  • Our entire staff will be following city-mandated safety protocols (e.g. wearing masks, practicing social distancing when possible, etc).
  • Staff will be manning the outdoor dining entrance to make sure people stay apart and don’t enter all at once.
  • Social distancing markers will be placed in areas with lines (six feet apart, like you see in checkout lines at stores).
  • Tables in our seating area will be spread out by 6-8 feet so households can distance from one another.
  • Patrons will be required to wear masks unless they are seated to dine/drink.
  • High-contact activities like games, contests and the kids’ zone have been eliminated from this year’s line-up.
  • Sanitizing stations will be positioned in various locations outside and inside.
  • Guests are encouraged to make reservations (inside and outside) to help us enforce safe capacity limits. Max = 6 people per table.
