Our Favorite Outdoor Dining Restaurants in Winston-Salem

The weather is getting warmer and we are thinking more and more about getting outside. If you are like us, this includes enjoying your favorite restaurants in an outdoor dining space that they may offer. What can be better than enjoying a great meal outside on a cool evening with maybe your favorite adult beverage? Springtime in the Winston area offers plenty of opportunities to enjoy this outdoor activity. Here are a few of our favorite outdoor dining options.

Finnegan’s Wake

Finnegan’s Wake is one of our most favorites, particularly for brunch. They provide a great outdoor area that is fenced in and looking up to a tree covered sky. Many of the tables have umbrellas that will help with the sun in the middle of the day. If you like eggs benedict, well they have the standard entree and three other types of eggs benedict that offer a tough choice. My daughter, Chloe, loves and always gets the Drew’s French Toast.

Finnegan’s also offers a great lunch and dinner menu with the Irish Pub favorites, like Shepherd’s Pie and Corned Beef and Hash. If you want to wash it down with an adult beverage, their beer menu is one of the best and is always updating with new options. Many whiskey and scotch whiskey options are coupled with mixed drink specials on a daily basis.

The Old Fourth Street Filling Station

The Old Fourth Street Filling Station is a wonderful outdoor dining venue in the heart of the historic West End of Winston Salem. It offers a large outdoor dining area with a significant piece covered. This area is great for large parties or maybe an event.

We enjoy this dining option best at night. It is well lighted and provides a great ambiance in conjunction with a great dinner menu and wine list. My wife, Brooke, has as her favorite their Filet Mignon paired with the Prisoner Red Blend from the Napa Valley. Always a great meal with a great wine selection for the perfect experience that is like being in your backyard outdoor living space at home.

Tanglewood Pizza Co.

If you love wood fired pizza, a casual outdoor atmosphere, great beers and live music, then this is a must place to eat. Tanglewood Pizza Co. is a great place to visit on a Thursday evening when they have live music going and you can sit back and enjoy great and unique wood fired pizza choices.

If you are like my daughter and just want the basic cheese pizza, well that choice is exceptional as well. My personal favorite is the Backwoods BBQ pizza paired with the Wicked Weed Pernicious IPA. I love that they support local farms in the area and breweries across the state. It shows in the quality of their pizzas, sandwiches and salads.

Outdoor Dining at Home in the Backyard

We love sitting outside while enjoying our dining experience, and these places offer a great outdoor environment and great food. We also enjoy doing this at home as well and want to stay bite free from mosquitoes, ticks and other outdoor biting pests. Mosquito Squad is the authority in providing a bite free and disease free backyard dining experience.
