Covid 19 presents special challenges to party hosting, and safety comes first. We can host your party, but would hold to strict guidelines. The biggest group we can handle is an outdoor group of 24 people. This group would be subgrouped at tables with a maximum capacity of 8. Guests are required to remain in their seats except when using the bathroom. Table service is provided. Guests may not mingle amongst tables or swap seats with guests from the same party at other tables. Masks must be worn at all times when not seated at your table. Some guests tend to keep their masks on even while socializing, marly sliding it up or down for sipping. We ask that our guests follow our rules and support our approach to safety. Questions regarding food service and other issues can bee handled on a case by case basis.
