Take a trip to the Mediterranean at this charming (and delicious) rooftop tavern. Located off Hillsborough Street near Downtown Raleigh, Taverna Agora features a tree-shaded outdoor patio and a robust Greek menu. The Grecian Grill Sharing Platter is a particular favorite, thanks to its variety of meats, seasonal veggies, and pita bread.

Humble Pie

Humble Pie is known for its creative New American dishes, as well as its airy outdoor atmosphere in the Warehouse District of Downtown Raleigh. Enjoy dinner outside on a covered patio surrounded by leafy green foliage, or head to the tiki bar for a beverage.

Winston’s Grille

Winston’s Grille has been serving up delicious New American flavors for over 30 years, and it’s no surprise that this popular Raleigh spot has endured for generations. Their specials blend unique flavor varieties for creative new tastes, but their homemade ice cream might be the best menu find.

Deep River Brewing Company
