When the weather is just right, one of the best summertime hang out spots is the patio! Whether you're having a cold drink or just hanging with friends, the deck is a great place to gather. Here are places with outdoor seating that provides a great view:


Rooftop Views:

The Pump House

This Rock Hill favorite has a rooftop bar that overlooks the Catawba River and is especially pretty when the sun is setting. If you've ever been here, it's no surprise that The Pump House was one of only 3 restaurants in South Carolina to make the cut on Open Table's "100 Most Scenic Restaurants in America" list in 2017! 

Fun fact: The Pump House is Rock Hill native and NFL super star Mason Rudolph's favorite restaurant. Remember to check in on the YoCo Taste Trail while you're here!
