It was a little pricey, but with it tasting so good, i was happy to pay. Ordered the Steak and Lobster dinner with sweet potatoes - fantastic. Wife and daughter loved their meals. The wait was long, but as I have said before, a longer wait typically means great food. people do not want to leave and more want in.

Live band the night we were there, real nice guys. My daughter requested 'You are my sunshine' and they played it for her.

I love Lauderdale by the Sea and this place embodies why I love it there so much. Great location: right on the beach with a deck (must sit outside), in the center of all the activity. Definitely recommended and will be going back!

4 of us had dinner this evening at Athena. We had drinks, appetizers and main courses. My brother in law ordered a chicken kabob with rice. He ate a piece of chicken and some rice and said it had no flavor. Explained to the waitress that he really was not enjoying his meal as it had no flavor. She brought over salad dressing! He said he really didn't want salad dressing on his food and didn't want it. She took it away not asking if he would like something else. The rest of our meals we ok. When finished she asked if we wanted dessert and we didn't. Got the bill and the kabob was on the bill. We told the waitress that we should not be charged for something that was not eaten. She said you ate 3/4 of it and you have to pay for it! He had only ate 1 bite! Called over the manager and she said you have to pay for 1/2 of the kabob. WHAT?? ..What restaurant operates like this??.they finally took it off the bill after a much heated discussion.

I had the baked shrimp, my husband had the salmon. We loved our meals, it was very tasty. We shared the greek salad, it was very very good. Loved sitting outside, lots of action around, good for people watching. Will go back.

We stopped by on Saturday after a few drinks & had a great time dancing with the locals. A few days later we decided to go back because I was craving a Greek salad. Even though it was early, the server said we could order whatever we wished & we weren't restricted to their breakfast selections. The food was really delicious. The complimentary hummus was accompanied by warm pita bread. The dolmades were pretty typical, but the Athena salad was especially yummy.

The only downside was walking by the staff smoking to get inside the restaurant. Smoke if you will, but staff should have another designated place to do so.
