Been here numerous times and never disappointed! Large menu with lots of choices, so every time coming here I have tried something different. The food is always fresh and is the most authentic Greek food you will find around. Servers are always friendly and knowledgable on all the menu items, which helps when deciding what to order. Best place around... More

Food was amazing and most things i have never heard of but yet all of them sounded great and mine was great. Small restaurant with live music Tuesday nights truly a hidden jewel.

The grilled octopus was absolutely perfect and delicious. The Mousaka was very well done as well. A definite must try if you are in the area.

Eight of us went for dinner and enjoyed sharing the sample appetizer plate and several other small dishes. Their entree selections pleased the vegetarians and carnivores alike. Service despite our big group was very good and we thoroughly enjoyed the live music. Their ice cream is a nice way to end a big meal.

Everything was top notch. I will definitely be visiting again next time I'm in WS! Our waitress was knowledgeable and very nice, and the food was delicious and reasonably priced.

I've been to many Greek restaurants and without a doubt Athena is up there with the best of them. The side salad given with an entree is one of the largest and tastiest. Entrees were cooked to perfection and served hot. The only drawback I can mention is that the quantity of food is overwhelming. The atmosphere and service is... More

Greeted promptly by friendly hostess who made several recommendations as this was my first visit to a Greek restaurant. Had Spinakata (probably spelled wrong) which was good. I ordered the small chicken skewer with lemon potatoes. The chicken was delicious. I am glad I got the small because my friend got the large chicken skewer and it was A LOT... More

I was looking for a meal on the go and of course I had to go with a classic Mediterranean style taco, the gyro. The lamb was roasted to perfection. The meat was flawlessly shaved, the onions were strong (just how I like it) and the tzatziki was AMAZING! I've went to Greece for my honeymoon and I was happy... More

Fresh greek food, fair priced, fast. Gyros platter is good. Large portions! Not too impressive interior. Doesn't look like much from the outside, not from the inside either actually, but food is good. A little low cleanliness rating, but was fine. You pay at cash register at the front of the restaurant.
