Took the family here for an evening meal on a Friday night. Two of us had the Special Greek Lamb was night and tender. One had the stuffed steak which he said was delicious . My daughters had an assortment of sides which they enjoyed - they were pleased with their choice as the main courses were rather large. Good... More

I went here with co-workers. I ordered the traditional gyro. The portions are big and delicious. George walks around to make sure everyone is doing well. Great atmosphere. The staff is very friendly.

Visited George's after getting off the ferry from Catalina Island. Wonderful outdoor seating with attentive service & tasty Greek food. We ordered an appetizer & split the, but still had took good home. George welcomed us upon arrival & gave my husband a big birthday hug when we left.

George's Greek Cafe is a great choice for basic Greek cuisine, nicely prepared, healthy-sized portions at reasonable prices in a very pleasant atmosphere, especially on the outdoor patio. Our party of 3 shared a small horitiaki salad and it was plenty. My friend and I had the lamb chops, which were very tasty; my wife enjoyed the chicken souvlaki. Service... More

My wife and I are frequent diners at the downtown restaurant or the Belmont Shore location. Our favorite is the outside patio downtown. What a great atmosphere. Both locations serve delicious plates. Fresh and well presented. The best Greek food in SC. These are LB treasures. Say hello to George at the downtown lunch hour!

Excellent service, food, and location. My bff and I loved just sitting on their patio and enjoying their yummy food. I have to go each time I visit Long Beach.

I wrote a review and ended up incorrectly posting it under by husband's page. I will add that we love Greek food, and I love garlic fries as well. Disappointed with both. And, disappointed with the service also. We had an hour and a half for lunch and was late making it back.

We were at a conference in LA and were flying out of Long Beach airport. Looked at Trip Advisor and saw this restaurant. We could not have had a better time and the food was amazing! Lamb chops with shrimp was an A+. Kelsey our waitress was super friendly. Her manager gave us a hug on the way out. Next... More

I was not really impressed. I expected more given all the good reviews. I had the chicken sandwich with an upgrade on the fries to add garlic and feta. The chicken was dry, tough. The pita was soggy. The fries, which could have been amazing, had a clump of chopped garlic from a a jar dumped on top of an... More

George's Greek Cafe welcomes you to "a little piece of Greece in Southern California." Our family-owned business is here to provide you with high quality food, craft cocktails, and an authentic Greek dining experience. Our restaurant has remained a favorite among the locals for one reason: we never compromise on our promise to provide fresh and delicious meals in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. We continue to follow Mama Rodou's recipes, which were passed down to her from her grandmother. We use only the finest imported ingredients, such as first cold pressed extra virgin olive oil from Greece and premium, hormone-free, grass-fed lamb from New Zealand. We want to extend an open invitation to you to dine at one of our restaurants. Whether you're looking to impress a date with an intimate wine tasting, reconnecting with family over Saganaki Flaming Cheese and lamb chops, or planning the perfect wedding reception for 500 of your closest friends, we are here for you. Come in, and feel like part of the family. OPA!
