CLEVELAND – We all really long for summer, don’t we? It means days on the lake, tan lines, and of course, a great meal on a patio. And our restaurants yearn for the same goal of generating revenue and getting more people to eat again. That’s why we’ve rounded up the top 10 courtyards to have fun this summer. Check it out, try them all!
South Side: 2207 W 11th St, Cleveland
The South Side is a gourmet eatery disguised as a friendly neighborhood pub. The cook Natasha Pogrebinsky brings the “gastro” to a restaurant with dishes such as sack of tuna, kimchi bibimbap and Greek meatballs with tzatziki. These tasty dishes can be enjoyed together with an unbeatable weekend brunch on one of the largest and most comfortable terraces in Tremont.
The Harp: 4408 Detroit Ave, Cleveland
For a city on a large lake, Cleveland surprisingly lacks lakeside restaurants. Fortunately, there is the harp, which offers an uninterrupted view of Lake Erie from the chair. The popular pub offers a welcome mix of Irish staples like fish and chips and corned beef boxty, as well as American classics like burgers and wraps.

Flying Fig: 2523 Market Ave, Cleveland
Market Avenue will again be closed to through traffic this summer, transforming this short passage into an extended terrace for business tenants on the street. That means diners can enjoy chef Karen Small’s incomparable seasonal bistro fare al fresco, even after the handful of tables on the small sidewalk terrace by Flying Fig have already been claimed.

La Dolce Vita: 12112 Mayfield Rd, Cleveland
There maybe no better place to sit and watch the world go by than the walkway terrace of La Dolce Vita. Little Italy can be seen from this prime corner point, where the food blends in seamlessly with its surroundings. Here, diners enjoy sumptuous Italian dishes like cacio e pepe, gnocchi with pesto, and seafood pasta, all washed down with soul-satisfying bottles of Chianti.
Luxe: 6605 Detroit Ave, Cleveland
Management transformed a former parking lot in the Detroit Shoreway into one of the city’s most attractive restaurant terraces. Guests leave the real world behind when they step into this garden oasis, where large parasols offer shade from the sun, an outdoor bar conjures up refreshing cocktails and the menu offers an appealing mix of Italian and Mediterranean small plates and starters.

Nuevo Mod Mex: 1000 E 9th St, Cleveland
We have the people at Nuevo Modern Mexican to thank for building one of the hottest lakeside restaurants in Cleveland. This modern structure made of glass, wood, and steel – just a short walk from the Rock Hall – offers breathtaking views of the harbor, lake, and city skyline. These views include modern Mexican dishes like mole empanadas, mushroom and leek tamales, and braised short ribs with tamarind.
Flight Cleveland: 5712 Detroit Ave, Cleveland
When Flight opened its doors in the Detroit Shoreway neighborhood, there was something to celebrate for wine lovers. This amazing wine bar does it top to bottom including the sharp terrace. Outstanding wine flights and glass castings come from the shiny 29-bottle Cruvinet system. Or go the bottle route which sells at retail prices with a reasonable cork fee.

All Saints Inn: 1261 W 76th St, Cleveland
All Saints Public House inherited one of Cleveland’s most famous courtyards – from Snicker’s to Reddstone to graffiti – and was able to improve on almost every aspect of it. The picturesque landscape is adorned with towering trees, a fireplace and a gurgling water feature. It’s the ideal place in Battery Park to enjoy happy hour with friends or a leisurely date for two.
17 River Grille: 17 River St, Chagrin Falls
We didn’t think the view of Chagrin Falls could be improved. I mean how does that even happen? But that’s exactly what veteran restaurateur Rick Doody managed to do after receiving the keys to Chagrin’s most famous place. A major overhaul has been carried out both inside and out to improve views of the falls and completely remodel the cantilever patio seating, which is so close to the water you might want to bring an umbrella.

Garden City: 3386 Tuttle Rd, Shaker Heights
This swanky rooftop lounge is located above the Kindred Spirit restaurant in the Van Aken district. It’s an amazing vantage point from which to take in the scene, which includes bustling restaurant terraces, a hopping Mitchell’s ice cream parlor, and a grassy park full of kids. Enjoy small plates from below, paired with creative cocktails put together by enthusiastic professionals.
