“Great food and a view to go with it.”
Reviewed April 9, 2013 via mobile

Enjoyed the grouper. Wonderfully prepared with just the right amount of jalapeño in the sauce. Choose the dish because I had never had fried spinach, couldn't resist and I wasn't disappointed. My colleagues had the sea bass and enjoyed their dishes as well.

“Lovely lunch by the water.”
Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

Loved the seafood and patio dining on the riverwalk. We had the fish tacos and crabcake sandwich. Our sides were equally tasty! We will be back.

“Children Approved”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

The food was excellent and the outdoor seating was beautiful. Our waitress was on top of everything. There was a little bit of chill in the air and they provided us with blankets to keep warm. We will be going back.

“Excellent Restaurant for Lunch”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Four of us went to The George for Saturday lunch and found the restaurant to be very satisfying in all aspects. Our server was excellent and the food was good.

I'm sure we will return to dine on the veranda during better weather.

“Great food with beautiful views”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

It has been a while since my last visit to The George. I had heard there was a new chef, and was hesitant to bring a cousin who was visiting the area. We were both very pleased with our orders. We had hummus as our appetizer and it was excellent. There were three different types, all delicious, surrounded by pita triangles. The shrimp and grits were delicious, with a creamy texture. The parmesan crusted sea bass was perfectly cooked. We were able to sit outdoors and enjoy the beautiful view. While there, they turned on attractive outdoor heaters. We left relaxed and contented.
