“Good atmosphere, great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014

I recently hosted a meeting with 25 people and brought them here for dinner. Ginger was a HUGE help planning with me and the service staff members were excellent! The food was very good and I would certainly recommend this place for groups and for grabbing a dinner on your own. Highly recommend.

“Great Local Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2014

Nappy's is a great local restaurant. I have been coming here for years since my Children were very small. I always like to try new places but whenever I am in Gainesville I seem to head back to this local landmark. I think the reason is simple, they serve outstanding food at a great price! The service and atmosphere are top notch. It is a fun place to enjoy a meal with family or friends. This is a "Go To" restaurant in Gainesville and I would recommend this fine establishment to anyone.
