Patio Dining Guide

Patio Guide

Windsor Essex comes to life during patio season. From rooftop vibes to back alley architecture to main street affairs, there is an al fresco restaurant for every mood and craving.



Windsor Essex is one of the most culturally diverse regions in Canada – and our food scene showcases it!

Is there anything better than dining al fresco on a warm evening? If it’s a view of the water you’re looking for, the hustle of a downtown street or a cozy nook tucked away for a quiet tΓͺte-Γ -tΓͺte, check out our restaurants listings below – sorted by dining style, and by town! Enjoy!

With the summer season quickly approaching, towns around YQG will close down streets for evenings of entertainment and fun. See below for a preview and check out our Event Calendar often for the latest happenings throughout Windsor Essex.
