This place is a legend in Lowell but really needs a makeover. Carpet looks and smells like the 70s. Employees are really nice.

Typical Greek restaurant decor, lots of blue, lots of pictures of Greece. The food was just average. The outside of the lamb kebab meat was not crispy as it should be, the green beans with tomato were pretty blah. The dolmades were not very tasty or meaty. The chicken/lemon/rice soup was OK. Service was OK. It this is the only... More

The Athenian Corner Restaurant in Lowell Mass is a great restaurant if you are yearning for Greek specialties. I have eaten here a number of times and have never been disappointed. The lemon chicken & rice soup is a must have to start your meal. We also shared Greek sausages as an appetizer and they were delicious. Our table share... More

We paid $20 and got: 2 lemon drop soups - tasty and big portions 2 gyros (mine was chicken, his actual gyro) - large enough to actually take the meat and have another meal with Side of rice large enough that I'm using it with the leftover...

I had wanted to try this restaurant for years, as it came highly recommended. We arrived early on a Saturday night, which was a good thing as it got very crowded a bit later. I had the egg lemon soup, which was tasty, if a bit salty. I ordered the lamb shish kebab, medium rare, with a cabbage dish and... More

Best Greek and Armenian food around. Real belly dancers add fun to the night. Truly world class Greek and Armenian music played by some of the best musicians. Not the greatest interior but the food and entertainment make up for it.

I'm picky about my grape leaves. Prior to getting them at the Athenian Corner, the only grape leaves I found acceptable were those cooked by a Middle-Eastern friend's grandmother. Normally the grape leaves I get at restaurants are soggy, bland, and fall apart into a mess of disapointing coagulated rice-mush. But here at the Athenian Corner, they were amazing. These... More

We visited this place a long time before I joined tripadvisor and I honestly cant remember that dinner night. My husband was in the mood for lamb and not having anymore in the freezer and didnt feel like a trip to the market so he suggested either the athenian or the olympic resturant. Looking over both menus online, they were... More

Good lamb, salad ordinary, but it is a good place to meet up with friends and family for a pleasant meal. Lively music on weekend nights and lots of fun.

Upon walking in to this restaurant the first thing I noticed were the white tablecloths and the cobalt blue glasses, nice! It was downhill from there. The carpeting was filthy, the chairs were worn and the restaurant feel overall was "worn". We were seated toward the front of the restaurant so every time the door opened we got a blast... More
