Ultimate List of Day Drinking Patios in Metro Detroit

day drinking patios in metro detroit

It’s that time of year…PATIO SEASON!

 

Temps are warming up, the sun is coming out, and you can feel the seasonal depression evaporating off of you!

 

There is (of course) a map for you at the end of this post!

 

If you see me out on one of these patios this summer, please do say hi!

Mike’s On The Water (SCS)

The coconut shrimp is so good! It comes highly recommended by many! You can also arrive by boat! πŸ˜‰

 

Anita’s Riverfront Grille (Marine City)

Award Winning Nachos!

Per their website:

Located on the St. Clair River in Marine City’s historic downtown. Anita’s offers gorgeous waterfront views while eating delicious American and Mexican cuisine in a family fun atmosphere. We invite you to enjoy dinner and cocktails on our beautiful riverfront deck while you watch the freighters float by. A great place to relax with friends or family and watch your favorite sporting event.

Your family can enjoy dinner from our affordable menu or you can enjoy a beer at the bar while you play keno. You will not want to miss our happy hour drink specials, stop in between 1:00pm – 5:00pm to see what fun drinks our bartenders have to offer. Looking for a fun night out? Stop in for dinner during one of our fun themed evenings!

 

Pepper Joe’s (St. Clair)

They have Duck Drinks here too!

Relaxing river views, and everything on the menu is fresh and made from scratch!

You can park your boat there and walk up to get drinks or you can drive and park. It’s on a canal (very cute).

 

St. Clair Inn (St. Clair)

Recently remodeled and should be opening! The Dive Bar is open!

The Dive Bar seriously has THE BEST food! If you see the smoked prime rib on special, you need to get there asap!

 

The Voyageur (St. Clair)

Epic views (waterfront), oysters, and a bowling alley!

Per their website:

We’re located on the St. Clair River where freighters pass close to shore.

Whether you come for lunch, dinner or a drink with friends, you’ll enjoy a breathtaking view (great from any table, thanks to The Voyageur’s large picture windows) as huge ocean-faring freighters glide by, only a matter of yards from your table!

Be accompanied by live piano music starting at 6pm every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. And on the street side, The Voyageur Sports Bar adds a bits of revelry, featuring Keno, several large screen televisions to view all the big games and a great menu.

 

River Crab Blue Water Inn (St. Clair)

Upscale dining on the St. CLair River. This place looks SERIOUSLY AMAZING!

Fresh sea food, steak, and pasta.

It is also an “Inn,” so you could make a whole romantic staycation out of it if you choose.

Cabana Blue (Clay)

I have heard amazing things about their chicken sandwich! The drinks are also very good along with the sunset views!

The Monarch Club (Detroit)

I have been wanting to dine here for SO LONG!

From their website: Taking inspiration from the famed mid-century rooftop bars of downtown Detroit—such storied haunts as the Savoyard, Recess and Top of the Flame—the Monarch Club reimagines these classic venues for the modern era. Commanding the penthouse of the meticulously restored Metropolitan Building, the Monarch Club is where refined relaxation meets the mystique of rediscovered grandeur. With iconic skyscrapers encircling, this rooftop hideaway is the perfect place to unwind while city lights twinkle around you. Behind the Monarch’s parapet and by the glow of candlelight, enjoy craft cocktails and enticing culinary offerings as your senses are awakened by views of a downtown metropolis that is at once familiar, yet strikingly new.

“Better than Bar Food”

The Royal Oak Brewery (Royal Oak)

Per their website: The Royal Oak Brewery, established in 1995, is Oakland County’s oldest brewpub. Located one block east of Main Street, it has become an area institution. The comfortable atmosphere and hometown feel make it a destination for locals and visitors alike. 

The brewery serves 7-9 fresh beers on tap daily, handcrafted on premise on our custom designed 14 barrel brewhouse. We proudly display our brewery behind our bar to create an atmosphere that allows our guests to experience our brewing operation up close. 

Along with our handcrafted beer we offer fresh cuisine, full bar and wine menu. In addition to comfortable indoor dining, we also offer a seasonal biergarten patio which has been repeatedly voted “Best Patio” in Metro Detroit. 

We are open five days each week during this time of restricted dining. Our heated outdoor Patio Biergarten is always open during our hours of operation, weather permitting. We also offer heated Curbside Igloo Dining. Call the brewery at 248-544-1141 during our hours of operation to book a slot in one of them. See you soon!
