If you’re looking for lunch or dinner with a view of the water, check out Marina Cafe’s deck next to Great Kills Harbor. The outdoor tables here are mostly shaded by umbrellas, and you can eat things like shrimp cocktail and crispy fish tacos while you decide which yachts look sleekest. Call 718-967-3077 for a reservation ahead of time.
