Cheers to the Roadhouse Park!

Make our new outdoor space part of your summer sipping routine.

Enjoy the view, the breeze and the social distance at the Roadhouse Park. Here at Zingerman’s Roadhouse, we offer plenty of colorful umbrella-covered picnic tables (seats up to 90!) among the raised garden beds and trees out front. Now anyone can enjoy a roadside picnic! But the seating isn’t just for enjoying precious pit-smoked BBQ or tasty breakfast tacos to-go. Now the bar comes to you! Sip one of our favorite Michigan beers or a fresh strawberry daiquiri in the beautiful park. Plus, there’s free unlimited wi-fi and dogs are welcome at our outdoor park. What’s not to like?!


The Roadhouse Park is perfect for those who feel more comfortable dining outdoors during this time. Our picnic tables are well spaced and sanitized by our staff during each use. The Roadies will be wearing masks and we ask that you do too, when not seated at your table.


Here’s how it works. Head to the walk-up window at the Roadshow, our teapot trailer in front. Place your to-go order for wine, beer, cocktails, sodas, and food there. When your order is ready, we’ll bring it to the picnic table of your choice. The drinks will be in glassware, which you can leave on the tables. Do us a favor and be sure to stay inside the fence with your drinks, please. If you need something, our friendly Roadies are just a few steps away.

We also have limited full-service seating on our restaurant patio. To see if there is availability, please visit the host stand.


Immerse yourself in the summer season while you can. The Roadhouse Park surrounds our very own chef’s garden full of fresh herbs, tomatoes, peppers and more, all destined to make its way to the Roadhouse kitchen. Check out our changing seasonal menu for the latest food and drink specials, featuring the freshest and best of what’s available, from local tomato salads to a garden basil Gimlet.

On Thursdays, things really heat up. Don’t miss the Westside Farmers Market (June through September) happening in the Roadhouse parking lot, where you can shop for local produce, baked goods, flowers and more. There’s often live music, too! Make a night of it shopping at the market, dine al fresco on Roadhouse favorites like fried chicken and black bean burgers, and toast a glass or two from our select Park wine list. The Roadhouse Park in Ann Arbor is prime for summer delights. All we need is you!
