Located in Vineland Station, Lake House Restaurant features a stunning view of Lake Ontario as you relax in the sun with your favourite glass of Niagara wine. Pair it with the Mediterranean cuisine and transport yourself to a little village on the water in Italy while barely leaving your backyard! Head there for dinner and stay for a while to take in the breathtaking sunset over the lake. The restaurant itself is a stunning, centuries old Niagara home and said to be one of the first stops in the Underground Railroad. History, food, and basking in the sun.

Barrel House Grill at Peller Estates 

Niagara’s wine country has some spectacular patios, but none better than the Barrel House Grill at Peller Estates. Described as Niagara’s most picturesque patio, the view will make you feel like you’re in a vineyard somewhere in the south of France, but without that long pesky flight! Sit in the sun and enjoy sensational farm-to-table food from Chef Jason Parsons. Paired with delicious Niagara wine, this patio is a can’t miss this summer.  

dinner table

Lock Street Brewery  

Niagara is full of fantastic micro-breweries, but the patio at Lock Street Brewery may make it our favourite! This lush, green oasis is better described as a beer garden than a patio. You’ll be transported from your everyday troubles of kids, work, and stress into a gorgeous garden while enjoying the best local beers Niagara has to offer.
