  • Cool off with the breeze of the Hudson River and take in the stunning view with traditional pub fare and drinks during happy hour on weekdays from 4pm to 7pm.
  • A real hidden gem in the Upper West Side and it gets our vote for the best place to watch the sunset. Right on the Hudson River with sailboats passing by, relax, have a drink, and enjoy the view.
  • Do NOT get the nachos. Seriously. For the love of god, don't get the nachos.
  • Every year, hundreds of triathletes exit out of the water near here during the Nautica NYC Triathlon.
  • It is always ten degrees cooler than the rest of the city.
  • Go for the view, not the food...
  • One of the best places you can go for happy hour in the summer! Not only are the specials good, but you overlook the water.
  • Drink beer, get sunburnt. Repeat.
  • Try the Tarragon Chicken Salad In Phyllo Dough - Mustardy! Mmmm
  • Watch a sunset
  • Bike along the west side greenway (read-carless!) - can go all the way up to GW Bridge! But if not so ambitious, stop along the Boat Basin + reward yourself w/a burger
  • Enjoy the views of the Hudson from the cafe's outdoor area, which overlooks the boat basin.
  • Skip the food, especially the nachos. Stick with drinks.
  • Came with a large group and the server was a DOUCHEBAG!
  • Go here for dinner and view of the sunset. It is wonderful!
  • Order the onion rings, they're crispy, tasty and they hit the spot!!!
  • the best place
  • resting rededge
  • A covered outdoor eatery with wonderful Hudson River views that welcomes dogs. After enjoying a casual meal with your dog, stroll over to the nearby Riverside dog run near the Boat Basin.
  • The beautiful view of the Hudson can lead to a romantic evening however...LOUSY food (Pier 1 Cafe owns). Good place to meet up w/ a group of friends for summertime drinks. -
