Distillery
Highlands
About the restaurant
The Family Jones Spirit House is a distillery and tasting room featuring crafted spirits and bites. It emphasizes the relationship between distiller, chef, bartender and guest, with a focus on hospitality that makes it a gathering place where all feel at home. Nestled in the space at 3245 Osage St., The Family Jones Distillery occupies the former Mancinellis Market building two doors from Root Down. Designed and built by tres birds workshop, the space pairs industrial elements with rich wood details. The roof was lifted to add a second-floor mezzanine where distillery operations are now perched above a sunken, curvilinear, concrete bar. Guests enter the space through a large, square, wooden door made from reclaimed, on-site materials. Inside, they are met with low-slung seating, deep blue booths and soft lighting. Two-story wooden louvers flank the Osage Street glass facade, offering passive temperature and lighting control, while drawing attention to the well-lit copper still.

Excellent preparation and service. We enjoyed the bread, 20oz bison ribeye (shared) and roasted asparagus. Oh, the cab using grapes from Paso Robles was smooth.

How lucky the Hill is to have Alice and Rose. Where scruffy taco and pizza joints prevail, Alice and Rose serves afternoon tea, offers a high quality menu and provides a place for faculty to bring visitors. Service is excellent, the menu offers high quality dishes (caprese salad, bruschetta) and the setting is a delightful tribute to Alice in Wonderland. The macarons are outstanding.

About the restaurant

We have gone cashless. Please bring a debit or credit card. We have a 10 minute grace period for all reservations. You will not be sat until your entire party has arrived. Our featured Craft Micro Brewery is Odell Brewery, located in Fort Collins, CO. Odell Brewery is our craft beer partner featuring Mish Ale, but we have a full bar with many choices of craft beers, wine and spirits. If you book an outdoor reservation there is no guarantee you will be next to the river. Outdoor seating available weather permitting in winter season with heated bubble tents and blankets available. Bubbles may not be put up if windy conditions exist or the temperature is over 60 degrees.

Mishawaka Amphitheatre has a full service restaurant available. Enjoy a meal on our beautiful deck and watch the big horn sheep grazing on the canyon hill side or enjoy our indoor seating with large bay windows that offers the same river and wildlife view.

I think they need to have more girls working, it took a while for our waitress to come take out order but after that she was amazing and did everything we needed!
