Our favorite restaurant in Beaufort, SC

Athenian Gardens is about a 10 minute drive from our house, and we would drive further for this home-made, consistently good Greek fare. Really, for the money, I think this is the best food in town. We routinely order the chicken plate or spanikopeta, and my wife loves the retsina wine. Good... read more

Really great food prepared fresh. Service is attentive. The roasted Greek chicken with potatoes and salad is a must!

We used to eat here quite often during our first tour and loved it then. Now that we are here again, we stop by whenever we get the chance. Great place that has some of the best Greek food you can find. A must stop for those who love this type of food!

This place has terrific Greek food. Our favorite place to vacation is Crete so this place was great! Everything we tasted was delicious. We started with falafel and ended with baklava and in between, I had really good souvlaki with fries and Greek salad and grilled pita while my husband had the flounder stuffed with feta and spinach with rice...

This is a wonder place for a good, inexpensive meal of home cooked Greek food. This place caters to the lunch crowd from the hospital across the street, so they are open for lunch M-F, but only open for dinner W-F. They are closed on the weekends. The sign says they are open until 8 PM, but don't count on... More

The restaurant is small in size (seats 40+) but big on attentive friendly service. The family exudes a welcoming environment to make sure they exceed your expectations in food quality and service. You can't go wrong here. We plan to be a regular from now on.

We had a late lunch at this clean, small, unpretentious restaurant, where we were greeted by the owner and the cook -- son and mother. We tried the special, moussaka,which was scrumptious, flavorful, made of beef. We also enjoyed the souvlaki, made with well-seasoned, perfectly cooked tender pork loin, over flavorful rice pilaf. The pita is delicious, greek salad tasty,... More

One word, authentic! The restraint is a small place located across from Beaufort Memorial Hospital. It's run by a Son & Mother duo whom know Greek cuisine. The food is awesome and fairly priced, and you cant pay for the drama between Mama & Son. Soooo funny. Mama is from the old country and has brought many a recipe from... More

We absolutely LOVE eating here! Great food! And a very warm environment!!!! Out of anywhere in Beaufort I have to say this is our favorite, not only because of the food but because of the family that owns and runs the business. Always greats us and I'm sure everyone with smiling faces cheery friendly attitudes and the support you get... More
