The Best Outdoor Dining Restaurants In The US

As the weather warms up and people shed their bulky winter wear, it’s the perfect time to take your food al fresco.

Restaurant review and reservation website OpenTable just released its list of the 100 best outdoor dining restaurants in America, just in time for the summer season.

Unsurprisingly, the sunny states of California and Florida are highly represented on this list, with 38 and 23 restaurants respectively. Hawaii followed with 16 restaurants.

To come up with the list, OpenTable looked at the combined opinions of more than 5 million verified OpenTable user views for approximately 19,000 restaurants all over the U.S.
