Nice selection of food, fitting most tastes. Seafood, meats ... What you would expect. Food was well prepared and nicely presented. Restaurant seats a reasonable qty of diners, we did not have a wait to eat. Only negative was a waiter that really did not have act together. Failed to deliver 1 appetizer, not on top of silverware needs, drinks,... More

Enjoyed a nice dinner with friends. First enjoying martinis and appetizer. The filet was very tender but was not cooked as requested. I sent it back and it came back perfect. The salmon was incredible and cooked to perfection. The waitress was very attentive. She was perfect to let us talk but didn't let us stall too long. We drove... More

If you're looking for a step up from the usual Chilis/Applebees or fast food places, try this great little place off the square in Gainesville. I ate there yesterday for the second time and was really pleased. First time I went I had the bleu cheese hamburger and it was delicious. Yesterday I had the chicken fingers and they were... More

We've visited the restaurant a couple do times. Food was really good, especially the fish tacos. We've tried several appetizers and they all were really good. Service is a always efficient and the food arrives soon after ordered.

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.
