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 fifteen restaurants in our area that are offering heated, covered outdoor seating. Thanks to the Corvallis Culinary Connections Facebook group and its members for these great suggestions. Article Photo: McMenamins on Monroe by Jennifer Moreland
