An opening date has been announced for the new Miller’s Ale House restaurant on U.S. Hwy. 27/441 in Lady Lake.
The restaurant is set to open on Monday, Dec. 2.
The soon-to-open eatery was a hub of activity on Friday as an invitation-only crowd was offered a sneak preview of the restaurant’s menu and ambience.
Miller’s Ale House has been constructed on 2.48 acres at the southeast corner of the intersection of Fennell Boulevard and U.S. Hwy. 27/441.
Miller’s Ale House is the first establishment to open in the new Earth Fare Commons shopping center. The name Earth Fare Commons pays tribute to Earth Fare, a popular health-conscious supermarket also under construction at the site.
The site will also feature a GoodWill store and a Mission BBQ.
Jack and Claire Miller opened the first Miller’s Ale House in 1988 in Jupiter as “a local place to be enjoyed by all walks of life.” It is a casual sports restaurant known for signature hand-breaded, boneless chicken Zingers served with a choice of 16 sauces. It also offers a wine selection and craft beers.
The Benchmark Group is developing the property purchased several years ago from the Fennell family, who more than two decades ago made the land available for Lady Lake to build its town hall. The street that runs beside town hall carries the family’s name.
Benchmark has a stellar reputation in Lady Lake, having most recently developed the Texas Roadhouse restaurant and Stein Mart store. Sam’s Club, Best Buy and Bed Bath & Beyond are also part of the Benchmark footprint.
