Sunset views at Baylander Steel Beach in Harlem.

Uptown's waterfront dining options keep multiplying. And with loads of outdoor seating, they're more attractive than ever.

To help you find them all, here's a list of spots where you can grab a drink, a bite and some river views in Harlem and beyond.

From south to north:

Baylander Steel Beach

Manhattanville West Harlem Piers, W 125th Street at the Hudson River

This floating bar and restaurant is located on an actual decommissioned U.S. Navy ship moored at the West Harlem Piers. Look for casual pub grub like wings, burgers and sunset-ready cocktails including frosés and Palomas.

Sofrito on the Hudson

Hamilton Heights 679 Riverside Drive (inside Riverbank State Park, entrance at W 145th St)

Enter Harlem's Riverbank State Park to find this festive Latin restaurant—think garlicky mofongo and sangria—with outdoor seating facing the GW Bridge as well as a concession stand directly next to the park's shaded picnic area.

The Hudson

Inwood 348 Dyckman St at the Hudson River

Occupying the old La Marina space in Inwood, this ideally-located waterfront restaurant offers boiled seafood, sandwiches including lobster rolls, and barbecue. Oh, there's sushi, too.
