Beat the heat with a cool drink at one of these great spots
Summer has finally arrived in the Leduc Region, and so has patio season! There’s no better time than the present to enjoy a bite to eat, cold drinks, and great company while soaking up the sun. Complete with awesome menu options, excellent service, and friendly atmospheres, a number of restaurants in the area have outdoor dining areas waiting to be discovered.
Here are some of our favorite patios in the Leduc Region you need to check out this summer.
Barney’s Pub & Grill
Featuring a beautiful, expansive patio and locally-sourced, made-from-scratch pub fare, Barney’s is the perfect spot for your next night out with friends. If that doesn’t convince you to visit them this summer, their one-of-a-kind pour-your-own Alberta craft beer wall will.
Must Try Starter: Barney’s Appy Platter (great for sharing – why pick just one when you can sample all of their faves?)
Must Try Drink: Grizzly Paw Beavertail Raspberry Ale (you’ll definitely be going back for a refill)
The Canadian Brewhouse
With a fun sports-themed atmosphere and specials for every day of the week, you can’t go wrong with a trip to The Canadian Brewhouse. Located in the heart of Leduc Common, this Alberta-favourite has a large patio, great food, and excellent service.
Must Try Starter: Face-off Fried Pickles (served with fresh, homemade tzatziki sauce)
Must Try Drink: Sangria (red, white, or rose, and all on special after 4:00 PM on Saturdays!)
Habaneros Mexican Grill
Located just off of Main Street, Habaneros’ patio is the perfect spot to escape to after a busy day of shopping and exploring downtown Leduc. With the sun beaming down from above, authentic food at your table, and a cold drink in your hand, you’ll actually feel like you’re in Mexico.
Must Try Starter: Camarones Mómias (shrimp stuffed with cheese and wrapped in bacon – the shrimp are so big it takes more than one slice of bacon to cover them!)
Must Try Drink: The Jalapeño Caesar (awarded Best Caesar in Northern Alberta by Mott’s Clamato!)
Also located in Leduc Common, Original Joe’s is another favorite spot for local patio lovers. With daily specials and a must-try brunch menu on weekends, your next trip to OJ’s is sure to be a great one.
Must Try Starter: Dragon Boat Lettuce Wraps (delicious and healthy!)
Must Try Drink: The Patio Joe (Malibu rum, peach schnapps, pineapple and peach juice, blended with ice)
Although located at the historic Leduc Golf & Country Club, you don’t have to be a golfer to enjoy Hackers Grill. Their menu is sourced from local businesses, and their spacious patio overlooking the 18th green is the perfect sunny to spot to relax after a busy day.
Must Try Starter: LGC Jenga Nachos (quality snacking material, available in both full and half sizes)
Must Try Drink: Rural Routes Brewing Co. Staycation Pineapple Blonde (refreshing, light, and perfect for patio sipping)
Kosmos Restaurant & Lounge
Proudly serving the community of Leduc since 1982, Kosmos has been a staple of the local food scene with their famous steak, prime rib and pizza for 36 years! Enjoy quality food and beverages, combined with excellent customer service that this restaurant is known for when you visit their comfortable patio this summer!
Must Try Starter: Chicken Wings
Must Try Drink: Classic Margarita
