Are you just like the rest of us, looking for somewhere to sit down and enjoy a meal? We have all experienced cabin fever during this COVID-19 pandemic. As our South Carolina Governor works his #AccelerateSC plan, we are right here supporting our local businesses. Here is a list of restaurants that we have talked to recently. These are all local to the Irmo area and are serving diners outside or on their outdoor patios. We will update this list as more information becomes available. If you know someone that is open for outdoor dining, and is not already on this list, please reach out to us and submit their name.

As we called and talked to each of these restaurants, each wanted us to know that they're taking every precaution necessary to keep their customers, staff, and products safe during this reopening. Many cited that they have checklists of what the CDC, SCDHEC, and SC Governor all recommend as safety precautions and that they're currently using them to conduct business. One of these precautions are single-use, or to-go, containers being used instead of traditional dining sets (like plates, silverware, and cups/glasses). Of course, they're taking precautions by having their servers wear masks and follow proper hand washing procedures. Their goal is to help the community reopen without putting anyone in harm's way.

Note that these are listed in no particular order. The information listed below is accurate as of May 5, 2020, however may change due to the ever-changing situation regarding the COVID-19 threat and our state's response to the threat.
