I attended a birthday celebration at George's that was held in the private group room and it was wonderful. From the delicious horde res, salads, steak, and wine - everything was perfect and the servers were superior. It was an amazing evening.

Been here several times and had good food. Went for anniversary and ordered steaks. Both our steaks were really smoky tasting. Not good. Waitress never came back and asked how our food was, nor refilled drinks. It was a bad experience and we won't be...More

We like to go to George's and the service and food are almost always very good. I do feel like they are pricing a lot of folks out of coming there. The dinning area was only half full tonight. I would hate to see them...More

As a native of Sheffield, of course I've been dining there since George and Vangie were regular fixtures there and we would see their kids helping in the kitchen and dining room. I have been living away from the Shoals for nearly 40 years and...More

We went to George's to get a good meal. Boy, were we disappointed! Start to finish the meal was terrible. The "greek" salad dressing was straight vinegar. Then the tenderloin filet kabob ($26.95) was tough and so full of grisel that you could not cut...More

We went to celebrate my Aunt's 80th. Although they were told it was special, they didn't even have our reservation down. So no acknowledgment was made. The meals are fine. I ordered the filet and it was tasty. My Aunt ordered a small rib eye...More
