Time to bundle up!

We’re trying to determine who has the best outdoor dining in the Grand Rapids area. It’s time to make your vote count as part of our search for Michigan’s Best Outdoor Dining.

We took your local nominations over the last several days and compiled this list of more than 20 entries. Thank you so much.

Starting now you can vote once per email address, every three hours. (Poll below.) You can also write in your votes if we missed your favorite spot.

The deadline is 3 p.m. Friday, Jan. 29.

You can vote in all of our regional polls. Those links are below, too.

After the polls close we will be visiting several of our finalists to give a first-hand account of the outdoor dining experience. We’ll also be announcing all of the regional poll winners, as well as writing more stories in the next few weeks.

We can’t wait to see the innovation and creativity by Michigan restaurant owners who are working so hard to survive the Covid-19 pandemic.

If you have questions, feel free to email us.
