Get Your Patio Fix

Nothing says warm weather like heading to your favorite restaurant or bar and seeing a sign for the patio that reads “Now Open”. We suggest taking full advantage of this by spending some time on the patio and getting your daily allotment of Vitamin D. Once again, we worked hard “testing out” the area’s top terraces and narrowed down some of the best patios in Overland Park for you. Read on and see where we think the best patio to soak up some rays in OP is.

The Contenders

There is a patio for every occasion. A relaxing morning cup of tea, catching a game at a rooftop sports bar, or even eating dinner al fresco at an award-winning restaurant. One of the patios below is sure to fit the bill in any case.

  • Maloney's – If you need the option of multiple patios in one location, this is your spot. With a rooftop patio as well as ground level patios, there is plenty of outdoor seating for a crowd.
  • Rock & Brews – Want to take your pup along with you to eat outside? Rock & Brews is the perfect dog friendly patio to grab food and a drink with your four legged friend.
  • Strang Hall – An outdoor bar, expansive seating options, and cornhole. You could easily spend hours on the Strang Hall patio.
  • Aubrey Vineyards – What sounds better than a glass of wine overlooking a vineyard? Nothing? Then this is the patio for you.
  • Coach’s – In town for a sports tournament? Coach’s Bar & Grill has a large rooftop patio just a few blocks away from Scheel’s Soccer Complex to unwind after a day of cheering on your team.
  • Pinstripes – This shaded patio is a little oasis in Prairiefire. If you want a change in scenery, check out their rooftop patio with a firepit and bocce.
  • Buffalo State Pizza & Co. – Go for the pizza, stay for the patio. When the weather is nice, you will be hard-pressed to find a spot on the patio at this Downtown Overland Park staple.

And The Winner Is

This versatile patio has everything you could ever want. The unofficial winner of the best patio in OP goes to Strang Hall.


While Strang Hall is most commonly known for their collection of top notch restaurants all under one roof, their patio is a major reason people are flocking to Strang Hall. Even though we call it a patio, it may be better described as an outdoor dining experience. You can belly up at the bar, grab a picnic table under and umbrella, grab a seat on the outdoor couch, or head to the grass and grab an adirondack chair.  

Whether you are planning your first or tenth trip to Overland Park, the patio at Strang Hall is a must. No reservations needed here, just head down to Strang Hall in Downtown OP when you are ready.
