The Best Outdoor Dining in Cleveland

Now that Cleveland is in the yellow zone, we can start to enjoy some summer activities while practicing social distancing!. You now have the opportunity to find this year’s favorite outdoor restaurants with the best food and views in town.  Below, we’ve compiled some of the best restaurants in and around Cleveland to grab a bite to eat and enjoy the summer sun, six feet apart, of course! 



Batuqui boasts an authentic Brazilian experience. Keeping their home in mind, the owners moved from the Bahia & Minas Gerais States of Brazil and brought the South American cuisine to Cleveland. The restaurant is in a restored house, so it has a homey atmosphere you’ll be sure to love. Try a Caipirinha -- Brazil’s National Cocktail -- and sample the exotic flavors of Moqueca, a Brazilian recipe based on saltwater fish stew in coconut milk, tomatoes, onions, garlic, coriander, and palm oil.


Southern Tier

Enjoy the 30+ taps at the brand new, 811 Prospect Avenue East facility in Cleveland! This location will not only serve traditional Southern Tier favorites, but is home to its own brewing facility! Grab a bite to eat and enjoy the taste of local Cleveland!


E55 on the Lake

Take in the live entertainment every Saturday, as you enjoy great lake views and a great selection of all-American sandwiches, burgers, and wraps. For a delicious, flavorful option, try the firecracker shrimp.  This will make your tastebuds go crazy with shrimp that is tossed in a sweet and spicy chili sauce and topped with pico de gallo.  


Nuevo Modern Mexican 

It’s Friday and you are on the hunt for tacos and guacamole, look no further. Nuevo has an exciting and casual atmosphere that offers upscale Mexican cuisine.
