I visited on a Saturday night a few minutes before it opened at 5pm, and there were already a bunch of people waiting. We were seated right away, and our server was very attentive and helpful.

When friends come through Gainesville, we're always worried about where to take them for a nice meal. We're concerned that the food at any one restaurant will be of only one specific variety. At The Top you can always count on having a wonderful meal chosen from an ambitious eclectic menu. There is food for almost any taste. They pay... More

The Top has been a favorite of ours for many many years. It has great food with choices for the most picky of eaters. They have a broad menu with many ingredients local sourced and do a great job. The menu has daily specials that are well worth considering. The corn nuggets are a local icon! Burgers are great as... More

I have gone to the Top several times, but this particular time a roach Crawled on my shoulder and I flung it on the table and one of my friends hit it with a menu. We told the waiter "we were a party of six and had ordered drinks and entree". The waiter apologized and took $3:00 off our bill.... More

Long waits, stuck up attitude by front staff. Great back staff. Great food if you order correctly. Their signature burger was dry and grey even though I ordered medium rare, their hog fish was too salty and unimaginative. The ravioli, filet and chicken were liked. Fun drinks at bar.

Great atmosphere and eclectic food for all tastes. Burgers and specials with focus on local "farm to table" emphasis.
