The lamb chops are amazing and the Greek salad with calamari is delicious. The service is great and if you sit at the bar during happy hour the price can not be beat.

...we arrived a little early for dinner and really late for lunch. However not really impressed about the place and food.. the service is quite a long wait, to order, (We wanted to get up and just walk out.) then the server came. Food is not good at all. Lakewood/ Long Beach area.Sorry 🤷‍♀️.

My wife and I had gyro and salad. The gyro lacked flavor and the salad lacked enough feta cheese. We've had much better, would not recommend or return.

Parking is difficult, street metered parking. We've been to Greece, food was just ok, very disappointed that the moussaka wouldn't be ready until 3:00, we were there at 2:00. The grilled chicken was good, salad & rice were average. Service was very good.

I've been coming to George's since they moved from 3rd and Pine to this location. Me and my co-workers came here in December for our company holiday party, so festive and fun. They put out the white canopies out on the patio and had the heat lamps on. The family here is so humble and always around, daughter Nicki helps... More

Having spent a month in Greece years ago, we went in search of authentic Greek food in Long Beach. We visited many restaurants in Long Beach and on the outskirts and non could compare....until George's. The food is authentic (yes, they're actually from Greece) and the service is awesome! If you're looking for authenticity, this is your place!

Description
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!
