are there any restaurants in Westchester where they have a grill and you can sit outside and have burgers, hot dogs, ribs, chicken, etc....?

      I thought they had an outside area at The Candlelight Inn in Scarsdale, but not sure if they do outdoor grill. Call and check. The Candlelight is worth a trip no matter!

        Mulligan's at Doral Arrowwood. It's on the golf course-- large grill, large bar, seating under a large awning. Open Memorial Day through Labor Day. Haven't been yet this year but I always look forward to it.

        Here's the link to the menu:

          Wow, read this yesterday and it actually stuck with me, because I couldn't for the life of me think of a place where they actually grill outside and then it hit me. Arrowwood. I was a little late.

          Last summer, Stew Leonards in Yonkers grilled and had outdoor tables. You could get burgers, hot dogs, corn, fried shrimp (not grilled), and eat outside under an umbrella. Yes, there are lots of families with noisy kids, but for a casual and inexpensive day, it was a lot of fun, and I'm assuming that they will be doing this again this summer. I hope so.

            Sunset Cove does this in Tarrytown. It gets really packed on Friday nights, but during the week it can be realy relaxing. I think they usually have music at some point during the week, too.

              powell's in harrison. very good local spot with surprisingly good seafood, burgers and dogs.
              owner is very friendly and cares about his customers.

              not fancy, but good

                Very good call with Powell's. Inexpensive pub grub and some seafood and delightful staff and ownership. I must admit, I have never eaten there (delivered something there), but the sounds coming from the inside were pretty positive. Not sure how long people tend to stay outside and doubt they have a liquor license, but not sure.

                Sunset Cove is nice, but food is, eh

                  Powell's is very good for burgers, sandwiches, fries and other basics including decent salads. Also -- steamers! Real deal, ipswich/soft shells. Almost always steamed exactly right. No bells and whistles such as aromatics in the steaming liquid but nice sizes and fills my almost constant craving for them. I get them to go quite often and even though the somewhat busy and not at all quaint Halstead Avenue, it's pleasant enough to "eat in" on their outside deck. Haven't seen an outdoor grill going though. Did I miss something?

                    You are probably right. I don't think they have any grilling going on outside. Doubt it. Good to know about the steamers. I'm craving. Honestly, haven't had them in years.

              Not sure if they still do it, but Lexington Square Cafe in Mt. Kisco had one last summer.
