  • 82 Queen has an absolutely great courtyard, but the prices are a bit lofty. It's at, um, 82 Queen.
  • The Charleston Grill has a great courtyard inside the Charleston Place -- again, a bit steep in price. They're at 224 King Street.
  • And let's not forget Salty Mike's Deck Bar which has view that rivals Fleet Landing and has more of a bar feel. It's at 17 Lockwood (Yes, that's downside: You have to traverse Lockwood).
