Outdoor Dining Locations in Lancaster City

Lancaster City has officially moved to the yellow phase! You may be wondering, “What does this mean for me?” and “Can I go out to eat now?” The short answer is yes. However, going out to eat will look slightly different for now.

The yellow phase allows Lancaster City restaurants to open up their patios, courtyards, and rooftops to guests for outdoor dining. Restaurant goers are required to wear masks and practice social distancing. Many restaurants have maintained social distancing between parties by rearranging or removing tables to ensure six feet of separation. Please look for specific information on reservations, health procedures, and hours on the individual restaurant’s website and social media.

Remember there are plenty of Lancaster City restaurants that do not have outdoor spaces, be sure to support them by ordering takeout!

Check out Visit Lancaster City’s complete list of restaurants currently offering outdoor dining (and/or takeout!) in Lancaster City.

Moving into the yellow phase is an exciting step for Lancaster City, but our community remains committed to fighting COVID-19 by practicing social distancing, staying 6ft apart from those you do not live with, and wearing a mask or face-covering in public. Let’s continue to support our fabulous small business community here in Lancaster City!
