Alfresco Dining on Ludington Patios

There's no better place than Pure Ludington to find fresh air, waterfront views and excellent entrees. So we've compiled a list of our favorite outdoor patios for you to enjoy!

Pub Patios and Beer Gardens

Ludingon’s top craft beer and spirits establishments feature inviting, outdoor spaces. Ludington Bay Brewing Company has a spacious 1,500-square-foot patio that is often the place to catch Ludington’s live, local musicians performing. The patio is also complete with a fire pit and fireplace if there’s a chill in the air. There are 24 beers on tap, and you won’t want to miss Summer Fling, a local crowd seasonal favorite. With the largest whiskey and scotch collection in the area, Barley & Rye has a cozy courtyard patio out back with twinkling lights. Patrons of the Mitten Bar - which serves 12 Michigan-brewed drafts - can cut through to the adjoining establishment and use the courtyard as well.

Waterfront Views

Want a view of the lake while sipping on a cocktail and indulging in a great meal? We’ve got you covered! Hit the large back deck of Jamesport Brewing Company for a breezy spot with views of Pere Marquette Lake and Lake Michigan. Seasonal favorites at the brewery are the Hefeweizen and Blueberry Wheat, and why not grab a crabby onion to go with your drink?

You might also enjoy the seasonally changing menu at Ludington’s classic establishment, P.M. Steamers, with a patio view of the Ludington marina and a variety of steaks and seafood. If you time it right, you may even get a glimpse of the SS Badger going in or out of port.

More Outside Dining

For a skyline view of the city, climb the hidden staircase to Over the Moon, Blu Moon Bistro’s rooftop patio, featuring a more casual menu from its downstairs counterpart, like lobster nachos and poutine. Additionally, a sidewalk patio at the street level serves food from the bistro menu - plus, your pooch can join you! Ludington’s newest fine dining establishment featuring Charleston-inspired dishes is Table 14, right on Ludington Avenue, where you can catch all the views of downtown while dining outdoors. Or try Italian favorite Luciano’s Ristoranti, right across the street, for award-winning pastas and pizzas. For a quieter corner, head around the block to Cafe 106 for a scrumptious brunch at an outside table.

Picnic Takeout

If you’re looking for headed to the park or beach, stop by Ludington Bay Brewing for a “beach box,” featuring a cold sandwich, chips and a side (or upgrade with an added six-pack of craft beer). Q Smokehouse also offers delicious hot meals like chicken, beef brisket, pork tenderloin and chipped pork, smoked daily on site. Grab a custom-built sandwich to-go and enjoy everything Ludington has to offer outdoors!
