“Employees are Thieves”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

what ever you do, do NOT go to the "Clock Family Restaurant" on north main st gainesville. The server claimed that the credit card machine asked for the billing zipcode when she processed the payment, it sounded legit at the time so my friend gave her the zip in very hush tones, my friend was not given back her debit card only the reciept for her signature and didnt realize it until we left, the waitress (Holly) kept the card hoping she wouldnt realize it. who in turn gave it to her bf who used it 2 times with in minutes of receiving. We dids U-turn a few minutes after leaving we she realized the card was missing, when we returned Holly claimed that she did give it back. Also saying my friend must have left it on table or dropped it on the way out. Claiming another customer must have picked it up. On top of that come to find out the only other "customer" there at the time was Holly's boyfriend.

I highly recomend you paying the extra gas to go to either Perkins, Waffle House, IHOP, or Steak n' Shake all of those choices have better food with better prices.

If you have been there you know that their food sux, and is way over priced anyways.

“The BEST DINER in Town”
Reviewed July 20, 2012

My wife and I love this place. We are formerly from New Jersey, and we were both raised in diners. This is as close as it gets to a real diner in Gainesville. The food is great, fast and the service is "diner" style! If you love diners this is the place.

“This location needs better management!”
Reviewed February 19, 2012

Today was a usual busy Sunday, BUT, after 20min 1 of our guests of 5 was served his oatmeal w/the explaination that they just ran out of milk! So, the guest ordered eggs 20 min later we had to leave and no eggs, PLUS at the check out counter, no cashier - another waitress had to handle the register (for several customers) plus her duties. The so called manager who apparently is suspose to "man" the register was once again no where to be seen.....that happens on a frequent occasions.

“Awesome down home cooking.......”
Reviewed June 23, 2009

If you want real country cooking from fried chicken to breakfast, the Clock has it. Wait staff is pretty cool, and go out of their way to make it a great dining experience.
