Restaurants with a water view

Whether you're sitting down to a pulled pork sandwich, a plate of fried clams or a big lobster dinner, your food will taste that much better when eaten at an outdoor table -- preferably one within view of sparkling water.

On Long Island, there is no shortage of restaurants that take to the decks and patios for picturesque summer dining. Any of these may have just the table for you.
