Coronavirus Update

We are pleased to be able to open again for dine-in customers! In order to keep all of our customers and employees safe, and to stay in compliance with current guidelines, maximum guests per table is 6. We cannot move tables, hold tables, or guarantee larger parties will be seated close together. Reservations are not accepted and we will require all customers waiting for a table to respect social distancing rules. Additionally, all outside food and/or drinks (including birthday cakes and desserts) are not allowed to be brought to the restaurant. And finally, we must limit each party's time seated at their table to a maximum of 2 hours. Thank you for your understading, and for supporting us. Please stay safe!

Unfortunately we cannot allow pets on our deck. Thank you.
