The menu at your restaurant is the first thing that customers will preview before they even make a decision of finding a table for themselves. It is crucial to have a menu that outlines your available items and displays the style of your restaurant. In America alone, there are more than 700,000+ restaurants. Although many fall under the category of “restaurant chains” and have similar menus, many have their own brand identity and, therefore, their own menus. In all fairness, there is a lot of work available for designers who wish to create restaurant menus. Many have chosen to use their skills by sharing free downloadable vector graphics of pre-built restaurant menus. These restaurant menu PSD templates produce different designs without losing the identity of your restaurant.
A lot of thought has to go into creating a menu. For example, do we wish to use visual displays of food or stick to minimal designs? Food visuals are usually costly since you’d want the quality of the photos to be stellar. Prestigious and elegant restaurants, though, can decide to not use images because their reputation already speaks for themselves. Then, there is the fast food restaurant type, where both menu types work equally well. The menu vectors we have up for grabs here today will be of all types, and we will try to cover the majority of restaurant categories, providing universal menu choices.

What are outdoor restaurants? Usually, this label applies to a restaurant located in the nature with an open kitchen, a fast food truck, or a restaurant on top of the river, offering see delicacies. Just because the name implies a certain category doesn’t actually mean that you can only use the menu for that one purpose. The Outdoor Restaurant Menu is a very solid choice if you are looking to create a menu with a lot of visual content. Nearly all food items that are listed in this menu have an image by their side, which can be helpful for customers to help decide what they really want. Just don’t forget to use high-quality pictures that will help to sell the food items.
The word play in this menu can be huge. Vegetables Menu might make you think that it only suits vegetarian restaurants, but seriously, it’s only a name. Vegetables menu is going to work well in all types of situations. The menu is organized very neatly and lets you use pictures, too. Moreover, the bottom allows you to display a recommended dish or two. Sometimes, customers need a little encouragement about the best items on the menu.
Here’s a menu that will make more sense about what we are trying to say. Vintage Menu isn’t going to be about vintage food, it’s all about a vintage feel of the menu itself. Vintage menus are great because they work in various settings, and can be pulled off in nearly any restaurant situation imaginable. This one in particular has a couple of menu slot items that would allow to display a food picture, but the rest of the menu depends on the name of the dish, and a little description for it. So, with that in mind, the Vintage Menu would work extremely well for restaurants that have established trust, or are providing food or excellent quality, where customers wouldn’t need to spend ten minutes examining a food picture to make their decision.
Ahh..Pizza! The healthy man’s weakness. We will be displaying a few pizza menus for you today, so let’s warm up with the Pizza Menu Template. As we all know, all pizzas look exactly the same, with a few exceptions here and there, but the main fact remains that most pizza menus don’t really display any visual contents of the way the pizza is going to look. All the free space is allocated to describe the pizza ingredients, and put more offers on the table. This menu lets you divide the available items in different categories. For example — pizza’s with different meat, style or type. And so forth. This menu might even inspire you to reorganize your pizza menu altogether. The front of the menu could be worked on a little, but we assume that you will be using your brand logo anyway, so it shouldn’t be a problem.
The first thing we notice about this template is the wonderful front-page of the menu. It perfectly executes on the idea of a menu that’s all about ‘ice cold’ items; ice cream, cold drinks, cakes, and more. The actual food item lists are great too, each item can be supported with a picture of what the product looks like, giving customers more chances to decide on what they really desire on that hot and steamy summer day. One of the layers offers an extensive full-width visual display of a particular item you’re selling, perhaps giving you the space to advertise the premium products on your menu. All in all, a wonderful execution of a menu for cold items.
Basic menu is hot! We absolutely love this one. A traditional restaurant menu with the ability to list items with their appropriate descriptions, but also space for displaying special dishes in the form of full-width boxed visuals. With this technique, you can also give the customers a preview of what other dishes are going to look like, encouraging them once again to look for the kind of food that they really want. Front and back of the menu have a lot of layered space for doing self-promotion, and other special offers that your customers would love to explore or learn more about.
