Food is good, not excellent, just good. Maybe I am picky with Greek food because I visited Greece many times. Belly dancer is very entertaining.

We had lunch there and the salads were excellent. Large portion and full of cheese and additions that were fresh and delicious. Server was excellent but there was no one there at the time.

A must destination. Get a sampling of as much as you can. Service is wonderful. They treat you like family. Have been to Greece 37 times. Now we can save the airfare.

I was excited to try Athena because I love Greek food, but I have little positive to say about my experience here last night. An outstanding Aerosmith tribute band was playing right outside, so waiting 5 minutes to be greeted at the door was not so bad, and at least we were entertained during the 45 minutes (no joke) we...

Food was good. Never once were we asked by staff if we needed anything. Had to flag down server for refills and check. Would not recommend or return.

The perfect place for drinks and for just looking at people passing by located in the centre of Lauderdale by the sea. Great Gin & Tonic.

Not as great as it once was. Authentic Greek Food is what you will find here, however, it's changed over the years. Now it's just an average restaurant, however, it appears it's more in competition with the local corner bars, then keeping the quaint, authentic, charming restaurant it once was. Put your Bouzouki Music back on, and let your patrons... More
