One of the best things about living or traveling to Florida is the large number of restaurants that can dine al fresco. In Jacksonville, most restaurants have at least a few tables for diners who want to enjoy a meal in the warm sun – and some even have entire rooms devoted to alfresco dining. But the 13 restaurants offer enviable dining on the terrace as well as first-class dishes, making them a focal point for the next outdoor dining adventure.
Editor’s note: Most Florida restaurants have resumed indoor and outdoor dining. However, this should not be taken as confirmation of the on-site dining experience as safety concerns remain: For the most current information on coronavirus cases in your area, please visit the Florida Health Department website. Studies show that there is less risk of exposure outdoors, but the risk associated with terrace dining depends on restaurants that follow strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.
