    I have eaten here many times so I felt comfortable suggesting this restaurant to three friends who were joining me for dinner. We did not complain about the very long wait for our food. We were pleasantly surprised when a manager (I think) came over to apologize for the wait and asked what he could do to make up for it. He specifically mentioned drinks; one of my friends asked for a refill of her wine. His implication was that the drink would be complimentary; it was not.

    I had been to George & Martha's several times for the bar but never for dinner. I wish I hadn't waited so long to eat there - the food was excellent, the service was great, the atmosphere was perfect. My husband and I really enjoyed our date night - and of course, the drinks were great too!

    Was recommended to G&M's by a co-worker. Went to a show at the Mayo Pac, so wanted to go somewhere that was in walking distance and where we could park for the evening! Went with another couple that also had not dined there before! I can't say enough of the atmosphere, the food, the service ~ OVERALL it was a fantastic dining experience and a great start to a fun evening before seeing the show! I would absolutely go again and highly recommend going here! Wanted a nice variety to choose from and I am personally Gluten Free (by choice) and there was a great selection to choose from...sat by the window so we could see the Main Street view...loved the decor and again, the food is delicious and service was amazing!!

    I met my friend here for dinner before a show on a Saturday night. The place is beautiful - really nice bar and dining room!! Had the buffalo calamari appetizer, the Chilean seabass special with a shrimp risotto, and my friend had the lobster ravioli. The calamari was just ok. Nothing special. We've both had better - no tentacles, just rings. My sea bass was well below average. I was so upset as this is my favorite dish. I can't comment on the lobster ravioli. They did discount the check 10% when we showed them our theatre tickets; making this a nice place to go if you are doing a show and want to have dinner as well. Otherwise, this is an average place. Nothing standout about it. Service was good! Food was average. I left disappointed.

    NotImpressed
    Dined on 4/11/2014
    was my second time dining at George and Martha's so I knew they had a lively bar. When I booked the reservation I specifically requested to be as far away from the bar as possible since I didn't think my parents or daughter needed to be too close to the noise. Sadly they put us right next to the open entrance so I asked for a different table and was moved one over, we had to listened the the very loud bass from the bar all dinner long. Service was subpar and food took a very long time to come out, not passed for a nice leisurely meal but so long we thought they lost our ticket and had to ask. My steak I ordered medium well came out charred to a crisp on the outside and blood red on the inside. Horrid experience and don't foresee a return.

    George and Martha's is a place you can rely on for good quality, fresh food served with a creative flair in a quiet setting among professionals. Choose from comfort foods to gourmet cuisine with moderately priced wines and great service. Highly recommended as a first choice or a fall back position.

    Always like the bar. Food not really good and after the build up about the chef very disappointing. And for the pri e definetly not worth it. I had the cod on the menu and he fish smelled and tasted like amonia which means fish going bad. How can the cook do that - clearly more interested and using everything up no matter what. Also the rissoto soupy and starchy

    We went to George & Martha's to celebrate our 28th anniversary. So happy we did! Our server Kaylin (sp?) was welcoming and very accommodating. She was able to make suggestions and above all made us feel special. When my husband mentioned he was a history buff and joked about taking that big picture of Washington crossing the Delaware with him, she went out of her way (busy restaurant) to insure that she would have a photo of George sent to him. Dinner was delicious and lots of great options. Two specials in particular - the cucumber salad was delicious and something you would think only to get in the summer, plus my husbands Mahi Mahi which he requested blackened and came out perfect! And the peanut butter & jelly cheesecake for dessert!

    As the name suggests, this American Grille is doing classical foods with a twist as week as a few innovative things. Locally sourced and sustainable ingredients are definitely a plus. The turkey sliders for lunch were like a family holiday meal on three mini buns. Deliciously savory, sweet, tangy, and very satisfying. Our waiter, Michael, was very friendly, professional, and attentive.

  • Terrible experience
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 3/14/2014
    We went to George and Martha's for girls night dinner. The service was terrible and the food was just as bad. The food took forever to arrive, and the waiter never once came by to apologize for the wait or to ask if we wanted drink refills. The food when it did arrive felt like it was left overs or the bottom of the pot. My chicken noodle soup had no noodles, only chicken and broth. Our salads were missing key ingredients. It was a very disappointing experience overall.

    The food at George & Martha's is decent, but not worth going back for. We hadn't eaten there in a few years and time must have dimmed the memories of how slow the kitchen is. It took 40 minutes for the appetizers to come out and another 30 at least for entrees. When the entrees did arrive, the waitress forgot one of them until reminded another five minutes later. During most of our wait we saw no food coming out of the kitchen and we only got bread even after asking. Management blamed a new computer system but their excuses didn't jive with the experience. Will not return.

    Looking for a place to eat after a movie and OpenTable showed a reservation slot. Food was surprisingly good. Restaurant was a bit noisy, but not enough that it was a problem. Only complain was that the service was a bit inattentive. Probably just got a waitress that was overload or just not on her game.

    We met friends for dinner and squeezed into an extremely tight booth, non of us are overweight. The noise level made conversation difficult but it was a Saturday night so we could let that go. Our waiter apologized about everything from forgetting water, a request for oil for the bread. The piece de resistance came at the end when our bill which we split came back with only our friends credit card. The staff kept making excuses and finally after about 15 min. The card was returned. We were so angry and upset about the possibility if credit card theft that we left in a huff and with no tip. Simply awful experience and we won't be going back even though the food was excellent.

    I met a couple of friends for dinner after work. We all wound up in the bar and chose to eat there instead. The service was good and the wine by the glass selection interesting enough and well priced. We all wound up getting burgers and they were FANTASTIC. The waffle fries come with and we ordered onion rings which were the best I had ever eaten. I never order onion rings anymore after years of disappointment. I would even come to G&Ms for a beer and the onion rings! I great place to relax with good food at reasonable prices. or you can go more high end for a full dinner but still well priced.

    We liked the menu online and we were going to a show, so thought it would be a nice dinner out. The service was great and the staff very friendly. But, the food was nothing special. If I wanted to go to a place to hang at the bar with some friends, I might go back. But for dinner, probably not. Just not enough flavor in the fish and too much fat in the steak for our tastebuds....

    Food is quite good. Good wine list, not large, but reasonable prices. They also carry Cakebread, etc. for a more upscale wine experience. Service is very young - college students - but eager and attentive. Definitely would go back. Nice atmosphere and a pub type bar - kept nicely separate from the dining. Food has much improved since it first opened. More attantion to detail.
