There’s something special about eating a meal while enjoying the fresh air outside. It can even contribute to your well-being, especially when there are plants nearby. During the pandemic, outdoor seating has been a lifeline for many restaurants, allowing them to serve both takeout and on-site dining.

Many also took the opportunity to show off their personality with decorations and furniture that matched their mood. Do you like a luxurious artificial garden? Or are you more into lawn chairs and a tiki vibe?

Globally, many people probably associate outdoor dining with cafes in European cities or street food stalls in Asia. Travelers and locals often spend hours drinking coffee and enjoying delicious and inexpensive food. In the US, outdoor seating can be small tables, semi-private corners, or communal seating for the masses, like in a beer garden. The key to a good outdoor table is shade from the sun and, in urban settings, walls or barriers that can reduce exhaust fumes and noise from nearby car traffic.

Restaurants can also highlight other benefits – like a great view. The coronavirus pandemic also increased demand for outdoor heaters so restaurants can continue to serve meals outdoors during the colder seasons. All of these adjustments have led to more Americans rediscovering the joys of dining outdoors, away from the noise indoors.

While much of the outdoor seating may have declined since the return to pandemic-era “normalcy,” many restaurants still have their prized patio tables ready for guests. Stacker compiled a list of the top-rated restaurants with outdoor seating in Springfield using data from Yelp. The rankings take into account average rating and number of reviews. Read on to see if your favorite spot is on the list.
