Hardly any room inside, so we sat out on the patio. The problem with that is people smoke outside and my friend is really bothered my smoke. Everything is ordered through the bar, including the food. The line at the bar was rediculously long the whole time. The told us we could order at the side window for the patio, but it was closed and no one ever waited on it. The cucumber martini was really good, though.
Athena's is a great bar. Very welcoming to patrons of all colors and backgrounds. They offer different types of entertainment from night to night and great drink specials. I highly recommend this bar and suggest that you try the "Mean Athena"! Very tasty! :o)
The folks at FBO are super knowledgeable, provide a great half or day trip on the French Broad and have a great selection of boats for purchase.
Very large farmer's market. Really cool place to browse. Local honey. Veggies, but not all local. Neat crafts. Farm fresh, free range eggs.
