8 Arizona Restaurants Right On The Water That You’re Guaranteed To Love
Looking for a way to make a meal extra special? One fantastic way to do that is by choosing a restaurant with a waterfront view. Finding a restaurant with this kind of view isn’t very common here in Arizona but the ones we do have are pretty incredible. Check out a few that we found along rivers, creeks, canals, and lakes.
1. Dillon's, Lake Pleasant
This restaurant seems to have a couple of name variations—Dillon’s on the Bayou and Dillon’s KC BBQ—but no matter what you call it, this place serves some tasty food that will relieve your hunger pangs. It’s perfect if you’re just finishing your afternoon boating.
Address: 40202 North 87th Avenue, Peoria
2. Landmark at the Creek, Christopher Creek
If an evening of creekside dining near the base of the Mogollon Rim sounds like the perfect way to finish up an evening, then you’re going to love this restaurant when it opens for the season next spring. They serve breakfast favorites as well as dinner meals that taste homecooked.
Address: 1177 East Christopher Creek Loop, Payson
3. Olive & Ivy Restaurant, Scottsdale
You would think that with the number of canals Arizona has, there would be more dining options along them. Unfortunately, that’s not the case but there is at least one in Scottsdale where you can sit just feet away from the canal while enjoying a delicious brunch. Olive & Ivy serves scrumptious meals that are healthy and fresh.
Address: 7135 East Camelback Road, Scottsdale
4. Pier 54, Tempe
This is one of two restaurants sitting right along the makeshift lake in south Tempe. This spot would be perfect for relaxing with a refreshing drink just after work, where you can get a table right on the pier.
Address: 5394 South Lakeshore Drive, Tempe
5. Pirate’s Den Resort, Parker
Looking for a place to chill while enjoying a day at the Colorado River? This place might do the trick for getting a burger and a cold drink to wind down from the day. Plus, you probably won’t seem too out of character trying to speak in a pirate voice.
Address: 7350 Riverside Drive, Parker
6. Shugrue’s Restaurant and Bar, Lake Havasu
7. The Springs Water Front Dining, Parker
Part of a resort in Parker, this restaurant has some fantastic seating right next to the marina so you can watch boaters come and go while enjoying a plate of seafood or steak. It’s especially pretty as the sun is setting!
Address: 2581 North Highway 95, Parker
8. Up The Creek, Page Springs
Located right in the heart of the Verde Valley, Up The Creek is perfect for getting a lovely view of Oak Creek, a tributary of the Verde River.
Address: 1975 North Page Springs Road, Cornville
