We’ve mentioned this before, but we’ll say it again. Most restaurants are severely understaffed right now and the dining experience at your favorite hot spot may not be the same as it was before the pandemic. Please be patient and kind. Restaurant owners, managers, and servers are doing their best to navigate through this. Remember the Golden Rule and treat others the way you want to be treated.

Here's a complete list of who is already open, and opening soon to welcome diners outdoors. Please note that this is the list of local businesses that have already confirmed that they are opening as of now. We will update this list as more information becomes available. If you are aware of a restaurant that we may have missed, kindly let us know so that we may include them.
