If you've been looking for a restaurant where you can sit outside on a gorgeous patio, look no further.

Rochester has some amazing restaurants with outdoor seating.  Some of my favorites in town are downtown and offer large areas for gathering or spaces for live music.  Being comfortable and being surrounded by large planters and flower arrangements are also some of my own favorite things for outdoor seating.

I've got my own favorites, but what are the most popular patios in town?  I asked around, took phone calls, and got LOTS of messages on my Facebook and Instagram page and found the 11 most popular restaurants with patios in Rochester.  I'll be honest, I have not been to all of these but now that these were shared with me multiple times, I am wanting to go visit every single one and support local even more.

Top 11 Restaurants With Patios in Rochester

What restaurant patio is your favorite in Rochester?  I'd love to hear what your favorite is.  Please, send me a message on my Facebook page (Jessica On The Radio) or DM me on Instagram and let me know what your favorite restaurant patio is and why you love it so much.  Is it the seating?  Do they have live music that you enjoy?  Maybe the food is just mouth-watering and you dream about it all week long?

To all the restaurant owners and those who are working hard at the restaurants, with a patio or not, thank you!  These last few months have been tough, especially for you, and I'm just truly thankful for the hard work that you do every day for everyone in our community and our visitors in Rochester.
