“Wonderful Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

We stopped at George's Greek Cafe for dinner the first night of our trip. George greeted us at the entrance like we were old friends! We weren't hungry for a large meal, so we decided on an appetizer sampler that allowed us to have a variety of items, and an eggplant dip. It was more than enough! Every item was spectacular! We had cantaloupe martinis as we sat outside and watched everyone go by. I wish I could have sampled many other items on the menu!

“Great find in Long Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

We were on a family trip to Long Beach and were looking for a fun place to take the kids. After a ton of searching online, we found George's. We are glad we did. When we first arrived at the restaurant, George was at the front greeting all of the customers. My kids thought it was wonderful to be able to meet the owner and get hugs! We were sat immediately and the waiter was there quickly to explain the specials. My 14 year old ordered the special, which was Kleftico, a slow roasted lamb. It was really delicious. I had the flat iron steak and it was tender and really flavorful. The meal was fun and really good and I would go there again while in Long Beach. Yummy!

“Excellent falafel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

As a vegetarian, I'm never certain how I'll fare at a given restaurant, but Greek is usually pretty good. This time I got a falafel sandwich with a side salad. Both were quite good! The falafel had a bit of spice to it, which was nice. Great location and service. I would definitely recommend eating here if you're in the neighborhood.

My favorite Greek restaurant, period, and one of my favorite restaurants in Long Beach of any kind! Friendly service, and delicious avgolemono (chicken & egg soup) and grilled swordfish dishes. Efkaristo!
