This place is a Centerville institution. The steaks, grilled chicken and the like are very good. The grilled chicken is a great light option, with a very tasty marinade and cooked perfectly. The fried chicken is also well done, with a crispy skin and juicy on the inside while still being very hot. The pizza is honestly not my favorite. The sauce is a bit bland and the crust seems undercooked the several times I've had it, but I have relatives that really like that style, so are big fans. They certainly don't skimp on the toppings! As far as price, they are very reasonable with lots of options. When I have friends or relatives come in from big cities, they are shocked at the low prices on the steaks. They also come with sides, usually a potato, a salad and bread. A decent-to-good selection of beer, wine and other drinks, again at very reasonable prices.

We went for a special night out and we were not disappointed. We both had steak and they were delicious! Their pizza is also delicious. Nice new remodel on the place as well. All in all... Wonderful Birthday night!

Wow this place was packed during a bike night on the square. We walked in with a party of 7 waited less then 5 minutes to be seated,got drink very quickly service was outstanding. Ordered our food three pizza and apps all came out as it should have hot ready and with a smile (even while being slammed). I cannot say enough about how good the pizza was. I live an hour away and will make the drive to try more of there dishes. The building and atmosphere where second to none. For two people that eat out almost every meal take my word for you will not be disappointed with your experience. Thank you all for making out first trip to Centerville very well worth it. Chuck Long

Fifty years of great local food

George & Nick's Pizza & Steakhouse has a long tradition of being owned and managed by immigrants.  The first owner, a Greek immigrant named Paul, opened several restaurants throughout the area and proceeded to sell them to other immigrants, spreading the fortune throughout his community.  

In 1981, George Mihalopoulos and Nick Papagiorgio bought what was then known as John's Pizza and Steakhouse (having been known, throughout the years, as Paul's, and then Diamond's, Pizza and Steakhouse).  As was tradition, the restaurant was renamed after the new owners.  

In 2009, Jeff Burns and Tom Nikas broke that tradition ("Tom and Jeff's doesn't sound good, anyway," Tom says) upon buying the business, sticking with George & Nick's despite both previous owners retiring.  

After a dramatic remodel between 2016 and 2017, the restaurant has nearly tripled in size and doubled in staff.  While the menu has stayed largely the same - still consisting of hand-cut steaks, made-from-scratch pizza, and Iowa favorites like hand-breaded tenderloins - we've also added a selection of dinner salads and innovative new pizzas.  

George & Nick's is open seven days a week and is now fully capable of hosting large groups and parties.  Call ahead to make reservations for groups of ten or more!   PLEASE NOTE: Due to our very high volume on weekends (Friday & Saturday), we cannot guarantee placement of a party of twenty or more between the hours of 6:00 and 8:00.
