There are a few family style restaurants near Athens, Pennsylvania and you can get brief reviews right here. Most of these are family owned and operated, which promotes the hometown feeling.
Beemans 242 N Elmira St, Sayre, PA – (570) 888-2345
Beemans is a family style restaurant in Athens Township that is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner seven days a week. This is one of the most popular eateries in town, and only holidays it is better get to a reservation as it is usually full.
The hostess sits people down in one of two comfortable dining rooms, in the lounge or at the counter. It does not matter if your group is one person or two, Beemans will accommodate you.
The home-style food is served in generous portions and you will not go hungry. With a full selection of homemade desserts in a cooler out front, it will tempt taste buds of everyone who comes into the establishment.
Open until 10 pm nightly, Beeman’s is perfect for a late night dinner any time of the year and is right next door to Grace’s Chinese Buffet.
Grace Chinese Buffet 242 N Elmira St, Sayre, PA
Grace’s Chinese Buffet is also a family style restaurant located in Athens Pennsylvania and has all your Oriental favorites and American favorites as well. It is open from eleven am until eleven at night, seven days a week.
You can sit in the air conditioned dining room or get a take out box to take home and enjoy. The staff is friendly and courteous. They will go the extra mile for a special request.
Large groups should call ahead for reservations so the staff can make sure that you are all seated together. However if you have a group of ten the staff will quickly seat you within minutes.
Prices are good for a buffet so take the family any time but on Friday and Saturday it is seafood night so the price does go up a little. The establishment is also packed on seafood night, so be prepared.
Reese’s 471 N Keystone Ave, Sayre, PA – (570) 888-8747
Reese’s is a family style restaurant near Athens, Pennsylvania that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. This one is affordable for families or groups of all sizes. The wait staff is fast and friendly.
The food comes hot from the kitchen and is cooked to perfection. I highly recommend the sausage biscuits and gravy or the chicken fried steak, as both are excellent. The terrific specials are available at any time, but the breakfast specials are perfect for any budget or hunger level.
