Ambience, service & food/drinks are top notch. Though I have not yet, I look forward to trying their dinner menu...if anything like brunch, I can't imagine not loving it.

They managed their reservations well, and the food was great too (as was the bottomless mimosas and bloody marys). The young woman playing the piano provided perfect background music, and my mother had a great brunch.

Last night the low ceilinged, hard surfaced dining room had live jazz. The music was fine but too harsh and loud for the room & for dining. If you came for music & sat at the bar it might have been a good experience. If you wished to talk: good luck. How loud was the music? My ears still hurt.

The martini was delicious and to top off the meal the the ice cream sundae was was as retro and delicious as the good ole days!!! The service was outstanding!! Making sure our every want was met!! We absolutely can’t wait to go back!!!!!

The singer was very talented, but played slow (borderline depressing) singer/songwriter covers and maybe originals? Regardless, it was not the standards I expected, which also would have played to the vintage theme of the room better. The food was decent and plated nicely. For $35 including bottomless bloodies and mimosas I can’t really complain. They weren’t busy, but it did take a while to get a 2nd cup of coffee. TLDR: If you’re in the area and you want a reasonable priced boozy brunch where you can get a big table without a wait George’s is perfect

Nope, we were literally the only people there until 2pm! And by then only 4 more people arrived. We had a solo singer with piano as entertainment and her voice was lovely, but she didn’t play any jazz? She played her renditions of pop songs (which were great) but if you’re looking for live jazz music-none to be found. Food was good (had the fried chicken n waffles) and service was great. Nice that mimosas and bloodys were unlimited. The restaurant is beautiful, but it would be a much better experience with more patrons!
