Excellent Greek BYOB

After reading that this restaurant is family-owned and run, and that it is a BYOB, we decided to meet some friends for dinner, who had never eaten Greek food. As an introduction to Greek cuisine, we ordered the trio meze of skordalia, grilled eggplant and roasted peppers--classic enough not to... read more

Was in the area for a retreat over President's Day weekend, and had been looking forward to a meal at Athenian Garden since the last trip. Friendly service, and great food. Will definitely go back if I'm in the area.

My husband and I had a romantic lunch the week between Christmas and New Years. BYOB made our meal even more reasonable. The waiter was so friendly and brought us two wine glasses and opened our bottle right after seating us. He made a few suggestions from the menu and the food was ready in no time. Everything we had... More

Awesome food and the place is run by a family. Mom and dad cook and the 2 sons wait tables. The Moussaka was out if this world and the chicken gyro was also great. The waiter was friendly and happily explained menu items to us. Can't wait to go back.

We were visiting from Ontario and happened upon this local Greek Restaurant. Best tasting food ever. Greek salad was awesome, every dish was full of flavour and the Baklava was to die for.

Another great little place near Atlantic City. Get out of the city to this gem. I had an oven baked bass filet and my wife had salmon. Both prepared very well. This is also a BYOB.

We are visiting this area and since we love Grrek food we wanted to try Athenian Garden. The staff is very friendly and gracious. Our dinners were delicious and everything appeared to be very authentic. Since it is a BYO we were able to save some money and have a wonderful experience. We would definitely return to this very lovely... More

We happened to be passing through this area and stopped to hopefully enjoy falafel. We were not disappointed. My husband and I split a falafel sandwich and an order of hummus with fresh, hot pita. We loved the sandwich: the falafel had great flavor and a nice crunch to the exterior and the taziki was the perfect compliment. The hummus... More

Been going there for several years and was happy to see it is still open. No frills, but food is very good with a nice selection.
