Another outstanding meal at Amelia's. Andy put some excellent dishes on the table. Lobster ravioli in a soft marinara sauce, a beautiful grouper dish and of course the fine appetizers of calamari and the portabello mushrooms. Notable also was the wine list with fine wines at very reasonable prices: the best value wine list in Gainesville. More

Discover Ocala

Horse farms and small diners are commonplace along U.S. Route 441 between Gainesville and Ocala; both are integral parts of Central Florida culture. When you stop for a meal in the area, you'll find that some of the best places may be connected to a gas station or convenience store. Since most establishments are locally owned, they give off an "Old Florida" vibe. Barbecue sandwiches are popular when served with slow-cooked vegetables. Biscuits and gravy are in high demand at breakfast time. Even in small towns like Micanopy and Reddick, you will find a range of Italian, Mexican, and Cuban cuisine. If you head to the east side of Orange Lake, restaurants in the small towns of Citra and Hawthorne are rumored to serve Florida gator tail and authentic Greek gyros.
