We parked in the lot next to the restaurant, purchased a one hour stay for $3.50. Inside the restaurant we saw a sign that said we could park for free in the lot across the street. We were told by an employee that if we...More

We enjoyed our lunch on the river. It was good and the ice tea was cold. We had a great experience here the prices are a bit high but it is in the tourist area.

We stopped by George on the Riverwalk while out walking. The service was a little slow which is why we did not rate this restaurant a 5. The food, however, was tasty and we even went back the next day for some lunch carryout.

The river walk is beautiful. The shops quaint. Great restaurants all about. But you have to make George a must stop. We love that they cater to dogs and are allowed to stay with you in their out door section. They will bring dog bowls...More

Great question! Casual dress is permitted as boating guests are welcome during lunch and dinner service. Many guests dress up more in the evening but nothing special is required. We hope to see you soon!
