We feature a truly unique blend of traditional Southern and American dishes with a twist.



In the early 90s European pubs that served local or traditional cuisine began adding the term gastro to their name to express their commitment to fine food as well as drink—and a new genre of restaurant was born.

Hours & Location


Recess Southern Gastro Pub is located at 118 Bradford St. NE Gainesville, GA 30501 and is open for both lunch and dinner.


A True Southern Gastro Pub

The first known Southern Gastro Pub, Recess features a unique twist on southern American cuisine in a lively social environment. Our name, Recess, was chosen due to our close proximity to the Federal and County Courthouses and our dedication to providing the perfect spot for that much needed break.
