BJ's is a good chain serving consistently good meals. The Gainesville location is convenient on Newberry in front of Oaks Mall. Nice variety on their menu.

Cons: Cocktails are ok. Their food is better!

You wouldn't think by the name or the exterior that this place serves delicious Mexican food, but it does! It's a small little hole in the wall in a strip center but it's a hot spot - they're always busy and often have a line waiting.

Cons: Parking is very limited in the front but there is more parking in the back.

This is a luxurious option for dinner and a movie! I am surprised at how much I like the food. It's delicious. I'm a regular and like to bring out of town guests too that aren't familiar with the concept. I love that you can reserve a seat when you purchase your ticket. The seats are roomy and some of the theaters have ottomans. My favorite dishes are the warm goat cheese bread bowl and the wings, but their entrees are good too!

Pros: Good food, comfy seats, and beautiful individual theaters.

Cons: Plenty of parking now in the garages but it looks like Hyde Park is going to metered street parking. That's a shame for all the businesses that are trying to attract customers. Cocktails are delicious but pricey.

They're known for deliciously prepared steaks but I also enjoy the seafood at Captial Grille. I've always enjoyed all of my entrees and the wait staff is always friendly.

This is one of my favorite restaurants! It's on the water and has a great dining atmosphere. I've gotten mostly seafood dishes and have enjoyed every meal. They sometimes run specials for an appetizer, entree, and dessert - great deal!

Cons: Parking is an issue but you can valet.

This is an experience all it's own! You can enjoy the dessert room without dinner reservations but you're not given any kind of priority. It can literally be hours to wait. It's a must-do for a visit to Tampa though. It's something special and every dessert is done to perfection! My favorite? Bananas Foster!

This 21-acre upscale resort is next to a lake and is about a mile from the Walt Disney World Resort. The contemporary rooms and suites have separate living rooms and is perfect for a traveling family or anyone wanting more space. It's a beautiful property too!

This is a nice cafe with a variety of selections. Great location too - on 5th Avenue, in the heart of the boutique shopping and restaurant district.

For a quick meal, this is a perfect choice. The food is always good and it's nice to have options other than a burger if you're pressed for time. Their chips are especially good!

What a salad and sides buffet! This is a great spot for a big party. Gauchos deliver the meat tableside and you can get the sides at your leisure. Easy for huge parties as there would not be big delays. Everything I had was wonderful and they let you take the dessert (included) home with you. I'd definitely go back again.

I went to a corporate event function so the menu was set in advance but everything we had was delicious and the service was exceptional. I'll be back anytime I'm on Longboat Key!

Falling Creek Falls is a 10-foot waterfall on 76 acres and just a short walk just north of Lake City. The boardwalk trail offers easy access to the scenic view. It's perfect for a day exploring the outdoors!
