We had plans to go to a certain restaurant that day, but they were closed for repairs... I quickly got out my Trip Advisor Ap and found this fantastic little spot... you could tell that it is a favorite among working force close by as the restaurant began to fill up after we got there for lunch. I had the... More

Drinks, filet, shrimp and grits, fried green beans, fried pickles, cheesecake...all of it outstanding! Can't wait to dine again. Great service too! Thank you, Morgan!

Really enjoyed visit to recess. The scallops Anthony were fantastic. The potato chips with blue cheese crumbles were scrumptious. The atmosphere was perfect aside from the many flies which had invaded the building. If not for this annoyance five stars would have been given. Will return however.

Spent the night in Gainesville and walked downtown to the square and ran across this place. Doesn't look like much from the outside but once inside you will love the decor and the food was excellent. Our family got 5 different dishes and everyone was happy. Highly recommend the blackened fish tacos with fried green beans. Service was fast, knowledgable,... More

Found this place on the Trip Advisor site while in the car on a long drive from FL to TN. Stopped in Gainesville GA for the night; did a bit of research on line and this looked really interesting. We showed up sans RSVP; we arrived just in the nick of time because it got packed after we sat down.... More

I attended a business lunch with co-workers here and the food was really good and the service was great. A few of us enjoyed it so much we brought some out of town business guests back for dinner. Dinner was equally good.

My husband and I visited this restaurant with a few other couples. We made reservations a few days before, and we were seated upon arrival the evening of our visit. Even though the restaurant was very busy, our waitress was very friendly and attentive. Our drinks were served shortly after placing the order. We waited an average amount of time... More

We found this spot on the original Square in Gainesville. The building is over 100 years old, beautifully restored. We sat outside enjoying the spring weather and local beers. The menu was varied and offered great options. The restaurant has a larger room for private parties and on Friday and Saturday night it turns into a local hot spot with... More

My wife and I stopped in to have dinner at Re-cess recently. We were promptly greeted by a lovely lady who found us a table by the window. Unfortunately, after being seated, we sat for several minutes before we were acknowledged by anybody else. Finally the guy tending bar noticed that nobody had come over to us and I think... More

After reading reviews of other eating establishments in the nearby area. This one seemed a good fit for our 37th Wedding Anniversary dinner. Not too stuffy or fancy but with a nice location and good reviews. When we called to make a reservation, the staff was welcoming and happy for us. They put us at the best table..( in the... More
