If you like red meat, and you're ready for some hedonistic culinary indulgence, Mark's US Prime is THE place to go in Gainesville. It's a classic steak house along the lines of a Morton's or Ruth's Chris, with prices to match. Tender, juicy steaks on a sizzling plate of butter are the star, and everything else is secondary - and a la carte. The sides are simply prepared and large enough to share. The wine list is extensive, and very impressive by Gainesville standards. Service is efficient and unobtrusive. For special occasions or when dining to impress, Mark's is usually my first choice.
