    Resturants in Ames?

    I Might have a date after the clones game next saturday...any reccomendations?

    Ive been to Legends once at night and it was fine from what i can remember. Where else is a good place to go? BTW, any strip clubs in Ames are out. I already asked. Im kidding...eh not really.

    One stipulation...I dont do seafood. Maybe i could just talk her into going to the dang game. Those BBQ'ed pork burgers are fantastic! However me yelling, screaming, and fist pumping for 3 hours might suck for her.

    Hard to argue Hickory Park. Omally Magees(oh the spelling is miles off) is pretty good.

    Recently went to the Okoboji Grill since they moved into their new location across from McDonalds on Duff. Food was very good and atmosphere too. Sports bar and grill type.

    Re: Resturants in Ames?

    Hickory Park is ok, probably not a good place for a first date...lots of people at it can get loud at times. O'Malley MgGee's is pretty good, quiet and a good place to sit down and talk; plus, you can't deny the free nachos. The Cafe in Somerset is good, but kind of pricey. Another fairly good date place would be Old Chicago. If all else fails, King Buffet

    Re: Resturants in Ames?

    King Buffet is tasty, but the practically toxic levels of garlic in everything might put a damper on after-dinner activities... And yeah, Hickory Park gets crazy loud on weekends, even when there's not a game in town. Great place, but I'd rule it out for this weekend.

    I'm with throwittoblythe- if you don't mind spending a little bit, The Cafe is way classy and has amazing food. (It's really not that expensive; ~$15 for a dinner, which is about what you'd pay at Applebee's anyway.) Dublin Bay is about the same story. Olde Main Brewery and The Spice are both great places on Main Street.

    It's not a dinner option, but if you're up/out past midnight, I highly recommend Angie's Kitchen, the new breakfast place in Campustown (near the Bali). It's a really fun, quirky place to go, with fabulous food and dirt-cheap prices.

    What about the Dublin Bay? Irish place, pretty fancy-ish, but still a reasonable price and pretty good food.

    Re: Resturants in Ames?

    I concur on Dublin Bay. It has enough walls and nooks that you can have a conversation at a normal "indoor voice" level. Good food, moderate price, adult beverages, and if you wait until a bit later in the evening (after an 11:30 game) there won't be as much of a crowd.

    Never been disappointed at either Dublin Bay or Hickory Park, but I would concur against going to HP for a date.

    Re: Resturants in Ames?

    I wouldn't go to Hickory Park for a first date. I love it, but it is too loud for a first date.

    O'Malleys, The Cafe, Dublin Bay would be better than the Okoboji/Legends/Old Chicago route for me on a date.

    Re: Resturants in Ames?

    Not hickory park after a game, it would be a zoo.

    Dublin bay might also be pretty busy since it is right on the way out of town.

    I would suggest Omalleys, great first date place. Quiet, and has out of this world margaritas, plus really good food.
