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.

The winery is located on a beautiful piece of land next to a river. The charcuterie board was delicious. The wine tasting was enjoyable.

About the restaurant
Austin's American Grill is the quintessential taste of Colorado. With three great Fort Collin's locations-one in the heart of Old Town, another on Harmony Road and one in Greeley, we'll have you wondering why mom's food never tasted so good and when you can come back for more. Savory roasts and chicken cooked over an open flame in our front-of-the-house rotisserie. All-natural buffalo seasoned to perfection. Cornbread baked in iron skillets with honey butter. Signature cocktails sweetened with fresh-squeezed fruit juice. Plus, our decadent desserts are made fresh daily, giving you an excuse to stop in for a slice that reminds you of home. There's a reason Austin's is one of Northern Colorado's favorite destinations.

We shared three starters, one salad, one main, and a bottle of wine. More than two of us could possibly eat, but delicious.
