Description: 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!

It was my first time in Long Beach and I didn't know where is a good place to get some lunch. I decided to use my yelp app and find restaurant near my hotel and this restaurant pop up. We decided to take a chance and try some greek food. We order couple of drinks and some appy's. We order calamari, pita bread with hummus and garlic feta fries. The appy's were amazing and the service was excellent. This place deserves the high reviews, will come back next time I'm in Long Beach :)

Saw George’s on Trip Advisor while on a visit to the Queen and the Aquarium. We often consider the sources when reading reviews, but let us tell you, this restaurant has excellent food and service. After wonderful appetizers of saganaki and dolmathis (and of course a glass of wine along with).

Two of us each ordered the lamb chops (4 per plate...see pic..are more than enough), and the third ordered shrimp souvlaki. Just wow on all of it; loaded with veggies, rice pilaf, pita with tsadziki sauce, all entrees had to be eaten slowly to relish the flavor. The management and the cooks obviously pay much attention to detail. We topped it off with galaktoboureko (delicious traditional custard dish), and a small plate with a more delicious melomakarona, a kourambiethes, and a koulourakia. We ended with coffee that was not run-of-the-mill at all, and what a perfect evening on the heated patio. The bill was very reasonable for all we received, and we were thanked as we left. Beat that.

I was worried when I didn't see prices on the menu, but I have Celiac disease and have limited dining options. The food was fantastic, Celiac friendly, and reasonably priced.
