Summer Outdoor Dining Scene Heats Up in NEPA

Decks, Patios and Sidewalks at NEPA Eateries are Open for Outdoor Summer Dining

 

From porches and patios to BBQ beer gardens, we’re dining al fresco all season long.

NEPA’s summer weather brings us many things. We’re getting back out on the trails, visiting local parks, hitting up farmer’s markets and walking to downtown shops. Basically, we are all about getting outside. And when it comes to dining, we’ll take a warm summer breeze, a setting sun and a few Tiki torches any day of the week.

Whether it’s a sidewalk patio, or a spacious, European-style beer garden, NEPA boasts many outdoor dining options. You may just have to start inventing reasons to go out. Spend your Saturday morning soaking up some rays with patio pancakes and mimosas. Gather your lunch squad for a little outdoor BBQ and beer. Of course, you can always meet up for a sweet summer evening with drinks on the deck.

Regardless of the occasion, make the most of your nights out and your lunches and brunches. We’ve rounded up some of NEPA’s most iconic al fresco dining locations.
