I have been a patron of this restaurant the last four years and have always had an excellent experience. The food, wine, service have always been of the highest order. The owner is a gracious host and exhibits perfect hospitality. Prices are very reasonable, the food prepared fresh, the wine delicious. I recommend the Greek chicken or the veal parmigiana... More

11 patrons in our group. I ordered shrimp parmigiana. It came out with Alfredo sauce on it. Nice waiter took it back and within one minute he brought back rinsed shrimp with canned sauce and sprinkled cheese which was microwaved. Never ate it. The worst. I was charged 16.99 and told the waiter after bill was paid with 18 percent... More

I was greeted by a Greek gentleman, who I believe was the owner. We spoke Greek, and it was nice for him to be welcoming. My father was born in Greece. I ordered the Pastichio. It was flavorful, The salad was fresh. The bread was homemade. I also had a glass of the Greek wine. It is a good sized... More

We moved to the neighborhood that Athens serves, and had high hopes...... the food was terrible. That's really all I can say. It was not good, it was not clean, it was just a huge disappointment.

Instead of thanking them I feel like apologizing for bringing them here. overpriced and angry I am still sitting at the table while I'm writing this review.... More

Last night we dined at athens for the first time since purchasing a home in Johns Island, SC. We passed it many times while moving personal effects from our prior home in Mt Pleasant. We were hesitant about stopping in. Having lived in NY where authentic Greek restaurants are numerous, we found it hard to accept there being one in... More

Everything we ordered was magnificent. I got the leg of lamb and my wife got the gyro platter. They both came with salads, which featured their delicious house dressing. Our waiter was friendly and very helpful with our gluten sensitivities. A+
