We look forward to your visit. We request business casual attire when dining at Peninsula Grill. Dining at the bar is more relaxed as is the courtyard. Cheers, Ryan

I didn't see any when we were there in November but it was also nearly 80 degrees during the day then. I would expect they either do have heaters or they don't open the patio if its too chilly.
