I was skeptical about the high rating here and arrived here after visiting Rosie's Dog Beach in Belmont Shores. I parked a few blocks away by the mall to avoid any metered parking and was just a short walk. We were seated at the dog friendly patio along with others with their best friends which is worth a extra star... More

We went to George"s on a Wednesday evening, and our server was Bou Bou. She was extremely delightful and very helpful. We had the hummus and spicy feta dips for an appetizer, and they were both absolutely amazing. We both had the build your own platter. The lamb chops were phenomenal. The gyro came deconstructed, which was nice because it... More

Went by on a Friday night, sat on a sidewalk table, started with one of the best hummus I've ever had, ordered excellent lamb, shrimp & mignon kabobs with rice & vegetables. A bottle of good Greek meritage wine & a superb view of the Long Beach night life at Pine Avenue... Perfect!!! Highly recommended!

Not a fancy joint but good food and very friendly and prompt service. I like their prep of salmon, and their salads are huge and delicious.

George's Greek Cafe in downtown Long Beach proves it's 5 star score with it's amazing service, excellent ambiance, and even better food. I had lunch here on Memorial Day weekend. Pine Street was not as busy as usual, George's also being on the slow side the time we came by. While there is nothing very special about George's Greek Cafe... More

Love this family friendly restaurant and we visit regularly. If you're lucky, you will see George himself who enjoys meeting his customers and treating them like family. The food is pretty authentic as well.

Though a little higher priced than I prefer, the food and atmosphere were excellent! I recommend the lamb chops!

Lamb kabobs cooked to perfection. Happy hour menu from 3-7 gives some good food prices, although the drinks prices aren't exactly a steal. Great service and ambiance.
