Best Outdoor Patio Restaurants in Tucson

Finding a spot outside in Tucson to enjoy your meals and beverages doesn’t have to be difficult. While there are a few places here and there that offer outdoor seating, we’ve put together a list of outdoor patio restaurants in Tucson that boast a better atmosphere for that kind of arrangement. You’re welcome in advance!

Union Public House

4340 N Campbell Ave Ste 100, Tucson, AZ 85718

Made from scratch with local, sustainable ingredients, the fare at Union Public House is served in a stylish atmosphere that includes its large patio. Family dinners can be punctuated with live music out here, with a view of the St. Philip’s Plaza courtyard that really can’t be beaten!


9403 E Golf Links Rd, Floor 1, Tucson, AZ 85730

You can’t really go wrong with a patio restaurant that sports a variety of wings. This is especially true when that variety includes a Jamaican Jerk Dry Rub, Carolina BBQ sauce, and even some wings covered in a much-too-hot sauce like Ghostface Killah. On top of that, you can get steaks, fries, tacos, and soups — all alongside whichever cold one you want to drink as you sit outside and take in the fresh air!


434 N 4th Ave, Tucson, AZ 85705

All the best in Italian-American staples like pasta and pizza are combined with Italian sausages, homemade meatballs, or even shrimp to make meals worth savoring in the gorgeous outdoor patio area of Caruso’s. Whether you’re getting some manicotti, some chicken parmigiana, or a pie like the Caruso spectacular, you’re likely to enjoy it all the more when you’re outside enjoying the view!

Terraza Garden Patio & Lounge

There’s “Patio” in the name, and Terraza Garden Patio & Lounge lives up to that name. Not only are they a great place for an outdoor bite or drink at the resort Hacienda del Sol, but they’re also offering Tiki Tuesday once more, with live steel drum music and island-themed menu items! The rest of the week, feel free to enjoy the night breeze with some delectable, high-quality New American cuisine.
