Seattle Restaurants & Bars With Outdoor Seating

A running list of reopened Seattle restaurants and bars where you can eat and drink outside.

Updated October 27th, 2020

On June 5, Seattle restaurants were given the OK to reopen for dine-in service - and a lot of guidelines to follow when they did. (You can learn more about those guidelines here.) Somewhat understandably, there’s been a bit of confusion about the whole situation - though one thing Infatuation readers don’t seem confused about is their desire to eat outside whenever they do head back to their favorite restaurants.

So we made this guide.

We’ll continue to update it as spots reopen around the city, and if there’s a patio you think needs to be included, email us at seattle@theinfatuation.com.

Too cold or rainy to eat outside? Check out our full guide with restaurants who have tents, heaters, and fire pits. Don’t feel ready at all to return to a restaurant? For our full guide to the city’s takeout and delivery options, check out the Ultimate Seattle Delivery & Takeout Guide.

You can even pull up to the dock with your boat and grab takeout.

$$$$ 5901 Airport Way S

This Mexican seafood spot in Georgetown is the sister bar to Fonda La Catrina, and they have a secluded back patio ideal for post-sunset margarita-drinking and ceviche-eating. Fonda La Catrina’s also open, so an outdoor One-Two Punch is possible here.

PizzaItalian  in  Fremont
$$$$ 4012 Leary Way NW

If you missed eating pizza at a picnic table next to a firepit, you can do so at Frelard Pizza Co. again. The only catch is that you have to place your order online for takeout in order to sit - there’s no dine-in service at this time.

$$$$ 4706 California Ave SW Seattle, WA 98116 United States

The West Seattle Haymaker also has a patio (and terrific pasta) - though the only view you’ll have is of a car periodically making its way down California Avenue. Reservations are required for the patio and the dining room.

Hill City Tap House

$$$$ 5303 Rainier Ave. S.

Hill City is a fantastic place to order a beer, sit at a picnic table outside, and eat some poke from across the street from Sam Choy’s. Even though there are just a few tables, this spot never gets too crowded so it’s a nice place to keep in mind for something last minute.

Humble Pie

$$$$ 525 Rainier Ave S

Humble Pie is a pizza spot in the ID with a good-sized patio complete with picnic tables and a chicken coop. It’s open for dine-in service, and they’ve changed the layout a bit to make everything safer for staff and guests.

CaribbeanCubanJamaican  in  Belltown
$$$$ 2510 1st Ave

Jerk Shack is open for dine-in service as a ticket-only dinner club, and part of their seating extends onto their relaxing back patio. Their jerk-fried chicken and some 75-degree sunshine are two things everyone could use a little more of right now.


KoreanSteaksFusion  in  Wallingford
$$$$ 3506 Stone Way N

This excellent Korean steakhouse is open for dine-in service on their cozy patio with a limited menu - though you can expect some of their greatest hits, like their kalbi-marinated short rib steak and spicy chorizo rice cakes.

Lady Jaye is taking reservations for patio dining where you can enjoy smoked meats, cocktails, and soft serve.

Linda's Tavern

$$$$ 707 E Pine St

You’ve probably been on the patio at Linda’s before, likely on a warm night, dancing around with an alcohol Mountain Dew slushie melting in your hand.

Little Water Cantina

Mexican  in  Eastlake

Loretta's Northwesterner

$$$$ 8617 14th Ave S

If you’re at Loretta’s for the sole purpose of getting one of their iconic double tavern burgers, you might have missed out on their very chill back patio. Right now, it’s open on a first-come, first-served basis if you feel like eating said burger outside instead of in your car.

Lost Lake Cafe & Lounge

$$$$ 1505 10th Ave

This is not the first year Lost Lake has taken over the street with their patio - their outdoor situation kind of reminds us of a ship deck. You can stop by for diner food from 7am-10pm every day.

Mala & Satay

$$$$ 224 Fairview Ave N

We’re fans of Mala & Satay for their comforting pho and tasty bánh mì - and their outdoor dining area is open, where you can bring your takeout to eat.

