Ames Invites you to Dine Downtown During Restaurant Week!

Ames is one of 28 Main Street Iowa communities participating in Restaurant Week September 14 – 23.   Fifteen downtown Ames restaurants and bars will offer special prices, unique entrees and great drink options. Punch cards will be available and patrons who dine at five of the participating locations will be entered to win a prize. You can also get a punch on your card by attending a cooking class or demonstration at Cook’s Emporium.   The specials, listed below, include a whiskey flight for two, gelato and coffee, lunch specials, dinner specials, and late night hot dogs and gyros!  You can pick up a brochure at one of the participating locations, at a local Ames hotel, or on the Ames Main Street website.  Bring your appetite and enjoy all there is to eat and drink in downtown Ames!   Ames Restaurant Week is presented by Ames Main Street, Café Diem, The Loft and supported by Gilger Design, Stoltze and Stoltze Family Dentistry, Della Viti, Scott Richardson State Farm, and Vision Bank.
