One of the true pleasures of summer is being able to enjoy a meal outdoors. Plus, it makes the meal even better when you don’t have to prepare it yourself! To make sure that you celebrate summer as it was intended, here is our list of restaurants where you can enjoy outdoor dining in Bloomsburg, PA.
Turkey Hill Brew Company
991 Central Rd, Bloomsburg PA | (570) 387-8422
Of course, we are a bit prejudiced, but we think sitting out on the patio at the Turkey Hill Brewing Company, sipping a great craft brew along with a daily special (like Grilled Cheese Tuesday and Weekend Specials), and then being able to stroll back to your room, is perfect! Especially when there is live music playing in the background.
991 Central Rd, Bloomsburg PA | (570) 387-1501
If you are looking for a bit more refined atmosphere, but still with the convenience of proximity to your guest room, the patio of the Farmhouse Restaurant is what you’re looking for. Recently renovated to give you a view of the duck pond, enjoy an elegantly prepared meal in quiet surroundings.
West End Ale House
117 W Main St, Bloomsburg PA | (570) 784-3500
What says summertime more than beer and burgers? Definitely pick burgers here, since the ones at West End Ale House were voted as one of PA’s best! There are lots of other choices, with some original starters like Mac ‘n Cheese Bombs and Pickle Chips.
Marley’s Brewery and Grille
323 Columbia Blvd, Bloomsburg PA | (570) 784-9600
A patio with twinkling lights and umbrella-topped tables makes for a comfortable outdoor dining experience at Marley’s Brewery and Grille.

Over in Danville, the Old Forge Brewing Company offers outdoor seating out front and a great selection of cool brews inside. The menu produces a large listing of burgers, in addition to sandwiches, and seven or so entrées.

Ricketts Glen Hotel
221 State Rte 118, Benton PA | (570) 477-3656
If dining amid the beauty of a park sounds appealing, head over to Ricketts Glen State Park and the Ricketts Glen Hotel. The outdoor patio here is a lovely place to enjoy an evening meal.

Right next to Knoebel’s Amusement Park, and inside the building of Rohrbach’s Farm Market, is Big Dan’s BBQ. Satisfy your hunger for slow-smoked, authentic barbecue — chicken, ribs, brisket, or pulled pork! Sides include cornbread, coleslaw, potato salad, and more.
Brennan’s Big Chill
232 Iron St, Bloomsburg PA | (570) 387-1988
You can’t talk summer without talking ice cream, and Brennan’s Big Chill is the place to find indulgent homemade flavors! Just thinking about flavors like Peach Melba, Chocolate Cream Pie, or Jelly Donut makes your mouth water.
