Located about 160 miles south of Atlanta, and 12 miles north of Plains, Americus is a very historic and interesting town to visit.  For a town of almost 16.000 with a state university, the dining scene is quite large, with many different restaurants and cafes to check out.  Most of the restaurants are located within the historic downtown district.

For casual fine dining, Amelia's at the historic Windsor Hotel is a great choice.  Fine selections of seafood, meat, and chicken dishes with a Southern flair.  Some Fridays and Saturdays they feature Indian dishes.  They are located at 125 West Lamar Street, and are open from 6:00pm-9:00pm Mondays to Saturdays.  Floyd's Bar is also located in the Windsor, and they are open from 5:00pm to close Mondays to Saturdays.  The Station, located at 222 West Lamar Street has more of a gulf-inspired menu (fresh seafood, etc), and has an extensive wine selection. 

If you are looking for down-home Southern style cooking, look no further than Gladys' Kitchen, located at 1009 S Martin Luther King Jr Blvd.  Cafeteria-style, with Southern favorites like baked and fried chicken, collards, meatloaf, fried okra, sweet potatoes and butter rolls for dessert.  Gladys' is open during the week 10:00am to 2:00pm, and late hours on the weekend.
