Arrived on time for our 8pm reservation but was advised that it would be a 10 minute wait even though the restaurant was more than half empty...no problem. Was summoned back up and given a table positioned so my head was up against the bar...weird but no problem.

We promptly ordered drinks followed by our dinner order (no appetizers). It took an hour and twenty minutes for our food to arrive...by far the longest we've EVER waited to be served. My wife inquired if there might have been a problem with the food and was advised there was as rush of clients. Festival or not this place was half empty for nearly two hours so the lip service was not appreciated.

Although the food was okay I cannot recommend this establishment...especially if you're expecting fine dining. Plenty of other options available in Twillingate.

Excellent food at reasonable prices. I did ask that the BBQ sauce be left off of my entree, but it came with the sauce on it. It still tasted pretty good.

We've enjoyed Georgie's many times and will many times more.

The menu is great and imaginative and everything is made from scratch, when you order it.

So that takes a few minutes but so what?

Relax, enjoy the view of Twillingate harbour and sip on a glass of something tasty while the chef does his or her magic.

We love it .

Fresh, extraordinary food made with local ingredients and with lovely presentation.
Friendly and not overbearing service too.

This is our first visit to Newfoundland, to visit friends in Twillingate. After a full day of sightseeing we all arrived at the restaurant (reserved ahead because we heard how popular it was). The owners greeted us personally, making us feel right at home. Service was timely and professional, the waitress made excellent suggestions from the menu as we were new to the area. Our window seat looked out to the harbour, although virtually no seat is a bad seat. Conversation and sipping on delicious local wine led us up to one of the best 5 star meals I have ever had. The presentation, the freshness of the food and the skill of the Chef was second to none. It is very obvious the owners take great pride in giving their customers the best in service and quality - thank you for this memorable experience. Hope to be back soon!!
