*The COVID-19 crisis issued in a new era of hospitality- one that is reliant on take-out services and supplies that we could not have planned for. In an effort to be completely transparent, we have added a 10% charge to our take-out options to account for the packaging, online processing, and credit card fees that aid in our ability to provide take-out meals. Thank you for evolving with us and for continuing to support small, locally-owned businesses!*
