As more rooftops are built around Mount Dora, more restaurants and retailers are attracted to the main thoroughfares of the area. The latest with plans to open in the city is Miller’s Ale House, which plans a location in front of Target near Panda Express on U.S. Highway 441.
The Florida-based sports bar and restaurant chain cooks up traditional American fare of burgers, chicken, steaks, salads and a full bar. Its casual atmosphere provides a comfortable backdrop to watch sporting events or just enjoy a relaxed lunch or dinner or cocktails at the bar.
The first Ale House opened in 1988, in the coastal town of Jupiter, Florida. Now the chain has over 50 locations in the state, 94 locations in ten states.
Previously, the name of the restaurant would be specific to the location. So the Ale House in Sanford was dubbed Sanford Ale House and the one in Orlando was Orlando Ale House. Eventually the location was dropped from the name and “Miller’s” was added to all of the restaurants.
Miller’s Ale House now joins Longhorn Steakhouse and Culver’s as the latest restaurant chains with plans to expand into Mount Dora. Longhorn will be building a location at 17020 U.S. Highway 441 near Walmart and Culver’s will be further south at 18996 U.S. Highway 441 near the Country Club of Mount Dora.
