We had a long weekend and stopped in our on way home. Lady answering phone super nice. Our waitress Lindsay was awesome. She kept our water filled and was very attentive without being annoying. She packed our 3 desserts to go very well. Each dessert...was delicious. I included a picture of the key lime pie. We really enjoyed the beef short ribs and the gumbo soup. Everything was delicious including the biscuits before the meal. I would give it a 5 stars but for this annoying server who was dominating the conversation at the other table. He was so loud and overbearing to be distracting. I had 13 year old twins with me. One looked at me and asked why he was so loud? I shouldn't have to eat my meal Hearing your opinion about wine like you are in my lap.More

Since reopening we’ve been back twice. Except for limited seating inside all is back to the usual outstanding service and meals. Sat out on the patio for supper. Along with several others at tables placed strategically for the “virus protocol”, it was great to be...back. Can’t beat the mussels or any of the entrees.More

Loved the food and the staff did a great job of cleaning and keeping their masks on. Shrimp and grits were fantasy!! Loved the Chickens shrimp too! Highly recommend both!! Crab bisque was delish also!!

We really enjoyed the laid back dining and the delicious food. The Porch Swing cocktail arrived in a pint glass and was cool and delicious without being sweet or heavy. The wedge salad was crispy with bacon and creamy with bleu cheese dressing. The gumbo...was spicy Cajun style. The seared scallops were not glazed, and they were not overcooked, so their delicate flavor was enhanced, not overwhelmed, by the creamy polenta they served on. Fried chicken and tenderloin steak were generous portions. Key lime pie was delectable. No heavy gravy or sauce to bury the delicious flavor of each dish! Service was attentive. We were delighted with this dining experience.More

Read the reviews and we decided to give it a shot today. My wife had the pork and grits and it was truly outstanding. I had the cakes and eggs (crabcakes egg Benedict). The poached eggs were well prepared. The crabcake was flavorful. I had...almost no hollandaise sauce with a very dry dish overall. I saw some that came out with significantly more sauce and it looked better. The biscuits were also pretty dry and served with margarine (good food should have the option for butter!). We will try it again sometime but it was a 50/50 meal today.More

Atmosphere great! I don't care to on the long bench by the window; prefer a table. The chairs just sit better. Roasted Oysters on Tuesday are fabulous. We also enjoy the eggplant with crawfish etoufee is wonderful! My husband enjoys a good steak there.

This the best brunch in Athens, great servers and attendants. This place reminds me of the low country.

My fiancé and I had a date night at George’s recently. We both love seafood, and George’s didn’t disappoint! We started off with a half dozen succulent oysters. She had the shrimp tortellini, and I had the crawfish étouffée. Both dishes were prepared wonderfully and...tasted excellent. The service was prompt and friendly. We definitely recommend George’s for a date night, nice dinner with friends, or business dinner!More

Excellent cajun food that was every bit as good as what I recently had in New Orleans. Small strip mall location is actually a plus because of ease of parking. Interior was attractive and vibe was bustling but not too loud. Food was a little...slow coming out, but server was very pleasant. Overall, exactly what I was looking for for a multi- generational post-UGA b-ball game meal.More

My wife and I came here a few weeks ago for brunch after church. With our crazy pre-Christmas schedule I honestly do not today remember what we had. But it had just the right amount of heat, with appropriate spices included. We can hardly wait...to return 😃😊More
