We had outdoor seating for dinner, it was lovely. I ordered a gyro (not the most exciting choice) but it was SO good. Service is very good. They make sure you always have what you need and make sure everything is going well. Don't pass this place up if you're in Long Beach.

This restaurant was excellent.  I was in town for 4 days and ate there 5 times.  Once for lunch with a friend, then met a friend later in the day so we went back for dinner.  Got to meet George, he shakes the hands of his customers and greet you with a smile.  Staff is knowledgable about the food.  Sharon was my favorite server.  Must get...

Can my experiences of eating out here in California get any better, well yes. An excellent meal with superb service by our waiter Simon. The evening was all you could ask for, great authentic food, good wines and perfect ambiance. If your in Long Beach go find this gem.

Located in one of the main streets of long beach, it is a great place to enjoy a dinner. The staff is very nice and helpful. The waiters and waitresses make sure to check up on you periodically! The prices and the portions are large, food was delicious (I tried and recommend Lamb Chops (appetizer) and Lamb Souvlaki).

Both drinks and food specials. We had spanikopita, tzantsiki and the lamb chops. all were good, but the lambchops? Delish! Friendly bartenders with good recommendations. I'd return for one of their giant salads with falafel. They looked yummy.

We've eaten at Georges twice. The location is nice, along Pine Avenue, but the food is very average. We ordered dolmathes, a chicken gyro, and kefthedes our second time there. None of it was fresh, and they brought us the wrong order twice in one night. Having lived in Greece for a few years (Athens and Thessaloniki), I can say... More
