Just was not my cup of tea. I felt the food was very boring. The server was very nice but took over 10 minutes to greet. If you like just salt and pepper on your food this is the place for you.

The red fish was slightly overcooked, but the overall experience was great. Good customer service and great waitress.

So, tonight out dinner was amazing. This was a meal to replace my birthday dinner that was less than wonderful. The management when over and above to correct it and I’m very happy and grateful. Our bartender was awesome, the Potstickers were delicious, my wedge salad was amazing. I’m thoroughly amazed. Thank you again! It was awesome!

I’ve been going to Ballyhoo for years but haven’t visited in a long time. I took my family there recently and although the food was all great, the place is showing a lot of signs of aging. This is the reason for my 4 star review. It is in desperate need of a complete makeover. I’ll still eat there, but hopefully they fix the place up soon.

Eaten here several times, but never reviewed. Food and service has ALWAYS been good. The Cuban sandwich was great along with the beer glazed pot stickers app. Went back the next day because of issue at movie theater and had the firecracker shrimp tacos. Outstanding!

The edamame was delicious and perfectly seasoned with garlic. The buffalo chicken sandwich, although resembling a burger with blue cheese, might not suit all tastes. The gumbo appetizer was fantastic, especially after a day of snorkeling and scuba diving at the Spring. The Fish & Chips was decent, while the burger's watermelon on the plate was a pleasant surprise. The waiter provided fast and helpful service, though the bartender was a bit slow. The sports-friendly ambiance added to the overall vibe. I look forward to returning someday!

Ballyhoo's is such a classic Gainesville spot! We went for a family dinner treat tonight and everything was 🤌 so delicious and the servers were all personable, patient and helpful. The decor is amusing and the atmosphere is fun. I like that you can see the chefs in the kitchen while you eat inside. I feel that it takes a restaurant that is confident in their stuff to show off the kitchen to the diners (if that makes sense.)The only complaint I have (it's not really a complaint per se because the food is totally worth the price), the prices are high for our family. Our experience was so good tonight that I think we will go more often. FYI tonight I saw that kids eat free on Mondays so next time we will make it a Monday if we have the kids with us! Also I want to eat outside, tonight it was a bit too cold and rainy. Oh, just remembered, they have live music but was canceled due to weather, which was a disappointment. The cedar plank Salmon was amaze!!
