We've lunched at The Athenian Gardens for many years. The food is consistently excellent ... and fresh ... and service is fast and friendly. Stefan and his mother do an amazing job and it shows. Their gyro sandwich and platter are the gold standard against which we judge others. And Mama Maria makes moussaka to die for.
Check out the handwritten Specials board (in addition to the printed menu) to see what's in the kitchen today.
Advice: Parking is at a premium (it's directly across from the hospital) so be prepared to park nearby if no spaces are open in the restaurant's small lot. Also, when it gets super-busy with order-in and takeout requests, Stefan has been known to shut the door for a while until they are able to catch up. It's a small business, with maybe 15 tables total.

We heard a lot about this place and we were not disappointed. The Greek salad with chicken kabobs was very tender and had great flavor. The salad was served with the warm homemade pita bread...very tasty. The veggie gyro was delicious. I can't wait to go back!

No pomp and circumstance just amazing and authentic Greek food prepared and presented by Stephan and Mom!! I love those two - feels like I am back at home in New York!! Everything I have ever tried has been amazing - my favs: Avgolemono soup, Greek Salad with Gyro (extra tzaziki please), Eggplant Parmesan and of course the Baklava...so many more dishes to choose from on the menu and daily specials!! You can't beat this Mom and son duo - they're the real deal and we are so LUCKY they chose Beaufort!!

We had lunch at the Athenian Gardens and it was a very nice experience. The food was beyond just Greek lunch food. Mom was literally in the kitchen.
The Fallafel was fresh, crisp and flavorful. I had a Hero ( weak spot for me) the meat was tasty, not over spiced and not grainy, nice tomato slices, some onion and lettuce on a warm bread. My companion had a chicken kabob pita sandwich, nicely cooked chicken, not dried out and a nice tadziki (sic) sauce.
The son handles the dining room and is fun to talk to and does a great job making you feel comfortable and at home.
