Food with a View: Waterfront Dining

Sunrise, sunset or anytime in between, these waterfront eateries offer a feast for the eyes as well as the taste buds.


Carlucci’s Waterfront

Mount Laurel

View: From the split-level stone terrace, you can practically dangle your toes in Rancocas Creek, whether you’re reclining in a wicker easy chair by the bar or dining under tents. Two dining rooms provide the same view through big picture windows and sliding glass doors. Food: Italian, plus steak and seafood. Drink: Martinis, frozen cocktails, wines mainly from Italy and California. 876 Centerton Road; 856-235-5737—Tara Nurin

The Chop House
You can see placid Silver Lake from the dining room, but the best vista is through the huge windows of the enclosed deck. Sunsets are lovely. Food: Steak and seafood, including a raw bar. Drink: Martinis, 22 beers, including some locals on tap, 18 wines by the glass, 10-page bottle list. 4 Lakeview Drive South, 856-566-7300—TN

Robin’s Nest
Mt. Holly
Multiple terraces jut from the historic (some say haunted) mansion and cantilever 3 to 20 feet over Rancocas Creek. Dine under colorful umbrellas while you peruse a branch of the creek, colonial-era shops on Washington Street and the Washington Street bridge. Food: French-American hybrid menu. Drink: Mostly American wine list. 2 Washington Street; 609-261-6149—TN
