We love Atheneans. The service is great. They are friendly and always have a smile on their faces. The food is excellent. You get a good size portion for a reasonable price. It's a clean and comfortable great family restaurant. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone.

Having traveled to the Greek islands a couple of times, there are days when I just need a gyro to take me back. Athenians has excellent authentic Greek food and, yes, the Gyros are worth the trip alone.

A happy accident of location brought us to this restaurant on a Friday night. We seated ourselves in the bar area, and had pizza, wine and beer. The pizza was great! Mushroom, Onion, ans Spinach - all toppings in a quantity that would be considered "extra" at most pizzerias. Vert nice crust consistency and flavor. Wine was very reasonably priced... More

Ordered lasagna to go..it came with salad and bread! It was ready quickly and it was hot. The portion was a good,healthy size, the tomato sauce was rich and flavorful, lots of meat and ricotta layered in. The salad was crisp and the bread garlicky. Would definitely order here again!

We love this restaurant and go there a couple of times per month. We like the variety of choices depending on how hungry we are that day and what we are in the mood for at any given time.

We've never had a bad meal! We went here for dinner after my daughters basketball game. On this night, there was one other family dining. It was about 10-12 minutes before our waitress came to get us drinks. She apologized and seemed to be nervous! She explained that she thought the other waitress had our table...mind you, there was only... More

Pizza is slightly better than chain pizza stores. Atmosphere is no nonsense and a "we are here for the food not the floor show" attitude. Menu is american fare, pizza, subs, pasta and steaks. They also offer greek-ish food and fried seafood offering. Can be overwhelmingly busy as this is a popular spot in culpeper from 5-8pm rush. A solid... More

Prime Rib is what I consider a simple food but not that simple to make. It's only offered as a special and we ate on a Saturday night. Unlike chain restaurants the meat had been seasoned and cooked to perfection. We heard a rumor the owner used to run a steak place in Winchester and after begging by customers her... More
