Tallahassee restaurant guide to dining outdoors, indoors, takeout only

by Tallahassee Table

Restaurants are allowed to open both their indoor and outdoor seating areas, now without restrictions though many owners have decided to stick to keeping clients socially distanced at 50 percent capacity.

The situation is fluid but we’ll be updating this list. Share your information at [email protected] Please call to check hours before you go.

Reader Nicolas Petryk has taken on the task of compiling all restaurants he’s been able to find in Tallahassee and kindly shares his list. Nicholas is a duty officer for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, a wildlife rescuer for the St. Francis Wildlife Association and an organist/pianist at the Co-Cathedral of St. Thomas More.
