharing and came with seasoned pita. We then shared the gyro platter. That was slightly disappointing. We received more pita to eat it with, but the pita was... More

First: If you want wine with your meal, please know Athena is BYOB. We were hoping to get a quick meal before a show at the Kez and decided on Athena. We were seated promptly with no reservation and were offering menus. Our server mentioned the items that would turn quickest from the kitchen. So, between the four of us... More

Three of us had dinner. We started with the combination platter, which was enough for four, then two moussaka and a tilapia. It was all very good, and too much because of the large portions. We didn't need the combination platter because the others come with a nice salad, which we didn't see on the menu. The room was large,... More

We frequent Athena once or twice a year, and I just went for my birthday. The customer service was very attentive to our needs, and our waitress went out of her way to serve us. The best items on the menu are appetizers. The sample platter is a must, and the grilled octopus is also very good. I do not... More

We visited here before a show at the Keswick Theater across the street. They were very short handed, as our waitress was literally out if breath running from table to table. There were done young water boys and girls that could have been trained to help. The decor is tattered with a quirky Greek them. They have a covered outdoor... More

Once in a while this is the restaurant of choice before a show. Authentic Greek food. The appetizers and main course are prepared with care . If you like GREEK Especially the Gyro's. Go to Athena

We love Greek food, have had it many places. What a disappointment. Next time we'll drive the extra hour or so and go to Philadelphia for some really good Greek food on South Street. (Oh, and to top it all off, we were charged extra for some extra tzatziki sauce...and we're not told it would be extra when we ordered... More

Ate here with friends before a show. Waitstaff was efficient and friendly. My dining companions enjoyed the lamb and beef meatball appetizer, which is more accurately described as meat patties- they were huge, and enough for a meal. One of my dining companions ordered the combo platter which was large enough to feed two or three people. I had the... More
