This little out of the way restaurant is tucked into the corner of a shopping center on Keswick Avenue. It has outdoor seating in warmer months, and serves very good Greek cuisine. All the standards are available.

My wife and I were attending a concert at the Keswick Theater (Dec. 9 2016) - David Crosby & Friends. Who, by the way, were AMAZING! Voices of angels and great musicians. Ugh, I digress. There is not a large variety of restaurants near the theater, so we went to Athena. Let me just say, the best aspect of this... More

I and my wife had a wonderful meal here Saturday night. The Restaurant is well appointed and in very good condition throughout. The service is attentive, not overbearing, (Nor are any of the wait staff trying to be my best friend) I had the Lamb Chops, which came with a house salad and pita bread at no extra charge. The...

We were running a little late for show at Keswick. Only had an hour. Waiter very clear on what we probably could get prior to show. We ordered apps, soup and salad. Food out and eaten in 50 minutes. Everything we had was great. Above average meal, average decor, nice staff.

Every so often I want Dolmadies (stuffed grape leaves). The best and most tasty ones are at the Athena Restaurant in Glenside, PA. It is an authentic Greek restaurant. My husband and I have eaten there many times, but always order the Dolmadies to go. It comes with delicious pita bread and tzatkiki dip. We usually get a double order... More

I'm not complaining, I can always get a table. Good is really good and it is a BYOB. Wonder why it it's not packed all the time. The hummus appetizer plate is great. Love the kebabs and the grilled chicken. Whole grilled fish is always a treat!! Staff extremely nice.

We were not disappointed with our traditional Greek dinner before a concert at the Keswick. The food down to the pita bread is home style and freshly cooked. We liked the flavorful appetizers, some very spicy, some milder in flavor. The chicken, fish, gyros, and lamb were very good. We were surprised to be offered filet strips as an alternative... More

Really good Greek food. Although I had my heart (stomach?) set on moussaka, I was a bit disappointed that it wasn't available on the rather limited lunch menu. However I was very happy with the gyro -- messy though it was -- and the kafteri appetizer was excellent, particularly with their great pita bread.

A long time local favorite directly across from the Keswick Theatre. The service is good with a friendly staff in a facility that is looking and feeling like it needs to be renovated/updated/painted. The food we found to be mostly good. The Mousaka is excellent as is the Combination Plate. The prices are modest for good preparation and a substantial... More

Not sure what happened, but this place used to serve good Greek food. Now, over cooked meat, soggy vegetables, bland avegalleno soup, and poor service. We came early for dinner, so no reason for the service to be so bad and the food to be so over-cooked. Skip Athena.
