Any good restaurants on the water or sound?

Now the nice weather has finally arrived I am looking for some nice restaurants that are local and are on the Hudson River or LI Sound...Don't mind driving into CT either! It seems to have slipped my mind about where to go..Thanks!!

  1. Red Hat in Irvington has outdoor dining on the Hudson as well as on the rooftop.

      Had drinks on the roof at Red Hat last week and the sunset was fabulous. Food is good, but can be pricey depending on what you order. Whenever we feel that we want nice, upscale ambience and great water views, it is the go to place.

      We used to go to Harvest on the Hudson for this but have heard that the food quality has gone down in the past few years.

      For very casual waterfront dining (picnic tables and fish shack vibe), Ebb Tide in Port Chester on the Byram River is terriffic.

    2. The nice view in Rye is at Seaside Johnny's but the food is awful. I prefer to enjoy the outdoors in the nice weather at Mulligans at Doral Arrowwood in Rye Brook. It's not a water view but it feels like an island get-away on Thurs and Fri nights when the calypso band plays. It's on the golf course. Here's this year's menu:

        I did not think the food at Seaside Johnny's was awful except that it was awfully expensive for what you get.

      2. Also Harvest on Hudson- although we prefer Red Hat. No reservations for patio seating, so during the week you might get a 10 minute wait. Definitely hit the bar on the roof for a drink, and Wednesday we were there they had great live Jazz.
