The incredible natural beauty of the Rockies, along with the pristine mountain air, enhances every waking moment of a Beaver Creek vacation. Meal times are no exception, especially when you score a patio seat with a view at one of the best Beaver Creek restaurants for outdoor dining. Popular Beaver Creek patio restaurants range from full-service fine dining to grab-and-go spots, so there's a delightful al fresco venue to suit all appetites. 


Mirabelle, one of the most celebrated Beaver Creek patio restaurants, resides in a circa-1898 farmhouse in the village. It has been a local fine-dining landmark for more than 40 years. Owner and Master Chef Daniel Joly is a veteran of multiple Michelin-Star European restaurants. He sources much of the restaurant's produce from Mirabelle's on-site kitchen garden and greenhouse and creatively showcases these ultra-fresh seasonal ingredients.  

Produce-forward side dishes representing the best of the day's harvest are just as enticing as mains like grilled Colorado lamb chops or a beautiful piece of halibut. Choose the four-course menu with optional wine pairing, or order a la carte.  


Boasting the freshest seafood in the Rockies, Hooked guarantees that all the fish on its menu is flown into Beaver Creek within 24 hours of swimming in the ocean. The Beaver Creek Village restaurant features its signature seafood in casual creations like po'boys and poke bowls on the lunch menu. Another draw for seafood fans is custom whole fish preparations (both cooked and raw) on the all-day menu. Hooked also has a full sushi list, plus inventive shareable dishes from the land and sea.  

Don't miss the chance for some of the most enticing outdoor dining in Beaver Creek at Hooked's seasonal outdoor tiki bar. Beers, wines, handcrafted cocktails, and the full food menu take on a Polynesian spin for the summer. 

Alpine + Antlers 

It always feels like a special occasion when you dine in at one of the chicest Beaver Creek patio restaurants, Alpine + Antlers. A summertime meal on the patio, which offers seating around a large, sculptural fire pit, is even more of a treat.  

This signature restaurant of Beaver Creek Lodge specializes in wood-fired Colorado cuisine.  

Stop in for al fresco dining in Beaver Creek at breakfast time. You could start your day with delightful dishes like pancakes or brisket hash. Smoothies, juices, and parfaits feature on the breakfast menu as well. A few stand-out items that might feature on the dinner menu include artistic salads and venison tenderloin with foraged mushrooms. 

Coyote Cafe 

Coyote Cafe is a local favorite destination for outdoor dining in Beaver Creek. The casual all-day eatery has served top-notch Mexican and American cuisines since 1983. It's also open late for drinks, including local Colorado craft beers and specialty margaritas. Located close to the Centennial lift, Coyote Cafe's patio is an ideal spot for feasting after a day of adventure on the mountain.  

Share an order of nachos, available in half a dozen versions, or tempting tacos — four to an order and slathered in house-made sauces. The cafe also offers a kids' menu, making this one of the best Beaver Creek patio restaurants for families. 


The modern, Mediterranean-inspired cuisine at Citrea is especially tempting on a sunny day. So is the restaurant's patio in the heart of Market Square in Beaver Creek Village. Mountain views and people-watching go perfectly with the sophisticated menu options, whether for lunch, dinner, or après.  

The creative cuisine at Citrea is prepared with fresh, local ingredients. Consider shared plates and starters representing Mediterranean classics like olives, hummus, house-made pita, and lamb meatballs. The pizzas are always popular, with options typically including a perfect Margherita and white pizza topped with local goat cheese. Sophisticated entrees change often but might include seared scallops with porcini brodetto or lamb osso bucco with lentils and smoked baba ganoush. 

8100' Mountainside Bar & Grill 

The expansive covered patio at 8100' Mountainside Bar & Grill features heaters, TVs, and incredible views of the Vail Valley. This upscale Beaver Creek patio restaurant is part of the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek Resort and Spa, with an unrivaled setting at the base of the Haymeadow Express Gondola. The prime location complements the breakfast, lunch, and bar menus built around sustainable, locally sourced ingredients.  

A highlight among the lunch offerings is the "best chili on the mountain." An array of elevated sandwiches, burgers, and salads comprise the rest of the lunch menu.  

After a meal, consider a drink at the resort's Brass Bear Bar. It boasts a patio with the largest outdoor fire pit in the valley. 

Spruce Saddle 

Spruce Saddle is one of the most scenic and versatile restaurants with outdoor seating in Beaver Creek. The cafeteria-style venue is on the mountain, accessible via the Centennial Express Lift. Choose grab-and-go options such as artisan deli sandwiches and salads, or order hearty comfort food classics such as burgers, chili, and grilled cheese sandwiches from the American grill. The restaurant offers indoor dining, but its outdoor seating options are always excellent for enjoying drinks or a meal with prime slopeside views. 

Beano’s Cabin 

Beaver Creek Resort’s most celebrated restaurant is Beano’s Cabin, set in an alpine meadow at the base of Larkspur Bowl. It even ranks among the best in Colorado for its luxury log cabin atmosphere and impeccable cuisine. Items on the five-course menu star local and organic ingredients, including the freshest summer produce from the chef’s on-site garden.  Menus change frequently but typically start with house soups, inventive salads, and several uncommon entree options such as elk, bison, and quail. Beano’s Cabin also has an award-winning wine list, so be sure to ask for pairing suggestions.
