George is always warm and welcoming. This place can get packed, so consider a reservation. The food is excellent. We've used George's for years, and are glad to see he has brought his great menu to the new Long Beach Airport terminal!

The service was the best part about this place. Food was okay, the fries were a bit greasy. Nothing special or memorable

This is a regular dining spot for us and a great way to eat healthy with salad and added chicken or salmon.

We love this place, and so do many locals. It is ultra-casual, but the food is very good at a reasonable price. Service is quick and friendly. There are many outdoor tables available, and the weather in Long beach is usually great, so try it....More

Unfamiliar with downtown Long Beach’s eateries, and looking for a decent dinner before the symphony on Saturday night without having booked anywhere in advance, we wandered into George’s Greek Café. At around 5 p.m. it was still relatively empty, but by the time we left...More

George's Greek Cafe welcomes you to "a little piece of Greece in Southern California." Our family-owned business is here to provide you with high quality food, craft cocktails, and an authentic Greek dining experience. Our restaurant has remained a favorite among the locals for one reason: we never compromise on our promise to provide fresh and delicious meals in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. We continue to follow Mama Rodou's recipes, which were passed down to her from her grandmother. We use only the finest imported ingredients, such as first cold pressed extra virgin olive oil from Greece and premium, hormone-free, grass-fed lamb from New Zealand. We want to extend an open invitation to you to dine at one of our restaurants. Whether you're looking to impress a date with an intimate wine tasting, reconnecting with family over Saganaki Flaming Cheese and lamb chops, or planning the perfect wedding reception for 500 of your closest friends, we are here for you. Come in, and feel like part of the family. OPA!
