    Setting the reservation was easy, only issue for me was a lack of ability to reserve a special outdoor bubble space (not entirely sure what Mishawaka calls them) on the open table app. Both my wife and I agree the Bruschetta Chicken as a choice for the Valentine’s Dinner for two was by far the best item on that menu! Followed by the chocolate cake!! This special menu should be a special menu regularly!

    We enjoyed the bubble and found it to be very private despite having many people settled around us on the deck . The winter time experience inspirational. The food and service and general atmosphere made it very comfortable. We’ll be back. Thank You

    The staff here are awesome it's just that they are always short staffed so it can take a while to get seated and waited on. They probably need to offer a better wage/benefits so they can actually have enough staff. It's a beautiful place and I often take friends from out of town here as I live in fort collins. There's a couple vegan options which i also really appreciate

    The hostess was incredibly rude and unhelpful. We called ahead to request that we add an additional 3 PAX to our reservation and she said snapped that “then we couldn’t be seated in the bubble.” We assured her that we preferred to be seated inside anyway as it was cold and she hung up the phone! When we arrived, she didn’t greet us and just stormed off, leaving us standing at the door. She finally came back, snatched some silverware and walked off again. Then returned and said “go to your table!” We found our table because it was the only one with 11 seats and never saw her again. The place was empty, except for a few people at the bar and one other small table of diners so she certainly wasn’t busy. Our guests from the UK were completely horrified. Thankfully, our lovely server looked after us for the rest of the evening and made up for the terrible first impression. The food was bland, burger was dry and over cooked with no sauce or seasoning. We’ll be back for the beautiful ambience but will make sure we eat before.

    The Mish has become our spot to celebrate the holidays as a family- - we love sitting outside in the bubble, exchange gifts, eat, catch-up with each other, listen to the river, and enjoy whatever the weather brings-- all within the bubble. It is a festive, easy spot to celebrate at, with food that pleases everyone.

    This was my first time at the Mish! We were the only ones there and we sat outside in a bubble. What a surreal experience with the half frozen river flowing beside us, while we ate all alone in a bubble. It was my boyfriend’s birthday and the food, drinks, and service were amazing. Highly recommend! We will be back.

    We love to eat at the Mishawaka, and with the bubbles, we can do it all year long. What a great place it is to bring our company. Besides great food, the beauty of enjoying nature and sitting by the river, the warmth of the sun and wind block create an environment that is unique and comfortable. The staff is friendly and accommodating, which adds to the fun.

    After a day of hiking we came back to enjoy something to eat and a cold beer. Place is right on the river which was nice, but inside bar area there were flys everywhere. On the counter, the ceiling, walls, etc… It was nasty. The bartender was nice and the chicken tenders were good. The beer was cold, but served in a plastic cup which was weird. Overall, this was a one and done for us.

    Our first visit to Mishawaka Amphitheathre Restaurant was so much fun. Three of us went to celebrate my husband's birthday and we had an excellent time. The day was beautiful and the Pourdre River was bubbling by, flowers in bloom, air crisp, great food. We can't wait to go back.

    Excellent over all, but food quality could be better. No pink means no pink, and half of the onion rings were not good due to possibly dirty fry oil.

    Everything is way over priced. And then you add 4 percent kitchen fee, give me a break. Food is only average to below below average. Only come for the natural environment and entertainment. And no bathrooms, have to use port a potties, sad and unsanitary. Maybe we will see you in another year or two, when prices will be higher again.
