Philadelphia Dining: Liberty Point, Philadelphia’s ‘largest outdoor restaurant’, opens Tuesday

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — The Liberty Point restaurant along the Delaware River officially opens Tuesday afternoon.

Action News examined the transformation of what the owners call the city’s largest outdoor restaurant, located next to the Independence Seaport Museum on South Columbus Boulevard.

A few highlights: One of Liberty Point’s four bars will be staffed with nearly 10 bartenders. Then there is a 12-top, with another private space below, ideal for smaller events. There is also a large area for outdoor entertainment with live music on weekends.

Every part of the restaurant offers stunning views of the Delaware River.

“Every part of the restaurant has a beautiful view of the water. You can see both the Ben Franklin Bridge and the Walt Whitman Bridge, you can see the boats go by, and it’s really a connection between everything that’s going on on the waterfront,” owner Avram Hornik said.

Hornik says that’s what makes the restaurant so unique.

“We’ve spent the last year transforming the Seaport Museum’s outdoor patio into the largest open-air restaurant in Philadelphia,” Hornik said.

The nearly 30,000 square foot space can accommodate up to 1,400 people.

Its three levels are family-friendly and can accommodate private events like rehearsal dinners and birthday parties.

Golden views and a one-of-a-kind restaurant transform the landscape of the Delaware River.

“They’ve been developing Penn’s Landing since I’ve been alive, almost 50 years now. I think the Delaware Waterfront Corporation has really taken a leap forward,” Hornik said.

Hornik also owns Craft Hall on one section of the river with this new business at the other end, plus Morgan’s Pier in between.
