Dinner time in Austin and having dinner outdoors in the first half of April

Hi everyone,

We're going to Austin and San Antonio for Easter this year. I was wondering what the typical dinner time is and whether you think it would be already warm enough to dine outdoors in restaurants' terraces in the first half of April.

Dinner is whenever it is served by the restaurant. Most offer a dinner menu starting at 5:00. If they offer outdoor seating, I'm sure they'll have heaters if it's cold outside.

Dinner time runs the gamut, from as early as 5pm to 8 or 9pm. There is no better or worse, or preferred time..... Pick a time that suits you the best -

It is 82 degrees today in Austin - March 7th. It will definitely be warm enough to dine outdoors in April. As with anywhere, just be sure to dress appropriate for your own comfort.

The average daily high in April is 77 F so you should be able to dine outside al fresco. In my experience the most common time to eat dinner at a restaurant is 7:00-8:00 pm.

It looks like the weather next week is going to be horrible. Wet and much colder than the averages for this time of the year. Eating dinner alfresco won’t be a pleasant experience it seems!

The best place that I remember eating al fresco in Texas was on the Riverwalk in San Antonio. Any scraps that fall off your table get eaten by ducks.

A friend of mine who has been working (temp) for the USFS in Austin, let me know that the temperature Monday in Austin reached 90 degrees. Today she is flying back to her home in Ketchican AK where the temp is about 40.
