These 12 Wisconsin Restaurants Have The Most Amazing Porches Where You Can Eat Your Meal
It’s kind of impossible to imagine weather warm enough to want to sit outside and soak up the sun right now, but at this point I’ll take any sign of hope for better weather.
We’ve already told you about some of the very best patios in the state, but this list is about porches. Big, wraparound porches that are cozy and welcoming and small, front-of-the-building stoops perfect for a couple of chairs and tables. There’s just something very homey about dining on a porch and these places are happy to welcome you to their family for a meal or two.
1. Casablanca - Milwaukee
Casablanca is on our patio list, but frankly you can call their upstairs outdoor spot and sidewalk tables anything you want. It's really one of the best outdoor spaces anywhere.
Located at 728 E Brady St, Milwaukee, WI 53202.
2. Robin's Nest Cafe - Hayward
This screened-in spot is super welcoming and a great way to let the outside in whether it's summer or winter up north.
Located at 11014 Co Rd B, Hayward, WI 54843.
3. Everly - Madison
Voted a best new restaurant in Madison, this porch has great heaters for slightly colder days that still let you enjoy some fresh air.
Located at 2701 Monroe St, Madison, WI 53711.
4. The Tin Plate - Sturgeon Bay
Door County is a great spot for outdoor dining and the Tin Plate has a cozy and eclectic little porch for you to enjoy.
Located at 4849 Glidden Dr, Sturgeon Bay, WI 54235.
5. Pine Brook Farm - Spooner
There's a lot to love outdoors at Pine Brook Farm. Dine on the warm porch and taste some of the amazingly grilled or fried foods prepared out in the open air!
Located at W4221 County Hwy A, Spooner, WI 54801.
6. Northwoods BrewPub - Osseo
The outdoor space here is giant and the garage-style doors open up the inside to the outside quite nicely, meaning everywhere you sit feels like you're on the porch!
Located at 50819 West St, Osseo, WI 54758. d
7. Mill Street Hideaway - Chaseburg
I love finding small, unexpected spot. This little joint is hidden away, but it's well worth a little trip to check it out.
Located at 9776, 107 W Mill St, Chaseburg, WI 54621.
8. Kristi's - New Glarus
Just slightly off the main drag in new Glarus, Kristi's is in a giant old house and the wrap-around porch is a perfect place to relax and unwind.
Located at 119 5th Ave, New Glarus, WI 53574.
9. The Old Feed Mill - Mazomanie
A historic porch in an amazing little artsy town, this is a great place to meet with friends!
Located at 114 Cramer St, Mazomanie, WI 53560.
10. The English Inn - Fish Creek
The porch and outdoor eating are here is nicer than a lot of restaurants. It's so high class and yet relaxing. I wish my backyard looked this good.
Located at 9630, 3713 WI-42, Fish Creek, WI 54212.
11. Moon Ridge Brewpub - Cornell
Great beer, better food and an awesome outdoor space near to Brunet State Park? I'm in!
Located at 501 Bridge St, Cornell, WI 54732.
12. Old Rittenhouse Inn - Bayfield
Really the standard by which I judge all other porches, this grand dame of a home is basically a dream and you can enjoy wine, an appetizer or dessert out here and watch the world go by.
Located at 301 Rittenhouse Ave, Bayfield, WI 54814.
