Outdoor Seating on Sheboygan's Riverfront



Are you typing “Sheboygan restaurants on the water?” Look no further! Sheboygan’s Riverfront has multiple options for you to choose from.

I heard a saying that goes, a meal is better when it is shared with others. Although I believe that is true, I also think the setting plays a part in that too. I love the restaurants with outdoor seating in Sheboygan. There are a few that I can think of off the top of my head and even an 8th Streatery Open Air Cafe, on Tuesdays in the summer, where they close off a section of 8th street and bring out picnic tables to expand eating areas. I myself enjoy heading down to the riverfront to watch boats come in and out of the harbor, see paddleboarders or kayakers, occasionally a fisherman landing a fish, or a beautiful sunset while dining. Below is a listing of Sheboygan restaurants on the water that have an amazing outdoor atmosphere.
