After a long winter, all I want to do is sit on a patio in Bismarck-Mandan and enjoy the weather with a cold beer.

If you're having a tough time deciding where to grab food or a drink, consider one of these Bismarck-Mandan restaurants or bars with great patios.

    The District

    307 N 3rd St, Bismarck

    The District in Downtown Bismarck offers a variety of different bars and restaurants. However, you can enjoy outdoor seating at two of them.

    If you have the kids, grab a spot out on The Pond's patio. You'll often find live music as well. If you're looking for something unique, be sure to stop up at the Lilli Pad. It has a great rooftop view of Downtown.

    Stadium Sports Bar

    1247 W Divide Ave, Bismarck

    The Stadium Sports Bar patio is the perfect place to get some friends together and enjoy a few beers on a hot summer day. Their patio shields you from the sun so you don't have to worry about getting that nasty sunburn. It's easy to forget the sunscreen when you're having a great time!

    Los Luna's

    108 N Mandan St, Bismarck

    Delicious margaritas, fun outdoor atmosphere, great food...what's not to love? You won't want to go anywhere else after enjoying some of their guacamole on the patio. Don't forget to check out their live music events!

    Rock Point

    2500 Pirates Loop SE, Mandan

    Rock Point has one of the best patios in Bismarck-Mandan. The view of the Missouri River is amazing and there is so much space. You can also drive your boat right up to their convenient dock.

    Enjoy lunch, some beers and stick around because they have great events going on almost nightly!

    Blarney Stone Pub

    408 E Main Ave, Bismarck

    Okay, so it's not technically a patio. But you'll have a ton of fun sitting next to the open garage door at Blarney Stone Pub. It's basically like being outside without having to deal with the wind!

    The Broken Oar

    4724 Pintail Loop SE, Mandan

    The Broken Oar has been a local favorite for years. Stop by on your boat or just find a spot on their patio overlooking the gorgeous Missouri River. You NEED to try a clamdigger.

    The Bistro

    1103 E Front Ave, Bismarck

    The Bistro has a great fenced in patio. Get there early, especially if there's live music! The place fills up quick but it's definitely worth the wait.

    422 E Main Ave, Bismarck

    Enjoy one of Peacock Alley's famous bloody mary's or martinis on their patio in the heart of Downtown Bismarck.

    JL Beers

    217 N 3rd St, Bismarck

    JL Beers' patio is one of Bismarck's hidden treasures. It is tucked way in the back of the restaurant. The patio has a little fireplace and great landscaping.

    Warning: You will want to sit outside and drink craft beers all day. When this happens, order a cajun burger.

    Starving Rooster

    512 E Main Ave, Bismarck

    Once again, not technically a patio. But you can sit right up to their open garage door and people watch... sometimes that's even better. It's one of Bismarck's newest additions Downtown and if you haven't checked it out, you need to go!