TemplateShock has some really great stuff available for free download. Just to inform you, in order to download these templates, you have to visit the template Download page, and then look at the very footer of the screen of the web page that you have opened, there you will notice a widget that offers a variety of download choices — you will want to select the 2nd one “this item” in order to download the item you’re viewing. As for the template, this is Ice Cream Shop Menu — a nicely organized menu for ice cream shops, trucks, and stores. Pleasant on the eye, and has enough room to list all of the world’s most favorite ice creams.
India has some of the nicest food in the world, even if some would like to argue against the hygiene of the food environment in this wonderful country. Having had the experiences to eat at numerous Indian eateries, it’s a pleasure to see a menu that actually follows the traditional style of Indian menus. Simple, and straight to the point. The menu here has a little bit of added texture and enough space for a logo, but serves as a single-page menu that only enlists the name of the dish that is available on the offers. It’s safe to say that people in India actually know what they want each time, and so the menu serves as a great reference point for the price of each dish, or extras that could be available.
Japanese restaurants have risen in popularity not just in Japan alone, but all over the world. As more of the Japanese people begin to travel the world, the higher is the demand for authentic Japanese food. By the looks of it, the Japanese culture enjoys simplicity, and this menu portrays that simplicity very well. A simple, yet with an elegant front-page cover, restaurant menu that can be categorized by meal types, but only displays the name of the dish that’s up for grabs. Of course, this could imply that this particular menu is great for restaurants that you can find in local Japanese communities only, because in the western world, people who are alien to Japanese food might wish to see some visual pictures alongside the food offers as well.
One thing we will see repeating itself throughout the list is going to be ‘hand drawn’ menu templates. The ‘hand drawn’ here implies that the pre-digitized version of the visual content on the menu has been written with a hand by a human being, then transferred into digital format and finally colored appropriately. You can easily trace this back to the actual design of the visual content on these menus, it is very clearly hand crafted, and compliments many different restaurant types. First of which is a menu for burger related items. Actual burgers, fries, and drinks to choose from.
A menu that’s going to be perfect for individual restaurants that offer burgers on their menu, and food trucks that sell burgers on the side of the road. When people come visit a burger restaurant, they aren’t expecting to look at juicy pictures for hours, they want to know the offers and the price — and this menu executes on that idea.
A lot of the menu templates we will see here are going to be related to fast foods, and generally types of restaurants that deal with selling food outside of restaurant facilities, though not to say that this menu wouldn’t work great in an indoor restaurant, quite the opposite — the Burger & Grill menu has been designed in such a way that it would work great individually, as an accompanying menu to an already existing menu, and also as a menu for stores that sell food in the middle of nowhere, such as festivals, gas stations and other amenities. The visual work on this menu is of premium quality. Depending on how many items you have on your list, you can make this menu as small or as big as you prefer.
Anyone who has been to a bakery before will know that bakeries usually have all of their available items on display, and are complemented with the appropriate prices of reach item. But, in the last few decades, bakeries have also become popular for serving breakfast and cold/hot drinks, which means that a menu had to be established to better advertise the available produce. Here’s a simple menu for a bakery that wishes to show items on display, but also show other available options with a menu. Perhaps this will inspire you to extend your available items at your bakery. More things to choose from can often lead to more customers to serve.
A grill can cook a lot of things, particular meat products. With a grill we can fook seafood, burgers, meat related dishes, hot dogs, and other specific items. If grilling is your specialty, you will need to equip yourself with a menu that can help you advertise the things you know how to cook really well, and we feel that we have found a good choice for you to explore. A grill menu that’s displayed in blackboard style. A traditional approach to advertising a menu, transferred into digital format and back onto a piece of carton. How wonderful!
