“Neighborhood place”
Reviewed 27 January 2013

We love the Gyros here. The pizza is bland to our taste but it's hard to find a good Gyro for some reason...

“Great Family Spot”
Reviewed 18 October 2012

We tried George's Vineyard on a recent Friday night when we were in town to visit our son at Carleton. They don't take reservations so we went around 5:15. We had no trouble getting a table, although the place was already busy with big family groups. We haven't tried the other pizza places in Northfield yet, but my son ordered a large cheese pizza and finished it quite happily by himself. It was of the thin crust variety. My husband and I both ordered pasta and ended up switching meals. He had the basil chicken dish and I had the spaghetti with meatballs. We both did a half order which is the way to go unless you have recently completed a triathalon. Huge portions. The dishes were both homey and tasty. They also have gyros and roasted chicken, although most people seemed to be getting pizza and pasta. The desserts don't appear to be homemade, but the peanut butter chocolate pie was still good. The service was fast and our waitress was extremely friendly and efficient. The decor is standard, you will encounter families with small children/crying babies, so I wouldn't pick this for a romantic dinner spot for two. But a perfect option for good, affordable food for families or big groups.

“Good pizza!”

It was great. We enjoyed our meal and the staff was friendly. We only had the pizza but it was great! My daughter and her family live in Northfield and George's is one of their favs.

“Great Service and Above-average Pizza”
Reviewed 13 September 2012

Northfield has several pizza joints that are pretty much the same in most ways (George's, B&L, and Basil's). They are of the Greek pizza variety of restaurants. Greek salad is great. I like George's crusts just slightly better than the others. The service is almost always exceptional and George watches over the restaurant like a hawk. The restaurant is very clean and well-run. At lunch time, they have great personal size pizzas available that are made with real pizza dough (not with a pita like B&L does-yuck). The Greek dressing is slightly too vinegary--makes me cough and choke sometimes, but, the flavor is good.
