We look back on a year of great dining in the great outdoors in Woodbury.

With a wide range of outdoor patios throughout Woodbury—from bars and grills to bakeries, cafés and restaurants—there’s no reason to dine indoors. Take your table outside and savor every last bite of summer.

Tamarack Tap Room
Tamarack Tap Room was created with a vision and passion for serving the good people of Woodbury the finest craft beers, libations and food. With a 200-seat patio, enjoy truffle fries, fried green tomatoes or street tacos. The menu also features handcrafted burgers, wood-fired flatbreads, small plates and sliders. Tamarack Tap Room has something for everyone: a kids’ menu, happy hour and weekly specials.

Cravings Wine Bar & Grille
Dine al fresco at Cravings and watch the sun set as you enjoy a delicious meal. Made from the freshest ingredients, menu items include fresh seafood, handmade pasta and house-cut steaks. In the summer and fall months, many ingredients come straight from the farmer’s market. The spacious patio is decked with grapevines and foliage, making for a perfect date-night setting or a fun space for girls’ night out. Choose from a spectacular selection of house-made desserts. Happy hour specials start the party from 3 to 6 p.m.

Keys Café and Bakery
For the from-scratch recipes that remind you of childhood brunch at grandma’s or your favorite after-school snack, swing by Keys Café & Bakery. Take your breakfast out to the patio any time of day or try the popular summer salad, a customer-requested item that is now on the main menu. Relax with a cold beer or wine, or attempt to choose between a coconut cream pie and seven layer bar. Recent patio renovations brought in high- and low-top tables, new flowerpots and an updated color scheme.

Carmine’s Restaurant & Bar
The patio at Carmine’s Restaurant & Bar joined the Woodbury patio scene last summer. With furniture made of poly lumber, which is created from recyclable plastic (like milk cartons), the restaurant supports green alternatives and is environmentally conscious. From open until close, guests can enjoy full dining and drink service out on the patio. Live music adds to the dining experience every Friday and Saturday in the bar area, covering everything from classic rock to current hits.

O’Malley’s Irish Pub
Summer evenings on the patio at O’Malley’s Irish Pub are filled with good food, cold beer and jukebox favorites. Having built most of the bar by hand, the owners of O’Malley’s are proud to share the pub with the Woodbury community. Lots of flowers and climbing vines, patio lighting and Guinness umbrellas set the scene for a laid-back evening at the pub. Enjoy a strawberry chicken salad, a crisp Caesar, fish and chips or a classic burger, and sip on a mixed drink, wine or authentic Irish beer.

T. Morris Pub & Grill
If dining and drinking al fresco are what you’re looking for, the patio at T. Morris Pub & Grill has you covered, complete with a beautiful view of the Prestwick Golf Club’s greenery. The T. Morris patio overlooks Prestwick’s 18th hole, and it boasts a sweeping view of the greens. Tall trees frame both sides of the fairway, potted flowers and plants adorn the stone patio, and a small stream runs and babbles nearby. When night falls, the string lights sparkle and shine. Between the resurrected two-for-one golfer specials, daily happy hours and brand new loyalty program, there are plenty of deals to make it worth your while. Whether it’s a beer with friends after work or a romantic date-night dinner, there’s no better place in Woodbury to enjoy the best that patio season has to offer.

When it comes to dinner, there are plenty of options to choose from as well, from shrimp scampi to their Southern fried chicken and walleye, or a good old-fashioned steak.
