Dine outdoors at these nine excellent restaurants

Whether you’re dining with family, having drinks with friends, or out on a date, there’s always the first big decision before you decide what meal you’ll be digging into: indoor or patio? We’re here to help make this decision easier! These nine restaurants with alfresco dining options will make the answer to that question simple: patio, please! 

The View at Morgan Hill

Located at the top of Morgan Hill in Easton, Pennsylvania, The View is the perfect place to go for homemade meals with cinematic views. The restaurant itself replicates an upscale suburban home, so you’ll feel like you’re heading over to Nana’s for Sunday dinner. Looking out onto those luscious fields and blue skies is your appetizer (on the house, of course). On top of that, this restaurant is accessible from all parts of Pennsylvania, even for New York and New Jersey locals. They also have killer lunch options, like their tacos and signature wings. 

Molinari’s

If you’re craving affordable and authentic Italian cuisine, Molinari’s is the place to go! Located on Third Street, this little restaurant brings Italy to Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. You won’t regret choosing to eat out on the patio! Their menu changes with the seasons, so you’re always guaranteed the freshest ingredients cooked into your meal. 

McCarthy’s Red Stag Pub

When sitting out front, the exterior of McCarthy’s Red Stag Pub will give you 1950s train station vibes. Crack open a cold one with some friends while exploring Main Street in Easton, PA. If you happen to be here Monday-Friday from 4-6PM, you can get happy hour specials, like $5 Irish Imperial pints and half-off appetizers. All aboard the McCarthy train! 

3rd & Ferry Fish Market

Dining out at the 3rd & Ferry Fish Market means getting that crisp ocean breeze and fresh seafood. With lobster rolls and New England clam chowder, you know you’re going to have satisfied taste buds and a satisfied stomach, but make sure to save some room for the raw bar! 

The Fish Market has daily $5 deals every Tuesday-Friday from 5-6PM. 

The Bayou

Get a taste of the South at The Bayou, located on Hawthorne Road in Easton, PA. Soul food brought to the Northeast, you will have to resist ordering everything off the menu. The patio seating area is perfect for getting some sunshine and breeze with your comfort food, but no matter what you order, the Bayou Mac and Cheese is a must-have. 

Copperhead Grille

Open until midnight Monday-Saturday, Copperhead Grille is the perfect late-night spot to hit up with friends after a night out on the town. Pub food and beer—how can it get any better? Come to the Grille Friday from 6-9PM for some live music! The heated outdoor seating area is the perfect spot to end your night. 

Mesa Modern Mexican

Mesa Modern Mexican is the place to be to satisfy your Tex-Mex cravings. Alfresco dining with tacos and a side of guacamole (they have four types of guac to choose from) is absolutely the way to go, and Mexican cuisine wouldn’t be right without some drinks! Happy hour is Monday-Friday from 5-7PM., Saturday 10AM-12AM, and Sunday from 3-5PM, where you can get $5 margaritas or $20 pitchers! 

Queen City BBQ

For the best family-friendly restaurant with alfresco dining, check out Queen City BBQ. You’ll come for the outdoor public-facing seating, but stay for the amazing comfort food. The Ridiculous Brisket Sandwich is so perfectly named you might just have to order another one.
