  • There is no better time to go than on a summer evening when you can sit on the water and enjoy a beer and great burger.
  • One of the best places in the city to enjoy a beer and a burger while watching the sun set. Come here after a nice walk along the Hudson and clear your mind.
  • This one is a bit hidden, but that makes it one of our favorite spots to hang out for a bucket of beers, and an easy burger w/ fries. Enter on 68th and Riverside and walk down the wooded path.
  • Best place to enter is 68th & Riverside then walk down the ramp which drops you right a the entrance to the cafe!
  • Get a pitcher of Blueberry Vodka. Then get another. You're having a great time now.
  • Grab chairs and take them to the little pier - you'll feel like you are your own private deck :)
  • A pitcher of Sangria + good company = a lovely summer evening. Unlike the Boat Basin cafe, they serve fries!
  • Grilled skirt steak with steak sauce, french fries, and a green salad
  • In the summer they have air cond. Bathroom across the bike path. Clean and cool.
  • This place is insanely good. I love their menu, I love their ambiance.
  • Burgers are not half bad
  • Watch the sunset with a pitcher and some friends.
  • This place is often overlooked due to Boat Basin Cafe, which is only a few blocks up, but it's a great place to enjoy a bucket of Coronas with a few friends and enjoy the sunset. Good burgers too!
  • Perfect for those beautiful summer weekends. Park your bike, grab an ice cold and pick a spot near the water.
  • Coffee in the morning is quiet and awesome. Say hi to Pam. She rocks the coffee bar. Trust me.
  • Surprisingly solid burger
  • Not only are the bathrooms the cleanest ever & not stinky, they also have high AC blasting!
  • Corn on the cob is so good!
  • Great place to sit and relax during a mornng bike ride.
  • Sangria is the way to go.
