Fort Wayne Outdoor Dining Options

The Deck

The Deck at the Gashouse

It’s finally the time of year where it’s warming up, and we can take our socializing outside. For me, the Indiana summers are just one more reason that I love where I live. There’s nothing I enjoy more than socializing, eating, and drinking in an outdoor space; and believe it or not, Fort Wayne offers plenty of outdoor dining options.

I did a series called Dining Al Fresco where I covered a handful of locally-owned places with outdoor dining. This time I’m going to condense it all into one amazing post of locally-owned, outdoor dining spots. But here’s the scoop, I don’t know everything! (I know, right. It is hard to believe!) I will need your help. If I missed one, let us know on Twitter or Facebook.
