Often "Greek" restaurants aren't truly Greek. But George's is the real thing. The Greek salad was just perfect with delicious home-made dressing. The gyro sandwich was ever so tasty. And the service - unbelievable! I think my waiter brought it within 3 minutes.

Perfect lamb chops accompanied by local wine is a must. One of their locations offers live music, great idea for a fantastic meal.

Great authentic Greek cuisine. Staff was nice. Enjoyed the indoor/outdoor seating. Wish the bar was a bit larger with more seating.

Although I've been visiting the downtown Long Beach area during business trips several times a year for decades, I've only recently "discovered" George's Greek Cafe. I'm hooked. Not only is the standard Greek restaurant cuisine excellent, such as gyro and avgolemono (lemon) soup, I've become acquainted with an appetizer I had not seen or tasted before eating at George's: Hallumi....

Had the gyro falafel for an appetizer. They were quite tasty served on a bed of hummus and side of tomato salad. For entree, I had the Greek village salad with a side of lamb kebab. The salad was a bit heavy of green pepper, but the waitress informed me that I could get more or less of any of... More

During our stay we ate out for very supper and a few lunches this was BY FAR our FAVOURITE lunch. The lamb is amazing. OK so ambience is just ok but when you get FANTASTIC service and GREAT food, you might overlook a little less ambience. We shoudl have gone for supper too. Loved it.

This restaurant is always full, and there is a reason for this. It's fantastic. They serve great food with real Greek taste. Lamb chops are worth the visit. The service is great too. First time we went there Nick gave us a full explanation of the menu and nailed it completely. To finish, one of the best oriental coffees I... More

I loved the new digs. I had visited 13 years earlier and remembered how good and authentic the food was. The Saganaki is delicious. The lamb was good. The Greek Salad was okay; tomatoes not ripe and very meager little pieces of feta (was expecting big chunks). The service was great and I had a patio table. There are great... 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!
