Your Outdoor Dining Guide: Eating Al Fresco in Walworth County

Summer looks a little different this year, but there are still plenty of Walworth County outdoor dining establishments ready to welcome you and your family!!

Restaurants have been hard at work developing safer new procedures to serve your family during this uncertain time, and outdoor dining–especially on a patio or deck– is a part of that plan for many of our favorite spots.

COVID 19 note: Restaurants are regularly modifying their hours and offerings. Please call ahead with each establishment to confirm operations are normal.
