About Us

Welcome to Athens, a family owned restaurant since 1980. The ancient Athenians have been referred to as “Shopkeepers of Genius.” It is our sincere hope that a restaurant named for this magnificent city, renowned in history for its beauty and culture, can foster a new appreciation for one area of that culture-namely Greek cuisine-among Greeks and Americans alike.

As naturalized United States citizens, we have a profound appreciation for the American Dream. We strongly believe that hard work, faith, and above all, family, can make a difference.

At Athens, our mission is to provide you with a family atmosphere, complete with good food, service, reasonable prices and unequaled quality.
Although traditional dishes are our mainstays, we are setting the pace with new Heart Healthy-style dishes. By blending tradition with innovation, we stress the use of pure virgin olive oil in each of our dishes, thus cutting your cholesterol intake, and reducing the risk of heart disease.

Thank you for being our friends, and making this family-owned restaurant such a success!

Kali Orexi!
