Opa.

We were in a party of five people. We had their special family dinner. The food was very good and as promised they brought more after the third course. The problem we had was with the drinks. Two of us ordered two different beers which were both flat, making the beer icky tasting. The Pinot Grigio wine was also not... More

I have been to George's several times now, having been referred to by a friend. Whenever I have a hankering for lamb chops, I go to George's. It never fails or falters. They are good, just get them!

I have gone to George's for over a decade. The location on 2nd street is also fantastic! My favorite is the stuffed salmon, but the chicken slouvachi is also a go to dish. I do NOT like lamb, but the lamb chops at George's are so good, I actually enjoy them! This is a true family owned business, run by... More

George's is a family owned restaurant that is worth multiple visits. We've been going there for over 15 years. The service is very friendly and efficient. Prices are reasonable. The menu is as Greek as it can get. The food is delicious. My favorites are the lamb dishes. Ample seating is available at about 6:00 PM each week day. The... More
