Still Greek

They have good food for sure. Nothing extraordinary, but good, home-style Greek food. Service was excellent when we were there twice. I had gyro and some other things I can't remember nor know how to pronounce, but I like them all. If it weren't for a little expensive price tag, I would go back... read more

I had gyro and some other things I can't remember nor know how to pronounce, but I like them all. If it weren't for a little expensive price tag, I would go back more often for its Greek food.

Not only was the wait for food unbearably long but the service was totally indifferent to our table. The server did not mention any specials( I guess you are supposed to read them on the way in)and was visibly uninterested.Our entrees finally came after a 40 min wait and the server quickly set them down and walked away leaving us...

Pleasant atmosphere, very fresh, expertly prepared Greek food. Garden behind restaurant supplies some of the produce and herbs. Generous portions. Reasonable price for quality of food. Some great vegeterian choices. Very good service from family run staff.

If you enjoy greek food come here if you're in the area. It's a short drive from AC, NJ The food is freshly prepared and the wait staff is great. A plus is it's BYOD so bring a good bottle of greek wine to compliment the meal.

We went to Athenian Garden hoping for an outstanding meal. We did not get that. Perhaps that was partially due to the large, noisy party of 13 people who were also in the restaurant. They clearly had a wonderful experience but their pleasure diminished ours. Clearly, this was not the fault of the restaurant but they kept the chef and... More

For years this wonderful BYOB has been a favorite of locals, visitors, Stockton University faculty and discerning diners wanting a good meal at reasonable prices. HE cooks, SHE serves. Until recently the two sons helped in the dining room. Appetizers and main courses are wonderful...deserts can be skipped.

I don't understand why this place isn't packed. Family run restaurant serving authentic Greek food has bright dining room for a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. BYOB to enjoy your meal there or get your Greek to go. Either way you can't loose! OPA!

Visiting Galloway NJ and went here for dinner with 8 people on Friday night, had called for reservation. Our waitress met us at the door, sat us down, was very friendly. We ordered a number of appetizers and meals plus desert. Food was very good. We brought a cake to celebrate a birthday which they brought out for us. Restaurant... More

After reading all the other reviews, we dined here on a Thursday night.. The food was fresh and flavorful but, way overpriced. I had 6 shrimp on a skewer with a teeny tiny skewer of veggies over a small portion of rice - $25.00; everyone enjoyed their meals but, felt the price tag should be lower . It is a... More

My husband and I really enjoyed our dinner at the Athenian Garden. Warm pita bread was served with herb infused oil. I had kleftiko; tender lamb with a basalmic reduction, cheese and greens was delicious. The moussaka was the best I have ever tasted. No rooom for dessert. The open kitchen says good things about a restaurant. We'll be back.
