The Best Patios and Outdoor Dining in Medina County


Medina County is the perfect place if you’re looking for a place to enjoy the outdoors while you indulge in a meal. Here are three restaurants that you can’t miss this patio season! 

The Oaks Lakeside is a casual lakeside dining restaurant and event venue in Chippewa Lake. This restaurant takes pride in the magnificent view of the lake view when sitting patio-side on a warm summer night! Some of the dishes that the restaurant is known for are the 12 oz. Manhattan Strip Steak and the Lemon Basil Shrimp Linguini. The Oaks Lakeside has a delightful brunch menu too and hosts live music on the weekends.

Twiisted Burgers & Sushi on Boardman Alley in Medina features craft burgers and sushi… Yep, you read that right! The concept of Twiisted is that the east meets west in cuisine, fusing traditional Japanese and American styles. The restaurant’s atmosphere is energetic, demonstrated in the food presentation, and dining outdoors on the patio is the ideal place to enjoy your meal. A few of the highly recommended dishes are the French Onion Meltdown Burger and the Embassy Roll. Twiisted Burgers & Sushi serves brunch, lunch, and dinner!

Gandalf’s Pub and Restaurant is Valley City should definitely be on your outdoor dining list! You’ll love the live music and Irish-American comfort food offered at this homey hangout. I highly suggest their Irish Nachos… They were voted the BEST SIDE DISH! Of course, you can’t go wrong with the Pub Burger either. Head to Gandalf’s Pub next time you’re looking for good drinks and grub on a patio!

Summertime is finally here, so take some time and enjoy and it outside having a delicious meal with your friends and family in Medina County!
