Open for Outdoor Dining – Health and Safety Protocols

Dear valued guest

We are so excited to welcome you for outdoor dining! We want to share what we’re doing to welcome you back as safely as possible.

Make a reservation here to join us for a safe outdoor meal.

Health and safety measures you can expect:

Outdoor Dining & Safe Distancing

We’ve reconfigured our tables to add outdoor dining and promote safe distancing.

  • Added 40 tables for outdoor open-air dining and built parklets to help keep you cozy and comfortable while you enjoy your meal.
  • Removed tables to allow 6-foot distance between seated guests and create wider walkways
  • Floor markings to indicate a safe distance between waiting guests

Team Health and Safety

We’ve enhanced safety protocols and training for our staff to prevent the spread of germs

  • Staff face coverings are required at all times
  • Staff will have their temperature checked daily
  • Reducing the number of staff that interacts with each table
  • Providing extensive education on how to stop the spread of germs.
  • Reinforce the mandate that our staff stays home if they are not feeling 100% or exhibiting any flu-like symptoms.

Enhanced Cleaning and Sanitation

We’ve implemented enhanced cleaning protocols using CDC-recommended supplies.

  • Sanitize table tops and chair backs between guests
  • Clean frequently touched surfaces at least every 30 minutes
  • Full-time sanitation employee to clean restroom fixtures, door handles and counters
  • Provide single-use menus and check presenters, and discarding after each use
  • Sanitize salt & pepper shakers and condiments brought out on request only
  • Contactless payment option
  • Hand sanitizing stations
  • Food-safe sanitizing wipes for staff to disinfect work stations including POS terminals and credit card readers.


  • We offer food and drinks to-go so you can enjoy your meal where you are most comfortable.
  • Contactless online ordering and payment
  • Safe distance line markings where you wait to pick up your food

How you can prepare

Some operations will shift with your safety in mind but mostly the experience will remain the same. Here’s what you need to know:

  • With fewer tables, we encourage you to make a reservation or join our online Yelp waitlist (before you even arrive) to skip the line, and limit host interaction.
  • We encourage you to explore PIER 39 while on the waitlist to promote safe distancing. We will text you when your table is ready.
  • Please arrive with your full party. We only seat full parties to reduce the frequency of others walking by your table.
  • We kindly ask that you wear a mask unless you are seated at your table.

Our goal is to welcome you back in a way that is both safe and comfortable for you. If you have any questions about our health and safety protocols, please email or call us.

We cannot wait to see you!
