I have eaten here regularly for over 30 years and it never disappoints me. The best breakfast in southeast Ohio and excellent quality ingredients. Prices are family friendly, student friendly, and welcoming! Wait can be long for a table or food if they're really busy,...More

Great food! What a selection! My fave, the mac & cheese and the enchiladas, but everything was delectable - all offerings are locally sourced, fresh, organic, and thoughtfully prepared. The bar area is upbeat & spirited, but a family with kids would be comfortable there...More

Casa is a cool restaurant that you must visit if you're in Athens, Ohio. The staff own the restaurant. They change roles each week so they contribute to all areas. They don't accept tips - or donate any addition money left to charity. They make...More

Casa has it down: great food, made using locally-sourced ingredients, friendly, hardworking staff, excellent drinks and quick bites at the Bodega, and awesome events like open mic, art openings, bands, etc. It's perfect for couples, families, large groups, business and pleasure. I love the quesadillas...More
