It’s no easy feat to become a favourite local restaurant, but George’s has managed to carve itself a unique niche within the dining industry. With a prime location in town and commanding impressive views over the foreshore and beach, it’s little wonder why both locals, holidaymakers and day-trippers love to visit this welcoming restaurant.

Open year-round, George’s Restaurant caters to a large and diverse customer base from Australia and afar, with diners flocking to the largest restaurant of its kind on the iconic Great Ocean Road. We’ve all been there – you’re exploring the great outdoors of Australia but the local cafe is only open from 9-2 – at George’s, they not only trade 7 days a week with comfortable hours that accommodate brunch, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner and beyond.  With such a substantial dining capacity, it’s also the go-to destination for large bus and tourist groups heading towards the Twelve Apostles.

If taken up, this development would provide the future owner with an additional food and drink service area with stunning views of the Bass Strait, Apollo Bay Harbour, and surrounding hills. Additionally, the existing building features two three-bedroom units at the rear, providing more revenue streams and accommodation options for customers who just can’t get enough of the locale.

Reviews of George’s Restaurant include the phrases, “Sensational for every little bite”, and “The best burgers and pizzas around!” With a cleverly-curated menu of comfort foods, fan favourites and something for all ages, the business continues to generate strong returns with it’s current owner-operator model.
