We had a very nice dinner at the Athenian Inn. This restaurant is right in the heart of Pike Place Market and has great views overlooking the bay. The shrimp bisque was outstanding! The service was very good and the prices are very reasonable.

We had a great visit here. The service was great and my salmon fish and chips was fantastic. My wife's salmon was also great. The price was spot-on and the view is hard to beat. I would go here again in a heartbeat.

I was hoping for better from this fantastic location overlooking the water above Pike Place market. Fish itself was ok - hard not to be when the fish is that fresh right below - but everything that went with it was not very good. As in, a salad was just a pile of lettuce, side veggies were steamed to death.... More

A classic escape from the dime-a-dozen chic gastropubs popping up on every block throughout Seattle and the entire United States. What the Athenian lacks in polished interior and sophisticated materials, it more than makes up for in casual, friendly service, classic substance and unpretentious charm. The food is solid waterfront fare, nothing trendy or fancy, just the calamari and simply... More

The restaurant is located in Pike Place Market, holds a lot of character and overlooks the waterfront. We went for an early lunch on a Friday and were able to get a booth overlooking to water which was great. Food was reasonably priced and tasty, I had the fish tacos which were very good and the food we saw going... More

One of the best happy hours in ALL of Seattle. And one of the nicest water views in town. Enjoy a frosty mug (yes, they're really frosty) of your favorite beer and down it with some of the best and freshest seafood in the market. Long waits at times, but definitely worth it. Servers are genuine, laid back and professional... More