The author says that this menu is simple, we say that it is elegant, or both actually! If simple is your game, then grab a copy of this template, stock it up with your restaurant menu items and print that baby out. There’s no room for pictures, so only dish names and descriptions are allowed. If this is what you prefer, then you have found a good choice of a template to choose.
With more than 25,000+ downloads, one has to wonder; how long before I run into this menu myself. We would actually love to hear the feedback of our readers, as to whether you guys have ever run into this menu at a restaurant you have visited. What would be the odds of that. Anyhow, Colorful Menu is exactly that, a colorful menu choice for a restaurant that embraces vibrant colors. We can see this one being presented at places like sports clubs, the airport, or kids playgrounds where you want to send out a more relaxed vibe. We love the little header images that describe each of the food sections and what items they have on the list.
25k+ downloads certainly sounded like a lot, but some templates easily outrank that, such as Restaurant Menu Template on Blackboard. This stunning menu template has over 69,000 downloads as it boasts one of the most common and most recognizable menu template designs that can be found across local restaurants all over the globe. A blackboard style menu that has no room for pictures, but plenty of room for menu items. Fairly popular in countries like United Kingdom and Ireland, but surely in the United States as well. Restaurant owners that continue to serve the same customers over the years will greatly benefit from this menu. It’s simple, but people love it.
Ready to add some elegance to your restaurant? Don’t think twice, this Elegant menu has everything you need to make the dinner experience for your customers unforgettable. Again, the emphasis on the food items, without the bloatedness of visual displays.
77,000+ downloads can’t be wrong, this menu is seriously cool! Grill restaurants are some of our own personal favorites, so many great varieties of food and all cooked underneath live fire in front of you; how amazing. This grill bar/restaurant menu has been crafted to support a retro design style. Your menu suddenly looks both cool, and old-school. The demo allocation of the menu items falls under four categories: burgers, hot dogs, fries, and drinks. Each category has a picture attached to it. But since you get the full vector to edit, you can just adjust the menu to your own liking, needless to say — your own menu item availability. A wonderful template to get started with though.
A delicious Chef menu for delicious menu items. Simple orange and brown combination for displaying various food item categories. A minimalistic approach to be fair.
Ribbons are a nice design feature, so if you like ribbons, you will like this template. We also find the grid-style layout to be quite unique and actually very easy on the eye, allowing to quickly skim through available menu options. This template provides menu options for food choices and categories, so will wonderfully suit restaurants that have a lot to offer.
Fast food places, we have a surprise for you! A truly unique, creative, and colorfully stunning all at the same time, a hand drawn template of a menu for fast food chains, restaurants, trucks, and stops. The front of the menu is accompanied by a beautiful hand-drawn image of a juicy burger that is going to further increase the appetite of anyone who is looking at the menu, and the actual inside of the menu is built in a similar way — the top of the menu has a little ribbon to make the menu more appealing to the eye, and the food is divided into three parts — hamburgers, sandwiches, and drinks.
You can edit these as you like, but remember that you will lose out on those hand drawn images that come with each of the categories, though you should be able to mimic those for a fraction of the price in the freelance market. Nearly 8k+ downloads, going up quickly.
Here’s a lightweight version of an elegant restaurant menu. Very simple with the choice of colors, and the number of categories and food items that you can list. Great for restaurants that focus on summer foods, or foods with light texture to them.
That last fast food menu we looked at was quite good, the burger looked juicy and appealing, but we want to take it to the next level. And to do that, we have to list one last one hand drawn menu for fast food restaurants, and the menu is drawn on a blackboard! What we really liked about this particular one, the inside of the menu has six varieties of categories, all of which are presented with their own unique picture: burgers, hot dogs, grill, chicken, fries and tacos. This will immensely help customers in making a decision quickly for what they want to order. It’s possible that you could take these layered food category pictures, and apply them to that last burger menu we explored. The themes are very similar, and could eventually save you a ton of work.
