Sit-down dining options couldn’t return at a better time – with the summer weather here at last, these five restaurants are a must with their open patios and diverse cuisines. A culinary bucket list, if you will.
Right on the riverfront by the drawbridge, settle in with a mexican soda and delicious Zarape or the Azteca special at Pacifico in Sheboygan. “Fresh, hearty, and simply unforgettable” is their goal, and combined with the view, I think it’s safe to say that goal is achieved.
Just a little ways away from the Mexican cuisine of Pacifico, you can hop “across the pond” to the UK. As you walk through the restaurant to the outdoor seating, take a moment to explore the memorabilia and pictures on the warm wooden walls. Outside, enjoy the riverfront sights and sounds, wave to passerbys, and propose a toast to food and friends!
