After months of rainy, cloudy weather, Seattle families are taking every chance they can get to soak up the rays. And what better way to celebrate a beautiful sunny day or sunset than with family… and food? To make the most of mealtime outdoors, we’ve compiled a list of restaurants that serve delish dishes with a view to match. Click through the gallery to see our favorites.

Red Mill Burgers

Seattle icon Red Mill Burgers has been featured on Oprah and the Food Network. But to Seattle locals, it’s just a great place to grab a delicious burger and some onion rings with the family. Red Mill is known for cooking up a huge stack of bacon for topping burgers, hand-blending fresh milkshakes (try banana or peanut butter) and offering wonderful outdoor picnic tables for eating in the sun. Be warned – Red Mill only takes cash or check and has a strict no cell phone policy!
