Considerations for Patrons:
Do not visit a restaurant if you are sick. Service is limited to outdoor service and indoor service up to 50% capacity to seated patrons only, with tables placed so that patrons are at least 6 feet apart. Tables are limited to 6 persons, preferably from the same household. Bar areas where a bartender is present remain closed to patrons for seating and standing. No standing is permitted at the bar area. Customers should provide names and contact information and record time of arrival. Dining records are saved for at least 30 days. Patrons are required to wear face coverings while not eating or drinking (e.g. while ordering food and prior to being served, and after completion of meal), and maintain 6 feet of distance from those not in your party.
