Love Greek food but this just didn't do it. Dry and cold gyros with soggy canned domatas. Eighty bucks with a couple beers.

On the positive side, the owner was at the door greeting guests. He was very friendly and hospitable and made small talk during our short wait. Our server was friendly and attentive. On the negative side, the food was subpar. I had the falafel plate...More

You know you're in a great restaurant when the owner greets you (and hugs you) at the door! Wait staff was exceptional!! The greek dressing is to die for. We sat in the outside area and it was very pleasant. Tables were far enough apart...More

Had a giant salad with chicken souvlaki on top...and it was huge. And delicious. And the service was too notch. Definitely a go-to spot when I'm in Long Beach.

We've used George's for two years for an annual retreat for a group of 30. The food is excellent. We order a chicken and lamb dish along with a greek salad and side dishes. You will be very satisfied with a meal at George's.

I loved, loved, LOVED this place! It's a family-owned Greek restaurant named for the patriarch George, who still greets customers during the day with great warmth and energy. We should all have work we love this much. I kind of fell in love with this...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!
