    As always, Mildreds did not disappoint. Delicious, high quality food with always a surprising twist. A (hidden) gem in Gainesville.

    Food was delicious! Server was great seemed happy to be there! Definitely recommend! I got the flounder had tons of flavor! My ole lady got the braised lamb over Parmesan risotto and broccoli it was to die for! Only complaint was the table we sat at was wobbly but I’d sit at that table again for the food!

    Bert and team are always on top of the list when choosing a restaurant. It’s always a delight to find their oysters on the menu like they were last night. Entries were superb as were the cocktails.
