Crab cake BLT (special) I took apart the sandwich to eat as crab cake with a side of bacon & lettuce. One of the best crab cakes I have ever eaten. The fried green tomatoes were good too

We have eaten here many times in the past. Their specialty is their fried green beans.. Have never really had anything bad to eat however, recently their health inspections have been low and even low with repeat inspections. Don't know what is going on but hope they get their act together. Went in the other day and left because of... More

A few of my friends and a went today for lunch and we all had a great meal. Two of the girls had never been there before and they were delighted with the food. Everything was hot and fresh when it arrived and the food was delicious. We'll be visiting them again soon

First visit to this restaurant in Gainesville's downtown historic district. The building was one of the few structures remaining after the great 1936 Tornado destroyed most of the city. The service was very good and professional. The menu was definitely upscale pub fare and our meals were excellent. Good wine list and extensive beer selection on tap were a plus.... More

Great food and drinks. We had the meatloaf, shrimp and grits and the best pimento cheese burger ever even came with a fried green tomato on top. The specialty drinks were great. Good prices great service we can not wait to go back.

The food in this place is wonderful. Prices are average for what you get. We got the hamburger and fries. Large portions so we split one order. The waiter was extremely entertaining as well as efficient!

In town on business and staying within walking distance of this restaurant and from the reviews on TripAdviser and the hotel staff decided to mosey over for a late dinner. Since I was alone I decided to sit at the bar and the bartender, Jeremy, made me an awesome Old Fashioned and in between customers also provided me with good... More

By calling themselves a "Southern Gastro Pub" you may get visions of impending indigestion. Not quite so. The food, fish-n-chips and bacon cheeseburgers our favorites, is low priced, pretty good and of generous portion sizes. Smokers can eat outside on the 2 or 3 covered tables. 2 TVs with a sports bar type setting. Servers are polite and check in... More

My wife and I really enjoy this place and go at least once or twice a month--sometimes for a full dinner and other times just for music, drinks and an appetizer. They have a nice variety of food both appetizers and entries with regular daily specials that the chef cooks up. The food portions are nicely prepared, well presented and... More
