Bethany Blues of Lewes expands outdoor seating

June 30, 2020

Delaware is currently in Phase 2 of the reopening process, which means restaurants are getting back into a groove that includes new safety protocols and lots of outdoor seating.

Bethany Blues of Lewes is no exception, and it is making the customer dining experience as safe and friendly as can be with new, expanded outdoor seating.

“We have added outdoor, tented space and renovated seating in our pergola area to enhance options and ambiance. And put lots of safety measures in place,” said Jessica Nathan, director of operations. “We are so excited to welcome people back and to offer beautiful outdoor seating. People are loving the option, and it feels good to them as an additional, safe dining choice.”

During Phase 2, reservations are highly encouraged because Bethany Blues fills quickly and seating is limited.

Bethany Blues is committed to safety in the restaurant to ensure that Delawareans can enjoy its delicious barbecue and drinks. It goes above and beyond to exceed safety standards, and the reason for this is simple: “We want to ensure the safety of our staff and our guests and be part of the responsible reopening of Delaware,” said Nathan.

Safety protocol at Blues includes, but is not limited to, socially distanced tables, sanitizing stations in the dining room, face masks for all staff, daily wellness checks for all staff, touchless restroom equipment including foot pedals for opening the door without using one’s hands, and disposable menus. All staff has also gone through additional food safety and sanitation training. All customers are required to wear masks until they are seated at their tables.

The management has honed the process to minimize contact so customers are greeted at their cars and when their tables are ready, the hostess takes customers directly there. The Blues team members have really thought through the experience in order to keep the establishment open in the safest possible way.

Of course, for every diner who wants to be in the restaurant, Bethany Blues knows there are still many who for health reasons are isolating at home. Contactless delivery service and curbside pickup will continue to be available. To schedule contactless delivery or curbside pickup, or to reserve a table, go to
