Bend’s Old Mill District offers plenty of options for dining in the sunshine.

It’s a topic of debate whether 13 is a lucky number. In the Old Mill District, we say it’s lucky. Lucky for us we’ve got 13 restaurants with patios perfect for dining in the Central Oregon sunshine! Check it out:

Sisters Coffee Co.

Coffee, beer, wine – you can enjoy it all in Sisters Coffee’s gorgeous new café that includes patio space and indoor-outdoor seating in the heart of the Old Mill District.

Anthony’s at the Old Mill District

Anthony’s beautifully landscaped riverside patio is the ideal spot to take in small plates and drinks with friends. Three firepits also make for great gathering spots well after the sun sets.

Greg’s Grill on the Deschutes

How’s dinner and drinks just across the river from the Hayden Homes Amphitheater sound? Yes, a great way to spend the evening.

Va Piano Vineyards Tasting Room

Is this heaven? No, it’s just phenomenal Walla Walla wine on a spectacular patio that looks out on the Deschutes River.

Flatbread Neapolitan Pizzeria

Flatbread’s outdoor seating on the north end of the Old Mill District offers plenty of ambiance. All the Naples vibes but with a Central Oregon flare.

Rapa Nui

Tiki drinks on the second-story patio of Rapa Nui are a whole new Bend tradition we highly endorse. The Asian-inspired tapas plates are spectacular, too.

Evoke Winery

The fun times extend to Evoke’s patio during the summer, which takes in views of the Old Mill District’s hot pond and northern footbridge.

Kona Mix Plate

PotatoMac and bulogi with a cold Kona Brewing beer were meant to be enjoyed outside. Kona’s new patio space makes this gloriously possible.

Ben & Jerry’s

I scream, you scream, we all scream for the amazing ice cream concoctions from our favorite Vermont hippies.


What’s not to love about Bend’s best margaritas outside in the Old Mill District on Hola!’s new patio? Great pre-game option before Hayden Homes Amphitheater shows.

Red Robin Gourmet Burgers & Brews

Celebrate the summer with a large wraparound deck that’s a great escape for families looking for some food and fun time.


Pastini and its two outdoor fireplaces along the Deschutes makes for an idyllic gathering spot with a crowd. And kids can roam in the nearby grass.

Come explore the outdoor dining options in the Old Mill District and we think you’ll find everything tastes better outside!
