The snow last weekend was not an appreciated visitor in my house. I’m looking forward to those 70 degree days ahead.

If you’re looking to explore a new place to dine, these are my personal favorites for best outdoor dining options. If you disagree, please feel free to comment below!

  • Best Ladies Night Out — Bear Branch Tavern
  • Best Date Night — Clarity
  • Best Family Friendly Spot — Taco Bamba/Mod/Foster’s Grille plaza (even the pickiest eaters can find something)
  • Best Place to Watch a Game — Vienna Inn
  • Best Lunch — The Sandwich Shop
  • Best Breakfast — The Virginian
  • Best Coffee — Tie between Simply Social and Caffe Amouri
  • Best Pizza — PizzaRoni, Tony’s or Santini’s (Oakton nod!)
  • Best Margarita — Mama Tigre
  • Best Causal Meeting Spot — Caboose

We’re lucky in Vienna to have so many good restaurants, but not all of them have outdoor seating unfortunately. So there are plenty of other restaurants that I love, but this is just a focus on outdoor seating options.
