Outdoor Dining

Spokane is a synthesis of modern cuisine, natural allure, and local culture. This combination is what makes Spokane the perfect blend of convenient city attractions and a rustic getaway. Once winter melts away, the beautiful days of spring, summer, and fall are best spent sipping and dining outdoors around the region.

You can start your day at one of the local coffee shops, like Atticus Coffee and Gifts, where you can sip a freshly brewed Americano while you peruse the local art and souvenirs, then take the short walk to the Centennial Trail, where you can immerse yourself in Riverfront Park. 

Just blocks away on Main Street, you may try Saranac Public House with its vegan and vegetarian plates, full bar, and student-budget friendly happy hour deals. Just dropping in? Stay grounded with the bottom floor patio.  Planning a party?  Book private dining on the second level patio and enjoy the view from above.

One of many steakhouses in the area, Clinkerdagger is situated on the north bank in the historic, red brick Spokane Flour Mill, which was built in 1895. You can imagine how the mill was once powered by the river while watching the thundering cascade of waterfalls from the patio. Enjoy fresh, seasonal oysters, and relax as you enjoy all the beauty Spokane has to offer.  

Our city has many Italian fare options, and weekly pies and daily slice specials are just a couple of reasons why visitors and residents flock to Veraci Pizza. It helps that this pizzeria is in the Kendall Yards, Spokane’s it neighborhood. The spacious patio overlooks the bustling waters of the river.

After a long day of sightseeing, unwind with your friends at one of the local bars, like Anthony’s at Spokane Falls. With farm to table cuisine and Northwest wines and microbrews, you can sit by the waterfront and let the river and wine flow. 

Whether you have a specific, event-packed stay or no agenda at all, Spokane offers an impressive assortment of outdoor dining options where you can enjoy fresh foods and take a fresh look at the calming landscape of Spokane’s vistas.
