What to expect when dining out

The dining experience in Delaware will be different than your last visit but the food will be just as yummy! Here’s what to expect the next time you dine out. 

Firstly, please make a reservation before heading to the restaurant. To maintain social distancing, the restaurant may ask you to wait in your car until they call you when you’re table’s ready or have a table outside where you can check in before being seated. This will help make it easy to maintain social distancing by limiting gatherings around the entrances and exits. 

Some locations may have reduced hours or capacity please consider dining out locally during non-peak times such as; weekdays or lunch rather than dinner hours. 

Your host and wait staff will be wearing face coverings at all times. As a diner, you will need to wear your face covering while in the restaurant, except while you’re eating and drinking while seated at your table. 

Once shown to your table (which was required to be disinfected after the party before you), the staff will take care of you! All services will be done right from your table, so there’s no need to get up for anything else! The wait staff will bring your utensils, take your order and bring your food and drink to your table after you’re seated comfortably. Please remember when heading to the restroom to wear your face covering.

You’ll notice more room than last time! Tables and booths will be arranged six feet apart so expect some more open space or maybe an empty table or booth between your party and others.

Please remember to dine out safely by bringing your face covering and hand sanitizer, remembering to social distance and stay home if you're sick.
