“Ribeye of the Year”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2012 via mobile

Was tossing and turning over George's v. Lombardi's for my last night in Appleton. I read the TA reviews and ultimately decided on George's because I love "old school" places. Let me tell you this - George's was great! My ribeye steak was heavenly - best of the year so far. The service was excellent. Soup AND salad AND potato AND rolls were all included in the sub $20 price for my rib-eye which was a hand trimmed beauty. How can they do it at this price? George's is family owned, building is paid off ten times over and you can tell the family who owns this place takes great pride in serving it friends. Well done - support George's - your stomach and wallet will thank you for it. PS - I would love to have been sitting at that piano bar 30 or 40 years ago, or next Saturday.

“Ney York Strip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2012

The drinks were good and not as expensive as most places! The New York strip steak special was above average. The waitress was very knowledgeable and quite good.

“Best Steaks in the Valley”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

I could deduct a bit for the slow service, but the atmosphere is wonderful...as is the food. Drinks are well mixed.....and every time I have been there, it's the same.....great. I like the "old world" atmosphere.

“A local classic. One of the best steaks anywhere in the world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2012

We've eaten at Georges since 1982. It hasn't changed and they still offer one of the best steaks anywhere - compare it to Mortons, Ruth Chris, Lombardi's, Sullivans (Chicago) or Smith and Wolensky's (NY). Plus, you get a classic taste of old Wisconsin. I hope they never change the basic decor. Pricing is moderate.

“The best place in town for steak.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2012

When you're looking for steak, George's is the place. A great menu (with more than just steak, by the way), pleasant atmosphere, great waitstaff, and a piano bar!
