Likely the best steak any where around. Special rib eye is to die for. Red snapper grilled was perfect. Impeccable service. Always special dinner.

Upfront the waittress tells you Georges has been cooking steaks for sixty years, wood fired, hickory smoked. They have seafood and chicken, but...I've eaten the best steaks in Omaha, Chris Ruth's steak house and the Palm in DC. Okay, let's see what you got. They...More

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.

High expectations and very disappointed! First and last time I'll ever visit the PIT. Dining room was old, dark, and depressing. There are NO windows in this building. I've had better steak at Texas Road House, for half the price. My Fiancée ordered Jumbo fantail...More

This steakhouse is a local favorite and is on par with some of the finer steakhouses outside of the area. The steaks, chicken, pork, and fish are grilled in an open pit over hickory logs (if you don't like a smoky flavor, then choose another...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
