Came here for my birthday 2 years ago and I was very disappointed in the food. Nothing special about it. I live in the area and whenever I ride by it aggravates me still that we spent my 60th here when there were so many better choices in Athens.

I was meeting a friend who was late. Sitting at the bar, I ordered fried dill pickles, which were as good as I remembered but were, to my surprise, no longer on the menu. Why did I get them? They provide them now only for people like me, who remember and ask! I'm not a martini drinker, but Mondays are... More

We stopped here for brunch as we pulled into Athens thanks to the Trip Advisor reviews. We had the stuffed eggplant & crawfish étouffée and key lime pie. All completely delicious and bargains given the prices/serving sizes. Can't wait to eat here again (we're already considering coming back for dinner).

I am going to have to call this the best in Athens, at least for locals who want really good food at a decent price. I am hesitant to give a really glowing review for fear that it will become crowded or the good business model might change. Anyway, it is a good, simple-without-being-boring menu, and the big bonus of... More

Located just off the 10 Loop in a small shopping center on South Milledge Avenue in Athens, GA, George's might be overlooked. If you did, you'd be missing one of the best low country meals to be had in Athens. Nice little bar that has become something of an "end of the day" waterhole for a small group of locals.... More

We frequent George's because the food is terrific and the staff are always welcoming. Mainstays are: fried shrimp, includes potatoes and a corn-tomato side dish; crawfish Étouffée, with rice; excellent crab cakes; and redfish (or similar) with Étouffée topping. All are accompanied by cheese biscuits and a nice side salad. For excellent cuisine, the prices are very reasonable. We particularly... More

Went to George's with friends. I ordered the gumbo while my wife ordered the scallops. The gumbo was more tomatoey than i have had elsewhere (my standard for gumbo is from New Orleans and I make my own gumbo at home, so my standards may be too high). The six scallops were served on a bed of grits. These were... More

While touring with a bus group, our leader had chosen this restaurant for our evening meal. We were seated on the shady patio on a blissful, pleasant evening. The food was outstanding as was the service. Everyone complimented their choice in food. I wish we lived closer to the area so we could visit again.

This is one of our favorite eateries in Athens. The food is a good piece of Cajun . The service and atmosphere are friendly. I particularly enjoy the redfish with étouffée . The wine special sometimes unearths a find.
