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.

The Top is....the Top. Delicious original foods, from Vegan to burgers and everything in between. It's a fun place to visit, very popular with locals.

We like going here with friends because there are lots of choices for the vegan and non-vegan. Vegan chocolate cake is so delicious. Tofu triangles are very good for an appetizer.

I don't think they take reservations, however they do use a text message system to tell you when your table is ready. We had an hour wait but walked to a nearby bar to have drinks first and it worked out great!
