First time we had been here in years. In-laws love to come here, don't know why?! When we got there we were the only table then another couple came in. One waitress and she was struggling to say the least. The salads were good and large for a dinner salad. The lemon soup was good but cold. The rolls were... More

Sad, the rib eyes were awful, my husbands was very fatty and gristly, mine was thin and tough. Dining area closed, so everything served in the bar, which is ok, I guess, if the food was good. The salads were good. The rest of the food not worth mentioning. The bill, however was, $60! Also in bad area....

The new owners have ruined this Steakhouse. The filet was awful and full of fat. Sides were cold. No credit card machine. Hello? Who caries cash anymore??? This place should do everyone a favor and close their doors. Do NOT go to this place ever!

I wanted to like this place but it wasn't to be. I went at 6pm and was the only customer for the hour I was there. First it is located in a sketchy area with warehouses and cheap apts. The parking lot and entrance is in back of the building. Not an area of town to go late at night.... More

Dinner for a party 5 was awesome. We ate in the bar area which is a great new change to the offerings.

We have been going to Athens Steakhouse for years. We loved Miss Betty and her whole family. But the new owners have failed miserably. It has went from the best steak in the Tri-Cities to a karaoke bar.

I stop in Athens occasionally so I want to take a minute to give an opinion. I found the food to be top notch, I've had the burger, filet and chicken wings they have been prepared to perfection each time. The staff is very friendly and outgoing atmosphere is inviting and the owner well what I've talked to him seems... More