Designers put their souls and hearts into these designs, one of the major reasons is because they wish to give back, but it goes without saying that they also do it because it means free exposure to their design agencies and design work. Here is one such design that executes on both ideas. A modern restaurant menu template available for PSD download. This one will work for restaurants of the following type: outdoor/indoor eateries, fast food restaurants, cafeterias, school menus, and pretty much any other restaurant that deals with serving food. The style is refreshing and welcoming to the customer.

What’s more, the menu’s PSD files are all layered, allowing you to change even the most tiny of details within the menu to better reflect your restaurant style.

A stylish menu template (possibly can be used as a flyer template for a restaurant) from Shahul Hameed in India. Lovely arrangement of menu items, divided into two sections of food and drinks. The footer of the menu can be used to outline preview photos of the type of food that you are serving. It just so happens that photos can really help customers in making a decision for what they wish to order.
Easter is here, and we couldn’t avoid giving back to our readers at least one menu template that’s related to Easter. This one in particular is a Brunch template. Brunch is what’s known as Breakfast and Lunch together, nobody wants just eggs for their Easter breakfast, so it’s best to combine the day together with lunch! The menu is cute-looking, with creative design appeal and a ton of space to list available Brunch items.

Premium Restaurant Menu Templates
Restaurant templates are some of the most downloaded free PSD files on graphic design websites, we couldn’t ignore the high demand and popularity, and decided it was our time to find and curate the best works of art in this category. Looking back at what we were able to put together, we feel there are a lot of great choices to choose from, for both fast food restaurants, and restaurants of elegant quality. But, we want to take it a step further. We want to ensure that your restaurant, and its menu, gets the best treatment possible. We want to talk more about a couple of menu template choices from a premium marketplace.
The following menus have been crafted by experienced graphic designers who do graphic design work for a living, their work is of stellar quality, because all of them are competing for new customers.

We only have six more choices to show you, but maybe these are the ones that will tie up the research for you.
Minimal Food Menu
A minimal menu with somewhat technical feel to it. Dark text on a white background, with glamorous texture. Restaurants with white seats are going to find this menu a huge hit.

The design is light, layered and uses a boxed grid to display items. A lot of space to show real food pictures, which always adds to the menu experience.
Seafood Menu Restaurant
Seafood really wasn’t a big theme throughout this roundup, so we thought it would be good to include at least one seafood restaurant menu for our community members. Are you a seafood restaurant owner? Perhaps you’re running a seafood eatery next to the shore..whatever the case, with this menu you will have plenty of ways to display the kind of seafood items that you have got up for sale. We guarantee you that your customers will appreciate the extra effort you’ve put into your menu, because not everyone does.
Bar Menu Template
Bars need menus too, oh yes.. they do! One of the most annoying things that people working behind the bar talk about is when a customer walks up to the counter and asks them to make a good drink for them.. seriously, the bartender doesn’t have enough time to serve everyone in timely manner, to think that they would have the time to come up with a drink for you is even more ludicrous. So, bar owners, expand your horizons with a menu. Give your customers a chance to choose from cocktails, individual drinks, and specials.
Mexican Food Flyer Menu
In conclusion to this post, we have a food menu flyer for our mexican restaurant owners, particularly those who love to cook and sell tacos. A pleasant on the eye menu specifically crafted for mexican style food. What a treat!
Restaurant Menu PSD Templates
We could have expanded this post to feature hundreds of menus, but is it really necessary? At Colorlib, we focus on individual authenticity of an item, so the items we list tend to be unique in their own way, but also cover a range of different scenarios (restaurant types), so the number 35 felt more than appropriate. Now that we have concluded this as well, would you be so kind with your time to let us know whether you find a menu template that you plan to use for your restaurant? We are eager to hear your feedback because it is going to help us shape the future of this post, in the form of potential updates where we will add more template styles that better reflect the needs of our readers.
