About George's Greek Cafe - Pine Street

George's Greek Cafe is a favorite place in Long Beach for authentic Greek food that is both flavorful as well as made with top-quality, local produce. For a truly tantalizing starter, enjoy one of George’s dips, served with pita bread or sliced cucumbers, such as the spicy feta with Greek yogurt, the traditional hummus and the lemony mashed potato scordalia. Fully customizable salads and luscious homemade soups are other great starters, or they can make a wonderful lunch combo. Specialty house entrées include the spinach and feta stuffed salmon, the falafel bean burger with onions and tomato and the spiced ground beef and eggplant moussaka in a creamy sauce. No matter your selection, you can taste the Mediterranean passion in every dish at George’s Greek Cafe.

George’s Greek Cafe also hosts nightly happy hour from 3-7, with fantastic deals on both drinks and food.

Extremely fast service! Food was delicious and met all of our different dietary needs-meat eaters, vegans, and vegetarian. Falafels were so moist and tasty. Hummus, dolmas, tzatziki, and pita were all perfect! Pastitsio was creamy and they gyros were very good!

Not available via OpenTable!
Great place... only one (big) problem: George's has not accepted OpenTable reservations since early 2017. When I got to the desk on Monday June 26, 2017 with my group of 4 for a business dinner at 7:00pm, the Maitresse 'D informed me the restaurant was completely booked, for the entire night, and I did not in fact have a reservation of any kind.
This, in spite of the confirming reservation via OpenTable the day before. She explained they (now) only accept reservations via Yelp. While this was extremely annoying, I went back with another group the following night after making a reservation in person.
Terrific food, great atmosphere and a solid value, but not available via OpenTable. OpenTable is really fouled up here. OpenTable DOES NOT have the ability to commit reservations for George's, even though both the OpenTable website and app says they do.

 (Miami)·Dined on January 31, 2016

Pleasant dinner with girlfriend - meze style starter followed by lamb gyros. Cocktails were excellent as were the lamb chops which we added to the starter. Service was also very good despite the restaurant being very busy. The only negative was that they had music in the bar and different music in the restaurant at equal volume - having a different tune in each ear is really irritating.

What a wonderful restaurant! The service was perfect: our server, Erin, never rushed us, made some great suggestions about what to order, and was just delightful. The food was yummy. The Mediterranean salad was very fresh, with kale, shaved brussel sprouts, feta and more. Everyone raved about the lamb chops, which can be ordered as an appetizer, main dish or added to a salad. Don't miss the hummus appetizer with warm pita bread. We dined on a Saturday and the $5 bloody marys were incredible. Highly recommend and we'll be back.

The food was average. The chicken on the salad was almost inedible. The salads were otherwise the highlight of the meal. The filet mignon was good except for one piece which was full of gristle. The lamb chops were decent not great...and the chicken sandwich was mediocre. A glass of water spilled as we were trying to make room for an appetizer. The server bringing the appetizer, who was not our primary server, was rushed and couldn't be bothered to help us clean up the mess. She had to move on...

George's is always good for a group dinner. We went on a weekday so it was not too crowded or loud. We had a group of 10, so we ordered family style and the food was amazing as usual. They even accommodated our request for an alternative menu item. Our only complaint would be there were not enough lamb chops!

RIght on the busy Pine Street we had a front row view to people-watch, but the food was the highlight - delicious fresh stuffed salmon over a Greek salad a perfect warm night dish. The flaming cheese gave a little flare to the evening. Treat yourself and enjoy the fresh and tasty food.

George's has been a staple in my diet for many years. My favorite dish being their stuffed salmon with their traditional Greek Salad. The salad dressing is so addictive and I am so thankful I can buy a bottle to have on hand. Their savory Gyro meat is unlike any other along with their homemade tzaziki sauce.
However, I would make a recommendation on adding pizazz to the kale salad. Since there are raisins on it, there needs to be a theme of some more sweetness. I've gotten this salad to go and added beets, tomatoes, and avocados, even cucumbers and it is a thousand times better. The beets and avocado are the perfect compliment to the pumpkin seeds and raisins.

A little change will liven the menu up and enhance the flavor of the salad.

We love Greek food and wanted to try something new. George's received high ratings on Yelp so we decided to give it a try. I love the outside seating are and with the window and doors open, you can sit inside and feel like it is outside.

The food was just okay. I was expecting more based on the ratings. although my wife's shrimp dish had more flavor than my Chicken dish, I was hoping for more of a flavor profile as I've had before at other restaurants and in Greece itself.

We were met so warmly at the door by George himself and ushered to a lovely outside dining area. We ordered lamb/beef gyros with Greek salad and were blown away bythe fabulous seasonings and large portions. It was such a nice eating experience (and very affordable) that we chose to eat here again during our week in Long Beach for a conference.. If we lived nearby, this would definitely be on our list of places to go back to regularly. Brought back great memories of having traveled in Greece. Efcharisto George!
