Fun spot right downtown. Friday night is band night in the second room. The place was packed, but the service kept up with it nicely. The food was an excellent surprise for this small town restaurant. Love those fried green tomatoes.

First time in Gainesville. Recess was very close to our hotel so we chose it. A great choice! The place was very busy on Sat. Night but we got a table quickly. Great service and beer selection. Very interesting and tasty food. A good mix of young and older people having a fun time. We will be back .

It's hard to beat this little place in the historic downtown area. It's a lively place with a good beer selection but the food takes priority here. The menu has a good variety, everyone in our party was served something that looked great and tasted better.

Re-cess is located just off the square in Gainesville so it's easy to get to and there's plenty of parking around, at least on weekends. The menu is fairly creative, very creative for Gainesville but the best part is the atmosphere. Very urban but still comfortable.

Inattentive service caused the pub to miss an excellent rating. Our server had a hard time remembering our requests and was slow to bring our cocktails. On the gastronomical side, the food was excellent. The ahi tuna was flavorful and nicely appointed. The raspberry chipotle sauce was an awesome dip for the fried Gouda and the crag cakes were moist and tasty. I would definitely return but would need to ride herd on my server. The other negative was the music volume which was quite loud and caused the patronage to converse loudly.
