COVID-19 Update (Click Here)

Yes, we’re open for business but because of COVID-19 we have had to implement the following:

We are NOT accepting Reservations; we’re seating everyone first come first served.

All guests that are in our inside dining portion of the restaurant are required to wear a mask when not seated at a table per city ordinance.

Groups larger than 10 people will have to be split up and seated at different tables in order to abide by social distancing guidelines.

We’re stopping takeout at 5pm. If you have a takeout order, we’re happy to help 11am to 5pm.

Thank you for your understanding.
