We met as a group. The service was great. Helpful without being intrusive. The food was really good. Simple home-style food, yet very tasty. The prices were reasonable as well. We all loved the donuts. Try these if you can still fit in dessert at the end of your meal.

Went with a group of 7 family members for a Saturday lunch and had the $58 banquet. The food was great- really fresh, tasty and good variety. However, the restaurant was incredibly noisy. You had to speak really loudly to hear each other due to conversations from tables nearby. I ended up with a headache. Would love to go back... More

This was my second visit and I didnt quite enjoy it as much as my first visit. Excellent customer service, meal had some amazing flavors, nice ambiance, the only fault was that our coffee orders were mixed up and that the meals werent quite as timely as we had hoped.

Booked months ago because we didn't want to miss out. Loved it, had the $70 Banquet...too much food but it was excellent. Service good however we did feel a little rushed in the beginning. Glad I can now say been to one of George's restaurant and wasn't disappointed .
