This is a classic Gainesville experience. Most of the menu item's can be customized with a variety of protein including vegetarian and vegan options. I highly recommend the weekly specials, including the drink specials. They are always creative and use local in season ingredients.

Been here two times now and the wait time has been 45 mins both times. You would think that a restaurant that looked so busy would have good food.... not The Top. The first time I went I received a burger with egg, bacon, and...More
