    Family run place. Where the brothers, who own it, remember your food preferences (love that!), always friendly, always serve my guilty pleasure- pitas with hummus - to every meal. Come for lunch too.

    This is by far the best Greek restaurant around, family run, they offer great pure food and are great people. If you want original Greek go here. Spiro and Teddy are the best host, love going there!💕

    They even sell genuine Greek oils and Greek kalamata olives. So pure not heavy like Italian oil or olives. What a great asset to dining out and taking a little Greek flavor home!

    Everything is good. Taking advantage of any specials is encouraged. The lightly fried pita chips are a treat.

    So much better than I thought it would be. The mussel special was amazing, the tilapia special great too. Service was excellent. Wish I hadn't waited so long to try Athena!

    Good Greek food at decent prices. The lamb shank is well worth it on a cold night.
