    Outdoor dining options

    We are thrilled there are so many great options for dining outside, but couldn't hit them all.  Tell us what we missed, share your favorites, and help us discover new alfresco dining spots by joining the conversation below.

    Tamo Terrace at the Seaport Hotel is a fabulous outdoor dining spot in the heart of the Seaport District.  Delicious food, waterfront location, live jazz Tuesday nights, an urban oasis!

    Deep Ellum in Allston is the bomb. Great beers and outdoor deck.

    Village Sushi & Grill and Sophia's Grotto in Roslindale, Canary Square in JP....for those of us not in the downtown area, it's nice to spend a lovely afternoon or evening dining al fresco in our own little corners of the city, especially when we commute downtown during the workweek!

    I second that!  Sophia's/Village Sushi/Birch St. Bistro share a gorgeous patio in Roslindale Village.  Just ate there today, and it's our favorite spot on a warm day hands down.

    Love Birch St/Sophia's/Village Sushi...

    Also, Redd's in Rossie just opened up in the old Geoffrey's Cafe spot on Washington St- highly recommend

    Also Ledge in Lower Mills has maybe the best patio in the city!

    Cuffs bar at the back bay hotel.  Massive amounts of space.  Never too packed.  And Baseball Tavern's roof deck.

    Re: Outdoor dining options

    Salvatore's in Lawrence has a great outdoor deck that overlooks the Merrimack River..lot's of fun on summer nights. Thursdays and Fridays usually have live entertainment.
    Most of the downtown Andover restaurants now have outdoor dining options.
    I haven't tried it yet but the newest place Brasserie28 has also applied for an outdoor dining permit. Glory has a nice outdoor dining patio..but they are soon closing to re-open as a more casual Italian eatery..

    The Sea Ketch in Hampton NH probably has the best outdoor dining...the view from their top deck cannot be beat..even the lower decks have a nice view. The food is good and the service top notch.

    For even more casual outdoor "dining" I like the clam shacks on 133, Skips Burgers in Merrimack and sitting on the beach wall at North Hampton enjoying a lobster roll from Beach Plum... Not your average Joe's in Methuen. It seems as though more restaurants are jumping on the out door dining bandwagon..when on the way to the beach last weekend I noticed that even Friendy's had created an out door dining area..lol

    Re: Outdoor dining options

    I had dinner the other night out on the patio at The Links at the Andover Country Club. This was one of the nicest outdoor dining areas that I've been to and the patio reminded me of the patio at the Mount Washington Hotel...( not quite the same view..lol). It's too bad the food was not nearly as good as the view...but it might be a nice place to have a drink with friends.

    I am pretty sure that country club dining is not what this post is really about since not everyone can afford to eat dinner at country clubs.

    John,
    BDC did not put a pricetag on the "outdoor places to eat". Lots of people cannot afford to eat at many of the places mentioned above anyway.
    It is nice to know, there are places to eat for special occasions as well.
    For outdoor eating, I will take the Clambox in Ipswich any time. No one - and I mean no one - makes fried clams the way they do. Artery blocking? Probably. But lots of other things are too. Like your chicken parm f. ex.
    And John, just for your info. It is chicken parmesan or chicken parmegiana.

    The Blue Room in Cambridge. Go to an afternoon movie on the weekend at the Kendall Square Cinema and have an early dinner on the patio. Delicious food and a lovely spot.

    Pingo..thanks..for the record I paid something like twelve dollars for my grilled chicken and asparagus sandwich at the Links. Hardly breaking the bank. I agree that my favorite outdoor dining spots are definitely more casual places like Ipswich Clambox, Woodmans..etc.  When I am at the Clam Box I always go for the lobster roll..they make them great.

     I can recommend the patio at Captain Fishbone's in Quincy. Very good pub food and seafood dishes...sea air, yachts and a pretty boardwalk for strolling.  There are two more restaurants at the other end of the boardwalk so you have plenty of choice. If you're a tourist, it's just a few miles to Quincy Square where you can pick up the tourist trolley and visit the John Adams' house and the Church of the Presidents.

    The Tap in Haverhill has a deck overlooking the Merrimack and fresh made beer.  Food is decent, too.

    I have never had fresh made beer. Is it as good as fresh brewed beer?

    I second all those nominating Sophia's Grotto et al in Roslindale Square. I would add Canary Square in Jamaica Plain. Great place, and a central location (for JP'ers, that is).
