The sun is shining, the air is warm and you just want to get outside and enjoy every second of summer weather. Here are some of the outdoor dining options in the Great Western Catskills. We recommend you try them all, so let us know your favorites.
THE ANDES HOTEL
110 Main Street, Andes
While there are a variety of events in the back of The Andes Hotel in the summer months, the most rewarding dining experience is on the front deck of the historic hotel in the heart of Andes, New York. Big tables under a large awning protect guests from the sun while they enjoy the restaurant, brunch, and tavern menus.
8 Winkler Road, Sidney
Umbrellas cover cute picnic tables in front of the main door of the Awestruck tap room and production facility in Sidney, New York. Enjoy the warm air with one of the many Awestruck ciders or beers on tap and enjoy their delicious variety of casual food. We can’t stop raving about the nachos.
746 Main Street, Margaretville
Binnekill Tavern is as lively as it is spacious, and as the weather warms they offer outdoor patio dining right the water’s edge. Enjoy their take on what they call “Mountain Comfort Food” Thursday through Monday with the kitchen open from 5pm to 9pm (the restaurant opens for drinks at 4pm). Brunch is served on Sundays from 11am to 3pm where you might enjoy one of their fantastic Bloody Marys.
THE BULL & GARLAND

The twinkle lights of the beer garden at The Bull & Garland lure you in for a stream side drink. A great place to gather and meet friends, the beer garden is the perfect accompaniment to the interior and porch dining of this delicious British Pub inspired restaurant. From small plates like their Scotch Egg to the traditional beer-battered fish and chips main course, The Bull & Garland has something for everyone and is a super adorable place to enjoy some cocktails or beer in the warmer weather.
