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.

Anthony’s HomePort and Beach Cafe

Bring out-of-towners to this showstopper of a waterfront eatery in Edmonds and you won’t be disappointed—the views of Puget Sound are divine. But when the upscale Anthony’s is a little too much for a casual family lunch or dinner out, head downstairs to Anthony’s Beach Café for bowls of chowder, fish tacos and crispy calamari. The outdoor patio overlooks a sandy play space perfect for little ones to enjoy while their parents appreciate the sights.
