Patio Dining

Pub 500’s patios are a great place to grab lunch, an ice-cold brew at Happy Hour or watch the nightlife of City Center Mankato. Perfect on warm days or cool nights, you can come and sit back around the fire pit with friends and family. And if you get hungry, our menu offers classic hearty fare that is sure to please everyone. Our south side patio is smoke-free until 9 p.m.
