Alfresco Dining in Lake County, IL

Lake County Outdoor Dining

Get lost in the scenic views while enjoying a great meal...

When the weather's nice, adding the right outdoor dining experience can elevate a great meal into an experience that won’t soon be forgotten. Come dine and celebrate your taste buds and the views, outdoors in Lake County!

Lindy’s Landing is the ultimate summer spot for outdoor dining! Keep cool under an oversized umbrella on their patio while sipping on a signature cocktail. Only feet away from scenic Bang’s Lake in Wauconda, enjoy their patio dining offering a full and modern menu, or opt for the more laid back tiki-bar and picnic bench area right on the beach. Bring the kids out for this family favorite---their honey-chili glazed wings are a perfect starter.

At the Route 41 Roadhouse, take a minute to enjoy the warm cornbread served with sweet honey cinnamon butter under strands of lights strung above the outdoor tables on their wooden deck. Amazing burgers, wings and favorites. At Route 41 Roadhouse, it’s easy to get lost in the scenic views of Lake County’s natural beauty all around you.

Savor the creamy sweetness of a homemade root beer float at the classic 1950s style drive in, Miller’s Dog N Suds. Take a step into the past at a classic car show and indulge in a delicious burger while listening to live music performances of favorite hits from years gone by.

Another great outdoor gathering space awaits up north with a "northwoods" feel in the center of downtown Antioch at The Lodge of Antioch. Enjoy the expansive patio, great foods and cocktails. Music, Thursday bags tournaments, an acoustic breakfast on weekends await. Shop and browse the many shops just steps away.
