I came here for lunch and what a disappointment it was. I ordered chicken and it was dry, flavorless and tiny. The black bean soup is nothing more than boiled beans. The asparagus was old and tough. What a disappointment. Never again.

I love 2 Dog! Fabulous, creative food, interesting art, and a wonderful atmosphere that makes you feel like part of the family. A true local restaurant that uses locally sourced ingredients as much as possible.

Very good for lunch of a different cuisine. Nice atmosphere and the food is delicious. Take your friends for lunch through the week or Brunch on Sunday!

One of my favorite restaurants in Gainesville for lunch. Always great food prepared in interesting combinations. The Salad Meal gives the diner great choices each day from the blackboard. Some of my favorites on the daily menu are The Rosa, Chicken Avocado Quesadilla, Salads with their homemade River Ranch dressing. Also, my family's number one pick from Sunday brunch. Dinner...

Nice little place to go when you just want to break away from the cookie cutter type restaurants. Food was great, server was awesome and atmosphere was quaint. Also a farm to table type place. I had the pasta jambalaya. Very good portion, seasoning was just about right and I walked away feeling quite satisfied with the dish.

I have visited 2 Dog on several occasions. This is a good place to eat lunch and dinner in the Gainesville area. Food is good and the price is reasonable.

Always delicious. Always friendly. Always original. We've never been disappointed. Brunch on Sundays is the best! Through the years 2 Dog has been, and still is the best place to take guests from out of town and friends or family you want to treat!

For years I've heard about the 2 Dog. And I've promised to take my wife there and it has fallen through for various reasons. So today I thought that I would try it for lunch. I just wanted to preview the menu for future dates. The restaurant was bustling with business common friendly faces all around. It took no time... More
