Best winery I have visited so far. No complaints, good food, and atmosphere, will be back. Went at 12:00 when they opened so not as packed which may have contributed to the great experience.

One of our favorite things to do when visiting Purgatory is lunch at Dante’s Backside Bistro. It gets crowded at lunch but the staff are lovely humans and the food is yum. Thank you Austin and Sebastian for a great lunch experience yet again!!

Another great experience at Simms! Stephanie was beyond amazing and attentive. Great sense of humor, playful and professional. Would highly recommend her if you visit Simms in Lakewood. Thanks again for the perfectly cooked meal and the excellent service! Spot on wagu steak and perfectly seared scallops. The bread pudding was over the top for our group.

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 Mishawaka is one of my favorite restaurants when returning from a fishing trip in the Poudre. I took an out of town friend there yesterday and we sat on the river and had an early lunch. We both enjoyed the food and my friend, being there for the first time, was blown away by the ambience. As always the service was great. I highly recommend the Mishawaka.

Great drinks, nice staff and amazing scenery. It was snowing the weekend we were in Denver and had our reservation, so didn’t get the balcony sunset Mountain View experience we were hoping for, but we still made the best of it and enjoyed our time. Would go again for sure. Kind of confusing to find, but we found it eventually lol!

Food and cocktails were great, service was excellent, sleigh ride was a cute activity for families. Our waiter (I believe her name was Sharon) was just fantastic. Definitely pricey, but considering how much fun we had, it was well worth it.

Nice refried beans, left us all a little gassy the next day, but very tasty. Also great to have $3 buds and PBR’s Christmas week.
