Wet Your Appetite: Restaurants Are Opening Back up

Presented by Hometown-Motors, Inc.

May 15th Ohio’s restaurants can begin outdoor service as the state continues its Responsible RestartOhio phase for the food sector.

Since closing due the state’s Stay-At-Home Order, customers have been supporting local eateries through carry out orders or through online purchases such as the restaurant’s gift cards. But beginning Friday, there’ll be more face-to-face contact, albeit six feet apart, adhering to the state guidelines.

Here’s what to expect from some local restaurants, many of which have been providing carry out service, but some are re-opening for the first time since mid-March.

In many cases, restaurants are taking reservations due to limited outdoor seating. So, plan on calling ahead or check the establishment social media or websites before venturing out.

If we missed your restaurant, drop us an email: and we’ll get you added to our list.
