5 Places to Eat on the Patio This Summer in Phoenix

Sitting on a restaurant patio in the arid climate of Phoenix is a wonderful way to enjoy the morning air or sunset views. At Phelps LaClair, we know how important it is to spend time outdoors. Patio dining in particular is a great way to embrace the beauty of our great state while enjoying a satisfying meal. Bring a friend, a family member, or even your dog, and try out one of these five great places to dine outside in Phoenix.

Places to Dine Outside in the Phoenix Valley

1: Enjoy Dinner on the Patio with The House Brasserie in Scottsdale

The charming patio at this well-loved restaurant provides a romantic and comfortable ambiance for an outdoor dinner. Sip on an exquisite hand-crafted cocktail (like a smoked Manhattan) and stay cool underneath the canopy of trees overhead that provide plenty of shade. By taking your mind off the heat, you can focus on enjoying their cutting-edge cuisine—like the Iberico Pork Pluma served with king oyster mushrooms and fennel jam. It’s an ideal spot for a memorable patio dinner in Scottsdale. Lindsey T. has said, “The patio is my happy place, it makes me feel like I’m in Europe.” 

2: Treat Yourself to Brunch at the Breakfast Club 

Want to sit on the patio, breathe in the fresh morning air, and sip a cold pressed juice after walking your dog? Then the Breakfast Club is your perfect spot—and your dog can join you on the patio! The restaurant has three locations, and the one in downtown Phoenix on East Jefferson Street has a large outdoor eating space. Drop by and indulge in their scratch-made dishes with ingredients sourced from local growers, ranchers, and producers. Fan favorites include the chicken tinga frittata and the churro waffles. 

3: Plan a Picnic Party with The Farm at South Mountain

You can’t go wrong with a picnic lunch under the trees! Enjoy farm-to-table cuisine in a serene and picturesque setting. Located in a historic pecan grove, The Farm offers several outdoor dining options set in the middle of its lush greenery. You can also host a Picnic Party for your next family gathering, group outing, or any gathering of 15 or more. The team at The Farm Kitchen will create a menu and curate the experience for you and your guests. Simply relax and enjoy!

4: Dine in Style at The Henry

Nestled in the Arcadia neighborhood of Phoenix, The Henry features a lovely French-inspired, brick-paved, elevated patio with plenty of umbrellas for shade. The menu and the atmosphere are both infused with Gatsby-era grace, charm, and energy. Savor every detail of your meal, from the short-rib potstickers to the sprouts and squash salad while you sip on a bottle of wine from their extensive collection. 

5: Kickback with Joyride Taco House

Known for its lively atmosphere and delicious tacos, Joyride Taco House is a great spot for enjoying authentic Mexican meals! Try chilaquiles, enchiladas, burritos, and—of course—tacos! Pull up a patio chair and mix and match your options to create the perfect taco platter. Kick back with a frosty pitcher of beer. Or order a round of margaritas to enjoy with your friends while you much on traditional and creative tacos from crispy fish to carne asada. (Vegetarian options are also available.)
