You know the drill - a ShackBurger, crinkle cut fries, and a shake. Shake Shack is reliable and delicious, and their Dumbo location is more of the same. This one has the added benefit of being across the street from Brooklyn Bridge Park, so order to-go (or order ahead if you want even faster fast food), and eat next to the river overlooking Manhattan and The Brooklyn Bridge.

Vinegar Hill House
One of our favorite restaurants in Brooklyn, especially in the summer when their back garden is in full swing. Bring some bug spray, eat a pork chop.
Celestine feels like a casual neighborhood restaurant, but this Mediterranean spot is on the water in Dumbo and has excellent views.
