I was excited to try Athena because I love Greek food, but I have little positive to say about my experience here last night. An outstanding Aerosmith tribute band was playing right outside, so waiting 5 minutes to be greeted at the door was not so bad, and at least we were entertained during the 45 minutes (no joke) we...

Food was good. Never once were we asked by staff if we needed anything. Had to flag down server for refills and check. Would not recommend or return.

The perfect place for drinks and for just looking at people passing by located in the centre of Lauderdale by the sea. Great Gin & Tonic.

Not as great as it once was. Authentic Greek Food is what you will find here, however, it's changed over the years. Now it's just an average restaurant, however, it appears it's more in competition with the local corner bars, then keeping the quaint, authentic, charming restaurant it once was. Put your Bouzouki Music back on, and let your patrons... More

Good food at reasonable prices considering its location. I enjoyed the chicken souvlaki, hummus, and fresh Greek salad. But what really took the "cake" was the baklava cheesecake. I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't overly sweet or soaked in syrup. Our server, Mira, was a joy and most accommodating. Left there happy and satisfied!

This is a taste of Mediterranean food! Their portions are very big. We sat on a table on the side walk and is was great to people watch and enjoy the food. Our waitress was excellent! Our glasses were never empty, her recommendations were on the spot, and definitely brought that Mediterranean care to our table. We went at 6... More

As someone who loves Greek food and eats it frequently (I also cook Greek food), I was surprised with the quality of my meal. Perhaps it was just that one meal (and I did have lamb), but it lacked freshness and was a bit bland. I've had appetizers at the restaurant which have been tasty as well as deserts. My... More

Visited the place with my family for drinks, appetizers, salads, sandwiches and burgers. The calamari is one of the best I've ever had. Everything we ordered was fresh and delicious and the prices are very reasonable. The server was very courteous and attentive.
