Just in time for the summer travel season, we’re pleased to announce the 50 winners of the 2011 Diners’ Choice Awards for Best Outdoor Dining in the United States. The list of winners is derived from more than seven million reviews submitted by OpenTable diners for more than 12,000 restaurants in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
The Gulf Coast city of Naples, Florida, home to pristine white-sand beaches, is also home to the nation’s best spots for outdoor dining, taking six places on the list, including Campiello and The Turtle Club. Eleven additional restaurants throughout the state of Florida were also winners. Eighteen winners hail from California and are scattered throughout The Golden State, from San Francisco to San Diego. Hawaii, America’s own tropical paradise, boasts eight winners, half of which are on the island of Maui. Arizona trails with three honorees, followed by New York with two, and Colorado, Las Vegas, and Texas each earned a single nod.
Use this list of winners as a guide during your summertime travels to make sure you’re making the most of your al fresco dining experiences. And, be sure you’ve got the OpenTable Mobile app on your device. Available for Android, Blackberry, iPad, iPhone, Nokia, Palm, and Windows, OpenTable Mobile applications ensure that you’ll find your way to a great table wherever your travels take you!
Congratulations to all the winning restaurants.
