George's Greek Cafe was a wonderful experience-from my waitress recommending the lamb chops to the other nice waiter who stopped by with a dessert tray and explained the treats. I'm 50/50 with lamb, but I tell you, these lamb chops were so tasty, small and lean, easy to just pick up and munch on. Highly recommend Georges's!

This was our second visit to George's Greek café. Our waitress each time had very dynamic personality.( friendly, humorous, not over barring with service). Our food was prepared just right for us. Love the sidewalk tables. Had a Bloody Mary that rank at the top of my list. With all the other restaurant's in the immediate area, this is the... More

We started by ordering the owner's pino grigio. It can be drunk like water. Nice, especially with the pita bread and the olive/onion/lemon dip. The rest was of equal quality. Maybe a little bit too much to eat, especially because we do not like waste. Good and pleasant staff, and not crowded.

If George is there, he will personally greet you. Everything I've tried there is delicious. I love the Greek salad, humus and pitas, Greek chicken sandwich, everything!

There is a mix of inside and outside seating. Some is along the street where you can people watch. Some is in under shade trees. The food is a good mix of light to heavy and the portions are good. I had the gyro salad and it was great. The atmosphere is relaxed, but there is still ample attention from... More
