Greek at its Best

As Beaufort residents, we can always count on Stefan and his Mom to impress our visitors. We've had a dock for snowbird boaters for years, and several of them insist on a Greek meal at Athenian Gardens. This is not "fine dining".

I've been coming here since they opened. Stefan and his Mom are the Greek experts imo- they are also Greeks or Greek-American themselves! I always order the same 2-3 things (always on a diet) but their gyro meat, felafel, pita bread, spinach pie and baklava are just excellent! I usually order the small Greek salad and top it with felafel... 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.

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 service is always good. Adjacent parking is limited but there is... More

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.
