    Great BBQ and glass of wine. Loved share plate for two. Great service, quiet and friendly. We like the local vibe. Music was relaxing and not nasty loud heavy beat of other venues but still contemporary. We will be back.

    The quality of the menu and the food was excellent. The service at the George was great and the outside courtyard is a fabulous spot. However the toilets needed a good clean.

    Happy with the food. Service was generally great, up until the person who took our lunch orders forgot to put the order through, and it was half hour before we queried it, and another 15 minutes before a rushed order which was then put through, eventuated. Staff were very apologetic - just a bad day. Generally, food and atmosphere are good. I'd go back again. Enjoyed staying for a longer lunch anyhow!

    We were told several times the kitchen was in 'transition' so there was no fish or steak on the menu. This left two burgers and a chicken parma and a summer salad. Clearly, the chef has walked out on them and they are now in disarray. Ordered a bottle of wine but only got a glass. They then bought a bottle on request. When we got the bill, the bottle of wine was missing so we had to correct it for them. The staff aren't communicating clearly, and have lots of issues. This place was a favourite of ours, we visit regularly, but we have been up off by this last experience. Hopefully, they can get their act together or they won't survive.

    Obviously Chef issues because the dine in menu was like a starter menu. They actually managed to stuff up a parma which is bad in itself. Massive staff turnover obviously the issue here and poor chef if they actually had one.

    Always our favourite local! Bonus is that it has areas where we can sit with our dog! Super friendly staff where you feel like you know everyone! Food is delicious especially from the smoker!

    We booked here a couple of weeks ago for December 29 after coming here once before. We got there and were told they had a reduced menu - only about 5 items on it. We should’ve been told up front about this as the menu was ridiculously tiny and had little choice.. We paid 35 dollars for. Charcuterie plate with old cheese, nuts and a few olives - a complete rip off. The burgers were dry and had obviously been frozen. They were awful. Service from our Estonian server was lovely but the food was crap. Then we were slugged with a surcharge we weren’t told about. Never again! Our local pub but really terrible food and a waste of time and money. So disappointed.

    Where there to have lunch with my daughter for Christmas who is a vegetarian. Well aware there were limited options. Couldn’t get eggplant burger as Unavailable. Offered vegetarian option of tacos, only to be told can’t to that either. Only other option was beetroot salad which is not everyone’s cup of tea. She had to settle on a bowl of chips. Not good enough. Understand it was Christmas Eve and kitchen may not have been stocked but a bowl of chips for a special occasion.

    The service and staff here are awesome! Good bar and drinks on tap. The food is average and over price point. Disappointed in the classic parma

    We had a lovely meal here just last month so decided to return with friends however it was a very different experience this time. One after another staff member came to take our drinks order but but no one came back to take our dinner order. We eventually had to seek out a staff member at the bar to order our food. Being a Monday night, the place wasn’t even half full. All four of us ordered the Eye fillet; all requesting medium-rare. The four steaks came out medium to medium-well done and the accompanying chips were lukewarm. There are other better options available in the South Melbourne area.

    Booked a table, as it is few days before Christmas and I visited with a friend who is vision impaired and can only walk slowly. On arrival our booking was found and the waitress stormed of to show the table. Too fast to follow, I was sure, she would return. She did and mentioned that people tell her she is running too fast. Awkward! Maybe a bit of training would go a long way! The table was a high table with barstools in the courtyard - without a “reserved” sign. Asked for a lower table and chairs, we were shown a bench. Asked to be seated inside and on chairs- and they showed us the way. It was empty and half full when we left. No table reserved. Not sure what this was all about. Chicken Parma was great, but there is not much of a healthier choice. Had the salad - but they had run out of the smoked chicken. In summary: food had been okay, but the “welcome”wasn’t welcoming at all.

    It was ok. The gluten free burger bun was really soft and nice. Unfortunately our table was not ready for our large group when we arrived,despite booking prior. I would return.

    Great outdoor area looks like they have opened up the place and it has lovely atmosphere. Would recommend for a large group of friends. I would go back again for the cheeseburger!

    I’ve been here a few times before and loved it. The food tonight was delicious! However after ordering our first drink, it was 90 mins before we could order food and that was after begging x2 people. Food was brought out, but not cutlery and we never got asked again if we wanted any more drinks. Kept having to beg for service. Lucky the food tasted so good and the outdoor garden was so lovely.

    Will definitely be returning, the food, atmosphere and service was great. Feels like you’re in a country pub right in the city. We’ll be taking our sons there for a fun afternoon at the long table.
