The food was very good with the waiting staff friendly and nice. We had two combination platters of Greek food shared between the three of us. Enjoyed the evening.

I have been to George's many times, the food and service is always good there. It is nice to sit out on the patio and enjoy the breeze while dining. I usually have the Gyro sandwich with salad, but have also enjoyed the Lamb Souvlaki, Tzantziki, Humus and traditional Greek Salad. Always fresh and tasty, get your Greek fix at... More

We had an absolutely delightful and delicious dinner at George's Greek Cafe in Lakewood. It was a spur of the moment, and they were so accommodating. One greeter gave us a nice outdoor table. Within a minute, Torri the manager stopped by to get our drink and appetizer order started since it was getting busy, and she didn't want to... More

Really a great selection of Greek dishes served in a "nice, fun atmosphere." If you're looking for a great meal at a moderate price, this is the place. Sunday Brunch is really GREAT with a wonderful selection of both America and Greek food. I consider it good Value for Money, and I am thought of as "really frugal - some... More

I've been going to George's Greek Café restaurants for years. And not once have I ever had a bad experience. If they make a mistake they make up for it. My glass is never empty for more than a minute. Most of the time I feel like I drink about half of my glass and it is full again. The... More

George's has delicious dolmathes. I always order the meat filled but they also have vegetarian ones. The chicken souvlaki is amazing and they have the best baklava. The restaurant is always spotless and the service is excellent.

Family owned and run. Love the relaxed atmosphere. Don't know if they take reservations, but have never needed one. The staff is friendly, helpful with food/drink pairings, and never seems to be in a rush to turn tables over, so you can linger with friends over your meal. There are enough options on the menu and flexibility in the kitchen... More
