The new owners have turned this wonderful Bristol icon into the worst place in town. We sat down and were presented with the classic menu from Athens...a less formal, laminated version...no comment was made as to what was available and what was not. When questioned...More

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.
