COVID-19/Coronavirus Update:

The State of Florida recently removed all restrictions in place for restaurants regarding the COVID-19/Coronavirus outbreak.  With that said, we do not plan to make changes to the program we have put in place, with the exception of increasing seating capacity back to 100% (which will put some tables closer than a six foot separation).
