Outdoor Dining

Outside dining (with reservations) is now available at several of our casual eateries and 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.  

Some restrictions apply. 

When you're ready, we can't wait to welcome you back to The Classic Coast! Rest assured, local restaurants are doing everything they can to ensure the safety of all. All we ask when you land on these shores is that you play your part in keeping everyone safe: Please be kind, wear a mask, wash your hands and maintain six feet of social distancing from others.

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

As of 3/19, indoor dining is allowed up to 75% capacity and Outdoor dining is allowed at 100% capacity. A maximum of eight (8) people per table is permitted both indoors and outdoors in accordance with the guidelines on social gatherings. Customers are encouraged to minimize the number of non-household members they dine with. 

Remember: No matter where you plan to dine, 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.
