Tried this restaurant for the first time as I was looking for authentic Greek food. The menu has a great mix of all kinds of offerings. The soup was amazing. Portions were large and I think the price was reasonable. Good find, would recommend hands down

I surprised my husband by going to Yorgos for an anniversary dinner, we had the entire upstairs to ourselves, there was seating outside, but we decided to stay in. Our waiter/bartender was phenomenal and did not rush us a bit. We had excellent drinks, a caesar salad, I had the special Chilean sea bass and my husband had the special seafood, which consisted of lobster, shrimp and crab legs. Everything was amazing and trust me, we are foodies. One of our favorite places and highly recommend for a fabulous dinner.

Trying to find a place for breakfast on a Sunday in the time of COVID can be difficult. We didn't make reservations at the many choices in downtown Lancaster. We found Yorgos on OpenTable, reviewed their breakfast selection and made a reservation at 11:00 am. I even went to their website to make sure they had breakfast and there were no notes otherwise.
However, when we arrived, the breakfast "served until 1:00 pm" was not to be. Only the Western Omelet was their breakfast offering. We both ordered the omelet and it definitely satisfied our breakfast cravings. It would have been nice to have known via their website or OpenTable listing being updated. But the waitress was really nice and we were well taken care of. I really want to try their breakfast when this is over.....

Server was friendly but was on a part of the deck that was not sunny and that was a bummer. Drinks were expensive...Mac and cheese tasted like weird Alfredo but the spanakopita was amazing as always!

What an amazing evening at Yorgos! The food was incredibly delicious with wonderful choices on the menu. We selected the moussaka and the sea bass Mediterranean and loved both dishes. The wait staff was attentive, friendly, and well acquainted with the menu. As we were finishing our meal, we were asking ourselves why we had not been there before. So many missed opportunities. We will be back!

We were moved to the second floor dining room which was a very nice atmosphere. Lower priced options in addition to top of the line entrees. We could all find something appealing. There was a young man who was playing the saxophone and took anything by request. He was AWESOME and really set a fun atmosphere for our evening

Average American/Greek lunch menu in a bar/pub setting downtown. Service was good, although the waitress didn’t really seem to know much about the menu options. Salads were fresh. Gyro and souvlakia meat was overcooked, dry and likely frozen.

This was our first BUT not last visit to Yorgos Restaurant. We got there early for our reservation but were seated anyway on a Friday night. The food was excellent. If you are looking for something different or crave real Greek food made on premises I highly recommend this establishment. Everything about our visit was perfect from the greeter who asked what kind of atmosphere we would like to eat in, the first floor area where there is a bar and more noisy or the second floor where it is more quiet and intimate. NOTE there is an elevator for those who need to use one. We chose the second floor and were not disappointed. Our waiter was very attentive and not overbearing. He explained some of the dishes but did not recommend anything. There is a bar on the second floor as well but for people who want a quieter place to meet over a few drinks or wait for a table. Even the bathrooms were clean and well stocked.
I give this place a 5 on stars and will return.

Yorgos is a great place to have a good meal and a few drinks with friends. I can only speak about the street level restaurant/bar but I know there are other finer dining opportunities upstairs. I highly recommend Yorgos!

The lobster pasta dish was amazing! I would travel back to Lancaster just for that dish. The Kefi dining room was spacious and not crowded for our early supper on Saturday. I enjoyed this dining experience very much and look forward to returning in the near future.

Dropped in to Yorgos for dinner around 7pm on a Sunday night while staying in Lancaster, PA for a weekend getaway... The place was busy and had a nice, tavern/pub vibe. The waitstaff, Angelina, in particular, was awesome. She answered our questions about some of the menu items and made some great suggestions. The bartender poured a mean drink, and the gentleman who seated us came by to ask if everything was good. We didn't feel rushed at all, enjoyed some fabulous food, and some nicely priced drink specials. If we lived in the vicinity, we'd definitely eat here often. The food was homemade and delicious, and the waitstaff were welcoming and attentive without being overbearing. Try this place!
