One of the best Greek Restaurants I have ever been. SO WORTH IT!

We drove up from Salt Lake, on Jan 17. We drove around and found the Athenian. One of the best Greek Restaurants I have ever been to, and we travel the world and this IS A PHENOMENAL PLACE. First I loved the atmosphere, so tastefully done. The owner or manager was so gracious, she kept... read more

This is straight off an episode of "Restaurant Impossible" pre-make over. Wow! It's old, dingy, dirty and the food would be thrown off the table if Chef Irvine was there. There was hair in my food, floaters in my glass and the waitress put her hand all over our Pita bread. Yeah, no, find yourself a McDonalds.

DO NOT EAT AT THE ATHENIAN if you want to have a good dining experience!!! I have eaten at the Athenian several times over the past ten years. I live in Salt Lake City and travel to Ogden for a change in scenery and to go to events at the Union Station or see the Christmas Village and lights setup... More

I'm not sure what happened. I'll admit, it had been some time since my wife and I had eaten at the Athenian, but upon our most recent visit we are all but appalled. First, our waitress seemed like no tip we could possibly give her would make it worth serving us with a smile. She and the other members of... More

We went for lunch to this restaurant. There were only a few other customers, but my wife had to wait for 45 minutes (!) to get her main dish. Moreover, the waitress was neither particularly friendly nor attentive, although she eventually apologized for the long wait (which was the cook's fault). The food, when it arrived, was very good; no... More

I love Greek food and I struggle to find the authentic places that are available in other cities however The Athenian comes pretty close to getting it right. What they lack in a home run they make up for with options. I find the service hit or miss - with it generally being better when they are a bit busier... More

I love the history on 25th street and the Greek food is very good. Yes, you can get a gyro at a Greek fast food but I always recommend trying the food on the 25th street.

I believe you should be able to find better Greek food in Ogden but I do not know where. The sandwiches are good, the kebabs a little dry. Service was wonderful! They even had belly dancers!

Very good appetizer and main meals. Lamb was very good. Service was excellent and the prices VERY reasonable. It is on 25th st which has many interesting shops and bars; it was close to our motel.
