“What a meal! (And a deal!)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

We stopped here for brunch as we pulled into Athens thanks to the Trip Advisor reviews. We had the stuffed eggplant & crawfish étouffée and key lime pie. All completely delicious and bargains given the prices/serving sizes. Can't wait to eat here again (we're already considering coming back for dinner).

“Please don't tell anyone how good it is”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2014

I am going to have to call this the best in Athens, at least for locals who want really good food at a decent price. I am hesitant to give a really glowing review for fear that it will become crowded or the good business model might change. Anyway, it is a good, simple-without-being-boring menu, and the big bonus of not having to fight for parking, like the downtown places. Food is really fresh and atmosphere (at least on a Thursday night) very pleasant. We went here shortly after they opened for a Sunday brunch and found it just so-so, but have been back two or three times on a weekday evening and everything has been way better, at a more reasonable price, than the other highly rated places in town. DISCLAIMER: Do not assume any Athens, GA reviews are valid during UGA home football games, or any other scheduling anomalies due to the university scheduling!

“Great Étouffée”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

Located just off the 10 Loop in a small shopping center on South Milledge Avenue in Athens, GA, George's might be overlooked. If you did, you'd be missing one of the best low country meals to be had in Athens. Nice little bar that has become something of an "end of the day" waterhole for a small group of locals. The menu is not an extensive one, but every dish I've ever ordered at George's has been well prepared from fresh ingredients and beautifully presented - my "go to" dish is the Crawfish Étouffée and I highly recommend it. If there's such a thing as low country comfort food, this is it. Great food, good bar, attentive staff and a decent wine list. And the small cheese biscuits served at the beginning of the meal defy description.

“Excellent staff and good food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2014

We frequent George's because the food is terrific and the staff are always welcoming. Mainstays are: fried shrimp, includes potatoes and a corn-tomato side dish; crawfish Étouffée, with rice; excellent crab cakes; and redfish (or similar) with Étouffée topping. All are accompanied by cheese biscuits and a nice side salad. For excellent cuisine, the prices are very reasonable. We particularly like George's for special occasions.

Jermaine is a special waiter and we are always happy when he greets us and comes to our table.
