“Food was fine, but lacks atmosphere.”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

We recently ate dinner here with a group of 20. The atmosphere in the upstairs is "just a room."
The service was friendly, but the wait time for our meals was long. (We had a choice of 5 items, so they should have been prepared.) I ordered my prime rib medium, and it arrived nearly rare, as did 2 others. We were glad we didn't order rare or it would still have been mooing!

“Very Good Restaurant in New Ulm, MN”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Had dinner at George's in New Ulm recently. The food was quite good, as was the beer. They offered several beers from the local brewery, Schell's Brewing Co. I had an excellent pasta dish, with very fresh rolls. The owner and the bartender were both very friendly.

“Wonderful food!”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

My boyfriend and I had a late dinner at George's on Saturday the 17th. Food was wonderful and our waitress was great! We sat upstairs at a window. Ambience could be improved on, but the food was great.

“Not terrible but won't go back.”
Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

We had fairly decent meals at George's. The steak I had was a bit tough but good flavor. My daughter enjoyed her pasta but couldn't eat the meatballs.
The biggest problem with the place is the atmosphere. Dated, loud and tacky. It's just one of those places that doesn't lure you back.

“Over priced but decent”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

My husband and I went for our anniversary. I am sorry to say that the quality of the steaks did not match up with the price we paid for them. Unfortunately our steaks did not come as ordered but both of them were a little over done, I can't complain too much as we didn't send them back. The char on the steaks was nice but they were under seasoned. That being said the owner was very nice, came over to our table to greet us. The baked potatoes and other accompaniments were spot on. Of special note was the portabella "topper". On the menu it doesn't say you're getting a mushroom stuffed with cheese and topped with fried onions, super yummy on a steak (I would have been content ordering that with the baked potato!). Probably the best food you'll find in New Ulm but for the price I've had much better steaks.
