Anyone know of a place with good food and great service in GAINESVILLE, FL - near N. Main St.?


I'm looking for a local upscale but not too upscale (no chains) restaurant with excellent service as close as possible to the following address:

1900 N. Main St., Gainesville, FL 32609

I would like to give a gift certificate. Food type might be continental, American or Italian? Maybe a delicious steak house?

If anyone can help it will be greatly appreciated.

  1. Not sure of proximity, but Paramount Grill is downtown and excellent. As far from a chain as possible. You will not go wrong. Also excellent, on the way into town from I-75, but near downtown is Mildred's Big City Food. They have a website. Just type that into google. Excellent food there as well

      Thanks so much for your suggestions. I'll check them out.

    2. Probably best steakhouse is Mark's US Prime downtown, but it is several notches below a Morton's or Capital Grille in my opinion

      1. I like Steve's Cafe Americain downtown (I like Mildred's too). Robyn
