Enjoyed my meal with a side of hospitality

I was greeted by a Greek gentleman, who I believe was the owner. We spoke Greek, and it was nice for him to be welcoming. My father was born in Greece. I ordered the Pastichio. It was flavorful, The salad was fresh. The bread was homemade. I also had a glass of the Greek wine. It is a good... read more

We moved to the neighborhood that Athens serves, and had high hopes...... the food was terrible. That's really all I can say. It was not good, it was not clean, it was just a huge disappointment.

Last night we dined at athens for the first time since purchasing a home in Johns Island, SC. We passed it many times while moving personal effects from our prior home in Mt Pleasant. We were hesitant about stopping in. Having lived in NY where authentic Greek restaurants are numerous, we found it hard to accept there being one in... More

Everything we ordered was magnificent. I got the leg of lamb and my wife got the gyro platter. They both came with salads, which featured their delicious house dressing. Our waiter was friendly and very helpful with our gluten sensitivities. A+

everything is good. the eggplant appetizer, the mezes platter appetizer 1/2 chicken, gyros, salads and spanikopita are excellent. It is located near the Pour House and the Terrace movie theater. Make a night of it starting at the Athens restaurant.

Good food, but $14 for a gyro with a few potato wedges as a side? Seriously? Add one piece of baklava, a drink and a tip and this lunch for one was $27! That's what I would expect for a steak dinner(with wine!)

The Greek Cuisine is always good - services is hit and miss (never overly friendly). The Greek salads are huge, more then enough for two to share. Gyro was delish as were all other items we had.
