Cozy Outdoor Dining in Corvallis

Embracing the cold weather and eating outside can be tough, but here in the Willamette Valley, with our mild, rainy winters, it's just a little bit easier to cozy up outdoors and enjoy a meal. Especially with so many of our area restaurants rising to the challenge and providing covered, heated outdoor eating spaces!

Benton County restaurants are putting up tents, adding heaters and fire bowls to porches and decks, busting out propane heaters and heat lamps, and building warm, comfortable outdoor seating areas all around Corvallis, Monroe, and Philomath. If you're looking to sit down and enjoy some dinner (or breakfast, or lunch), there's no shortage of options.

Here's a quick list of nine restaurants in our area that are offering heated, covered outdoor seating.

1. 4 Spirits Distillery

4 Spirits offers outdoor dining on their heated porch, plus a delicious menu and a full drinks bar featuring their distilled spirits.

2. Cascade BBQ

Along with excellent BBQ, drinks, and occasional events and live music (social distanced, of course), Cascade BBQ offers outdoor dining under their pavillion-style, heated tent, with two open sides to encourage airflow.

3. Common Fields

Common Fields is Corvallis' new food truck pod, and they offer covered, heated outdoor seating, with heated benches. They offer a variety of food and beverages, including beer on tap, from different food trucks. Be sure to check out Kalamata Bistro and Terra's Tastee Treats!

4. Magenta

Magenta is offering a beautiful heated, covered space in front of their restaurant where you can enjoy lamb rack chops, tri tips bourguignon, and other delicious dinners.

5. McMenamins

Both of Corvallis' McMenamins locations are offering covered, heated seating - featuring open fire bowls, which makes for an extra-cozy experience.

6. Peacock Bar & Grill

This Corvallis institution is offering a covered, heated space right outside their restaurant where you can enjoy their burgers and other pub fare.

7. Sky High Brewery

Join Sky High on their heated rooftop patio for excellent food and great beer.

8. Tacovore

Kick back in Tacovore's pavilion-style, open-sided, heated tent and enjoy tasty tacos and excellent drinks.

9. Tommy's 4th Street Bar & Grill

Tommy's covered porch is heated for your enjoyment. Try their tasty homestyle pub fare and relax with a drink.
