    You order at the counter, then find a seat and get your food whenever your buzzer buzzes. The system is blessedly uncomplicated, which means everyone can just chill the hell out and focus on the view. Read more

    The setting here is spectacular, with panoramic views of the Hudson River, prime sunset views, and bike rentals nearby. The food is better than you’d expect, and won’t cost you an arm and a leg. Read more

    This one is a bit hidden, but that makes it one of our favorite spots to hang out for a bucket of beers, and an easy burger w/ fries. Enter on 68th and Riverside and walk down the wooded path.

    Really great outdoor bar and food by the water. Excellent service and lots of options in the sun or shade. Take a walk on the waterfront when you are done sipping your cocktails.

    Cute spot along the Hudson on the UWS. Sitting outside under the umbrellas on a sunny day, taking in the amazing waterfront views while sipping on tasty frozen cocktail, cold beer, or glass of wine

    This place is often overlooked due to Boat Basin Cafe, which is only a few blocks up, but it's a great place to enjoy a bucket of Coronas with a few friends and enjoy the sunset. Good burgers too!

    Great setting for a drink and/or snack at sunset. Food is better than expected, though everything is on the pricey side, but fantastic setting in NYC!

    Perfect spot on summer evenings with a killer view - white sangria, old bay fries, and the chicken pimento were big hits at our table. Dog and kid friendly, too!

    It makes a great bike destination, and the lobster roll, blackened salmon, and shrimp brochettes are better than they need to be, and cheaper, too. Read more

    GORGEOUS views and beautiful ambiance. The food is a little overpriced but I guess you're paying for the location! Super dog friendly.

    One of the best places in the city to enjoy a beer and a burger while watching the sun set. Come here after a nice walk along the Hudson and clear your mind.

    Burger, hot dog, Old Bay fries, Chicken Caesar salad... All good choices. Avoid the beet & goat cheese salad. Get a pitcher of sangria or you're doing it wrong.

    Blueberry lemonade is so refreshing! The fact that there's a designated line to order can apparently be confusing for some cyclists...

    The lobster roll, although $20, includes a small salad and high-end fries. Try it once and share with a friend.
