Athens Restaurant & Grill is located on James Island in the Athenian Village complex off Maybank Highway (which also houses Athens Cafe and Athens Pizza Express). Traditional Greek dishes are served in a breezy cafe setting. Try the chicken kabobs: marinated in olive oil, lemon, and Greek spices, the tender pieces are skewered with peppers, onions and tomatoes, and served up with rice and vegetables. Or go classic Greek and order the Moussaka or Pastitsio. For someplace more casual, head next door to Athens Pizza Express (open daily 11a-10p). They feature an abbreviated menu of Athens Restaurant & Grill, focusing on pizzas, Greek sandwiches and grinders. Finally, to curb that sweet tooth, pop into Athens Cafe for some cakes, pastries, ice cream, coffee, or smoothies.
