State & Main Kitchen & Bar Patio

State & Main’s south side patio gets sun all day! So if you’re lacking vitamin D or just need some heat, give them a visit and try out some summer specials. What about the Royal Bangkok Bowl and Spicy Thai Salad (did they know my favorite food is asian??!) Or, if beer and a steak sandwich is more your thing, they have that too. Happy hour is 2-5 pm; 9 pm-close.

Check out State & Main GP’s facebook page for more events and specials

Earls Grande Prairie Patio

The Earls Grande Prairie patio can be used year round with rolling glass garage doors that can be raised in the summer. This seating area is always beautifully decorated and feels like a lush oasis with greenery, hanging lights, and water features. And for cooler days, there are heaters! The patio at Earls in Grande Prairie is definitely one of my favorites in this city!

Earls has daily specials, but we especially like their happy hour menu (everyday from 2-5 pm; and 9pm -close) which has some fantastic deals! Check out their online menu here.

Our kids often get margherita pizzas for less than 5 bucks and I love the 3 Street Chicken Tacos!

Browns SocialHouse Patio – GP

Check out Browns patio and try their amazing eats! They will be adding new furniture to their patio soon!

I love the variety of food on the menu at Browns SocialHouse. My hubby can opt for his favorite go-to (a burger!) while I can get an asian inspired Dragon Bowl!

Another patio I’ll have to try out now that we are getting some heat! Red Rock’s patio has a rock/glass wall that would be a great block on a day with some of that famous GP wind! Love smoked meats and southern BBQ?! This is the place to get it!

Shark Club Sports Bar and Grill Outdoor Patio

Located right downtown with unobstructed street views, the patio at the Shark Club is great for people watching! (Or if you’re dressing up and want to be seen – this patio is hip and exciting!)
