Great fish and chips

At the back of Pike Place Market...could walk by and miss it. Great food, fast service and amazing harbour views. The bar was used in a scene from Sleepless in Seattle. Recommended to us by our tour driver, would have missed it otherwise.

Athenian’s restaurant is an interesting restaurant with a lot of character. My wife and I were seated at the top of the stairs in a small booth with a fantastic view of the bay. Both of us ended up with a bowl of chowder which was plenty for lunch. Our lite lunch was enjoyable.

We ate at your restaurant on May 14 2015. We had a wonderful view of the bay. the people were helpful with me getting in and out . I am disabled and was in my electric chair.

We were seated in a private area with our three kids. They loved it! Great view and we could talk and laugh freely without disturbing others. The chowder was great!! I also had the fish and chips which was great as well. Overall great experience with three kids!

The booth was too tight. We wanted the window open - the window at the booth next to us was open. The manager said "no, it screws up the air conditioning". The waitress was friendly, but scarce. The food was pretty pricey. We split a seafood bowl. It was OK, but not worth $20. There was only one oyster in... More

This is could be overlooked as a tourist trap. It was by me for over 8 years! I'm so happy I finally decided to stop in. The food was above average but the best part is the bar and the views. Grab your favorite beverage from the gorgeous wood bar and relax in a booth to watch the sunset or... More

Lovely view of the water and great prices for fresh seafood. The calamari appetizer was just great - perfectly cooked. I also enjoyed the microbrews - tried a creamy blonde ale that was lovely for lunchtime.

I had a long layover so I pooped into the city for an early dinner. Water-front view, local beers on tap in the heart of the Pike Market. I tried the Taste of Northwest which was excellent to try a small bit of everything. Server was excellent, but the restaurant was slow as I showed up at 4pm. Would recommend,... More

We ate here our first night in Seattle and loved the experience! We had a booth overlooking the bay, super friendly waiter, and the seafood saute was wonderful!

They were closing in 20 minutes, but fed us with personality and smiles. Chicken Piccata was different but so tender and delicious. Beer selection made us all happy.
