Review №1

This is a must try restaurant when in Myrtle Beach. Without a doubt, the best Filipino meal. Amazing flavors, prepared authenticity.

Review №2

It has great food and love you can get red horse beer! Almost taste like my mother in laws cooking who is Filipino!!

Review №3

Excellent cuisine and flavor. Extremely nice ownership and staff - worth a try if you're on the fence about something new.

Review №4

We had a terrific experience! The service was excellent and the food was SO good. They have variety on the menu so if you have someone in your party that is not into Philipino food, it still works! The place could use a little updating but it certainly won't keep my family from returning!

Review №5

Such a clean and fresh place to get homemade filipino and american food. The owner Athena is hands on and excellent servicr

Review №6

Definitely a new favorite!! Will be frequently dining at Athena's. You must try the pork adobo, it was amazing!!

Review №7

Absolutely love this place! I went last year with my boyfriend. The pancit and Lumpia was made fresh! We plan on going back very soon! I give it 10 stars!

Review №8

We eat here every year when we come to myrtle beach. The husband works the front cool guy and the wife is the chef and her adobo is absolutely awesome i cant leave till ive had my fix!

Review №9

Delicious food at a reasonable price. A local favorite.

Review №10

It was clean on the inside and they offered the best hospitality from any restaurant during our visit. The food was awesome and authentic with a great price!

Review №11

I love their lumpia and adobo .. their whole Filipino food menu is pretty great. This place is very relaxed.. old decor.. dark lighting but food is good.v

Review №12

Great and friendly service, laid back atmosphere. Amazing food! Would love to come back sometime soon.

Review №13

This restaurant is my favored. I eat in plenty of restaurants but to this one I constantly return again and again. The stuff is very attentive and the cuisine they serve is so tasty. I never decline to have a good dinner here. I recommend this place with pleasure.

Review №14

It was ok, I guess we went on the wrong night. We got there all the others saw 3 black women come in one said oh here's the party they finished their drinks and left. We asked for ranch dressing and got the wrong dressing with our wings, but we didn't complain. Maybe we'll try again another time. The staff didn't smile and weren't friendly. Learn to run a business. It's called a business because you deal with all kinds of people. My advice is to learn to deal with the public no matter what nationality we are. Better luck next time on 5 stars.

Review №15

Food is super good .Service sucksBut food makes up worth the wait .If you have some patience go . I think they just open they are getting the hang of it lol

Review №16

Lumpia (beef and vegetable), pork adobo, pancit bihon w. chicken, pancit palabok w. beef. Delicious flavors and textures. Don't wait. Eat here. That is all.

Review №17

Review №18

Review №19

Fast friendly service! Good food! Late night!

Review №20

Excellent Filipino food and friendly staff. The sweet chili sauce on the crispy fish was so delicious.

Review №21

Awesome... the owner Athena is a sweet person and makes you feel very welcomed. Her prices are great and her eggrolls are so good

Review №22

The food was good. It was not busy at the time so it was quiet.

Review №23

The staff was friendly. The food was authentic Filipino food.

Review №24

Love this place never any drama

Review №25

Best place to eat Filipino food while in Myrtle Beach.

Review №26

Mmm amazing food! We ordered all Filipino plates and it brought me back to my childhood! Every one else loves it too!!!!! Would definitely recommend this place. Amazing service as well!

Review №27

Don't let the look (or smell) of this place deceive you. Great, authentic Filipino food, great service, and good imported beverage selection. Athena's is worth checking out while in Myrtle Beach.

Review №28

The food was authentic and AMAZING!!! This is a local gem. It's small but great. Outdoor seating available, bar, karaoke, and pool tables. Great for families or just hanging out.

Review №29

Had the Adobe pork and spring rolls very enjoyable will be back. Service was fantastico also.

Review №30

Nice atmosphere, did not order any food. Live DJ, mupspic to loud for my 60 year old ears.

Review №31

Loved it. They had my husband's choice of beer that most places don't have. The have outdoor seating, karaoke and awesome food.

Review №32

Love that I found a place that has great lumpia

Review №33

Good food, I love how they cook the Adobo on the light side and not too much soy sauce it's yummy! The owners are very nice and hard working people, just be patient with the waiting time it's all worth it for the fresh food:) Great experience!

Review №34

Really good food, fast, and nice people behind the counter. I'd recommend looking at the Altheas ultimate on the menu.

Review №35

A must try for unique and flavorful dishes. Lumpia were awesome. The Adobo was out of this world. The owners are very personable and accomodating. If you're unsure what to get, they provide recommendations to suit a variety of tastes. For those that are less adventurous, there is a wide variety of standard American style fare as well. Definitely a place where there's something for everyone. Looking forward to eating my way through the menu.

Review №36

Amazing food! The owner is super sweet and friendly. Locals were very friendly. Only downside is that they allow smoking here. Will definitely return the next time I'm in town!

Review №37

Walked in on a slow night for the holiday very skeptical at first because it was empty however natives were the only ones eating. (So that was a positive. The owner waited on us and he put in service with Mcculough the food is even better. When you first walk in it's not much to look at but you can tell the owner has pride in his extent. If you're looking for some good Filipino food in the Myrtle Beach area I will most definitely check this place out.

Review №38

Great music great deals perfect atmosphere .

Review №39

Server was aggresive and confrontational when we decided not to eat there, due to the terrible menu. One other family was eating there and i feel bad for them. Beer bottles laying around on patio and just plain dirty. No wonder it was the only empty dinner when all others were PACKED.

