The Ultimate Guide to Fayetteville’s Heated Patios

Warm meals out with friends in Fayetteville are a delight every winter, but in this season of pandemic life, we are extra into supporting local eats - with cozy outdoor seats!

A trip to Fayetteville in the winter usually means mild weather, but it can still get cold here, especially once the sun’s gone down. On those nights, we are ultra grateful to enjoy our favorite local restaurants on their heated patios! There are options in every corner of Fayetteville, accompanying most any cuisine you desire, so gather up your group and stake your claim on one of these warm, inviting outdoor dining patios.
