A Classic Diner With A Greek Influence

A friend and I came here for brunch after staying across the street at the Motel 6 in Colchester. Sitting high up on the hill overlooking the mountains, the Athens Diner has that classic American diner feel to it but features authentic Greek dishes along with traditional diner food. We had a short... read more

We went for Breakfast. Make sure you are hungry! It is a traditional diner and has a lot of choices. The portions were huge, the service was GREAT and the food was excellent. I had the Crab cakes Benedict, my son had a Philly cheese steak Skillet, and my wife had eggs over easy with maple sausage & a biscuit.... More

Had lunch here with some friends and found a good variety of options. Ordered the lamb gyro since this is a Greek oriented diner. A bit too much sauce but otherwise, very good. Service was excellent and fries were done just right. I did not find the prices high for the portions served. I would absolutely return.

If sitting at a booth, you get a good view. If sitting in the corner in the back, it becomes very obvious the place needs a good cleaning and sprucing up. We ate in summer and there were still Fall decorations up. We also got sick after we ate there. Not the cleanest place. The food is good though. A... More

Stopped in for brunch on a Saturday. It was busy but we got seated quickly by the very perky, friendly host. I love diners, so I can be picky. Flying colors, people. Had a

This am, I ordered the breakfast Athens Special. It's just the right amount of food and delicious. I recommend it.

Stopped in for breakfast. This place can get busy and crowded but we were there early. Excellent service and lits to choose from. Many unique Greek spins and Irish spins on menu choices. Food prepared well served hot. If dieting there are some good selections on the menu. Loved the view of the green mountains from the booth seat. Had... More

I had lunch at Athens Diner on a weekday. It was somewhat crowded, nonetheless I was seated right away. The waitstaff were friendly and attentive. I had a grilled ham and cheese sandwich, a salad, and a soda. A cup of soup came for free as part of a special. All the food was tasty and well prepared. The bill... More

For some reason, I find myself going back here more than I should. Each time I hope I'm going to enjoy a better meal, but it is consistently average at best.

I usually have breakfast here about once a week. This place used to be known as Libby's Blue Line Diner but she sold it and it has become the Athens Diner for several years now. We have a couple of favorite waitresses who anticipate our every need for coffee refills and a good joke. The portions are generous and they... More
