Went for lunch, server was rude. Kinda got the feeling that because we got iced tea instead of drinks we were not a priority. (It was a Saturday) Pretty place, loved sitting on patio. Food took a very long time. Teas were never refilled. Food average. Table beside us had some sort of seafood nachos, seafood smelled spoiled. They had... More

We sat outside for a late breakfast and the setting was great. The food was ok, could of had more sauce on our benedict and the eggs were a little over cooked. The service was very good.

We had a very nice dinner outside on the patio. Great place to people watch and to watch the boats go by. Menu had great choices for the whole family.

The George was recommended to us by some local guys we met that morning. My husband and I had a delicious lunch of Shrimp and Crab Nachos and Shrimp and Grits. (We shared both.) The service was very good, and sitting on the patio was perfect. We enjoyed being by the water while also doing some serious people-watching. We'd absolutely... More

When we arrived to the restaurant around 6:55 they had told us that they had just seated all of the balcony tables and that it would be about 30 minutes until a... More

We happened on this place as we were walking the riverfront and had lunch here. I'm glad we did. The view is excellent food was good, and the staff was helpful and friendly. I would recommend this place for breakfast, lunch or dinner. We will be back!
