10 Outdoor Restaurants In New Jersey You’ll Want To Visit Before Summer’s End

While some of us prefer takeout, many Garden Staters are seeking outdoor dining options this summer. There are quite a few restaurants to choose from and today, we’re featuring a few favorites. They range from casual to upscale and feature a variety of cuisines. You’ll find them below, in no particular order.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

There’s one more restaurant we’d like to add. For those in Sussex County and those willing to travel to Sussex County, there’s a magical restaurant in the mountains whose outdoor dining is an absolute dream. Check out the Walpack Inn. While this list highlights a handful of delightful outdoor dining options in New Jersey (many with waterfront views), there are dozens of others that are worth a visit. Share your favorites with us in the comments or nominate them here.
