Best Poolside Restaurants

The weather's warm. The sun is shining. You want to be outside by the pool (especially if you're visiting from certain other parts of the country). No matter how much you're enjoying basking in the sun or partying it up at a pool club you still have to take some time out to eat. Or maybe you aren't partying at the pool but you’d just like to dine al fresco with a view of sparkling water. Hey, it's the desert – we like to look at water whenever we can. Lucky for you there are lot of places in Vegas where you can dine poolside. Bonus: Flip flops and board shorts are acceptable attire at most of them.
