Captain's Table Apps @ Sunset


Many restaurants are re-opened and ready for business! We've called literally hundreds of small businesses over the past couple of months and  launched a larger section to help restaurants and other small businesses get the word out as to what new services they are offering visitors and residents. Visit our microsite #BestSideYourSide for breakouts of restaurants by take-out and/or delivery, interesting "feel good" content, and ways YOU can support the industry and sport a limited edition retro Pure Florida t-shirt. These are great folks, they're our friends and neighbors, and they're some of the hardest-hit financially during this crisis. If you are in a higher-risk category, never fear, many restaurants have implemented take-out and delivery services, many of which they'll continue to offer.

Note on bar restrictions: While establishments that make more than 50% of their revenue on alcohol have had to stop offering drinks for consumption on their premises, those that offer food as well can remain open.. 

Here are quick links to restaurants offering take-out and/or delivery:
