FAQs & Our Policies

We know some of you still have some questions as to what to expect from your visit — please read the following and then reach out if there’s anything else you want to know!

We also want to share with you all that we are doing to offer you the safest, most enjoyable experience possible, following all of the CDC, State and Local guidelines:

Enjoy this beautiful weather to the fullest with our outdoor seating, at tables set 6 feet apart with the warmth and ambience of outdoor heaters and fire pits & our new spring specialty drink menu! And we also offer indoor seating in our main dining room. Call ahead to reserve your table for busier times.

Our employees are the best, and so are you! So to protect everyone our staff have daily health checks in addition to wearing a mask and gloves throughout their shift. And we ask that our patrons wear a mask whenever they’re not eating or drinking in order to keep everyone as safe as possible, thank you!

We are of course going above and beyond with all of our cleaning and sanitizing efforts. Our restaurants have been thoroughly cleaned and our kitchens and restrooms sanitized with safe practices and protocols in strict adherence. We are be providing hand sanitizer for guests, but bringing your own hand sanitizer is always recommended. 

If you are in a high risk category, while we would love to see you, please understand the potential risks associated with visiting. Of course, our curbside pick-up is still available!

Lastly, please help us continue to maintain the best practices possible with social distancing. We care about both our employees and our patrons and are doing our best to protect everyone, while still providing the wonderful Scotch Plains Tavern experience, and once again the joys of Dining Out!!

Thank you!
