The place is in need of a good cleaning. Cobwebs in the corners dirt on the rails. I don't think the carpet has ever been cleaned. Service was poor and the place was not busy at all. If the restaurant is that dirty what is the kitchen like. How can they remain open? They should close and do a renovation... More

We went here after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor - but our expectations were not met. The restaurant itself is quite charming. We tried both the soups which were good and well seasoned, so we were of to a good start. The so called Greek salad as a side however was not very Greek - just one vedge of tomato,... More

Located across from the National Park visitor's center. The food was very good; service was excellent and prices were very reasonable. We were there for lunch.

Ordered appetizers and waited a very long time, the pita bread tasted store brought and was cold. Order gyros and again the pita was cold and the... More

This place has consistently had good food for as many years as I can remember. You can never go wrong eating here -- very good quality Greek food. Not gourmet or upscale, has an average taverna style atmosphere, the carpet could use a good cleaning or changed, but the food and service are always top quality. Have dined here many... More

We were in Lowell looking for lunch and ended up at the Athenian Corner Restaurant - baked lamb looked good, but I had the chicken kabob - remarkably good!

A Greek staple in the heart of Lowell. We have been to the Athenian Corner many times over the years, most recently in May 2016. The food is always consistent and the service is very good. The Baked Lamb is always a good choice, very tender and a generous portion. For appetizers the Stuffed Grape Leaves or Sampler are also... More

I've eaten here about a half-dozen times when I've visited Lowell. I even had Easter dinner here with family a few years ago. The food is really good, especially the lamb, the lemon soup, the salad, all the side dishes, the desserts, and even the bread. Prices are good, portions are huge, and service is good, although it can be... More

Easter Sunday we had our family dinner at Athenian Corner. Most of the party are Greek so lamb and grape leaves were the choice for many. The surprise hit of the day was a Greek style lasagna, Pastitsio, what a delicious treat, the cheese was so creamy.. I always have ordered the baked lamb, on Greek Easter, I am ordering... More
