“It was my first time here and it was so delicious. And the people were very nice. My Fiance ordered two pho’s (beef and vegetarian for me, I’m not vegetarian anymore but I loved the flavor more than the beef), hot Cheetos corn dog, peach orange tea, and a pork bahn mi. Everything was so delicious. The only thing my husband critiqued is the size of the pho. He’s used to bigger portions and he didn’t get as full as I did. I ate the leftovers of the bahn mi the next morning and it is still very delicious. Loved it here! I was so excited about the food I didn’t get a chance to take pictures.”

“It has been awhile since we have visited Olive Garden, and I am excited to share this 5 Star review of the Olive Garden in Athens, GA. We chose the restaurant because of their ability to seat out large party of 11, celebrating my Grandson's high school graduation.The hostess station was welcoming and a table was prepared for us with very little wait.Our Server was an absolute delight, from beginning to end. She was efficient, friendly and attentive. She checked on our beverages frequently and served the meal with pride.The famous family-style salad was fresh and crisp (and plentiful), bread sticks warm and "never-ending".Each person's entree was beautifully plated, and, while I love the lasagna as always, my daughter's salmon was especially note-worthy and cooked to perfection.Before we left, the Manager stopped by the table to be sure that we had enjoyed our evening, and we all affirmed that we did, and we will plan to return in the future!”

Cheba Hut "Toasted" Subs 135 W Washington St, Athens Sandwich Shop • $

“The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is because I’m a bit salty they don’t have homemade fries. Now let’s talk about the subs. Chicken is jam packed with flavor, the bread stays toasted fresh never soggy & there is options (white, garlic & wheat), open late plus they have a bar and they make treats fresh daily (rice crispy, cereal bars/balls & cookies). We ate dine-in & grabbed an alcoholic bev. The decor is laid back surfer tiki vibes, bright and colorful.

Vegetarian options: They have a whole selection for vegetarians and a wide variation of toppings to turn most subs veggie based.”

“I love Terrapin beer (had on tap locally!) and was so happy to stop in the actual brewery while I was in Athens for work. The beer was great and the special they had on Wednesday night was AWESOME! My only complaint was the lack of restrooms! I'm sure I'm not the only person who needs the toilet a little more when I'm drinking, so the only option being dark porta-potties was very disappointing. It was cold, dark, and trying to maneuver my cell phone flash light just to go #1 was pretty sketch! I look forward to visiting again when you guys have functional indoor plumbing!”

“It’s easy to forget about the not-downtown restaurants in Athens, but my meal here was as good as anything I’ve had in town. The service (all students) was impeccable and prices are surprisingly reasonable. I had the crispy Brussels sprouts and the salmon entree with Gouda risotto, peas, and mushrooms. Everything was SO delicious and served beautifully. You don’t need to be a guest in the Georgia Center hotel to check this place out!”

I've been going here since I discovered it while pregnant and was visiting the hospital weekly for check ups and now I take my little one to pick out his own - he is 5 and loves the strawberry basil and grapefruit juices! I love Yodalicious and the Green Zinger, but am always down to try something new because all of their flavors are delicious. Definitely worth a stop in!”

“Absolutely GREAT! We come here all the time everyone is nice, but this past Saturday May 4th. The decision to go to Korean bbq was random. So we were super underdressed and we literally looked terrible lol usually when we go anywhere like that people treat us poorly, but luckily our server didn’t care about that. Graham was SO SWEET and he was BEYOND AMAZING! He was so nice, attentive and fast. He was so nice to my toddler. We need more servers like him! ?⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️”
