One of my favorite things about summer is eating outside. Living in the Northeast, we know this isn’t possible for more than half the year (unless eating in a snowsuit is your thing). So every year around April/May, I start itching to grab a beer and burger while enjoying the beautiful weather. Lately, the weather has been throwing me some curveballs for outdoor dining with the extreme heat and endless run of thunderstorm. But this past weekend I was finally able to make my first trip of the season to one of my favorite local summer spots…RiverFront Bar & Grill in Albany.
Beer, wings, burgers….what more does an Average Joe need? Located at the north end of the Corning Preserve, RiverFront Bar & Grill offers a peaceful and enjoyable view of the Hudson (which luckily did not smell). On this night they did not have live music, but viewing their calendar at the door, they have quite a lineup for this summer with popular local bands like Audiostars and The Refrigerators, as well as weekly trivia on Wednesday nights.
Great atmosphere, great food and you’re not going to break the bank. What are some of your favorite outdoor dining spots in the Capital Region?
