As restaurants begin to open today, the South Carolina Restaurant and Lodging Association (SCRLA) genuinely asks those that choose to dine-out be courteous and understanding as we reopen restaurants and welcome you back. Restaurants face new challenges in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and have strict guidelines to follow to help them safely serve you, the guest. The safety and wellbeing of staff and guests will be top-of-mind as we charter these new waters. In order to do so, we need your help.  

Please respect the restaurant reopening guidelines and protocols adopted by the State by:

  •  Self-screening before entering the restaurant for any signs of COVID-19 including but not limited to a fever, cough, shortness of breath, or known close contact with someone who has COVID-19.
  • If you cannot enter the restaurant or are otherwise concerned about contracting COVID-19, please use our contactless delivery/pick up options.
  • Seating in restaurants have been reduced, if possible, we strongly encourage you to make a reservation or call ahead to determine wait times. 
  • Following the social distancing and sanitary guidelines that have been put in place to protect you and our other customers and employees.
  • Do not congregate in groups as you wait to enter the restaurant. Maintain at least 6’ apart from others. 
  • Once inside everyone is required to have their own seat and each family/household/party will need to stay at least 6’ apart from each other.
  • Maximum table seating is 8 people, if you have more than that you will need to sit at more than one table, and each table will need to be at least 6’ apart from each other. 

These guidelines are to protect the safety of you, other guests and our staff.
