Original American Kitchen - OAKGnv


Team "We're Mermaid For Each Other" checking in. #DisneyTrivia #IfYaAintFirstYoureLast
Thank-you all so much for your thoughtfulness and kindness yesterday. My friend and I came in after the matinee at the Hipp. When we were leaving it was raining so hard we decided to wait it out. Well it wasn't letting up. At this point the manager stepped up and gave us plastic bags for my 😊friends favorite shoes and an umbrella. She saved the day. We had a great meal , a great server and an act of kindness by the manager. Thank you all and we will be sure to return.

After seeing the shortages on proteins and other items throughout various grocery stores around town, we have decided to re-open as "OAK Market." On a trial basis (because we know how quickly things change in this climate), we will begin offering various selections of food and alcoholic beverages to be picked up from our restaurant.

Starting Thursday 3/26 from 3:00 - 8:00 pm, guests can order online through Facebook, Instagram, and Postmates (Delivery). Customers will also be able to call the restaurant, place their order, and conveniently pick it up curbside at the time of their choosing.

We figured adding this service can go a long way as we are still able to receive ample supply from our multiple vendors. Please stay tuned to our social media accounts for continuing updates. #StaySafe #SupportLocalRestaurants #DowntownGainesville

If you're looking for somewhere to dine downtown, Original American Kitchen - OAKGnv will have an amazing Southern Surf & Turf Special for only $20.20 to pay homage to the next decade starting.

This special features a six ounce filet mignon topped with a cajun seafood cream sauce, two butterfly fried shrimp, and served with the vegetable of the day. A fantastic deal to bring in the new year. There are a few reservations left, so make sure to call the restaurant today.

We also will bring in the new year with a complimentary champagne toast at midnight. Let's make this evening memorable at OAK.
