We went with some friends as we were all looking for a great steak. We had their special rib eye. Was cooked properly, but had little to no flavor. They are sectioned off into several smaller rooms, so it was nice to not have to fight so much noise. My main complaint was that when you walk in the front... More

Was craving a steak so we headed to George's. I'll be honestly, I wanted to go to Dale's but since they are no longer there, we headed here to George's. I had a filet which was very nice. They mention they cook over wood - and you could tell. The taste was VERY nice. I usually use A-1 (I know,... More

Was staying in Florence and was told about this place. Very yummy!! Clean, friendly, and fast service!! Ranch and Blue cheese dressings are made by them. We ended up buying a quart of the ranch to take back home to Illinois with us. We all had the Prime Rib, no complaints, and was super super rare like we had requested.

Great place for steaks and chops. Family owned and managed for many years. It is certainly a touchstone restaurant for the Shoals area and well-worth visiting.

Loved our meal, I had the filet and salmon - prepared perfectly! Great waitress, quick service. My husband and I enjoyed every bite! Left stuffed! He got the filet (un-butterflied) and it was awesome! As an appetizer, got the stuffed mushrooms which are also awesome! Our meal does cost more than a usual dinner out for us, but it is... More

We found this by accident. It was not listed on Tripadvisor that we saw. I had a ribeye steak that was great. I also had the best baked potato I have ever had, which seems odd to rave about. It had more than enough butter and sour cream and was cooked perfectly. This is in a light business area and... More

We had just about given up on finding a Great place to eat on this tourist area when we tried George's. We were well under-dressed in our shorts, but no one said a word. Just served up a great ribeye for my husband and blackened red snapper for me like we were their best customers! Good salads and sides. My... More

Judging by the numbers of people dining this is a well liked restaurant. The service was first class and the steal meals were well cooked and presented. This is not a cheap place to eat but the food is well worth paying that little bit extra for.

The steaks at George's are great, as is the service. Everything else is just OK. My salad was boring--iceburg lettuce and one small piece of tomato--and the mixed veggies I got instead of the potato were mushy. That said, it's the best "fine dining" option in the area, so don't fail to make reservations.

If you want a great steak in the Shoals you go to George's. Or so I'm told. I'm not a eater of beef (or pork for that matter). What I do know if if you want a really good meal or a special evening out, you go to George's. We decided to meet up there on a Saturday evening which... More
