We had a wonderful experience. The food was outstanding! Despite a turbulent time getting there due to an accident with our Uber driver, the restaurant went above and beyond to make sure we were okay when we arrived, even though we were late for our reservation. Excellent service!

We sat outside and were able to have a conversation and hear each other! Beautiful setting and very good food. This was my second visit and I have a 3rd coming up. Another member of our group has already booked a reservation as well!

Large crowd was very noisy tonight, it made it hard to have a conversation. We happened to be seated right next to them. I wouldn’t blame the restaurant, however be aware of where you get seated and if there’s a big group nearby maybe ask for a different location.

About the restaurant
The Mishawaka Amphitheatre boasts a full-service restaurant open every day of the week. Dine on our scenic deck while observing the big horn sheep on the canyon hillside, or opt for our indoor seating, which features expansive bay windows for the same river and wildlife vistas. Our spotlighted Craft Micro Brewery, Odell Brewery from Fort Collins, CO, partners with us to feature the exclusive Mishawaka Ale. In addition to this, we offer a comprehensive bar selection, including a variety of craft beers, wines, and spirits.

PLEASE NOTE that reserving an outdoor spot guarantees a table outside but does not guarantee a table by the riverside. We offer a 10-minute grace period for reservations. Your party will be seated only when all members are present, due to our hour and a half limit on table occupancy. Should inclement weather arise, we cannot guarantee outdoor seating at the time of your reservation.

Our establishment is cashless. Kindly ensure you bring a debit or credit card.

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.

Portion sizes continue to shrink, especially the chicken pieces in dishes. Service was very good. Always enjoy the Brussel sprouts.
