Based on great reviews we dined at George's. The service was excellent, but the Greek meals were average. Not bad, but not great!

I could eat their horatiki salad with calamari every day of the week! It isn't too heavy, it's tasty and their portions are generous. Service is attentive here and prices are incredibly reasonable. They have a patio as well that's great for people watching!

I can honestly say every time I have eaten here, it was delicious. The prices are good too. I have even used George's Greek Cafe for catering several events. I can't remember if they cater or if we ordered a lot of take out? I love sitting outside and watching people walk by.
