This restaurant has a large seating capacity. The wait staff still seem to be able to remember your name and where you sit. My favorite dish is calamari served on a Greek salad. The fish - fish and chips- is lightly battered. All their Greek dishes are absolutely delicious. And their deserts are all homemade and delicious.

Great spot to take your family for great value food and a good variety of choices. Young kids to adults with food challenges all can be accommodated. Free parking and a warm environment is perfect for families.

Athens is still good. You can tell by the crowd that was there on a Tuesday nite that the place still has a following. The decor could use some sprucing up, they need to take away some of the clutter and get some new tables, but it's the good food that they are known for. Very Greek slanted, of course,... More

My husband and I decided to have lunch at the Athens Restaurant today. When we entered, the restaurant was busy, so we thought it must be pretty good. We were offered a table in the middle of the restaurant which would have placed a right in the waiter's walking area. We finally accepted a very small table in the back,... More

If you are not super into Greek food, or needing a special atmosphere... and you just want a big spacious place to eat, with lots of options and variety- then this place will please you. If you are looking for an authentic Greek restaurant with a Mediterranean vibe, then definitely go elsewhere. Food makes me feel like it was not... More

We have been coming here for years and always enjoy our dinner. Last time I had the lamb skewers and Greek salad . As usual it was really good. Nice size servings and it's a very comfortable restaurant.

Welcoming staff and delicious food. Dropped in at 5 on a Saturday. By 6, the place was packed! Hubby had Slovakia dinner and it was delicious, with large portions. I had the salmon special for 15.99. Delicious! It also included a fish chowder and rice pudding, or an upgrade to choice of cheesecake for 1.99. We shared the fresh cheesecake.... More

I found the food to be ok. Nothing great or out standing. I ordered the special pork wrapped in bacon and my husband ordered chicken and Greek salad. He hated his and we switched. My was better. Lol

The only reason why I'm giving 2 stars is because the waitress was polite! Food: I ordered the platter. Spanakopita very soggy. Couldn't eat it. Salad was old. Lamb was lukewarm. Rice had no taste. I wouldn't eat here again if food was free. Do yourself a favor, don't eat here. Don't waste your money.
