The COVID-19 pandemic has had an impact on almost every aspect of our lives. We wear masks during our trips to the grocery store, we keep our distance from those not living in our household, and some of us are even guiding our children through school from home. With all of these changes, it’s only natural that we search for something that can make us feel normal again, such as eating out at our favorite seafood restaurant. 

In today’s blog post, we are going to discuss how eating out has changed during the pandemic, and how we can still enjoy ourselves in this new normal. Continue reading to learn more, and when you are ready to experience your favorite seafood restaurant again, the Lakeside Anchor Inn is now taking reservations for dine-in and offering takeout and delivery as well. 

Take Out and Delivery Are Becoming More Common

During the pandemic, ordering takeout and delivery has become much more the norm than heading to your favorite eating establishment to enjoy lunch or dinner. Ordering your favorite meals to be brought to your vehicle when you arrive at a restaurant or choosing contactless delivery limits possible exposure for you as well as the staff. These options have both become safer and more preferable for life during the pandemic. Although, we have to admit that at Lakeside Anchor Inn, we miss seeing our regulars and meeting new customers. We are currently open with limited indoor and outdoor seating, but we understand if you would rather enjoy our cuisine at home for the time being. 

Seating Is Limited

At the Lakeside Anchor Inn, as with all restaurants during the pandemic, while we are open for dine-in service again, seating has been limited. This helps us to follow social distancing guidelines and helps to keep you and our staff safe. Customers are not seated directly next to each other as in days prior. Instead, we space our tables at least six feet apart to help ensure your safety. This also allows you to take your mask off while at the table so that you can enjoy your meal. 

Outdoor Seating Is Recommended 

While we do have some indoor seating available at the Lakeside Anchor Inn, during the pandemic, being in the open air where there is natural ventilation and airflow is recommended. At Lakeside Anchor Inn, we always have an abundance of outdoor seating available, and you’ll still receive the same great food and excellent service that you have become accustomed to.

Sanitation Requirements

Another function that limiting seating serves is giving the staff more time to ensure that proper sanitation requirements are met. This includes everything from the staff wearing masks, washing their hands, and wearing gloves to sanitizing door handles, tables, and other high-traffic areas. At Lakeside Anchor Inn, we are dedicated to ensuring that our customers are safe dining at our Lantana restaurant, and our staff takes the extra sanitation requirements seriously. 

Same Great Menu

While many things have changed about eating at your favorite seafood restaurant among the COVID-19 pandemic, some things haven’t changed at all. We still feature our full menu that you have come to love. From our Oysters on the Half Shell and New England Clam Chowder to our New York Strip and Gator Bites, whether you decide to order takeout or come to our restaurant and enjoy the experience, you are sure to find your favorites on our menu. 

Same Great Service

Whether you choose to sit indoors or outdoors at our Lantana restaurant, you can be sure that you will receive the same great service that you always have at the Lakeside Anchor Inn. While our staff may look a bit different with their face masks, that doesn’t change their dedication to providing you with friendly, personal service. Even during the pandemic, you can expect the same level of excellence from our staff that you always have.
