Best Outdoor Dining in Philly 

friends with wine outdoors

With so many restaurants near your Edgewater apartment, it’s hard to pick just one! If you’re planning a date night, a visit with the family or a night out with old friends and are trying to narrow down your culinary choices, consider your outdoor-dining options.

Summer in Philly means Center City is bustling with visitors, shoppers, businesspeople and everyone in between. You can be right in the middle of all of that action by dining al fresco. Why stay cooped up inside on a warm night when you can grab your plate, head to the sidewalk and take in the many sights and sounds of summer in the city!

Here are a few of the best outdoor-dining spots in the neighborhood:


SkyGarten: Enjoy brews with a view at SkyGarten, four blocks from your Edgewater apartment. On the 51st floor of this seasonal German beer garden, visitors can take in amazing panoramic vantage points of the whole city while socializing and sipping on a range of genuine German drinks. The food menu includes authentic items like the Bavarian pretzel as well as American favorites such as cheesesteaks and wings.


Devon & Blakely: Five blocks from your Edgewater apartment, Devon & Blakely is a perfect spot for a casual, outdoor lunch. The upscale market features soups, salads and sandwiches, as well as snacks and coffee. The outdoor seating gives diners lots to look at along the bustling Market Street, so whether you’re looking for a new spot for your next work meeting or want a new backdrop for your lunch hour, consider Devon & Blakely.


Shake Shack: What’s better than a milkshake on a warm summer night? How about a shake with a view? Five blocks from your Edgewater apartment, Shake Shack features a wide range of frozen desserts, along with burgers, hot dogs and much more. Diners can enjoy their dishes at casual outdoor seating along Sansom Street, a hub for after-work diners, shoppers and partiers.
