When the weather is nice, there's just nothing like enjoying a good meal or drink outside. For that reason, many restaurants and bars provide patios for those who want to dine outdoors. Not all restaurants (or patios) are created equal, though, so below you will find a listing of some of Memphis' best restaurants and bars with patios.
Located on Beale Street, Alfred's is a great place to dine or to party. Either way, they have two nice patios available.
If you're in the mood for Cajun food, Bayou Bar and Grill is a great place to eat. On nice days, their roomy patio is open to diners.
Boscos, located in Overton Square, is best known for its beers but it also offers a great patio on which to enjoy them. If that's not enough, Boscos serves a nice selection of steaks, pastas, pizza, burgers, and more.
Brookhaven Pub and Grill is a popular spot for Tigers fans. They have a great patio where you can sit back, enjoy some pub grub, and catch the game.
With perhaps one of the most popular patios in Memphis, Cafe Ole is located in the Cooper Young district. They serve up an assortment of Tex-Mex and Mexican fare.
Maybe it's because of the authentic Irish dishes served there or maybe it's because of it's quaint setting in Cooper-Young, but the patio at Celtic Crossing is almost always full of diners. Nevertheless, this popular patio is worth the wait.
East End Grill is another popular destination for patio lovers. All three locations feature a nice patio and the East End Grill serves up pub grub and a large selection of full dinner specialties.
Who doesn't like the patio at El Porton? It's got plenty of room and it's a great place to get a decent meal at a great price.
The small patio at Old Venice Pizza Company is always full, but the food is so good that it's worth the wait. Oh, and to clarify, they serve up much more than just pizza.
If sushi is your thing, you can enjoy it on the patio at Sekisui. For your dining pleasure, you can catch live music some nights on the patio, as well.
Another Beale Street bar, Silky's has a huge patio to accommodate it's equally huge crowds on any given weekend night.
