It was actually in 2011 or 2012, I went out for my birthday. I ordered a chicken meal and was told they were out of it. The waitress recommended a "special" they were having on a new York strip steak. I said yes, as it is one of my favorites. I did not ask the price and she said it... More

The building is very nicely decorated and inviting when you enter and are seated. We were seated quickly as we came before the evening dinner rush arrived. No complaints about that. Our problems with Re-cess began when our server came to the table. The check said her name was Samantha, and she was one of the worst (least attentive and... More

Re-cess is my husband and my favorite restaurant in Gainesville. The food is very flavorful and the wait staff is always friendly. We usually sit at the bar and enjoy good conversation with both the bartender and other patrons at the bar. My fav drink is the Moscow Mule! Highly recommend Re-cess!

Went to RE-CESS tonight and it was so good. I had blacked fish tacos and fried green tomatoes’ I will have to say I have had a lot of tacos and by far these are the best I’ve had. The green tomatoes were very crispy. My husband had the fish and chips and he could not get enough. They were... More

I had dinner here with family and started with a jalapeño margarita. It was spicy and refreshing. Everything we ordered was delicious and perfectly cooked. I recommend this place if your looking for a mid-priced restaurant that isn't a chain, but is consistently good. There isn't a ton of seating and parking can be limited downtown. If your taking a...

They bill themselves as a "Gastro Pub" but that is just a trendy name they picked. Typical burgers and freezer to fryer food here. A couple of lame salads will not satisfy the vegetarian with you. Probably a good college bar scene in the evenings where food is secondary.

I've now eaten here twice I've had a steak and a burger and both were perfect. The burger I had was the "Pim" - a burger with pimento cheese, bacon jelly that is their own creation, and a fried green tomato. The server recommended a craft beer that went perfect with my meal. This is a laid back place with... More

Love Re-cess! We stumbled on this place last fall during an overnight trip to Gainesville, and have been back two more times. Excellent food (we have tried the shrimp & grits, the meatloaf, pork chops and fish & chips, all were great)! They also have interesting beers on tap. On Saturday nights, they have live music on one side of... More
