In Texas, we can’t usually dine al fresco until after Halloween. This year, however, we are getting an early burst of coveted cool air. 

To celebrate this atmospheric change of momentous proportions, we offer up some of our favorite restaurant patios in which to enjoy some open-air dining upon:

Robard’s Steakhouse patio at The Woodlands Resort

Dress to impress at the fire pit overlooking the water at The Panther Trail Golf Course from an upholstered swing sofa. Live large here in this stunning outdoor luxury dining space (and then some)!

Fielding’s Local Kitchen + Bar patio in Creekside Park Village Green

This front porch patio transports you to chic coastal city with its posh low sofas, tall outdoor drapery and funky stools. Its vibe screams glamour and intrigue—perfect for a romantic night out on the town!

Fogo de Chao’s patio in Hughes Landing

With hands-down the best Restaurant Row view of the Bandshell on Lake Woodlands you better get here early to claim your stake. Two words: Instagram worthy!

Gringo’s Mexican Kitchen patio on FM2978

This side patio is festive and cozy with its warm woods, charming basket lights and horizontal plant box wall. With some smartly gated room to roam this is your go-to place with the kids!

Bellagreen’s patio on Research Forest Drive

This is a modern, fresh and flirty outdoor dining space with a soaring ceiling and pine tree walls laden with cardinals and hummingbirds. The nature preserve-like setting and healthy eats make this a perfect power brunch spot!

Churrasco’s patio on The Woodlands Waterway

Night owls can delight under the sweeping triangular sails strung with lights that will shimmer on The Waterway beside them. Location, location, location make this a great place to eat before a concert at The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion!

So, while the weather may be cool, cool, cool please know your outdoor restaurant patio dining options are hot, hot, hot!
