Great Diner that reminds me of the old Diners in Chicago (except coffee not as bold as I like). Greeted warmly by smiling staff and management. Delicious breakfast (French Toast, scrambled and perfectly seasoned home fried potatoes). Bacon was not crispy enough so the Waitress sent us a whole plate of crispy bacon for no extra charge. Have to try the Liver n' Onions for lunch next time. We left a fat tip.

We went here for brunch on a Sunday after gameday and WOW this place is amazing! Everyone got the Paul Bunyan breakfast. So much food for a very reasonable price, and the food was delicious! The server was also very sweet and checked in several times to make sure we were doing well. I'm not sure if the lady and gentleman at the counter were the owners, but they were extremely appreciative of our patronage--I am planning to go back soon!

Fantastic server and fast, hot food! Great place for breakfast and lunch! We will be back to try dinner and anticipate the same excellent results.


We've been a fan of The Clock for over 35 yrs. It offers a down home atmosphere & a wide variety of choices on the menu for everyone's taste. Some of our favorites are the many breakfast choices, the country fried steak dinner, the chef salad, the hot fudge sundae, the banana split, & many more choices we've tried as well. I will say that they currently have limited hours & are no longer open 24/7, however almost all businesses in Alachua County are having limited hours during the Covid Crisis.

This place reminds me of walking into Cheers. It is a great place for diner food, especially breakfast! My son loves their biscuits and gravy! They have great service and an amazing staff! The staff is the light of my life since I started studying there in the mornings… a huge encouragement in my life! A great spinach omelette! I get mine with black olives feta and a fresh slice of tomato! Check it out!

Went here with some colleagues and was pleased with the overall experience. Gainesville doesn't have the best diners but this was one of the better ones in town. Food was pretty good. I had a breakfast platter and was disappointed at how small of a serving the eggs were compared to other similar priced options.

Food was great but I got Levi as a waitress. She's ok but when I am trying to get out of the booth she leans over me to clear the table. I had to wait on her to leave to be able to get out and pay my bill. She's always in such a hurry to get you out. There wasn't a lot of people in the diner so she could have waited 2 minutes. Almost every time she comes over she leans over me for something. I really hate that. She gets so close to my face.! Not the most pleasant person either. Tends to slam things on the table in front of you.

We miss the clock not being open for dinner. Always had a good dinner, hope it opens for dinner hours soon.

Obnoxious servers. Bus boys muttering under their breath. Lack of refills. Didn't stay for food. Southern country style. Not worth the wait for us.

Good food. Help is usually friendly. A little pricey but portions are decent. Only one issue. Waitress with a kids tiara. Actually threw a tantrum the day I was there. Sullen, rude, tossing stuff on table, slamming things around. She even blocked some one from getting out of the booth. Physically blocked her reaching over her to empty the table. Could have waited 30 seconds. I saw her deliberately run into a patron. Surprised she has a job. Should be fired.

Haven't been in a while. Not disappointed. I loved the home fries, big chunks of fresh potatoes- not frozen. Everything was great. The Baabaa gave it 2 thumbs-up ? ? and said we would come back. Jennifer gave us good customer service. The seating hostess was phenomenal. Good job Clock and thanks. Wear your MASK.
