    Perfect spot for a drink-break while biking along the Hudson River Park. P.S. Order food only if you are starving!

    One of the best places you can go for happy hour in the summer! Not only are the specials good, but you overlook the water.

    H2S's Ellen Harvey suggests eating at the West 79th Street Boat Basin Cafe. Not only can you watch the sunset as you dine, but you can bring your dog as well!

    The perfect pit stop during a bike ride on the west side greenway. Stash your bike inside (no need to lock up) and grab a well-deserved burger.

    The views and setting are the coolest part. The pina colada was pretty good too.

    Nice view, make sure you sit outside not in the busy hall. Margaritas were juice... 3x pitchers in and unsure of any booze in them

    Great spot to hang, relax and drink. I would not recommend any drink that requires more than 1 mixer or any food item other than burgers, dogs and fries.

    Great spot on the river, don't wait in line to sit in the middle circle (its a heating pot during the day) - wait to sit along the water. Plus, nothing is fried there!

    Date #9, Kate: gets a little bro-y, but it's a refreshing place to grab a beer and some cheap beer. Tip: sit on the patio to take in the views of the Hudson River. Read more

    My favorite place for casual dinner or big groups especially at sunset. Order a bucket of Caronas and the bomb mahi mahi tacos!

    Nice and toasty heaters in doors when the weather is nippy. And if you get a good table, you'll still have a nice view of the river.

    Enjoy the views of the Hudson from the cafe's outdoor area, which overlooks the boat basin.

    Blue point mosaic beer is a good IPA. The cheaper boat house beer was nice but a bit weak and watery for my taste.

    Don't come here for the food. Come here for the view. But if you must eat, get the Spicy Turkey Burger.

    Cool off with the breeze of the Hudson River – and take in the stunning view – with traditional pub fare and drinks during happy hour on weekdays from 4pm to 7pm.

    The burgers come with chips instead of fries. Unconscionable. It's a scene, but I prefer Pier 70 ten blocks south.

    There are better bars on the water, but the $8 margs are potent and the sunset is beautiful

    You can only sit in the outdoor areas if everyone orders food, but even from inside, great place for afternoon beers and views of the Hudson!

    Is it summer yet? Boat Basin is the cherry on top of summer Fridays. Try the Huckleberry Lemonade, perfection in a solo cup.

    Admire the use of space under an overpass, but not that everything is served in disposable plastic packaging. There's no excuse for such a disgusting amount of waste at a sit down venue. Boycotting.