M Bar

$$$$ 400 Fairview Ave N

If the city of Seattle renamed the entire summer season “The M Bar Months,” nobody would second guess that decision. This is the best rooftop bar in the city, and even though you’d think it’s even harder to get in with limited capacity seating, there are plenty of available reservations online, from Tuesday-Saturday from 4-9pm.

Magnuson Cafe & Brewery

$$$$ 7801 62nd Ave NE

As a Seattleite, it’s your right to drink craft beer and stare out onto a body of water. And you can do just that at Magnuson Cafe. This brewery on Magnuson Park that has a big deck, a great view of Lake Washington, and bar food like burgers and fish and tacos is now open again.

Marination Ma Kai

$$$$ 1660 Harbor Ave SW

Mean Sandwich

SandwichesDeli  in  Ballard
$$$$ 1510 NW Leary Way

You’ll still have to order takeout since Mean Sandwich is a counter operation, but you can now eat your incredible sandwiches out on a picnic table in their backyard. Stay updated on their Instagram.


$$$$ 615 19th Ave E

Monsoon is a Vietnamese restaurant with a roof that seems ironic for most of the rainy year. But for the few months when it’s nice out, this is where you want to be eating noodles and stir-fry outside. And if you ever tried to imagine what it might be like to eat imperial rolls while perched in a tree, you don’t really have to wonder about that anymore.


$$$$ 2524 Beacon Ave S

The Pacific Inn

AmericanBar FoodSeafood  in  Fremont
$$$$ 3501 Stone Way N

Pacific Inn serves the best fish and chips in town, and eating them on their patio deck is a PNW summer activity that’s up there with hiking, a bike ride on the Burke-Gilman, and finally deciding that it’s time to buy an air conditioner. Since their patio’s on the smaller side, expect to wait a bit for a table.

Paseo Caribbean Food

$$$$ 4225 Fremont Ave N

Paseo’s Fremont location is open for outdoor dining on their patio, which seats around four or five small groups. Learn more at their website.

Perihelion Brewery

$$$$ 2800 16th Ave S

The thing with patio-only seating is that if it rains, your plans are cancelled. But Perihelion’s patio is virtually weather-proof. It’s covered, and the tables are firepits, so you can still sit here if the sky opens up and starts drizzling. This Beacon Hill brewery serves some of the greatest bar food in town, from homemade pretzels to a pretty spectacular burger.

Petite Soif

$$$$ 3309A Beacon Ave S

This Beacon Hill natural wine bar has a little back courtyard patio with a handful of tables set up and spaced far enough apart to accommodate social distancing.

Ray's Cafe

AmericanSeafood  in  Ballard
$$$$ 6049 Seaview Ave NW

It doesn’t really matter how many flashy patios in Seattle have opened up over the past few years - Ray’s is one of the classics we always come back to. There’s nothing quite like splitting a bottle of cold wine out here while eating crab cakes, looking out onto the water, and getting the worst face sunburn of your entire year. Right now, they’re open daily from 11:30am-9pm.

Reckless Noodle House

$$$$ 2519 S Jackson St

Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Rhein Haus

$$$$ 912 12th Ave

Rhein Haus, the German bar on Capitol Hill, is our favorite place to play bocce ball and swat bees away from our beer cheese. While the bocce court is temporarily unavailable, the outdoor biergarten is a great spot to kill an afternoon. Note that they’re only taking walk-ins at this time.

Roanoke Park Place

$$$$ 2409 10th Ave E

The Roanoke is a dive bar on 10th Ave E. right off I-5, and they’ve opened their large back patio to serve food and drinks. They’re open from Wednesday-Saturday from 4pm-2am.

Rockcreek Seafood & Spirits

AmericanSeafood  in  Fremont
$$$$ 4300 Fremont Ave N

If you want seafood but aren’t quite sure yet what you’re in the mood for specifically, RockCreek is a good place to go.

Right now, they’re open for dine-in service Tuesday through Saturday from 4-9pm.

Rooftop Brewing Company

$$$$ 1220 W Nickerson St

Rooftop Brewing Company recently renovated the space to seat even more people safely, and we love that their “Glorious Basker” is both an excellent blood orange wheat ale and a nickname you can give yourself for the summer.
