Kitchen was remodeling so food was brought in by our group. They do support charitable efforts, big plus for that. Plenty of room to roam about and the sometimes have live entertainment.

Usually mostly empty. But, that means great service. Bartender plays youtube videos. Good place to go when you want to get cozy with someone. Will still visit here on occasion.

Everything was delicious and freshly prepared, from stuffed grapeleaf appetizers and baba ganoush to the vegetarian or meat-based main courses. The spicings...More

George's Tavern has become our regular spot in Racine. Having lived in the middle east I'm somewhat familiar with the cuisine but the difference here is the care & skill. The grilled chicken is wonderfully marinated and caramelized on the fire & seems to be...More

Thanks for asking! I took over ownership of the business on July 1, 2015 from Dave Popoff. We're still George's, upholding all the traditions, and it's still a great place to party. We offer live music 2-3 nights a week, and... More
