Gainesville’s “Top” Restaurant: The Top in Downtown Gainesville

If you’re looking for a great meal in downtown Gainesville, The Top is one of the best places to go.  The menu has plenty of options for anyone.  The menu has something for everyone, including a great selection for vegans and vegetarians.  The ingredients are sourced locally whenever possible, and the sweet potato fries dipped in garlic ranch are not to be missed.  There is a great selection of beers on tap, and its a great place to go and hang out with friends even if you don’t plan on eating anything. 

 The service can be slow, and because the restaurant is so popular, there is ususally a wait time for tables, so don’t plan on going to The Top if you’re in a hurry.  However, don’t let the wait times deter you, they have  a back patio bar that is a great place to pass the time until your table is ready.  They are open for dinner Tuesday – Saturday from 5pm – 2am, and on Sundays for brunch from 11am – 2pm.  The Top is 21 and up past 10:30 pm.  For more information see their website.
