The wait at this restaurant is simply ridiculous. 15 mins before the waiter came and talked to us, 50 mins for appetizer and drinks, and another 1 hour of waiting for the main entrees. The wait staff could careless about your service and they ignore...More

Chopstix was open shortly after Hurricane Irma hit Gainesville and we were happy we tried it. The food is delicious...quite a large menu...and we loved the lake view. It was only about a block away from the Wyndham Gardens Hotel. Thank you, Chopstix for the...More

I really like their sesame chicken orange chicken is really good too. Crab Rangoon is pretty terrific. The staff is very nice and service is prompt.

Perhaps that is why we always get good service. We do go to the 16th ave "bistro" location on busy nights -same menu and quiet outdoor seating. Outstanding vegetarian variety. Prices have edged up over the years so no longer consider this inexpensive.

Very nice setting along Biven's Arm. There is outdoor seating alongside the water. Sure to see something, Anhinga's diving, a turtle etc. Food is fabulous! Fresh, lots of veggies, best flavors. Service a tad slow, but worth the wait.

My wife and I went there because of the location on Bivens Arm Lake. The service is the worst of any restaurant in Gainesville, and that is saying something. The servers (all except one) were slow, no emotion what so ever, and everyone around us...More

Every time I'm in Gainesville I make sure I get to eat here. I just love the view of the lake with its little gator on the water. Food is reasonably priced. Big portions. We had sushi tonight and didn't like what I got. Calamari...More
