Outdoor Dining in Las Vegas: A Guide to the Best Restaurants

Las Vegas is a city that offers a variety of outdoor dining options for visitors and locals alike. From the Strip to downtown, there are plenty of restaurants that offer outdoor seating with stunning views of the city. Whether you're looking for a casual burger joint or a fine dining experience, there's something for everyone. Caesars Entertainment offers several restaurants with outdoor options.

The Green Fairy Garden, located next to Absinthe's Spiegeltent performance space at Caesars Palace, offers outdoor dining with a menu of hamburgers, potatoes, cocktails and more. Visitors can enjoy Italian food by celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis with a California touch at GIADA at The Cromwell, which offers views from the rooftop of Las Vegas Boulevard through retractable windows. Guy Fieri's Vegas Kitchen & Bar at The LINQ Hotel+ Experience, which features the Food Network star's classic version of bar food, has a 6,500 square foot patio amidst the action of the center of the Strip. Nearby, The LINQ Promenade offers several outdoor spaces along its bustling street, such as Chayo Mexican Kitchen + Tequila Bar and Virgil's Real Barbecue.

The longtime favorite Mon Ami Gabi in Paris Las Vegas offers people watching on the Strip in its Parisian-inspired courtyard, while the resort's rooftop Beer Park offers elevated views with beers and classic bar snacks. Cabo Wabo Cantina, Sammy Hagar's Mexican rock and roll restaurant, also offers visitors an outdoor terrace at the Miracle Mile stores at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. Looking for a restaurant with acclaimed food and attractive outdoor dining? Las Vegas has it all! This desert city has been incorporating patios and outdoor tables in its restaurants for years, and that trend continues to gain strength. On the Strip, patios are ubiquitous and many restaurants offer seating with views of the famous boulevard.

If you're looking for juicy burgers that you won't soon forget, Black Tap Burgers & Beer is a safe bet, plus the outdoor patio overlooks the Venetian outside and is at street level with the Strip. Open-air dining in Las Vegas encompasses all types of restaurants, from those that serve filet mignon to hamburger restaurants. The charming little Carson Kitchen in downtown Las Vegas was one of the first restaurants to take root in ongoing efforts to transform downtown into a sleek, modern place to hang out. So far, those efforts have been very successful.

The quiet environment of Carson Kitchen is wonderful for lunch when you want to talk and enjoy a glass of good wine. In addition to an indoor seating area, Carson Kitchen also has an outdoor rooftop bar area and a patio, both great places to enjoy a cocktail and a meal. Popular social dishes include devil's eggs, topped with crispy bacon and caviar, or veal dumplings with sherry foie gras cream. The beverage menu includes a wide selection of wines and beers, along with a selection of finely crafted cocktails.

Black Tap Burgers & Beer specializes in big, juicy burgers with all the extras. Located next to the Venetian poker room, this casual restaurant features a bar, indoor dining room, and patio with views of the Strip. In addition to its quality hamburgers, Black Tap also offers chicken dishes, salads, smoothies (with the option of adding alcoholic beverages) and craft beer. Their tasty burgers range from the standard All-American Burger - made with premium beef from Pat Ladrieda - to The Greg Norman - made with wagyu beef, aged cheddar cheese, a crispy onion ring, bacon, Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce and mayonnaise.

The relaxed atmosphere is ideal for quick meals at any time of the day. Not all Las Vegas fine dining restaurants are located on or near Las Vegas Boulevard.
