ITHACA, NY — With summer in full swing, The Heights’ patio is the place to be.

The courtyard offers plentiful seating for both lunch and dinner.

When dusk hits, the patio is illuminated by tiki torches and string lights. Diners can order off of the bar menu for lighter fare in addition to the regular dinner menu.

In the photo gallery below, Ithaca Voice Dining took a look at the patio by day and by night.

For reservations, call (607) 257-4144.
