About Us

Our seafood-oriented restaurant was established by three Greek brothers in 1909. Originally a bakery and a luncheonette, Athenian Seafood Restaurant and Bar was among the first in Seattle to receive a liquor license for beer in 1933. The sign above the front door has remained unchanged for over half a century.

Our restaurant’s transformation from a bakery to a tavern and eventually a restaurant is a true representation of the growth opportunities in our country.

Throughout its existence in Pike Place Market, our restaurant has served as a meeting point for people from all over the country and around the world. It has also been a sanctuary for those who have made their homes and futures in the beautiful Great Northwest. Today, patrons visit us for our selection of fresh seafood, delightful bar food, and locally crafted brews. See our TripAdvisor page to learn why customers love us.
