Foursquare Tips

  • Check out their new Chill-Rite system, stretching down the length of the outer bar ensuring draft beer is kept at a constant 32 degrees.
  • The best Greek Food in Fort Lauderdale. This is one of our favorite restaurants from when I lived here. We always plan a visit when in the area. The remodel is gorgeous! A true oceanside cafe.
  • The redesigned Athena is gorgeous with its new sliding windows bringing in some much needed light. Food was tasty and well-portioned, and the service was impeccable. Great fresh-squeezed OJ. Nom. 4/5.
  • The food was incredibly delicious and ill def go back! The saganaki was incredible!! Place was very uplifting and enjoyable i give it 5 stars!
  • Good spot for breakfast, or some simply prepared seafood dishes. (like sauteed squid with lemon.) Music & bellydancing Friday & Saturday nights starting at 9.
  • Melon Margarita. ..Yum!
  • Not the best for drinks. Ordered martini w a twist. Came with olives, lemon, and lemon seeds on the bottom. Saw server eating olives w her bare hands out of the bartenders drink bin (ie olives, limes)
  • Overpriced and underwhelming. Had better Greek food at a hole-in-the-wall take-out place 20 ft down the street.
  • Do not eat here. A degrading facade of a poor restaurant surviving only on its location not its food. Seriously, the gyro meat was processed pre-formed crap. Get a street gyro, 5x good at 1/3 price
  • The gyro platter is great.
  • Live music on the street on saturday night, starts at 6.
  • When you dine here order the saganaki as an appetizer. Then order anything on the menu because it's all superb!
  • Happy hour 4-7, Greek food
  • The liver and onions are amazing. They are usually only on the dinner menu but if you ask for them at lunch they will make them for you.
  • Love my Hercules breakfast!
  • Need I say more?
  • The place is nice but if you want to eat really good Greek food go to Greek Island Restaurant.
  • Place went down hill faster than a skier at the Sochi Olympics. The food is so under whelming and bland. Grey goose vodka tasted like it came from a bottle of night train. Surly staff too stay away!
  • Awesome food with some authentic Greek dishes.
  • Amazing Greek food! Loved it, esp the hummus and the scallops!
