Outdoor Dining

From casual eateries to cozy bistros, some overlooking the sea serving up “classic” New England fare. Combine it with a bucket of cold local beers, a glass of wine or a craft cocktail.   Fresh, savory dishes aren’t a trend here; it’s a way of life on the Classic Coast.  

When planning to visit a local restaurant, we ask that you please check their website for updates on new hours and regulations. Keep in mind, many restaurants continue to offer indoor and outdoor seating alongside take-out and delivery options.

As of 5/21/21, Indoor & outdoor dining is allowed at 100% capacity. CDC guidance says If you’ve been fully vaccinated you can resume activities without wearing a mask or staying 6 feet apart, except where required by state, local, rules, and regulations, including local business. Please be mindful of others, keep your distance, adhere to mask policies and wash your hands. Reservations at local restaurants, when available, are recommended. 

Remember: No matter where you plan to dine, please check to see if face coverings are required while waiting for your reservation/table; on your way to and from your table and if you leave to use the restrooms.
