We came here before attending an event at the Verizon Center. I had the tzatziki as an appetizer, one order was enough for the table, delicious and garlicky. The spanakopita was not as flaky as I've had and could use a little more spinach but was still good. Everyone at the table seemed pleased with their dish. The service was... More

Arrived at Athens around 5:30pm after checking into the Radisson nearby. It was snowing and we were hungry after just breaking out of the Granite State Escape room, great place. We were a party of 7 and the only customers in the restaurant, which gave me pause but we were hungry so we stayed. Once at the table and our... More

The Athens is not a place for great atmosphere, but that is not why I go there. I go there for a nice quiet meal. It is comfortable and quiet and the food is great. The service is good and the staff is friendly. No nonsense, no loud music, just a great meals at a very reasonable price. You will... More

The portions were huge - we could barely finish half. The salad was nice and fresh and the rice and potatoes were good. However, my leg of lamb (although huge) was just ok - it was kind of dry.

Friend and I enjoyed lunch. My second time there. Food fine. Atmosphere has something missing. Not sure if it was food smell. I have no problem returning again. Server was fine.

I was hopeful when I stopped by for lunch. As others have mentioned the portions are huge but the food was below average. Stuffed grape leaves -- bland meat and cool in the center. Moussaka was over re-cooked with burnt cheese on top. Also very little eggplant and dried-out cream layer. Looked nothing like the photo on-line. Would not recommend... More

I stopped buy here for a quick bite for lunch, as a long time resident I have never been to this gem. This is authentic homemade cuisine at its best. I had one of the best tomato soups in my life, wanted a small sandwich but opted for meatball...very good!! Looking at menu there are some outstanding dinners and specials.... More

My mother, daughter and I had lunch here on a limited time frame on a work day. We were in and out quickly as it was very quiet (only 2 other parties were present). We enjoyed our meals, especially the spanikopita. The restaurant itself felt a bit outdated, but the service was pretty good.

Stopped in Manchester for the night and happened to notice Athens as we were walking from the hotel. Many different styles of lamb. Both the roasted and the grilled lamb were tasty although the grilled lamb was a bit tough. The vegetables were too much in quantity and just drenched in oil. A little too much in the way of...
