Roseville Favorite Outdoor Patios

#4 Four way tie!

There are SO many awesome patios to choose from in Roseville that we had a four way tie in our number 4 spot. Joe Senser’s, Chianti Grill, AXELS Charhouse, and The Good Earth were all mentioned to have your favorite patio in Roseville and we’re happy to see them all make the list.

Joe Senser’s is known for their sports theme atmosphere and it continues out on their patio with views of their volleyball court.

The best way to enjoy Chianti Grill’s patio is with a glass (or bottle) of wine from their long list of wines.


“AXELS in Roseville had a nice patio on Mother’s Day. The brunch was awesome!” — Gwen B.

“Good Earth has a fantastic breeze that comes through on those perfect summer days, making it well worth visiting to enjoy those delicious meals.” — Jon M.


#3 New Bohemia

Rolling in at number 3 on the list you’ll find New Bohemia. What could top New Bohemia’s 20+ sausage menu? Their gorgeous indoor/outdoor patio! What makes their patio indoor/outdoor is their garage style doors that open when the weather is perfection… creating a BIG indoor/outdoor space for you and all of your friends. They also have 30+ beers on tap… CHEERS.

Coming in at number two, Grumpy’s Bar & Grill’s patio is an oasis full of tall, beautiful trees. There’s no way you could be grumpy when sitting on Grumpy’s patio in Roseville.

“I love Grumpy’s outdoor patio! It is sheltered from the busy roads and has greenery and lights. The awesome beer list and great food make it the best!!” — Valerie N.

#2 Psycho Suzi’s Motor Lounge

We’re not surprised that Psycho Suzi’s Motor Lounge, one of the more unique restaurants in Minneapolis made the list. Their riverfront patio is open all year; blankets and heaters are available in cold months but we think the tiki bar & craft cocktails will warm you up, too!

#1 WA Frost & Co.

We’ll just let Noreen say it all for WA Frost & Co. in Saint Paul. 

“My absolute favorite outside patio is a little ways out of Roseville, but just a skip away. The restaurant is WA Frost on Selby Ave in St. Paul. Just a huge patio. One end for diners, the other for relaxing after the theater for drinks and food while lounging on couches in front of their fire pit. Nighttime has lights strung throughout the patio. Just awesome! But, you will need reservations.” — Noreen H.
