Favorite Greek food in Beaufort

This is the only restaurant in Beaufort that has Greek food...fortunately, it's a good one! Stephan and his mom run Athenian Gardens. The food is homemade, authentic Greek food which is always very good...I've never been disappointed. There are a lot of choices and variety on the menu and... read more

Had the lamb for dinner and very bad! When I complained to the owner , not really interested. Paid for our dinners and left, never to return.

Athenian Gardens was a highlight of our tip to Beaufort to get married. My wife is of Greek ancestry on her mother's side and is a remarkably good cook of Greek cuisine. Indeed, while I am no doubt biased, I'd say hers is the best Greek I have ever had, including a week of meals in Greece itself! In any... More

The kabobs and gyros are really good. I believe this is a small family owned restaurant. They have great prices but a wonky hours. We've shown up a few times only to find they were closed. We've only ever gotten our food to-go so I can't comment on the dining experience.

Stefan and his mother always impress me with their wonderful attitudes and delicious food. Not once have I had a bad meal and I recommend it to everyone! If I could eat the baklava all day and not gain an ounce I would. Fabulous all around!

Small, crowded but GREAT food and service at a reasonable price. Does not look like much from the outside. As they say, you can't judge a book by it's cover.

Great Greek food. Don't let the looks of the outside scare you away. Very clean inside and the food is delicious. Mom cooks the food and the son waits on the table, they make you feel at home.

The place does not look like much from the outside but the food was excellent with great, friendly service. We had lunch there and were not disappointed. My husband and I both had the spinach pie and Greek salad and even the vinaigrette dressing was handmade by the mother and cook. Then we were given free dessert, some delicious baklava.... More

We are extremely pleased with our entire dining visit to the Athenian Gardens restaurant . We were warmly greeted the manager and directed to seat ourselves anywhere in the dining area. Once seated , our waitress was prompted at our table to take our drink order. My husband ordered a pork sandwich , on pita bread. And I ordered the... More

Do not pay any attention to the building exterior-just go in and have a fantastic dining experience. The place seats probably 25-30. It is a family run Greek restaurant, Mom the chef and her son the waiter. The food was absolutely great with service to match. The place is spotless and prices very reasonable. There were four of us and... More
