Dining Guidlines

For Our Guests

  1. We are accepting reservations for our main and side patios. We highly encourage the use of reservations
    • Our front patio will be available for walk-in dining.
    • We are not offering walkup bar service.
    • Due to reduced occupancy and the increased time needed to sanitize tables between seatings, parties of four or less will be given a reservation time of 90 minutes, and parties of five or more will be given a reservation time of two hours. Reservation times are based on your originally scheduled time slot - if you are late, it cuts into your time.
    • Tables for reservations will not be held after 15 minutes past the expected arrival time without a phone call.
    • Our maximum party size is 8 people.
    • At this time we are unable to accommodate private events
    • A phone number is required for all reservations and walk-ins.

    • If inclement weather arises when seated, food will be packaged to go and guests will still be responsible for their check.
  2. All inside dining is prohibited.
    • If the weather does not permit outside dining, curbside pickup only will be available.
    • We are currently allowed to sell out full bar (including cocktails) togo.
  3. Face coverings are required at all times a guest is not seated. This includes, and is not limited to, entering inside to use the public restroom and when being brought to your table by an employee. Guests will not be seated if they are not wearing a mask.
  4. Social distancing is required. Guests must remain seated during their meals. Guests must remain six feet apart in the restaurant: this includes while waiting in line for the restroom or while waiting to be sat.
