My wife and I have eaten both lunch and dinner several times over the years. G/W has consistently provided good food and good service. They have a nice selection of craft beers. The Brie appetizer and Thai Chili Buffalo Shrimp are both excellent. I got the Grouper Sandwich which was good but a bit too much breading and my wife... More

We visited George & Wendy's for an early lunch mid week. The weather was lovely so we sat on the patio. A friendly waitress came very soon after the hostess had seated us. She gave us menus and answered our questions about several offerings. My husband had a beer and I had white wine. I ordered the Grouper platter (grilled)... More

Food is clearly prepared with care. Presentation is very nice. Portions are reasonable - not too big, not too small. We had crab cakes which were very good but expensive. I had a greek salad with chicken - it was good but was basically a regular salad with some peperoncinis and feta added. The greek dressing was good but tasted... More

Just returned from dinner at George and Wendy's. First, and most importantly, food was great. My wife had the NY strip special and I had the bleu cheese encrusted salmon. The salmon wasn't actually encrusted, but the bleu cheese topping was still good. Mary H, our server seemed to be pleasant. However, she rushed us in ordering (yes, I know... More

My husband and I both ordered the Grouper Franciesse. It was absolutely delicious. Our best meal so far on our vacation.

Excellent food, of the 7 dishes we ordered over 2 meals everyone was very pleased. The service is warm and friendly, and they had no problem adjusting an order for one of our group.

We enjoy the casual island atmosphere and the friendly bartenders, especially Carmen, Joe and Chantil, at George and Wendy's so much that we have eaten there three times. And the food is wonderful! The prime rib special was a good cut with a flavorful crust and the snow crab legs were delicious. The Caribbean salad is a favorite ---- it... More

I really enjoyed my experience at this restaurant. The service was wonderful, the homemade bread I received before my dinner was PHENOMENAL and my meal, as well as my father's and mother's was flawless! I had the haddock sandwich, and I have to say...I've had many fried fish sandwiches, and this one was one of the best I had. It... More

Wow. Nice job. We were late to the Sunday brunch and it had been dismantled. No problem. They were still on point. We ate outside and had a nice seat. Traffic noise was very minimal even though you are right by the street. Food was excellent. I had shrimp and grits, one of my favorite Southern dishes. They did a... More

Sunday noon. Breakfast bar unattended and looked old . Unappetizing scrambled eggs. Admittedly end of the breakfast period but it looked awful. Chose crabcakes. Tasteless.Took an hour to come. Asked for bill. That took 25 minutes.
