My husband and I went out to eat last night at Bistecca At The Granary and to my surprise there was a patio! I love when the late Spring and Summer show up and you get go grab a bite to eat at 5:30 P.M. and are able to sit outside and enjoy the warm sunny evening. However, as I am trying out many of the restaurants here in Billings, I have noticed many don't offer outdoor eating arrangements!

I know that Montana Brewing Company has a patio and the restaurant out on the west end The Divide Bar & Grill also has very nice outdoor dining but that is all I have run into so far. I'm surprised with how nice the weather gets that that wouldn't be more popular! I know one of my favorite things in Seattle was to head to anywhere near the water, grab a table and enjoy the sun.  Hopefully I run into a few more before the weather gets really nice so I can have some options!
