Garlic cheesy bread and Caesar salad were good. The lasagna and meatballs were just okay. The marinara sauce was good! The atmosphere was unpleasant as the manager/owner (not sure which) was providing loud, unpleasant feedback to his servers in front of all of the customers.

Self serve frozen desserts paid for by weight, fifty four cents an ounce.
This is truly a one of a kind small town local owned and operated ice cream store. They sell by weight and have a selection that changes on a regular basis of frozen yogurt, ice cream, and custard. This has become one of my favorite places! We love loading up our cups with the frozen yogurt and the toppings are also excellent! They have almost any topping you could want for your frozen treat.

Even with the negative reviews, this place was recommended to us so we decided to try it out. Well, we didn't get to. We walked in and stood there for 15 minutes while the counter person helped one person. There were people in the back who came out and saw us there but said nothing. We ended up just walking out.

It's a Starbucks - they tend to have a pretty rigid style of how they do things. This one is no different - usually if you order something and you get a good Barista it's done right. If it's not, they'll fix it. Never a problem with this location.

We order take-out from O Sole Mio at least twice a month. Wonderful friendly owners and truly excellent authentic Italian food. Good prices and very generous portions.

I love TCBY and they have the tastiest frozen yogurt! I love the varieties of soft serve and hand dipped. The value is also very good.

Blue Highway is a a casual, family-friendly neighborhood restaurant specializing in traditional Neapolitan style pizza and calazones (Glueten free options are available). Small plates, salads, paninis, sandwiches, pastas and desserts are served. A good selection of local craft beer and wine is also available. We take great pride in our culinary culture; serving the highest quality fresh, local, organic (when possible), and expertly prepared food, served with love.
We've never eaten at the flagship Blue Highway in Micanopy, but have regularly visited the Tioga location since it opened years ago. The food is top-notch; no matter what we've ordered, it's almost always been cooked well and has been tasty. Over the years, we've tried salads, pasta, and (of course) pizza. Our favorites are the greek pizza (thin crust, with kalamata olives, bell peppers, and feta cheese), the Tuscan Bean salad, and (previously, as these don't appear to be the menu anymore) the meatball appetizer and Spaghetti Carbonara entree. Bummed to see those last two go away. The deep dish pizzas we find take too long with prep time and have been hit and miss on flavor, compared to the thin crust; however, the Pizza Ranchero was amazing (think Spinach, Chicken, Bacon, Chipotle Ranch).
Service is generally good, but the venue is very small and there is often a wait in the evenings, so we usually visit for lunch or opt to sit outside if the weather is good. Occasionally, we order takeout. The largest complaint we have about the service is that many times our orders have been wrong because servers don't appear to be encouraged to pay attention to detail, which is especially important when taking a pizza order. Many, many times (too many to count), one item has been left off of our pizza, or the server has had to return for clarification because they didn't write down our order initially, trying to take everything from memory (as some seasoned servers can do). We have ended up with items like onions that we didn't want, or pizzas without sausage we ordered, and only half the time has Blue Highway been good about offering to address the problem through a replacement pizza or have we had a server offer an apology. And honestly, when pizzas take time to cook, after waiting on them for twenty minutes or so, who wants to wait on another one while the rest of your party begins to eat? So, generally, we take what we get and appreciate that it still probably tastes good, even if it wasn't exactly what we ordered. The kitchen staff is wonderful, you can actually see them cooking through the glass in the restaurant, and the food is prepared well and does taste good, and there's something to be said for that. Last, we were disappointed with the transition to a new "points" system. We had accumulated several point cards for free pizzas and were told that they would convert, only to find ourself with only one free pizza. Even though we dine there regularly, and offer our email each time, it seems that there is a bi-annual conversion to some new digital payment or other system that consistently has taken place, each time impacting our accumulated points. Previously, you earned a free pizza with every 10 or so pizza purchases; we could earn a free pizza in just 1-2 months. We haven't earned that in over a year now, but haven't changed our dining habits at all. None of the servers seem to understand the system, either. Oh well. The food is so good, that's not really why we're frequenting Blue Highway. Eat there. You'll be back. We promise.

We visited Cilantro Tacos for lunch on a Saturday. My wife and I each ordered tacos. They were good. The chips were crunchy and fresh. The only thing that was not my favorite were the beans. I thought they would be refried beans, but they were more like a bean soup. They were good, just not what I expected.

This is a little sandwich shop in the mildly up-market development of Tioga West of Gainesville on Newberry Road. We tried it when others were closed, and had a good experience. The sandwiches were pretty good, the service friendly, and only the TV sets caused a loss of stars in the rating. There is better food nearby, but Dave's is fine for a change of scenery.

A place to find the best drinks in Gainesville. We feature a selection of mixologist inspired cocktails, with various lengths of tasting progressions available.
I don't always drink hard liquor, but when I do, I do it at Fluid Lounge. Classy look, friendly feel. It could be the place where everyone knows your name. If you like to try new cocktails, this is the place. The bartender's have great...MoreThanks for visiting with us and leaving a review. We try to support the local community in whatever eats we can, whether it be by bringing in locally distilled spirits or helping local groups that do wonderful things for our community.
