this is actually in Port Royal across from the big medical center, 950 Ribaut Road. We met a couple on the beach in Hunting Island who recommended this restaurant. It is small and casual but has some of the best Greek food I have ever had. The Mother makes everything fresh herself. they are open for lunch and some evening,... More

Wonderful homemade Greek food! Son Stefan takes the orders, Momma cooks, and everything is delicious in this small family restaurant. No lamb, but the beef and chicken dishes more than make up for that. Don't miss the daily specials, almost all served with Greek salad and choice of side dish. The Greek potatoes are a favorite, sometimes are gone by... More

Fabulous meal with the hubs for lunch. Had gyros and split the fries. Gyros were huge! The fries were cooked perfectly. The baklava was heavenly!

Too bad they don't offer a sampler!! Hard to decide on just one entree. Perfect portions of great food. Only draw back, "sweet" tea isn't sweet enough. I only drink unsweet, but my husband wants his"southern"sweet. We noticed many switched to other drinks, after ordering sweet tea initially. Baklava is to die for- a personal favorite of mine.

All the food is freshly prepared. I enjoy the eggplant or spinach pie with roasted potatoes. Stefan does a great job working the floor and Mom is an excellent cook.

We tried the Porkchops, flounder stuffed and gyro sandwich. Fun. Quick. Great food and Stephano is a engaging waiter. We had an early dinner after shopping.

Outstanding service from a very friendly waiter and Delicious Souvlaki. Moussaka was not quite hot enough but they quickly warmed it up, and comped a dessert as an apology.

Athenian Garden's is the most welcoming restaurant we've been to in years.....parking was full in front (which tells you something) so we parked out back and was invited to come up by the back stairs!!!! Just like home. Mom is in the tiny kitchen and Son doing the honors out front. Nice little place, tidy and spotless; certainly not fancy... More

Athenian Gardens is a small, family run Geek Restaurant (our server was very proud of his mother's everything from scratch cooking) with a dozen or so tables serving some of the best Greek food I have ever tasted. Their menu features a large number of selections, service is friendly, quick, and very accommodating, portions are large, and their prices are... More
