Great Greek place! mostly Greek food but offers other options for people who may not want lamb chops, gyro's, cheese and such. Food was very good, service was a little slow, but they were busy.

Stopped here for lunch with other couples. I ordered the gyro plate and salad. The gyro meat was pre packaged and tasted terrible. Another person in our party ordered the Greek chicken. It was more like ordering a pigeon! The size was extremely small compared...More

Prepare yourself for a new low in poor quality food preparation and service. Athena By The Sea is fancy name that totally misrepresents itself and misdirects patrons. It is NOT on the water and it is a low grade rip off operation that serves reheated...More

Located on the corner of A1A & Commercial in the middle of the Town Center. Food is very well prepared and not as pricey as Greek Restaurants further South on A1A. Lamb Chops excellent and done to perfection.

Very disappointed in the gyros. Appeared to be prepackaged and microwaved. Not carved off a spit. Good happy hour. Nice Manhattan for 5.00. Best thing on the menu was the humus.

Went to order scallops and they didn't have it so we both ended up ordering the kabobs. While waiting for dinner, they brought out the hummus and, oh, so, so good. Kabobs were juicy and flavorful. Service good, friendly staff. Would definitely recommend!

We had Fried Zucchini Strips which were done perfectly and served with a Tatziki sauce which wasn't as good as traditional. We also had the Athena Pizza Salad. This is a pizza crust covered w/Parmesan cheese and baked. Once baked a tossed salad is put...More
