About the restaurant
Named Center Stage for it's strategic location overlooking blue waters and perfectly framing Longs Peak and Mount Meeker, Hole 16 sits just outside of our relaxed dining and bar area - also named Center Stage. Showcasing exhibition kitchens to encourage culinary interaction, Center Stage offers a more causal yet refined experience serving comfort food, homemade brick-oven pizzas and Colorado craft beers to enjoy around the 40-person bar.

About the restaurant
At Bacon Social House, breaking bread means building bonds over a shared love of brunch. Not to be confused with your average mom-and-pop pancake joint, Bacon rejects the expected to create an unforgettable food experience. Inspired by amped-up takes on American classics, our bacon-forward menu brings decadent flavors that satisfy and surprise. From our signature bacon flight to our churro French toast to piled-high Bloody Marys, there is something on our menu for everyone and every occasion.
Join us at Bacon Sunnyside, our flagship location, to start your day off right! Situated in Cobbler’s Corner, this two-floor, mid-century-modern space is a hidden gem in Denver’s Sunnyside neighborhood.

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.

We love lunch at the Mish, but yesterday the burgers were very much overdone.

About the restaurant
Marco’s Coal-Fired started with the simple idea that passion makes great pizza. The authentic taste of Italy is served to you through the finest ingredients and traditional techniques of the Verace Pizza Napoletana (VPN). Only 00 flour, San Marzano tomatoes, all natural fior di latte or bufala mozzarella, fresh herbs and fresh, all natural, non-processed ingredients are acceptable. Marco's Coal-Fired cooks in authentic, Italian hand built wood fired pizza ovens.
Come taste Marco's Coal-Fired's efforts and see if we don’t have you dreaming of warm Neapolitan nights, no passport required!

I took my team here for dinner. The staff was amazing. One of them even walked outside with me to help me find a parking spot. They knew the menu and the drinks and offered suggestions. I can't say enough about this neighborhood gem. The ambiance is inviting, and the staff is friendly and made us feel so welcomed. Do not miss going to this restaurant. It's not fancy, but it's oh-so good!!

What a great find! Stem Ciders are one of my favorite beverages, so when I heard about Acerage, I had to go. I wasn't disappointed! Great laid back atmosphere with plenty of outside seating. There are games for kids, dogs welcome, and chairs overlooking the mountains to watch our beautiful sunsets! The drinks were, of course, fantastic, and the food was great! I will go back!
