The votes are in!  Locals voted for their favorite outdoor dining spots in Lebanon out of ten options and here are the top 4.

Winner For Overall Outdoor Dining Experience 

Lui Lui's at the Powerhouse Mall Plaza has a lovely outdoor dining area that is shaded and looks out onto a nice private grassy area.  If you sit on the right you may even get a nice view of the river.  Bonus!  They even have a bocce ball court on the grass so challenge your friend or family member to a game.  It's also a cozy spot for just a few people to dine, ranking number three in this category.

2nd Place for Overall Outdoor Dining Experience

Three Tomatoes on the green in Lebanon was a favorite for overall dining and came in first for a cozy spot for just a few people to dine outdoors. They blend casual and sophistication well: potted plants, large shaded awning so everyone is cool, regular tables and chairs (not plastic), and tablecloths. I like how the spot is convenient and in the heart of Lebanon.  Enjoy easy parking in the public parking lot behind the building.  

3rd Place for Overall Dining Experience

Salt Hill has a great outdoor dining area sectioned off along the pedestrian mall in Lebanon. It's great for just a few people to dine outdoors and came in 2nd in this category.  I'd drink a rootbeer float and enjoy a sandwich here any day while soaking up the sun.  

4th Place for Overall Dining Experience

The Baited Hook on Route 4A in Lebanon is a wonderful place to eat outdoors whether it's just you and a friend, a group, or your family.  It ranked number 4 for cozy outdoor dining spots too.  You can dine at one of their picnic tables or in their screened-in porch, both look out over beautiful Mascoma Lake. They even have an ice cream window.   I would find this place so relaxing to eat outside at.  UPDATE NOT OPENING THIS YEAR - LET'S HOPE IT COMES BACK!
