Been there twice within a few months with a large group. Food can be pretty good but some appetizers and entrees were so so. Parking can be a challenge since your fighting for space with a fitness gym and hospital employee parking

I can't say anything bad about this place. You have to go. They make classic southern dishes with a modern twist. The blue gill burger is awesome as is the pork sandwich. The fried pie is amazing. When they have fish, it's really good. I take my foodie friends there and they all love it.

Despite the glowing reviews and encouragement of friends, it still took us awhile to check this place out! Don't be swayed by the fact that it is in a parking structure - it's great! The decor is modern but comfortable. Very friendly staff. Great bourbon/whiskey list!! The food was very creative and delicious. They have multiple limited specials per night... More

Walking into this restaurant reminds me of walking into restaurants in the Loft District of St. Louis. Very high ceilings. Artsy, yet sparse, decorations...and a downtown feel. It felt like home! We were in an appetizer mood so we went with four of them: Shrimp and grits; fried cauliflower with peanuts and bacon; fried green tomatoes with smokey bacon dressing... More

Blue Gill has one of the best bourbon selections in Gainesville. The food is always fresh and they usually have a few specials on the menu that are great. I will certainly continue to eat at Blue Gill as long as I'm living here.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Gainesville. They have something for everyone (land, sea or veggie). They will work with you to accommodate special dietary needs. They offer a ton of specials based off of fresh local foods and it changes regularly. The atmosphere nice and clean. There is also a private dining room for larger parties. We... More

Went with a coworker for dinner while in town for work. We had the wine specials and the fried okra appetizer special. I am a fried okra snob, and this okra was excellent. I also had the roasted chicken with veggies and mac and cheese. I couldn't finish it all but I wanted to because it was so good. Our... More

One of the best meals we had in a long time! The food is extremely fresh and they served a lot of local Florida foods. The menu is unique to say the least. We started with the tongue and cheek appetizer which was out of this world! You must try it!!!! We also had the devil crab cakes, the braised... More

We had our sons rehearsal dinner here and it was a huge success. The price. Was reasonable, the food was excellent and the service was sublime. We would highly recommend Blue Gill for an evening out or for a party of 50 people.
