Missoula is heating up early this year and nobody wants to have dinner inside after a long day of yard work or fun in the sun. But you do have to eat, so here are some great places to grab a meal in Missoula where you can eat outdoors.

    Iron Horse

    Awesome menu and the best outdoor seating in town with a rad fire pit for evening drinks. Bonus: their Friday clam chowder is BOMB.

    Old Post

    Another really good menu of food served on the back patio. They have seating in the shade and the sun and their gyro salad is outstanding.

    The Depot

    Their dining deck isn't huge but if you can get a table it's a lot of fun, and walking distance to all of your favorite bars. Two words for ya' - shrimp wontons.

    Paradise Falls

    Or P Falls to the locals. They have upgraded their outdoor dining deck so it's nice and spacious and kid friendly!

    McKenzie River Pizza

    Pizza is always the perfect choice if you are dining out with a group. Their new location in the South Crossing shopping center has outdoor seating.

    Five on Black

    The place to get a unique menu of Brazilian food in Missoula now has a second location in the South Crossing shopping center. Their outdoor seating is a great place for drinks and appetizers after work.
