“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

To start, it was great

Originally, this was not our first pick as my girlfriend had already been to George's and we wanted to try something completely new. However, the completely new place, down the road, had horrible service, and I wasnt too impressed by the food menu either. The wine list was extensive and affordable, but altogether unsatisfactory.

We then decided to go for a place she knew would be good. So we went to George's. Arriving, it was near a full house, but we were quickly given a table, and the service was prompt.

Our waiter, Malusi (not sure the spelling), took the time to try and explain the different S.A. Beers to me, and then made a great dinner suggestion.

Like I said, the service was prompt. Not overly fast, and not lagging, even at full rush. The food was delicious! and the atmosphere was great. I thoroughly enjoyed my dinner here and would recommend George's to any and all.

and a special thanks to our waiter Malusi. If he's still there, request him. you wont be let down.

“Great Steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Georges on 4th nestled in the heart of Parkhurst delivers good food, the fillet medallions, although slightly pricy are very well worth it as it is full of flavour and the portioning is satisfactory.

In general Georgoes can be slightly over priced and occassionally the service can be slow but if you are no rush and are happy to enjoy the atmosphere, the food and the surroundings (internally and externally) make it well worth the visit.

“Great vibe but otherwise pretty average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012 via mobile

Come here more for the buzz and flavor of the neighborhood rather than the food. Standard fair and ok service.

“it is good but not great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2012

probably the best food on the street, but not 5 star so maybe a little pricey for what you get
