Millers Ale House in Mount Dora looking at Early 2024 Opening

1.9 min read| Published On: November 2nd, 2023|

With the constant growth of rooftop developments around the picturesque Mount Dora, it’s no surprise that the main thoroughfares are becoming increasingly attractive to restaurants and retailers. The latest addition to the city’s burgeoning dining scene is Miller’s Ale House, set to make its mark in front of the local Target store, adjacent to Panda Express, on U.S. Highway 441.

(The new Millers Ale House will be located in front of Target. There should be plenty of parking including overflow parking in the Target lot if needed. Access will be provided via turn lanes into the Target plaza.)

We reached out to Millers Ale House for further comment as to when exactly the opening date might be but they have not returned our calls. Rumors have the building possibly having an early 2024 opening but the exact month and date have not been confirmed. Construction is ongoing currently.

The Florida-based sports bar and restaurant chain, known for its classic American cuisine featuring burgers, chicken, steaks, salads, and a well-stocked bar, has chosen Mount Dora as its next destination. Miller’s Ale House offers a relaxed and welcoming ambiance, making it a perfect spot to catch your favorite sporting events, enjoy a laid-back lunch or dinner, or savor cocktails at the bar.

(Recent images showed a dirt field where the building would currently be. The building is going up and construction crews are getting the building ready for opening.)

The journey of Miller’s Ale House dates back to 1988 when it first opened its doors in the coastal town of Jupiter, Florida. Since its inception, the chain has steadily expanded and now boasts over 50 locations in the Sunshine State and an impressive total of 94 restaurants spanning across ten different states.

Notably, the restaurant chain used to incorporate location-specific names, such as Sanford Ale House for their Sanford branch and Orlando Ale House for their Orlando establishment. However, in a strategic move, the company decided to drop location references and unify all its restaurants under the “Miller’s” brand, giving each establishment a consistent identity.

(A different Miller’s located in Georgia, the building should look fairly similar to the Miller’s brand identiy.)

Miller’s Ale House now joins other prominent restaurant chains eager to tap into Mount Dora’s thriving market. Longhorn Steakhouse, known for its delectable steaks, is set to establish a location at 17020 U.S. Highway 441, conveniently located near the local Walmart. Additionally, Culver’s, famous for its butterburgers and frozen custard, recently opened at 18996 U.S. Highway 441, near the prestigious Country Club of Mount Dora.

As Mount Dora continues to evolve into a vibrant hub for dining and retail, residents and visitors alike can anticipate an even broader array of culinary experiences and shopping options in the near future.