Review №40

B-day celebrate! Happy Birthday again DJ Blak-a-tak! The turnup was real family!

Review №41

Came here for Dinner looking for Aunthentic Filipino cuisine.Not many choices but the food was good unlike their cocktails which was very disappointing.

Review №42

Great place but I didn't see this nice deck when I was there???

Review №43

We were looking for a Filipino restaurant while on vacation. Given the great reviews, we didn't even think twice to visit it. When we pulled up, we weren't even sure if it was open for business. There was another family dining in when we got there. The place was dark and not very inviting. Less than half of the menu was considered Filipino. Not a lot to choose from if that's what you came here for. Finally, I settled for one of the most popular, basic Filipino dish, nilaga, only to be told that they don't have it. We quickly left the place and ended up going to a Pho (Viet) place for some rice and "ulam". This review is mostly first impression as we didn't get to try any dish. Pretty disappointed.

Review №44

Great food, vibes, and friendly service.

Review №45

Awesome bar. $2 can beer and shots. Super nice bartender (probably the owner). Food is really good as well. My favorite place ive been in Myrtle so far.

Review №46

Delish chicken pancit and they have San Mig. No complaints on the service. My husband had the quesadilla, which he said was excellent.

Review №47

Great place for authentic Filipino dishes. Filipino food stems from its multicultural influences. Its savory, sweet, and sometimes sour. If you have lived in Hawaii, some of these dishes would be familiar to you.This is not a fast food restaurant as the dishes takes a few minutes to prepare. The owner is very sweet, hospitable and accommodating.If you have questions on what to try, ask the owner. She'll be happy to steer you in the right direction.

Review №48

Small little joint with yummy authentic Filipino food as well as an American menu for the less adventurous palette. The kids (teenagers) enjoyed playing pool while the hunby drank his alcoholic beverages. A nice place for the whole family!

Review №49

I was looking for food, but the kitchen was closed--that was our fault. The DJ was doing a great job, though!

Review №50

Good custumer service. Good food

Review №51

Amazing food. Great people . I highly recommend trying it out.

Review №52

Excellent food, very good service. Only two people when we were there, but they were very attentive. If you have time and adventure eat here.

Review №53

Good local late night bar

Review №54

Good spot for the grown and mature. The Dj's be on point with the best R&B. Drinks are reasonable. I haven't tried food yet!

Review №55

Very quiet as it is in many places in Myrtle Beach this time of the year. The place is clean, food is always good and Athena is always gracious!

Review №56

The food was amazingly good. The place is clean and stylish inside. Prices are ok. The waiter was a little weird though, like if he didn't approve of our choice or request, he would repeat it sarcastically.

Review №57

Very good food. The owners are nice, they have a bar, music and pool tables. I was suprised to see not many people here but I have had their food many times and have never been let down. Definitely give them a try.

Poor Customer Service and Poor Food Quality

Review №66


Review №67

Love it! Athena is attentive and personable. A family affair!

Review №68

Omfg! She makes everything from scratch! The food was delicious, and I never use that word to describe my food but that's how good it was. The place has a Dj on Fridays and the atmosphere is just perfect in there. Head's up! The staff consists of Athena, her daughter plus 1 waiter so expect a wait for your meal: totally worth it though!

Review №69

Athena's was amazing. The owner (Athena) was very very personable, and spent a lot of time with us while we were there. The menu is friendly to all, and the Filipino food was top notch! Thank you, Athena!

Review №88

Their food gave me a stomach bug. When me and my friend went back to the hotel after eating here, I started throwing up and I was send to the emergency room for food poisoning. I didn't even eat half of my plate because the food was not good. This is the first time I got this sick by eating Filipino food.I would not recommend and will never ever eat here again.

Review №89

Absolutely amazing food!!! There were 8 of us(5 adults and 3 children) and the service was great! We had Lumpia for starter and had to order another they were so good!! Pancit, Adobo and the Escabeche were the the authentic meals we ordered and everyone tried a bit of everyones! Can't say how lucky we were to stumble upon this hidden gem in Myrtle Beach!! Family owned and the food is prepared on site by the owner! Amazing amazing amazing!!!!

Review №92

The food is good but the American server is not friendly at all.

Review №93

New menu with lots of Filipino dishes along with the best chicken they are good. Also carry allot of American sandwiches. I have been going to this restaurant and or having them deliver lunch. Very nice owners with great food.

Review №94

Good place to chill drink and eat

Review №95

Great cook. Very nice small Filipino restaurant. Not your typical tourist spot. We had a party of 7 for lunch. They explained the food we were unfamiliar with. Pork adobo was so good. Prices were reasonable. Everything made on the spot. Athena is a great cook and super nice. Website needs work and she has plenty of Filipino and American food to please all. The even have mountain dew. Don't judge it frome website. Just go and enjoy.

Review №96

I was excited to know there's a Filipino restaurant here. They need to improve and update their place. I ordered pancit bihon and pork adobo. The pancit was so oily and the rice was hard and dry. The pork adobo does nor taste like adobo at all. I am giving 2 stars coz the server was attentive.

Review №97

Best food in Myrtle Beach! I had fish curry which was really delicious and amazing!

Review №98

Great food - really nice people as well

Review №99

Not saying the pancit was not the best, tasted like beef flavored ramen noodles

Review №100

Wonderful food and delightful service! Fresh Filipino food, thoughtfully explained if needed as well as tasty American fare.Everything is delicious!
