High expectations and very disappointed! First and last time I'll ever visit the PIT. Dining room was old, dark, and depressing. There are NO windows in this building. I've had better steak at Texas Road House, for half the price. My Fiancée ordered Jumbo fantail shrimp (she was sick all night). I believe the shrimp was frozen grocery store style... More

This steakhouse is a local favorite and is on par with some of the finer steakhouses outside of the area. The steaks, chicken, pork, and fish are grilled in an open pit over hickory logs (if you don't like a smoky flavor, then choose another steakhouse). The menu offers wine pairing suggestions (extensive wine list!) and homemade desserts. Service is... More

As a native of Sheffield, of course I've been dining there since George and Vangie were regular fixtures there and we would see their kids helping in the kitchen and dining room. I have been living away from the Shoals for nearly 40 years and have returned to George's several times over the years. It is nice to see that... More

We went to George's to get a good meal. Boy, were we disappointed! Start to finish the meal was terrible. The "greek" salad dressing was straight vinegar. Then the tenderloin filet kabob ($26.95) was tough and so full of grisel that you could not cut the meat. My husband's porkchops ($19.95) were tough and dry. The tab for the two... More

We went to celebrate my Aunt's 80th. Although they were told it was special, they didn't even have our reservation down. So no acknowledgment was made. The meals are fine. I ordered the filet and it was tasty. My Aunt ordered a small rib eye that was overlooked and so was my husband's. But, the service was good and the... More

I came to George's with a group of about 25-30 rowdy guys after golfing. The wait staff was phenomenal. They took great care of our group and made the night fun for all. They were very attentive and thorough. They listened to everyone's orders and got all the details spot on. The food was just as good as their service.... More

In town for the weekend and our in-laws recommended we try it. Beautiful decor, great selection on the menu, and attentive service. My rib eye was cooked as ordered and is the best I've ever had. The loaded baked potato had a slab of melted cheese on top and was a meal by itself. My wife chose the Greek Salad... More

George's is similar to Ruth Chris steakhouse with only with quality handcrafted salad dressings.Steaks are fired with an open wood pit Char Grill. Excellent service, excellent cocktails. This is like an old-time steakhouse/dinner house and your gonna like what you eat.

Dont get the seafood platter. The breading on the oysters is very thick and not particularly tasty. The steak is reliable. The Greek platter is a good appetizer.

George's Steak Pit is the most upscale restaurant in the Shoals area. The atmosphere at George's is so serene and romantic. The food is delicious. I ordered the 10 oz. prime rib, loaded baked potato, garlic bread, and french onion soup ($28.95). My husband had the tossed salad, grilled chicken, and baked potato ($19.95). The portions were large and the... More
