Athenian Garden Opens a New Location on 4th Street

The St. Petersburg family-owned business has locations near the Tyrone mall and in Largo. It is now also open for business at 2220 4th St. North.

Since 1977, Athenian Garden has been serving up delicious Greek cuisine to St. Pete residents. The motto "Where Everything is Home Made" has earned a favorite spot in the hearts of locals. A new location opened on Oct. 14 in the Old Northeast, following longtime spots near the Tyrone Square Mall in west St. Petersburg and in Largo.

The menu boasts many Greek standards, from Gyros, to flaming Saganaki, to Moussaka. It also offers some unusual specialties, like sauteed octupus and stuffed grape leaves. With a section of the menu dedicated to "no meat," vegetarians can also get their fill. Meat lovers, have no fear: There's plenty of sausage, lamb and chicken to go around. Also popular are the homemade desserts, which include a couple varieties of Baklava and homemade cakes and pastries.

Athenian Garden is open for lunch and dinner, while also taking on catering orders. Hours of operation are from 11 a.m.- 10 p.m.

Check back with Patch, as we plan a Business Q&A with the owners.

I wish them all the best, they deserve it. We carried out today for some co-workers at All Children's, found people fighting for a table. The food is as good as ever and the reasonable prices and clean, friendly service complete the good experience. Fourth Street is going through yet another culinary evolution and it's very exciting to watch.

Tried this location for the first time yesterday. The lentil soup tasted as though it was watered down. No robust flavor like the Tyrone restaurant. The Greek salad seemed to be excessively salty which could be caused by the Feta cheese. Also, they served rolls instead of bread which is different from the other locations. We will probably go across town to the Tyrone place because we've never been disappointed there.

This location is not good for the Athenian Garden name. The food seems thrown together, and it is not of as high of a quality as it used to be.. Our office used to do take out until they messed up the order for the fourth time. Service is not good- they don't seem to want to fix the problelm when there is one. Stick to the Tyrone location.
