When you need high-quality, durable, and stylish commercial umbrellas for your restaurants, look no further than American Holtzkraft.

At American Holtzkraft, we have merged imagination and high-quality materials with renowned Pennsylvania Dutch craftsmanship to produce the finest quality market umbrellas in the industry. Built to last, our umbrellas are constructed with Northern Ash, the hardest wood grown in the United States. And, with canopies of attractive durable fabrics, multi-laminated hubs and finials, and solid brass hardware, our umbrellas radiate quality.

Commercial Umbrellas for RestaurantsWe are extremely proud of the numerous awards and honors we have earned through the years, such as the Awards for Design Excellence (ADEX) for superior product design and quality. ADEX is the largest and most prestigious awards program for product and project design in the Architecture and Design industry.


One major difference between American Holtzkraft and our competitors is that we can conceptualize and custom design the unique pieces you need for your space. Instead of buying standard designs, you will work with our expert designers and the finest materials to create the exact umbrellas and site furnishings you have in mind.

We can add valances, trims, or split panels to create themed pieces for your unique location. We can also screen print your logo directly onto your umbrellas, making your restaurant easily recognizable and helping you attract new customers while keeping your guests shaded and comfortable.

Choosing the Proper Umbrella Size

The oval and long tables in your restaurant or café will be best served by rectangular umbrella canopies. A square or octagonal umbrella that shades the entire length of a long, rectangular table might overwhelm the space. In an outdoor environment, plan to add a 2-foot shade buffer around each table to keep your customers comfortable. For example:

  • 6 to 6.5 ft. – Best suited to tables up to 30 inches wide, such as small café tables.
  • 7 to 8 ft. – Best suited for tables up to 48 inches wide, such as 4-person dining tables or for shading a single chaise lounge at the pool.
  • 9 ft. – Best suited for tables up to 54 inches wide, such as 4 to 6-person dining tables.
  • 10 ft. – Best suited for tables up to 62 inches wide, such as 6-person dining tables or a pair of chaise lounges.
  • 11 ft. – Best suited for tables up to 84 inches wide, such as 8 to 14-person dining tables.

Our popular 7-foot octagonal umbrella (Model #701.5) is popular for cafés and restaurants. We recommend it for tables up to 48 inches wide, such as 4-person dining tables. This umbrella features 8 reinforced ribs and vent for extra wind resistance and stainless steel hardware trim for marine applications.

Model #719, an 8×10-foot rectangular market umbrella with 8 ribs and 2-inch pole diameters, is the perfect umbrella for shading a pair of small round or square tables or patio tables that are 60″ to 100″ long and seat 8-10 people.
