Through late October
Plattduetsche Biergarten feels like an authentic German beer garden and is one of Long Islander’s go-to places to celebrate Oktoberfest. This year, enjoy a socially distanced twist on the experience. Guests will be seated at tables in areas with room for six to ten guests each. Indulge in traditional German entrees - perhaps a giant pretzel imported from Munich? - and beer and listen to live music. No reservations taken, seating is first-come, first-served. Visit their website, Facebook page, or call the restaurant for details.
64 N. Country Rd., Smithtown
Through October 31
Have lunch or dinner in the outdoor beer garden at the Garden Grill in Smithtown. Choose from a special Oktoberfest menu that includes wienerschnitzel, sauerbraten, beef goulash, and more. Bring the kids – there’s a menu just for them, too. Oktoberfest flags and live music (weekends) set a festive mood. Choose from a selection of German beers to accompany your meal. They have heat lamps to keep you comfortable if the air gets a little chilly. Need more info? Check them out on Facebook, visit their website, or give them a call.
