My Chelan Vacation

Lake Chelan Restaurants

With 300 days of sunshine a year, Chelan offers the perfect climate to escape from the rain and get a dose of vitamin D. In a food and wine destination like Chelan, that means patios.

From fine dining to classic drive-in-style fast food, here are the best restaurants with patios in Lake Chelan.

Lake Chelan Winery

Just a short drive from the center of town, Lake Chelan Winery offers expansive grounds with stunning views of the lake, a delightful tasting room with free samples of local wines and cheeses, and dog-friendly patio seating. 

Sorrento's Ristorante at Tsillan Cellars

Discover a taste of Tuscany in North Central Washington at the warm and romantic Sorrento's Ristorante on the lake. Fine Italian dining, perfect wine pairings, and incredible views of Lake Chelan combine to give you one of the best dining experiences in the area at Tsillan Cellars. 

Lakeview Drive-In

With all of the delicious, thick-cut French fries you can dream of (seriously—they come in buckets!), homemade tartar sauce, and an expansive patio with scenic views, this dog-friendly burger joint right on the lake knows how to please. Open since 1957, the Lakeview Drive-In is a favorite of locals and out-of-towners alike. Make sure to try one of their famous shakes!
Campbell Veranda
Campbell's Pub & Veranda

Campbell's Pub & Veranda

Campbell's Pub & Veranda is a Chelan classic! Once home to the original Campbell Hotel, this historic eatery has plenty of outdoor seating and an outstanding menu ranging from upscale pub fare to seasonal fine dining (think Parmesan truffle fries and fresh Copper River salmon).  

Blueberry Hills Farm

Only about a 20-minute drive from downtown Chelan, the family-friendly Blueberry Hills Farm in nearby Manson boasts a barn-inspired interior and an outdoor deck with sweeping views of the blueberry fields and mountains. Grab some soft-serve ice cream topped with blueberries to enjoy out on the deck, and afterward, pick your own fresh berries in the field.

For a more romantic dining option in Manson, spend your evening at Wapato Point Cellars, sampling delicious varietals of Washington wine. With a warm and inviting tasting room and an exquisite outdoor patio, the natural beauty of this area is unmistakable. 

Local Myth Pizza

Dogs and humans are welcome to sit out on the Local Myth patio, where you can people-watch and enjoy the fresh air. Start with the Capri sundae (think Caprese salad), then dig into a huge pizza pie or calzone. 
Fox & Quail Cafe

The Fox & Quail Cafe

If you're searching for fresh food and quick service in downtown Chelan, you can't beat this sunny spot. With a mostly made-from-scratch menu and wonderful panini sandwiches, The Fox & Quail Cafe is perfect for a breezy lunch date outside on the patio.   

Quick Wok

Tucked away on Woodin Avenue at the end of the main downtown stretch, this unassuming Chinese joint offers a small selection of shaded patio seating and fantastic food. Many vegan and vegetarian options are available, and the friendly staff at Quick Wok is always happy to give you a helping hand with any special dietary needs.
