My wife and her friend had dinner at Blue Gill in April. We had driven by the place a couple times and never noticed it was there. Happy we discovered it as our dinner was very good and we will definitely be back. We ordered lots of the small plates and one entree. We started with the fried cauliflower which... More

I went there for lunch and the food was overall good. Some pricey items for a lunch menu, but very tasty. I had a duck risotto dish and although it tasted very good, the meat was a bit stiff and hard to cut. Everybody on our table cleaned their plates!

I ate here for a business lunch while I was in Gainesville - it was planned ahead of time by my lunch companions (for whom this is apparently a staple for this type of luncheon). Please note: I am not a seafood eater (if it lives in the water, it doesn't go in my mouth). Therefore, the menu selections for... More

We had some good food here recently. I had the Black-eyed Greek salad, and my husband had the Caesar salad. Both very quite fresh and very generous in size. We split the burger which was quite good. My husband was impressed with the beer-on-tap selection. The by-the-glass wine selection was not very extensive. The restaurant became very loud as more... More

Rather than go the corporate chain (Outback/Bonefish, etc) we reviewed some local places on Tripadvisor and decided on Blue Gill, based on the good reviews. Though the interior was industrial and quite appealing to us, that's about all that was interesting. Disappointed in not only service, but portion ( advise an appetizer and perhaps a salad as to not walk... More

I took some neighbors here last night and even though it is less than a mile from our houses they had not heard of it or seen it. They approached the menu with some concern, saying that they had never seen some of the items offered. I prevailed on them to give it a try and when the food came... More

The restaurant is located on the commercial side of a Shands parking garage. Despite that, the internal ambience is very nice. The service is very good and the waiters make you very comfortable. The food is very good, made with care and with good ingredients, nice flavors too. I didn't care much about the cocktails, a bit too sweet for... More

Good collards, ok Mac n cheese, great fried chicken, great cornbread, great brisket(pot roast style), good fried chocolate pie, ok service from a young staff and ok decor in this gem in Gainesville, Florida. It truly is Son of Mildred's without the fancy dishes but with much more room. Parking after 4:30 is free in the lot on top.
