Kid-friendly, good service, and good food. The salmon fish tacos were amazing! Would get those again next time. I would recommend eating here!

We were lucky that we did not have to wait too long for a seat and had an excellent window view over the bay, the service was quite good even though it was busy, the fish I had was was very good and the portion large with plenty of chips etc. Next day on the Sunday we went back there... More

Happened upon this in Pikes Market and very glad we did. They seem to tell everyone there is a 10 min wait but be persistent All tables have window views which is really nice. ( it wouldn't hurt if they washed the windows though) We sat upstairs which was cooler and quieter Our waiter was friendly and helpful. We had... More

We were looking for a moderately priced ($20-30 entrees) with a good view of the bat and sunset. We landed on the Athenian inn and had dinner there on 8/25/15 on the 2nd floor with a window seat. Our waitress (Sanae) was wonderful, she helped me decide on some of the local beers and recommended food based on our tastes.... More

Everything about this place was great! The seafood was fresh, cooked well and very tasty! Our server, Joshua, was friendly and engaging, and even recommeded a couple of sights to see in the city. The view from our upper level booth was spectacular! So glad we overheard someone talking about this place while waiting in line at the restaurant across... More

We stopped in here twice- once during a hectic lunch time, and once for breakfast during our 4 day stay in the city. Each of my meals was wonderful. The fish was very fresh, and our server both days was very attentive and helpful with the menu. I thought the menu was well-priced and the portions were perfect. The view... More

My girlfriend and I ate here with another couple as soon as we arrived in Seattle. Overall the experience was good. The only problems I have is our waitress was not that great or attentive to our needs. Our glasses of water stayed empty and half of the things we ordered never came nor did she even realize they had... More

My wife and I live in the Seattle area and we enjoy frequenting the Athenian Inn. We especially enjoy a booth upstairs in the bar. The booths are small so if you are use to lots of elbow room you might request a table. The menu contains daily lunch specials which most recently the seafood lasagna was enjoyed by out... More

Love this restaurant! We stumbled onto it while roaming Pike Place Market w/ zillions of other tourists, looking for a non- touristy restaurant, and figuring the seafood can't get fresher than this. Plus, we love Greek food, so it was our first choice just from looking at the place and the menu. It was barely Greek- specific anymore, but we... More
