The Best Outdoor Patios in Beaumont
The hot Texas heat has us throwing shade for all the right reasons, and you know what has us wanting to spread out. If you’re looking for outdoor dining spots with plenty of elbow room, we’ve got you covered (literally) on the best restaurant and bar patios in Southeast Texas.
Suga’s Deep South
A tropical vibe and outdoor fans ensure you’re staying cool under the big Texas sun. As one of Beaumont’s only white-tablecloth restaurants, Suga's has upscale Cajun classics like shrimp and grits, chicken and waffles, and fried catfish that are finger-licking good. Set in a historic building downtown, the upstairs jazz bar sets the mood for a night of revelry.
As the largest patio in Beaumont, Crazy Cajun is the area’s go-to for crawfish (when in season) with seats right next to the colorful mural dedicated to our local delicacy. Year-round, there are seafood platters like creative twists on local favorites like crawfish mac and cheese and boudin burgers.
Luke's Bar and Grill
Offering brews and barbecue, Luke's Bar and Grill is equipped with an outdoor setup perfect for the family and fido. Lawn games, a stage for live music, and one of the best happy hours in town make this smokehouse extra spicy. Don’t miss trying their famous grilled cheese donut sandwich.
Amelia Farm & Market
You’ve heard of farm-to-table dining, but Amelia is the opposite – a restaurant on the farm. A third-generation family-owned pecan farm, their sprawling grounds on Beaumont’s West End Beaumont boast a massive family-friendly patio with views of the fields. Patrons will enjoy fruity mixed drinks, homey dishes like locally-sourced pulled pork, and live music during the week.
Outfitted with industrial fans and a dual indoor-outdoor bar, Mellow Mushroom is the place to relax with a pie and beer. Their pizza is made with a signature Sweetwater dough that makes it all the more cravable, and the mule flights are always a crowd-pleaser.
Neches River Wheelhouse
For waterfront dining in Mid-County, Neches River Wheelhouse is the place to watch the boats come in while subtly drifting away. Expect stellar surf and turf, Cajun favorites, and craft cocktails on their newly expanded palapa patio that looks like a surf shack meets tiki hut.
Madison’s On Dowlen
A Southeast Texas staple, Madison’s is the area’s go-to any time of day. Their newly revamped pet-friendly, covered back patio features swings, loungers and double decker seating that's perfect for brunch or dinner. You can catch live music and deejays on any given night on the indoor and outdoor stages while you grub on burgers, wings, sandwiches, and salads.
Newly renovated, the patio at Dylan’s in Port Arthur is one of the best adult playgrounds in Southeast Texas with a true backyard party feel. Expect Mexican and American favorites like nachos, wings, and Southwest eggrolls that’ll taste all the better once the drinks get flowing.
5 Under Golf Center
Interactive gameplay and free-flowing refreshments make 5 Under Golf Center one of the most unique dining experiences in Beaumont. Home to Southeast Texas’ only double-decker outdoor setup, you can rent a bay to snack as you swing or eat, drink, and be merry on the standard patio (no golf required). They often have live music and unexpected menu items like injectable donuts.
Coastal views and Cajun eats are on the menu at High Tides in Bridge City. As one of the area’s only boat-in dining spots, the lively atmosphere will have you convinced you’re at a beach party. They recently added a Bloody Mary and oyster bar along with some extra shade and swings. Stop by for a cocktail or seafood platter and make it summer year-round.
Located in Beaumont's West End, Little Woodrow’s outdoor swings and fire pits are prime real estate for people watching and nighttime revelry. A rotating selection of food trucks feed hungry bar patrons while numerous televisions play the latest sports rivalry.
Pour Brothers Brewery
One of Southeast Texas’ newest microbreweries, Pour Brothers’ has a sprawling patio to lounge and play after pouring your own tasters from their innovative, high-tech tap wall. The next-door neighbors at New York Pizza & Pasta handle the pub grub and walk it right over to your table.
