Restaurant guide: Who’s offering dine-in service, takeout only

by Tallahassee Table

Restaurants are allowed to open both their indoor and outdoor seating areas with restrictions. The governor has allowed restaurants to increase seating from 25 percent to 50 percent although not all restaurants have made the switch. We expect there will be more changes so keep checking back. Customers have to be seated six feet apart inside and out.

It’s hard to keep up with which restaurants are opening, opening only outside or inside and outside or continuing with takeout only. The situation is fluid but we’ll be updating this list. Share your information at [email protected]
