George’s Place

George’s Place (Cape May)

George’s Place falls into the gray areas of dines. Is it a diner? A restaurant? There are many conflicting opinions about it. A couple of weeks ago my husband and I flew down to Cape May.  While walking around in Cape May, we realized we were hungry.  George’s Place has been on my to-do list for a while.  Guy from Food Network recently and loved it.  Spoiler: it’s worth going too.

George’s Place Atmosphere: B
Georges Place is located on the corner in Cape May.  Cape Mat downtown is cute with plenty of local shops and restaurants. To be honest, there is not a lot to indicate the restaurant is there.  In fact, we walked right by twice before realizing it was there.

The inside of George’s Place is clean, and there are about ten seats.  I like it because despite George’s Place being small, you aren’t sitting on top of anyone.  In some diners and restaurants, you feel as though you are dining with ten strangers.

George’s Place Service: A
The waitress at George’s Place was extremely friendly.  After ordering, I decided I wanted extra pita bread, and she was more than accommodating.

George’s Place Food: A
George’s Place menu has breakfast, lunch and dinner. However, they close from 3-5.  They are well known for their breakfast specialties like their waffles, hash browns, and french toast. I want to go back sometime for breakfast.

Their menu is strictly Greek Specialties.  Greek food is one of my favorite choices at a diner so I was excited to try it out.

We chose the “hummos sampler”  It came with four types of hummus.  I’m not typically a hummus fan, but each flavor was delicious.  Since the pita bread was so good, I decided to order more with my meal.

George’s place specializes in Greek Food, and that’s all they have.  I ordered the lamb chops which came with orzo and a side Greek salad.  The lamb chops were cooked to perfection.  The Orzo was cooked in a thick Greek flavored sauce which was tasty. The side salad was bigger than the size of many entree salads I’ve ordered.  Very few meals have left me as full as this one.

George’s Place Price: $$
For the appetizer and lamb chops, the price was $30. The meal was well worth it, and the quality of food is the best I’ve had for a while. It’s important to note, George’s Place is a cash-only restaurant.  There are several ATMs in Cape May located nearby.

Would I come back/Summary of George’s Place (Cape May):
Georges Place is one of my top five diners, and I’ll be back next time in Cape May. If you are ever in Cape May or take the Lewes Ferry, I suggest making the stop.

ETA: I’ve been back to George’s Place several times and always had a pleasant meal.

  1. I LOVE Greek food so that’s my kind of place! Feta is one of my top favorite ingredients ever, haha. That place sounds good. Good luck on the race!

    I’ve been to a few celebrity chef restaurants and they’ve all been good!
