Governor DeWine has given the all clear for restaurants to serve on their patio’s starting this Friday. A prohibition against gatherings of more than 10 people remains in place, so please, if you are going out be sure to keep your group small, be courteous to all, remember many restaurants may not have been able to bring back their complete staff and that wait times will probably be longer than usual. We also encourage you to wear a mask when you go out, and most serving staff will be wearing them as well. Once you are seated at your table, you of course may remove your mask to eat and drink.
In a survey we did in our DaytonDining group on Sunday, out of 500 responses only 15% answered that they would be on a patio this Friday. About 12% responded they’d be ready to dine inside by May 21st and 54% said they would continue to order carry out.
For those of you ready to party on a patio, below are the ones we’ve confirmed will be open. We will continue to update this list as we hear more. Please be aware that patio photo’s do NOT reflect the current seating. We are sure the COVID 19 appropriate spacing will be followed by our local restaurants.
