best kept secret, great greek food, Mama is a gem!
We didn't discover this spot until 2010, but try to go there once a month for - and I WILL spell this wrong - the Souvlaki platter. It's a great bargain and really delicious.

As this is the only Greek restaurant in Beaufort, SC; I guess it's the best in town. That being said, however, the food was average and unimpressive. The ambiance is tired, bland, and similarly uninspiring. The service, however, was eccentric, rude, and unfriendly. There are much better Greek restaurants...if one is willing to drive to Charleston.

Athenian Gardens is a little hidden gem that sits right across the street from the Beaufort Memorial Hospital. It's been a popular place for locals for several years, and I finally had the opportunity to try it out for the first time.

The food is outstanding - try the souvlaki platter, which came a side item (rice or fries) and a salad (Green or green). The restaurant's ambiance gets okay marks, but its the sheer smell of the place which makes it truly enticing. When service finally came (it was lacking for a while), it was quite good.

All in all, a good place to dine in Beaufort if you're in the mood for ethnic fare.

We ate here on April 19, 2011 after another place with good reviews in Beaufort(Nippy's) was closed. So glad we followed the reviews on here, they were right on about Athenian Gardens! We went about 6:30, so parking wasn't a problem. It's a nice little family restaurant, and Stefan was incredibly nice(The entire staff was nice and friendly.) Stefan explained the menu and the specials for the night, and told us that his mama uses all her own recipes. We tried the hummus for an appetizer. It was a little small, but very good(I believe it's actually made with roasted red peppers too?) It's actually good that it's small, since we stuffed ourselves on the rest of the meal. I had the chicken kebob platter, and my boyfriend had the meat pie(Both were specials that night) The food was sooo good, and the pita was really good and fresh. I loved the roasted potatoes that came with mine, and the greek salad was good too. The meat pie was yummy, and I'm not normally someone that would like something like that. However, I asked the boyfriend for many bites! ;) We were surprised when Stefan brought us a complimentary piece of baklava to end our meal. While we were already stuffed, we still devoured the baklava! It was a nice and delicious way to end a great meal! Thanks to the other reviewers and to Stefan and Maria, we found a great restraurant on our vacation to the Beaufort area!!
