Nothing says summertime like eating outdoors.

In honor of the first day of summer on Thursday, OpenTable has released its annual list of the 100 best restaurants in America for al fresco dining in 2018.

Culled from millions of OpenTable reviews, the list includes restaurants in 22 states, each with its own stunning views or cozy surroundings. California and Florida are home to more than half of the restaurants on the list - no surprise there - but there are plenty of representatives on the list for those who don't live near the coast, too.

Read on to discover where you should eat this summer for an unforgettable outdoor experience.
