Readers Vote: Louisville's 14 Best Outdoor Dining Spots

View as Map

Last week, Eater Louisville asked what's Louisville's best outdoor dining spot? Clearly there's something sacred about being able to eat outside: Eater received 33 responses (one for each year Christ was alive?). The holy trinity though was Decca, Holy Grale and Seviche, each getting multiple mentions. Still feel like a good alfresco dining spot was omitted? Navigate southward to the comments.

"Great in the evenings, even better when they have live music going." "Easily the most gorgeous al fresco in town, and maybe the nicest I've ever come across." "Their patio can be whatever you want it to be. Romantic dinner spot for 2, lively music venue, or just hanging out having drinks with some friends."

Holy Grale

"Nothing better than Holy Grale... feels like you're in the backyard you've always wanted." "Great beer garden!"

Seviche A Latin Restaurant

"guacamole made tableside and fresh ceviche and pisco sour....I'm in heaven!" "I was at Seviche this weekend and it was packed! There seems to be this energy there that I don't get anywhere else in town. Chef Lamas' personality and energy really comes through in his restaurant!" "Seviche has this NYC or LA kind of vibe that just makes it different. Love the music they play and in fact I saw a video where the whole dining room got up and danced. Now thats energy...I believe the chef is from LA, so I imagine it was his intensions to give it that vibe."

El Mundo

"It has a giant waterfall, nice lounge seating, and it is tucked away from the crazy of downtown...very relaxing."

Wine Studio at 610 Magnolia
