**Mishawaka offers outside dining in our heated bubble tents.**

Enjoy a front row seat of the Poudre Canyon with a burger and a beer at the Mishawaka. 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. There is no better spot to share what Northern Colorado has to offer, so bring up your friends and relax for the afternoon. Give yourselves a taste of mountain air, sunshine, the rushing river, as well as a great burger and Odell beer on tap. Outdoor seating available weather permitting in winter season with patio heaters and blankets available.

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.

Super disappointed in the Mish. Reserved an outdoor bubble for a special holiday get-together with family. After driving over an hour to get there, the host says they didn't put up the bubbles because of possible wind. Because we had driven so far and had super hungry kids, we stayed and ate in the dingy dinning room. Not the special lunch I had coordinated. So we dropped $150 on very mediocre food. I can totally understand not being able to set up the tents because of possible wind, but someone should have called to let us know this before so we could make an informed decision.

A minor thing here or there is okay by itself but there were multiple things that made our visit not as good as other times we’ve visited.
Our morning visit was not long after they opened and there was only one other couple there. A visit to the women’s restroom was met with no toilet paper in the stall box, and then the soap machine was inoperable.
My sandwich was great but I wanted to add some salt and pepper to my coleslaw. Both shakers were clogged and the contents were hard as a rock inside so no amount of beating on my hand would dislodge any of either. Looking at the other condiments in the holder it was really gross to see the bottle of (I think steak sauce) the lid was not on all the way because dried up sauce was caked around the lid and down the side of the bottle.

We had a nice time on the patio with music playing and the river flowing. We unfortunately left a jacket behind and Cam helped us find it and get it back before our return flight in the morning! Thanks

The Buffalo Burger was outstanding. I also like the fried fish and chips. It can be much cooler up here than Fort Collins, so bring a sweatshirt or a jacket. This isn’t a place for the best food in the world, it’s all about the drive, the scenery and the ambiance.

Great vibe, cool venue, fun environment! First time out in nearly 7 months- whoa. Kelsey gave us ( IMO) best table on the deck outside! Cassie our server was extremely attentive, friendly and efficient! I guess we overstayed our welcome but it was such a beautiful day and cool lil spot we had heard about but had not been too- it was hard to give up our spot! The edamame, pork/ slaw sandwich, “pork chops” bloody Mary’s and Mishawaka Ale were all delicious! Thanks for a fine time in a beautiful part of Northern Colorado! 🤙🏻

The atmosphere sitting on the deck at the Mish is always great…service was great, food not so great. Most of the food - onion rings, fish, burger was an undercooked mess 🤢. Oh well! We’ll continue to go for the atmosphere, not the food ;)

Walked into the restaurant and at least 4 employees walked by us without saying a word. We sat on the patio and were initially sat at a table directly in the sun... There were plenty of tables with adequate shade so we moved ourselves. Our server (Zack) made a point to greet us, but was so busy that he couldn't take our drink order for over 15 min. The food is very good, and came out in a decent amount of time - once our order was taken. The overall service wasn't great, but I don't blame Zack - who was working the entire patio by himself on a Saturday afternoon, on his FIRST DAY. The biggest problem was the literally hundreds of bees on the patio. Multiple customers at other tables were stung while we were there. The staff seems stressed & very unhappy. The restaurant as a whole needs more structure and leadership. Would eat there again when we visit, but only because it's the only restaurant in the area.
