While many restaurants reopened their dining rooms (at 33% capacity) and are offering outside seating, some are holding off until later dates.

Owensboro Times has started a list of restaurants that includes their reopening dates and dining options.

This is not an all-inclusive list. Customers should call the restaurant for hours of operation or any other questions.


If you’d like your restaurant included on the list or the dining options change, please have a member of management or the owner email with with the following information:

  • Name of restaurant
  • Reopening date, or dates if they are different for dining options
  • Dining options (inside, outside, carryout, delivery)
  • Any specific info customers need to know (no buffet, if masks are required, etc.)

Openings refer to dining rooms, as most places already offer curbside, delivery, and/or drive-thru. Some buffets are open, but staff will serve customers as they walk through the line. Outside seating options are also noted.
