A very Hip place with great food and a great selection of food. But it can be extremely loud so it is difficult to try to converse. Love to go there, especially for the food. Everyone loves to go there, which makes it noisy. It...More

This is a place you have to try in Gainesville. With a constantly rotating tap list, specials, and cool atmosphere, this eclectic joint is one of the "it" paces of downtown. ATMOSPHERE: Inside and outside seating, plants, good furniture, good layout. MENU: Awesome burgers, big...More

One of my favorite menus in town. Lots of options for all. I love best their Pecan Crusted Tofu (with a rosemary shiitaki mushroom and brandy cream sauce), served over garlic mashed potatoes and with steamed broccoli. What? That doesn’t stimulate your palate? No worries....More

The food was excellent and there were a couple of vegan options, including dessert. However, there was a huge line to be seated (1,5h). It was worth the wait, though.

Had a great time. Service and food and drinks were great. Music too loud had to shout at the table. It will return. A must if visiting Gainesville

Do not be intimidated by the line outside the restaurant during dining hours! We were able to get a table in a reasonable amount of time and enjoyed the outside seating area in the back. Loved the burgers and the local brew list.

This always busy bar and grill provides excellent food and drink in the downtown scene. Always fresh ingredients and a rotating page of daily specials adds to a broad food menu. Dozens of beers on tap and a full bar. Worth the usual wait.

Always great food but the drinks was a little on the shy side. But overall a good experience with the food. Gotta get there early as they are in demand and it could be a wait to get seated. A lively atmosphere for sure. Haven’t...More
