Lake County Outdoor Dining
Get lost in the scenic views while enjoying a great meal...

When the weather is nice, adding the right outdoor dining experience can elevate a great meal into an experience that won’t soon be forgotten. Next weekend, dine outside in Lake County!

Outdoor dining at Lindys Landing in WaucondaLindy’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 and enjoy a lunch as they splash in the shallow water in their adorable sunhats and glasses. Try the honey chili glazed wings as a perfect lake side starter!

Dine outside at Port of Blarney at the Chain O LakesKnown as the “Key West of the Midwest”, Port of Blarney’s outdoor seating area overlooks Grass Lake on the Chain O’Lakes and offers a tropical feel. Get lost in the “beachy” feel of this fun loving atmosphere while enjoying live entertainment and delicious food and drinks.

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. At Route 41 Roadhouse, it’s easy to get lost in the scenic views of Lake County’s natural beauty all around you.

Step back in time at 50s style drive-in at Miller's Dog N SudsSavor 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.

Even into the fall months, a well situated fire place in an outdoor space transforms a nice dinner into a cozy and special evening. Fox’s Lounge in Antioch’s Best Western has a modern pub and a patio that overlooks beautiful views of Lake Antioch with an outdoor fireplace and a glass of wine waiting to entertain.

Dine outside during your Lake County weekend getaway!
