The Ancient Greeks were famous for their hospitality. It is our sincere hope that a restaurant anmed for one of the oldest temples in the world renowned for its beauty and culture can foster an appreciation for one area of that culture - its authenic Greek cuisine - among native Greek and Americans alike.

Keeping Things Humble & Traditional!
The Greeks are known for many things like their history, hospitality and cuisine. Since 1984 Emmanuel and Sophia Psaras have been living up to those standards; making and serving their Greek goodies out of at the end of a small shopping strip in Fredericksburg. The moment you walk through the door you are welcomed by the aroma of rich marinara and baked cheese. One of the family members will usually greet you at there, it won't be long before you have a cozy seat on the family table, just like at home. This is because our restaurant is small and it is operated solely by the Psaras family, ever since the beginning.
Welcome Home Dear...
You will not find the typical modern corporate restaurant here. Parthenon maintains the same humble character which made us one of Fredericksburg's dining landmarks over the past 30 years.
Our restaurant is small and has remained that way since Manny and Sophia opened for business in 1986. We have preserved the same humble style and attitude which results in a true family restaurant dining experience for our guests.
Our dinning room seats up to 60 individuals and features a rustic, relaxed family dining room atmosphere. The required dressed code here is that you are dressed appropriately to seat on the dining room table. All we ask is that you bring your appetite with you - YiaYia doesn't take no for an answer!
Our Menu features many Greek, Italian and American Specialties! Beer and Wines from the old country as well. Click on the images to see or download the full menu!

We love Greek food and we make it a point to try as many Greek restaurants as we can. This wonderful little Mom and Pop Greek restaurant was a awesome find with tasty fare, affordable prices, and sweet hospitality. On the menu you can find delicious Greek favorites, pizzas in a variety of sizes and American fare. This restaurant is sure to have something that will please every member of the family. If you are after a meal that is served with a side of love then you are sure to find it here!
Such a breath of fresh air compared to a typical chain restaurant. As soon as you walk in the delicious aroma overwhelms you. It was as though I was going to dinner at my Ya-Ya's house. Service was great. Food was delicious. If I'm ever in the area again I will definitely come back. Decor is a bit dated, but it sort of just added to the charm!
The owner was just sweet, I wanted to hug her when we left. She talked to us about her hometown in Greece & what it was like, where to go there. Next time we pass through we'll stop without a 2nd thought. So glad we have it a try.
OMG! How lucky to have found a place like this. A hidden gem. Really really good. If ever in town again, would definitely stop in again.
Classic and enjoyable. The family and the food are wonderful. This is what local is about. Fresh food, engaging and friendly service. Wonderful spot.
Just like going home. Warm reception, family recipes, and Greek music. We stop in everytime we visit Fredericksburg, and for a good reason.
